A plethora of genres to pick through this week. From post-punk, to electronica, then rock ‘n’ roll and indie pop, finishing off with a big slice of noisy garage rock, there’s something for everyone this week.
L. D. Moses – Close As The Ceiling
The debut single from the newest faces to Leeds post-punk scene, ‘Close As The Ceiling’ brings back the sound of fellow Leeds groups Eagulls and Hookworms during their early days. However, it’s the resemblance to Jarvis Cocker’s vocals that truly sells L. D. Moses debut. A melancholic wave of disgruntled croons, reflecting on failed relationships, all wrapped around a familiarity that feels brand new is reason enough as to why you should immediately take notice of L. D. Moses.
Gold Fields – GLOW
Taken from their second LP ‘Dalawa’, Australia’s Gold Fields released the behemoth of a track ‘GLOW’ a couple weeks back with a video that’s almost six minutes long, and over on Spotify the full track lasts over eight minutes. A sophisticated blend of electronica, nu-house and indie rock, GLOW summons up the long lasting energy of late night clubbing, partnered together with visuals that will have you dancing along wherever a club or any free space can be found.
Bleached – Hard To Kill
LA sisters Jennifer and Jessica Clavin are well and truly back, as Bleached bring the second single ‘Hard To Kill’ from their third LP “Don’t You Think You’ve Had Enough?”. With their third LP focusing on sobriety, ‘Hard To Kill’ focuses on a close call with death, realising that your life needs to change, with the music video featuring the two sisters in a Bonnie and Clyde styled chase sequence, bringing a classic American western sound to the track.
Honey Moon – If I Could Only Dream
A charming piece of reflective indie pop, London’s Honey Moon continue to serenade their fans with the delightful ‘If I Could Only Dream’. Self described as ‘jangly croon pop’, Honey Moon are the latest act to capture the charming tone of nostalgic futurism, which acts such as Trudy and the Romance and the late Her’s have done so well in landscaping. ‘If I Could Only Dream’ looks back on life through tinted lenses, looking at the world in sepia tone, before lifting up the filter to reveal a world now filled with inspiring bright colour.
The Cosmics – Eyes
A good bit of noisy garage rock comes from Birmingham’s The Cosmics, having recently announced their debut vinyl EP, out June 13th, with the release of ‘Eyes’. Surpassing the three minute mark isn’t something you’d usually associate with a track that sounds as loud and fast as ‘Eyes’, yet The Cosmics whip up enough of a chaotic storm of swirling guitar riffs and sharp screams from frontwoman Erin Grace to make ‘Eye’s feel like a juggernaut of a track.
