After spending last weekend in a field in Norwich, UK working at a festival you sometimes yearn for a bit of a festival vibe in the days after. Spoonty is exactly what you’d hear walking through a teepee at 2am in the morning in a field that would make you want to stay out till 6am regardless.
To me Kins have a special something – the same something that I heard the very first time Bombay Bicycle Club’s music came through my ears. Yes they were indie with a bit of rock, but they had something that set them apart from the crowd. Kins are an amazing new act from the UK who I cannot wait to hear more from.
Keen to hear more about London, UK based band STORMS. They have harnessed the joy of 00’s post grunge and combined it with the carefree indie sounds not too dissimilar to Peace or Circa Waves.
Enjoying this new alt. rock from Aussie’s Eat Your Heart Out who have created a strong style rivaling the likes of Brit staple acts Lower Than Atlantis. But, with a strong and confident female lead!
Today could have been awful. I mean…for a short while it was. Then I put some headphones in and chilled. This track saved today from being a headache and a miserable evening. Beautiful future R&B from Nao really spun things around in my world as well as showing off how effortlessly brilliant she is.
Matt Stockl is a gem from Scottish Highlands. If you want to be sarcastic you might think he wears a kilt and plays the bagpipes. He does neither, but he does make brilliantly stripped back traditional indie tunes – beautifully DIY and wonderfully catchy.
JAWS are reliving their 90’s grunge youth in 2015. And they’re very welcome! Listen to this stuff. Fitting in there among the likes of Violent Soho (off of Australia) and bringing something more international into the UK music scene I can’t wait to catch these guys on tour / in festival season this year!
And signing off this week with some indie wave from Szymon. My body keeps telling me that it’s Friday – so I’m enjoying some Friday-vibe music like this.
