March Top Ten

Yes, yes. We’re almost a week into April. But we’ve had Easter in the way, and we were overwhelmed with new music last month. Here’s our top picks:

1. The Go! TeamWhat D’You Say?

Highlight of the month for us was the brand new Go! Team album The Scene Between. If you haven’t gone out and bought it yet what are you waiting for?

2. IYESGlow

Glow was originally meant to be out at the tail end of last year, but being pushed back a few months in record company schedules makes it no less majestic.

3. RockerswitchShow Me

Rockerswitch’s debut starts off quite lazy and gradually gets more and more spaced out. Great stuff.

4. Mount BankEverything is Glass

We love everything on Mount Bank’s Island Life EP but opener Everything is Glass is our favourite with it’s bright synth strings and piano motif.

5. TigercubHold On

Showing a more mature side than seen on their previous releases, Tigercub’s latest demo was so good it got picked up by NME and streamed on their website.

6. Foreign SkinEnemy

A favourite from their live sets, Foreign Skin has finally shared the beguiling Enemy on their Soundcloud stream

7. AmbassadeursCan’t See You

Can’t See You is the first taster from Ambassadeurs next EP. On the strength of what we’ve heard from Ambassaders in the past it’s almost inevitable that we’ll be featuring other tracks from the EP in coming months.

8. Sea BedHaunted

Sea Bed have shared a couple of tracks from their upcoming Rosso EP which drops next week. Our pick of the two is the almost garagey Haunted.

9. GAPS – All Me All You

GAPS debut album comes out in May. As well as featuring a couple of their older singles it also includes All Me All You, the first new track taken from “In, Around The Moments”

10. Fools EmpireThe Professionals

Last up is The Professionals, the first of three singles coming out in a sequence from Fools Empire. Can’t wait for the other two.

New Brighton Music – The Go! Team, Self Help Group, Sea Bed, Fools Empire

Here’s this week’s new music roundup which starts off with a video and a whole heap of news about The Go! Team.

These days people are more likely to visit Buzzfeed than more traditional media, so with that in mind, The Go! Team have premiered a new video for What D’you Say? there. It’s not just the one video either – every day this week they’re putting up a new video. What you won’t find over on Buzzfeed is news about the band’s tour, kicking off on 5th June in Bristol and finishing up with a hometown gig at The Haunt on 4th July. Tickets go on sale this friday.

Next up is a track called Caves, by a new band called Sea Bed. Sea Bed are made up of Lizzie Massey and Jim Corbin, who used to be in Tiny Dragons. They’ve put the rock side of their character to bed with their old band name and have embraced dance music still layered with live instruments to give the sound a more rounded feel. Caves is taken from the Rosso EP, out on 6th April on DEPF records.

Next up is a new remix of a Self Help Group track. The original version of Prisoner appeared on their album Not Waving but Drowning, but you can grab a free download of the Small World Orchestra remix over on bandcamp:

Fools Empire are a new Brighton Based five piece playing soaring rock. The Professionals came out last friday and is the first of a set of three singles that the band are putting out this year.
