Returning two months after debuting the opening chapter of a three-song saga, Barcelona-born artist Fins Ara is now ready to divulge another fragment from his personal collection. The aching piece of ethereal woe has been gifted to Bitter Sweet Symphonies to share in the first play.
HAWK continue to create a perfect balance between beautiful vocals and grungy guitar licks in this most recent release.
Their first EP ‘Dark Matter’ brought tantalising glimmers of promise, now approaching a year and a half since the release, the London-based trio Wyldest readily welcome presentation of their breathtaking new single ‘Hitchhiker’, a track taken from their self-produced second EP.
The fast-paced ebb and flow of the proverbial ‘London Scene’ (which is in itself a meaningless marketing construction) provokes frustration amongst those who try to follow it. Some artists seem to come and go like the wind, promising to blow up, before fading into obscurity almost immediately; whereas others, producing sounds that seem to be […]
Calico hoods were headpieces worn by prisoners in the 1800’s that would cover the face, with only small eye-holes, a restrictive garment used to desensitise the wearer, rendering them unaware of their surroundings. Manchester songwriter James M Carson uses these coverings as a metaphor for how we evade our problems. As he puts it, “Out […]
Bath/Bristol-based quintet ZELAH launch a bold attack on the music scene with their debut single ‘Run Away’.
With so much great new music coming our way daily, we’ve compiled our favourites into an easily accessible format, aptly titled: #BitterSweetPlaylist. The idea is, once fully consumed, everyone has their shot at voting for their favourite track by means of the poll at the bottom of the page. We’ll tally up the votes and […]
Born in a small back room in Peckham, Videocean’s ‘Fruitless Fever’ is a testament to the DIY innovation of the artists and musicians who are bringing the district into the creative limelight. Clocking in at just over four minutes, every second of this song is one of pure euphoria, of absolute sonic bliss which wraps […]
Step into the sunshine with Young Earth’s ‘Worth It’, debuting below. The Irish group moving further forward from last March’s introductory ‘Got A Secret’, summon charging Kooks-esque indie for a gleaming summer pop rampage.
Continuing in the vein of critically-acclaimed ballad ‘Awards Night’, Richard Walters returns with ‘Starlight’ – a deeply personal track interspersed by heartfelt lyricism, redolent keys and real emotion.
My Crooked Teeth is the new project of Oxford-based singer-songwriter Jack Olchawski, whom you might remember as fronting the alt-country band Toliesel. Olchawski, who has been involved in a wildly eclectic set of projects in the last decade, is now emerging and becoming recognised as a songwriting talent in his own right. This new single […]
‘Gravity’, the sophomore single from Brighton’s Grymm leaves you holding your stomach and missing some teeth, as it bruises through beats and strums out shrieks.
Taking form out of various Kent scene bands, Tiger Blanket is more a supergroup (of the local variety) than a simple passion project. The brainchild of Graham Nunn takes cues from Talking Heads and Roxy Music with a modern update of the wonky indie-psych variety that tells of MGMT at their most obscure.
Manchester’s Liam McClair recently released his remarkable new single ‘Fame’ – peaking at number four on iTunes’ singer/songwriter chart, it’s clear to see it was a hit with the kids.
A jolly summertime scene is painted of the Northern Irish heartland in Swimming Tapes’ latest track ‘Queen’s Parade’, a nostalgic ode to the prized Mariners strip in Bangor (where some of the band grew up).
Dome Hall follow up last month’s debut release with ‘Nason’, a contemplative track that shows the introspective side of the band’s songwriting craft.
Psych rock band The Boxing present their excellent new single ‘One By One’. The feeling that this could easily be the coolest song from an angsty 1980’s coming-of-age film leads this fresh new sound into my favourites playlist this week.
‘Veer’ is the profound new single from Barcelona-born songwriter Fins Ara and the first of three releases forming his debut EP ‘A Love, Elusive’.
Brighton math-pop four-piece Orchards, preempt sunny summer skies with the release of latest single ‘Darling’.
Aylesbury lads Birthday Card make a dreamy debut with ‘Heartstops’.
