1. VEDA – ‘WERK’ 

Expect anything by Birmingham based multi-instrumentalist Dominic Antonio Sepúlveda. aka VEDA. His latest song is called ‘WERK‘, an uncommon goth, lo-fi pop ‘pearl’ which is catchy as hell, and just imagine how would The Cure sound like if they consumed more pop than wave steroids. Like that? We defo do!

Check out the kinky visuals below from the track’s video directed by Joseph Daly. and sing along:

Dawn in the city
Work or die
Mindless zombies their eyes
Take your hours
Sign the sheets
Gotta burn before you keep

  1. Holden Laurence – ‘Like James Dean’

Holden Laurence‘s ‘Like James Dean‘ is one of the finest examples of how a modern indie track should sound like: Memorable melodies, quotabe lyrics like those of the main ear-melting chorus: ‘When you are 17, yound & wild like James Dean‘, killer guitar hooks, a passionate, well-balanced vocal performance and an addictive ala Peter Hook bassline. ‘Like James Dean‘ is a sincere indie pop track. An instant classic for pure music fans. Thank you Holden!

  1. Simon D James – ‘Fooled By You’

Now what’s this? Floating in heaven with this atmospheric tune by Simon D James. ‘Fooled By You‘ has this unique, lush ambient ‘veil’ combined with James’ mystagogic vocal performance to lift off the experience to transcendent, unimaginable levels, or more precisely depths… Hope you are ready for the ‘dive’…
