- Beverly Kills – ‘Revellers’
A great name with a super sound. They are called Beverly Kills, they come from Gothenburg and they play an ideal amalgam of indie pop with post-punk. Their latest single ‘Revellers‘ is one of the best ambassadors of what Sweden is capable of offering. Cathcy as hell, harmonic vocals, and a seductive rhythm may drive to you the (indie) moon and back in just 157 econds.
Cannot wait for their debut ‘In This Dim Light/Melodrama‘ via awesome Aussie label Hell Beach.
- Brass Box – ‘DDM‘
Los Angeles’ Brass Box shared the new, 2nd single ‘DDM‘ from the forthcoming debut album ‘The Cathedral‘. The new album is expected to be out in April via Dune Altar. Meanwhile the band is preparing for their West coast tour.
Dark melodies unleash a spiral of feelings, thoughts and desires that are mixed with noisy shoegaze of swirling guitars. The result can be described as a dreamy wave of an atmospheric sea, where anyone can easily get lost.
Ammo Bankoff commented on the song “Writing for me is a catharsis of suppressed thoughts, emotions and energy that can be tangibly challenging to actualize where communication isn’t always direct or obvious.”
- undertheskin – ‘\\\\\\ NOTHERE)’
undertheskin is the solo project (only in live performances a trio) of vocalist, multi instrumentalist Mariusz Luniewski from Krakow, Poland. ‘\\\\\\ NOTHERE)‘ is taken from the recently released second album ‘N E G A T I V E‘. undertheskin’s music is full of sounds that emerge from the 80’s such as goth rock guitars, drum machines and minimal synths. But with a modern aproach just for the perfect coldwave sonic result.
- Misery Index – ‘Naysayer‘
Misery Index have already claimed a place in the best albums of the year having released new tracks some months ago. Their new album ‘Rituals of Power‘ is out since March 8th via Season Of Mist and is already making its impact.
- Josephine Wiggs – ‘Time Does Not Bring Relief’
Alt-rock icon and bassist of The Breeders, Josephine Wiggs, recently revealed the latest song and video (by herself!) ‘Time Does Not Bring Relief’ from the album ‘We Fall‘, out May 17th on The Sound of Sinners. The track is a 5-minute dive into the contemporary music, an Eno-esque minimal ala Harold Budd bijou that will play on repeat those restless evenings. It’s delicate, fragile but on the same time dynamic. Wiggs is power and we believe on this stunning piece of sonic beauty….
