A follow up to their immensely well-received debut ‘I Knew You’ out earlier this year, Newcastle surf-pop dreamboats Seeing Hands have dropped their latest single ‘It’s True’.
Matthew And Me are back with their third release this year, in the form of new single ‘Silver’. Weightless and calm, ‘Silver’ sails smoothly along with serene guitar melodies and delicate vocals, before kicking into a powerful chorus, posing the question: “So what do we think of all this?”
The debut single from upstate NY trio Slumbers opens with a gentle, dazy guitar riff and serene, reserved vocals which seem to blossom as more layers are added underneath. Each added instrument or melody breathes new life into the song; the introduction of snare provides a subtle backbone, as the horns add a tasteful degree of […]
Sharply contrasting serene and rolling verses with harsh, snarling guitars in the choruses, and layering wonderful, composed vocals over the top, newcomers Dama Scout explode onto the scene with ‘Forget It’s Good’.
Back once again with his folk-tinged eccentric indie-pop, Toothless (AKA Ed Nash) has unveiled his next single on Island Records, accompanied by some striking, intriguing visuals. With captivating, deep soundscapes buried beneath dramatic, string-plucked melodies and absorbing, lifting harmonies (courtesy of The Staves), his latest release is theatrical, engrossing and charming.
‘Bliss’ is a wonderful, swirly piece of laid-back dream-pop, where the deep, relaxed vocals of Grant Williams echo tranquil, above serene synth-setting. Lifting gently in the choruses, then softly settling back into a dream-groove state in the verses, the track is hypnotic from start to finish. No subtle change is too jarring; yet each movement […]
Around six months ago, Newcastle indie-eclectic math-rockers A Festival, A Parade released their ‘A Piece Of Meat, An Irregular Heartbeat’ EP. Boasting bare-face originality, sorrowful charm and very subtle, underlying neuroticism, they quickly found their way onto the radar of taste-makers and bloggers alike. Though, with heavy buzz comes high expectation, and AFAP have certainly […]
The debut single from Miss Pompeii ‘Haru Haiku’ consists of chill and sparse synth backing with the striking vocals of Claire Whiting layered over the top, making for a wonderful electronic pop track which is lush in composition.
Newcastle quartet Seeing Hands have spent the past six months or so building a name for themselves in their home town, playing shows alongside local heroes A Festival, A Parade, The Great Curve and even making an appearance at Evolution Emerging 2016, and their name has sharply become one of excitable rumour.

With an obvious knack for writing beautiful, distinct, and wonderfully haunting ballads. The latest release from Westerman draws a slightly different approach forward, making ‘Mother Song’ all the more enchanting upon its gossamer caress.
He’s done it again. More effervescent and melodic than his debut release, ‘Terra’, the latest single from Ed Nash ‘Palms Backside’ is still hazy, wonderful and breathless in the same way.
Star Park’s ‘Don’t Dwell’ is a gloriously hazy – undeniably 70’s – endearingly bittersweet masterpiece. It is romantic in the truest sense of the word. Its nine tracks all hum heavily with a sort of ethereal fuzz, and each boast their own wonderful rustic charm. I am absolutely attached. I needed this in my life. […]
‘Glow’ is a beautiful and competent piece of electro-pop, with uplifting and gorgeous melodies accompanied by minimalist synth-drums and atmospheric strings.
It is difficult to pin down exactly what it is that gives Westerman that distinctive haunting sound, but there are qualities to his music which are bewitching and enchanting unlike anything else. Just as you’d expect, his latest release ‘Jericho’ is enchanting, prophetic and divine.
‘Terra’ is the first solo track from Bombay Bicycle Club bass player Ed Nash, and it really is something quite special.
Today’s track of the day is from indie newcomers Sea Span, with a mellow and calm slice of dreamy goodness. Atmospheric and ethereal, this song is radiant with positive and soothing energy. From it’s gentle, tranquil subtlety in the verses, to its lulling melodies and gorgeous bluesy undertones, this track is a blessing on the […]
The latest release from 23-year-old storyteller Westerman follows the charming fictional love story about a girl he meets in the French town of Saint-Tropez – inspired by his younger sisters mispronunciation of ‘Misanthrope’. Sweet, right?
Flaunting an American slacker swagger, ‘2AM’ is an earnest and endearing piece of music from Bear Hands, which throbs and chugs throughout with all the ache and emotional strain that comes with growing older.
