Taiwan’s 反覆墜落 Repeatdive return with a longer project of originals and a crisp, organic and emotive sound for this latest release.
The whole playlist slowly but surely secures itself as something of an indie classic – great listening for 2020 and beyond.
Despite their clear energy & presence online, there’s a certain introverted quietness to their writing & delivery. This is perhaps what reaches out more notably to the many who are feeling so lost & unsure right now.
Further securing their role amidst the future of pop-rock and indeed punk-pop, The New Starts Now bring through perhaps their strongest hit of songwriting yet with this brand new single.
It’s a profound and powerful topic, explored honestly, in an engaging manner, and with a certain lightness and bounce that ultimately helps soften the blow.
Maryland trio Homebase inject a much-needed hit of punk pop and rock into the music world with this refreshing EP of originals.
Energetically blending the nostalgia of nineties punk-pop with that of the Happy Gilmore glory days, Queensland’s Kid Fly kick into gear with a brilliantly well-crafted new single.
This feels like a slept-on classic from a simpler time, and still the concept focuses on something that much of modern music refuses to even attempt.
Beautiful, songwriting with meaning, crafted to reflect on the past, the present, and offer a simple yet sublime sense of well-being.
The Persian Leaps are an alternative rock band offering high energy and anthem-like, almost noughties indie or BritPop songwriting that runs riot through this new album.
Beginning with the quickly immersive and inescapably catchy Pull The Pin, fast-paced guitars and subtly raspy, accessible vocals lead you through a memorable melody and poetic story-line that almost instantly presents an absolute anthem of a track.
There’s an impressive level of unity between band members here – a quality that speaks volumes on behalf of their time together, their dedication to the cause, and their passion for the process.
