Happy Easter! Can you still say Happy Easter a few days after Easter? Who knows. I’m saying it regardless. Anyway, here’s this week’s new music roundup, kicking off with the brand new track from Black Honey. This is called All My Pride and is taken from their forthcoming Headspin EP:
Is it March already? February shot past, but there was still plenty of great music out there. Here’s our pick of the bunch, counting down from Demob Happy’s Nirvana-esque Young & Numb:
1 Demob Happy / Young & Numb
2 Mount Bank / Everything Is Glass
3 Remi Miles / Under Light Symphonies
4 IYES / Simmer (live)
5 Lionbark / Amongst The Many
6 Salt Ashes / Raided
7 The Fiction Aisle / Soon Enough The Morning Comes
8 Conrad Vingoe / Fail
9 Caveman Genius / My Ford Sierra Needs an Oil Change
10 Record/Start / Rock from Afar
Here’s our mid-February new music round up. Since it’s only been a week since our last post, it’s a much more manageable chunk of tunes than last time!
Demob Happy have posted a new tune to coincide with news of the European tour that they’re heading off on next month. Young & Numb takes the band off to a heavier place than some of their previous releases, but there’s still plenty of melody in there. It comes out as a single later this year on Milk Parlour Records. The tour takes in Belgium, Denmark and Belgium before heading all around the UK, finishing off with a hometown gig at The Haunt on 24th April. A full list of tour dates is available on the band’s website.
Mount Bank premiered their new track Everything is Glass on The Fader last week, and now it’s publicly shared on soundcloud we can post about it too. It’s taken their upcoming EP Island Life, which is out on Donky Pitch on 9th March. Things start with glassy synths and a simple piano motif, with percussion and reverb building as the track goes on.
Yesterday Bentcousin tweeted at us to give us a heads up about their new track Time Will Tell. This is the band at their simplest – just Amelia (or at least, we couldn’t hear Patrick on the track), accompanied by an acoustic guitar:
Jolta‘s PR people have sent us four emails in the past five days about their debut EP Sunset Surrender, so they’re obviously keen for us to write about it. Sunset Surrender is also the name of the lead track, three and a half minutes of guitar and organ driven rock’n’roll, and comes out on Republic of Music on 6th April:
Last, but by no means least we have have Under Light Symphonies by Remi Miles. It’s taken from an EP of the same name which is out now and is a lovely breezy pop song to help you get rid of the thoughts of winter:
