New Brighton Music

Here’s this week’s slightly late new music post. This is actually a post I started writing a fortnight ago, didn’t finish, then went on holiday, so it’ll be followed up very quickly with another new music post of everything that’s come out in the last two weeks. Hold onto your hats, it’s going to be a busy few days on the blog:

Welcome to what’s probably our last New Music post of the year. We’re going to go into hibernation mode soon, with maybe just a post with some of our favourite tracks, and then we’ll be back in the new year, bright eyed and bushy tailed. But for now, it’s business as usual:

Artist: Blood Red Shoes
Track Name: Howl
Taken From: Get Tragic album
Release Date: Howl out now, Get Tragic out 25th January

Brighton Music Blog Great Escape / Alt Escape 2017 preview

TGE17
It’s almost that time again – the highlight in the Brighton musical calendar, when anywhere you can fit in a PA becomes venue for a few days. Yes, this coming weekend is The Great Escape Festival. We haven’t finalised our plans, but we’re probably going to end up seeing more Alt Escape stuff than proper Great Escape stuff, because that’s where the bulk of the local bands are playing. If you haven’t got yourself a ticket yet then you can get into all the Alt Escape stuff without one anyway.

It’s been less than a week since our last new music round up, but this week we have NINE new tracks to share. So without further ado… We got our first taste of Fröst last November when they shared their debut track Crackling on the Wire. Three months later they’ve shared another – this one is called Keratin:

Here’s this week’s New Music roundup. We’re kicking off with Our Girl whose EP Normally comes out on local label Cannibal Hymns on 18th November. The video for No Big Deal taken from the EP was featured on Vevo this week. Good work Our Girl!

We posted the audio for the new Gang single Dead in our last New Music roundup, but with a track name like that they would have been missing a trick if they didn’t do something to celebrate Halloween earlier this week. Right on cue they sent us the video:

Kudu Blue have a new track out called NGFM. They finally play their first headline shows later this month, in London on 16th November and at the Hope & Ruin on 17th.

It’s been a while since we wrote about The Space Agency, but they’ve just let us know about a double A side single The Devil’s Saddle / Tiger Paw, out now on their own label Tremolo Records and available to buy through their bandcamp page.

The latest band to sign up to the Communion singles club are MarthaGunn, who’ve featured on these pages before. The lead track from their single is Honest, which you can hear below. Look out too for the acoustic video of the track filmed in a church in Wales.

In advance of the release of their album Abstract Figures in the Dark, which comes out a week tomorrow, Tigercub have shared a video for  Memory Boy, made up of footage shot at their gig in October at Patterns:

Rounding up this week is This Party, whose new single Money comes out on Moscow Let’s Go records on 14th November
