July has been far from quiet, and with school now finished, the summer holidays can officially begin. So if you’re after some music for your time away (calling all teachers!) then we’ve got you covered with our round-up of new tunes over the past week.
The Death Of Pop – Breathing
This might well be the freshest tune you’ll hear all week, the promising sounds of The Death Of Pop with new song ‘Breathing’. Jangling pop with shimmering guitars and hazy vocals that are both nostalgic and current. The band are hitting the road this month, stopping by Bristol on 2nd August at The Crofter’s Rights.
Wolf Alice – Don’t Delete The Kisses
Following their explosive return with ‘Yuk Foo’, Wolf Alice bring more excitement with new track ‘Don’t Delete The Kisses’. Much different from their familiar grunge growls, adding more synth, shoe-gazing rhythmes and dreamy vocals that’ll sweep you off your feet.
The Xcerts – Feels Like Falling In Love
The theme of ‘new sound’ continues with the return of The Xcerts on ‘Feels Like Falling In Love’. This track is certainly more refined and towards pop, moving away from the fierce punchy rock of the past. But nonetheless we like it. A bold move that could well pay off in the long run.
Wide Eyed Boy – Loving You Is So Easy
Liverpool four-piece Wide Eyed Boy have definitely nailed it with their stunning new track ‘Loving You Is So Easy’. Three minutes of bass-heavy, funk-influenced rock ‘n’ roll – what’s not to love? Hard-hitting from start to finish.
Ghostpoet – Freakshow
Having unveiled details of his fourth studio album Dark Days & Canapés’, Ghostpoet has shared the song ‘Freakshow’. Gripping from the get-go, with post-punk guitar lines and provocative lyrics that no doubt make this one an album standout.
Sweet Baboo – Pink Rainbow
The creative genius of James Hankins returns in the form of Sweet Baboo’s new video for ‘Pink Rainbow’. Taken from the artist’s album Wild Imagination, the video and indeed track is as catchy and fun as you could get. So just hit play and let the imagination run wild.
