‘Secrets’ sounds like the sonic embodiment of your favourite desert. It’s a sweet tune made by Norway based Great News. There’s some nods to Grimes in their choice of synths and melody writing; the wandering lead lines and wobbly pitches. The rhythm section locks the song tight, and gives it a bit of bounce – […]
Pandemic hail from sunny Oz and create wonderful beachy pop-punk. Whilst it’s stupid to ignore the influence bands like FIDLAR and Violent Soho have had on this scene, Pandemic still manage to chuck something different in with their track ‘Heck’.

EAT are quite mysterious. All I can find on them on their social media, is that they’re British, and that ‘Byker Drone’ is their debut release. If J Mascis discovered caffeine, he’d write ‘Byker Drone’. It’s a wonderful piece of music, and very promising.

First are a three-piece garage-rock band tucked away in London. I’d never heard of them and still don’t understand why not – they’re insane. First have nailed the ’90s alt. rock sound (think Pavement and tinges of early Weezer), but still they manage to put a little something of their own in. It has a […]
I can’t find much about Tempesst online as they’re pretty new, but from I’ve read and heard they’re worth keeping an eye on. They’re kind of like a sun-dazed Fleet Foxes, with shades of Tame Impala in the vocals. Their debut track ’Tidal Wave’ made an impact, earning positive reviews from DIY and NME. Their […]
