The January blues are finally over! We begin the month of February with another exciting round-up of our favourite new songs this week. Hit the play button and ease yourselves into the weekend with these great new tunes.
Wilsen – Heavy Steps
The dreamy bedroom folk sounds of now Brooklyn based Wilsen supported Daughter on tour last year. The three-piece led by singer Tamsin Wilson are ready to shine with their forthcoming debut album I Go Missing In My Sleep. ‘Heavy Steps’ is the first offering from the album, both calm and collective as the song looks towards exciting times ahead.
Elder Island – Bamboo
We’ve been playing this song all week following Elder Island’s impressive live performance at the Louisiana as part of Independent Venue Week. This intoxicating dance pop tune is sublime from start to finish and one that’ll kick start your party this weekend. Listen below and read our review of the band’s live show here.
Makala Cheung – Fire
Celebrating Chinese New Year in style, Bristol pop singer Makala Cheung has released her new single ‘Fire’ – combining both traditional and modern day themes to form music of such elegance, colour and beauty.
Frontier Ruckus – Positively Freaking
We featured Frontier Ruckus in our round-up last week, and we’re doing so again having released another gem with new track ‘Positively Freaking’. Simple, upbeat and warm. If this doesn’t get you excited for their Bristol show next month then what will! Listen to the track here.
Rhain – Time Traveller
Another artist who impressed at the Louisiana’s Independent Venue Week showcase was singer-songwriter Rhain. This week she released an acoustic live session of ‘Time Traveller’ – stopping time itself with her mesmerising harmonies and piano chords that swallow you whole.
Bad Sounds – Meat On My Bones
If there was one song to end the week on a high it’s the splendid disco pop jams of Bad Sounds with new track ‘Meat On My Bones’ – packing all the groovy guitars, bass lines, drumming and vocals you could ever want. Quite simply a banger!
