Looks like we’ve got another week of sunshine ahead, which makes it all the more perfect to bring you some sizzling new tunes to accompany your playlist. Our round-up of the best new tracks of the past week, let’s go!
Arcade Fire – Electric Blue
Having teased a couple of tracks from their forthcoming album Everything Now, Arcade Fire have released one last song ahead of the album release with ‘Electric Blue’. If you thought their title track was brilliant, this one goes further beyond into the depths of disco pop with swirling synths, cool beats and Régine Chassagne’s dreamy vocals. All in all, it’s out of this world from Arcade Fire, making the wait for their album even more special.
Swimming Girls – 2 Kids
One of two tracks we’ve featured last week. Following their fantastic debut single ‘Taste Like Money’, Bristol four-piece Swimming Girls share new song ‘2 Kids’ which touches on young love and the passion that has been lost. Infectious guitar hooks and vocals that’ll sweep you off your feet, taking you into their dream pop fantasy.
George Glew – Bury Me
Track number 2 featured last week was the powerful and emotive debut single from Bristol singer-songwriter George Glew. ‘Bury Me’ is a brilliantly execution of songwriting and vocal that is simply divine. George kicks off his three night residency at The Gallimaufry on 25th July, and it’s one not to be missed.
Gold Class – Rose Blind
Following their explosive single ‘Twist In The Dark’, Australian punk rock four-piece Gold Class hit fans ‘Rose Blind’. Well not as hard-hitting as the previous release, but still rocking enough shoegazing material to get your ears hooked.
METZ – Cellophane
METZ have confirmed their return with a new album Strange Peace out 22nd September. The Toronto outfit are ones not to hold back with their sound and new song ‘Cellophane’ from the forthcoming record is no exception. The band will be going on a big European tour to celebrate the release, and are hitting The Fleece on 23rd November.
Wilsen – Final
“Brief but ever-lasting” was the impression left by Wilsen when they performed in Bristol back in April. The Brooklyn based three-piece have released a new video for single ‘Final’, taken from their brilliant debut album I Go Missing In My Sleep. A beautifully choreographed video that mediates the powerful message behind the stand out album track.
Becky Lawrence – That Guy
Country rock with a nail-biting twist. This fiery debut from Bristol singer Becky Lawrence, recorded at Puzzle Maker Studios is one certainly to keep an eye out for – signalling a confident and bright future for the emerging artist.
