It’s been a few weeks since out last post for which we can only apologise – we had a holiday, then jet lag, and only now we’re back on the blogging wagon. In that time both The Magic Gang and Fickle Friends have released their albums, and it seems to have been one of the busiest periods for other bands to share new music. We’d have no hope of catching up if we wrote up our new music post the way we normally do, with us much info as we have and details of any upcoming gigs, so for this post we’re going to keep things brief – just names of bands and tracks – and hopefully by next week we can get back to normal.

The Magic Gang – Take Care

As mentioned in our last new music post, we’ve got some catching up to do. Apologies to any of the bands we’re writing about who got in touch with us weeks ago. Normal service should resume shortly.

First up is Psylhouette, a band from Brighton and Berlin who make beautiful motorik pop. Their new single is called Asking and features vocals by Juli Holz:

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.

We’ll hopefully have the third in our Brighton Rocks series for you some time this week, but until then, here’s a regular dose of new music. Our first track is the new one from Fröst, their third in about six months. Delta Antenna wouldn’t sound completely out of place if it had been put out by Steve Lewis’ other band Fujiya & Miyagi:

Here’s this week’s dose of new music for you all, slightly bigger than normal because I didn’t get around to posting last week. Our first track is the new one from Sea Bed called Moving Ghosts, which gets a release on Four Thieves records on vinyl on 11th March (which you can pre-order here):

Miamigo have shared some more 80s-tastic synthpop. This is Pot Luck:

Thyla have followed up last year’s Us and Them with Car Crash, an ambitious, angular slice of guitar pop:

Great Pagans premiered their new single over on Steregum last week. The band are releasing  Call of the Wild on Anti-Ghost Moon Ray on 11th March.

Tuska are the third band we’re writing about who are releasing their new single on 11th March. Their new track is called We Could Be Alone, and is a must-listen for fans of Tame Impala. If you like what you hear you can catch the band at Sticky Mike’s on 4th March:

Landslide is the debut single from Loa Loa, a raucous three minute garage cacophony committed to tape at Brighton Electric

Changing tack completely, this is White Peaks, with their new dreamy electronic pop song Easy:

Nicolas and the Saints are releasing their album Years in the Making at the end of the month (or at the start of the month if you pledged to their indiegogo campaign). The album was literally years in the making, with recording taking place over seven years. Here’s the album’s penultimate track Been Hurt Before:

Warsaw Radio are returning to their Irish roots for the launch of their new single Down by the Sea. Their mini tour starts this time next week and takes in Dundalk, Dublin, Cork, Limerick and Galway:

 

 

 

Electric Greyhound make woozy electronica, and have just posted up their latest track Flounder:

Finishing up this post we have three videos – Just posted today was GAPS video for their track A World Away, from their album In Around The Moments:

Next we have the fuzzy shoegaze of Tuval‘s In My Head:

And finally we have a hip hop track sung in Albanian. This is Ledio, Te Lutem! by Via Tirana:
