As we start to kick back and enjoy the season that is Christmas / New Year it’s a good chance to reflect on the brilliant year, and the perfect opportunity to miss out on some ninja noisy music releases that might have slipped through your fingers! Like this beast from While She Sleeps! “Haunt” is yet another taste of what’s coming in 2019 🙂
This isn’t technically a recent release, but imagine if it was! A metal version of Panic! At The Disco‘s “The Chapter”….by none other than Panic! I’m still not 100% sure I can imagine that glorious snarl coming out of Brendon Urie’s mouth, but apparently it’s a thing. *Nice*
Keeping that savage energy, let’s check in on British band Monuments whose track “Leviathan” is still on repeat for me.
Switching things up a bit now with scuzzy rockers cleopatrick and their recent single “bernard trigger”. Slowly becoming a bit of a global cult love among you rockers.
Liily, based over in Cali, are making the perfect sunshine infused riffs that make me (based in the UK) yearn for festival season. Hopefully Europe will have you as a guest soon!
Australia’s Tired Lion are back again this time of year with a suitably fired-up rock number. A great introduction to the Aussie DIY x rock spirit that’s signature sound is spreading around the world.
Kent’s finest Indoor Pets are ramping up to their album release next year. In the meantime there are still many of you who haven’t heard their latest stuff this side of Christmas. Indie rock at it’s finest with a dash of eccentricity throughout.
The Messenger Birds were introduced to me via a friend in the US and are one of my favourite new (like, super new) sounds I’ve heard in 2018. Listen to this richness!
One artist I never thought would spread into my noisy music world again is Grimes. She’s created a bit of a monster here 😃
And taking it right through to indie spirit. Does this song not scream film end credits? Beautifully put together tune from Circa Waves here.
Whatever you’re up to, have an amazing holiday break.
I’ll catch you back here in 2019 for a little bit of a revamp and refresh 😎👊
