For those that haven’t heard of CHVRCHES before, their growing reputation has likened them to acts such as M83 & Tegan And Sara, and the sonic electro-pop sounding trio prove there is no such thing as ‘too much synth’ with track ‘Recover’.
James Blake, The King of ‘post-dubstep,’ has returned with his stunning new single ‘Retrograde’ which is the first single to be taken from his upcoming album, Overgrown. Blake is known for his groundbreaking and boundary pushing sounds and he certainly hasn’t disappointed with his new track.
If you’re looking for the very definition of a singles band, then Suede have always fit the bill. Even when they were on the wane with 2002’s mundane A New Morning, they could still nosh up ‘Obsessions’. So it’s a relief that with their first material in ten years, they haven’t lost their knack for creating solid gold singles.
If Ocean Colour Scene were a footballer, they would be Stephen Hunt. Despite getting on in years, they still come up with the goods and possess no end of graft and hard work. And yet despite their workmanlike approach, they continue to be a figure of derision for the press, and it’s all the more surprising when they come up with irrepressible ditties like this.
Combining stadium-sized percussion, anthemic riffs, and a sing-a-long chorus, with their latest single, LULS are setting themselves up for bigger and better things than ever before.
Ahead of the New Yorkers fifth studio album, The Strokes have offered up track ‘One Way Trigger’. Unfortunately, this is a failed attempt at reinventing themselves on behalf of the legendary Indie band.
It’s refreshing that while some bands who emerged from Britpop MKII have dissolved entirely – or become indebted to keyboard touching – that Leeds’ premier rockers The Pigeon Detectives haven’t changed one iota since bursting onto the scene with Wait for Me.
2001’s self-titled debut album was a rollicking mix of rock and roll excess, bruises and barnstorming tunes, which saw Black Rebel Motorcycle Club occupy the blues-heavy end of the garage rock revolution. By the time of 2003’s sub-par Take Them On, On Your Own though, there were seen more as the creepy goth kids who stand in the corner and wear all black because, you know, they’re “dark.”
Just when you think Birmingham’s new ‘indie’ scene couldn’t expand with another hot band. Our favourites Jaws have gave us an early Christmas treat.
Stop-start electric guitars and comforting lyrics, Two Door Cinema Club do their best to stay on the indie radar with ‘Sun’ from second album Beacons.
