Trey Wonder’s latest single is an indie-rock smash that brings together the raw energy of the genre and the classic riffs and pace of a simpler time.
It’s the sound of a band who are naturally inclined to do this – you can hear it in every flicker of character that is the riffs and the voice and the melody and the lyricism. Things build up effectively from the verse to the hook, and that rising energy represents well the underlying inspiration for the song.
Without a doubt, Another Day Dawns is the next truly great rock band.
Killing Pickle is a great track, one with an immersive sense of rising passion and energy, and the sort that offers up an immediately familiar intro once you’ve heard it even a single time. An indie dance-floor smash but also something to provoke a slightly deeper level of thought at the same time. Well worth a spin.
PINING work hard to keep indie-rock alive and vibrant with this latest single When the Streetlights Come On. There’s a notably raw sound to the recording, giving off a genuine and fairly live aura.
Aiden Hatfield has created a community around his sincere take on depression, and his latest single, ‘This Horror In Me’ is not only an absolutely fantastic rock tune, but also an honest depiction of dealing with such daily struggles.
“Bands always disagree but one thing we don’t disagree on is creativity. Like I’ve touched on previously, we let each other be as creative as we can and as long as you are playing for the song and not for yourself it works for us.”
During times as divisive as these, it’s easy to forget that we are all human, living together, not apart. Luckily for us, Mark Ambuter has created Love is Everywhere to remind us all of that.
An emotional yet still cinematic journey, into which the leading singer pours soulful poetry – weaving around you a beautifully ambient blanket of warmth. This is a personal favourite from Glorybots to date, and an easy song to escape within.
The band’s sound is classic, not instrumentally groundbreaking but strong enough to impress and entertain. What gives them their edge though is the songs, the approach, the heart.
Creatively walking multiple lines between raw indie rock and dreamlike shoe-gaze or grunge, James Dean Death Machine presents a notably live sound on this album Leave a Pretty Corpse – inviting the listener to stand front and centre as this rain of bass-lines, beats and vocal grit pours down before them.
Boo Cat is alternative, for sure – appealing for its edgy weirdness & the way the music & the voices do whatever the hell they need to. At the same time, the melody is undoubtedly something of an ear-worm – I’d be surprised if anyone could walk away not humming at least one line from the song.
