As the rain continues to pour, with it comes new music. So not all bad, ey?
First, Sports Team announce their debut album Deep Down Happy with powerful new track ‘Here’s The Thing’, the current and significant lyrics paired with a fantastically joyous video. Electronic duo Purity Ring glitch and twinkle through dancing melodies in ‘stardew’ while Talk Show release the ultimate banger ‘Stress’, showcasing jangly guitars and chant-worthy lyrics.
Next, Metronomy hit once again with looping delight in ‘Whitsand Bay’, and Alesünd’s ‘All Hail To Your Queen’ mix techno and bongos to create a blend we never knew we needed. Backed by intricate strings, Chloe Foy’s vocals are rich and moving in ‘Never Be The Same Again’ (we look forward to hearing more from her), while Waxahatchee release new song ‘Lilcas’, reminiscent of Bob Dylan.
And finally, discussing the youth which face a daunting and modern world, Declan McKenna speaks the scary truth in ‘Beautiful Faces’ – big things to come from him – while fourpiece Glass Animals serenade a blue-haired flame in new track ‘Your Love (Déjà Vu)’.
