The Feed – your new weekly round-up and digest on all things new music
There’s something in the air at the moment which has got everyone in a good mood; also the weather is warming up too as we reach the final part of summer. Let’s hope this continues on for the duration, with these awesome new tunes satisfying your listening pleasures along the way.
Wild Ones – Paresthesia
This year has seen many comeback, but this one hits the spot the most with the return of Portland based indie pop five-piece Wild Ones. They were our band of the summer back in 2015 when the group released their debut EP Heatwave – shimmering listeners with surgery pop hooks, heartfelt songwriting and delicious harmonies. The band have now announced their debut album Mirror Touch via Topshelf Records and shared the LP’s first track ‘Paresthesia’. The sweet pop melodies return but alongside lyrics more personal than before – lead vocalist Danielle Sullivan soft vocals seamlessly blend with the instruments as the album touches on isolation and loneliness. The new song particularly explores mirror-touch synesthesia, a condition that allows one person to feel the same sensations as another. Overall a deeply emotive piece that see’s Wild Ones at their most potent.
Tender – Machine
Fresh from festival appearances at Latitude and Love Box, Tender have shared their pulsating new track ‘Machine’ as well as announcing a UK/US tour this Autumn to celebrate the release of their debut album Modern Addiction. Listening to the song’s intoxicating vibes, you’ll be addicted in no time.
Wyldest – -45
North London based three-piece Wyldest always impress with their beautifully crafted music. The band have gone through some changes, but their core essence of songwriting and originality remains as strong as ever. The band are set to release their new EP Hitchhiker next month, and have shared the record’s second single ‘-45’. Wrapping you instantly with glittering guitar lines, 80’s style synths and dreamy vocals by lead singer Zoë Mead; it’s nothing short of stunning from a band who now feel right at home.
Sauropod – By The Tree
There’s no better way to celebrate the signing to a label than by releasing a belter of a tune. Norwegian three-piece Sauropod have done just that with ‘By The Tree’ – hard-hitting and full of energy as they’ve announced their signing to Propeller Recordings.
The Flux Capacitors – Oblivion
Enter into the world of ‘Oblivion’ – The Flux Capacitors’s new tune takes a step away from their familiar rock heavy and into hypnotic psychedelia. Mind boggling and entirely their own, this will be stuck in your head for the rest of the week or more.
Rylands Heath – Skin
This upbeat new song from Luton based duo Rylands Heath will no doubt put a smile on your face. Charming, honest and sweet all at the same time; another glorious summer tune to add to your playlist.
