New Brighton Music

It’s been a while since we’ve done a New Music post, so here’s a round up of some of the things we think you should be listening to.

Two thirds of Dream Wife are from Brighton, but their third member Rakel Mjöll is from Iceland. Brighton’s been home to Icelandic musicians before – Emiliana Torrini lived here for a number of years – but she never rocked out like this. Dream Wife’s new release EP01 is out now on Cannibal Hymns, and this is the title track Hey Heartbreaker. The band play a late night set at Sticky Mike’s on 1st April at the new-ish Busy Doing Nothing night.

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:

Kicking off this week’s new music post is the latest track from David Harks, who featured in last year’s top ten tracks (which reminds us, we really should think about getting something together for this year). Tripping Ghosts is a more ethereal affair, mirroring the reflective nature of the lyrics. It’s out now on Jumjum records, backed with a remix by French duo Loframes:
