Our editor Mustafa is taking part in the Tough Mudder challenge this Saturday for charity Cots for Tots; you can sponsor him/donate to support a great cause here. In the meantime, he has asked us to put together a round-up of new tunes to calm his nerves and prepare for the obstacle ahead, and we’ve definitely hit that target. So here it is, check out this week’s hottest new tracks!
Wolf Alice – Beautifully Unconventional
Yes our affection for Wolf Alice couldn’t be more obvious. The band have taken over our ears and hearts with singles ‘Yuk Foo’ and ‘Don’t Delete The Kisses’ from forthcoming album Visions Of A Life. Now the four-piece have shared track no.3 with ‘Beautifully Unconventional’ – packing all the infectious guitar lines and grooves you could ever want.
Arctic Lake – Further
A welcome return for London three-piece Arctic Lake with this emotionally driven piece ‘Further’. The song is from the group’s forthcoming project which is due to be announced, but for now, let the song’s delicate instrumentation and heartfelt songwriting sweep you off your feet as Arctic Lake take a promising new turn.
Estrons – Glasgow Kisses
Speaking of emotional, Estrons have brought the ‘answer’ to previous single ‘Strobe Lights’ with new piece ‘Glasgow Kisses’ as the band describe the song as “a nursery rhyme about adult life. A bittersweet study of the fear of commitment and how people protect themselves by hiding their emotions.” It’s loud, blistering and holds nothing back.
The Horrors – Something To Remember Me By
It’s The Horrors like you’ve never heard them before. Following the metallically sounding ‘Machine’, the band have turn it up a notch with this groove-dancing number ‘Something To Remember Me By’. If you ever felt like dancing to The Horrors, this glorious synth pop tune will no doubt satisfy your wishes.
Bat and Ball – It Goes In
There’s no denying that London based group Bat and Ball hit you hard with spellbinding songs that’ll stick around for days. New cut ‘It Goes In’ does exactly that and more as the band’s ‘anxiety pop’ takes another explosive twist.
ThisisDA – The Blue
Rounding off the list is ThisisDA’s incredibly slick new track ‘The Blue’. With Jakuta on production duties, the bouncing cut beat along with the Bristol rapper’s collective words all but confirm his place as one of the scene’s best MCs.
