Who: The New America
The New America is a Bristol based noise rock band founded in October 2018; The soundtrack to the Colony Collapse Disorder the world is experiencing.
The track: Hong Kong Free Press
In a few words: A post punk/noise rock anthem by up-and-coming Bristolians, The New America, ‘written in the summer of 2019, everyone was watching the one million people demonstrating on behalf of democracy’. Vocals with attitude, edgy a la Gang of Four guitars, an addictive chorus and thunderous pace. Need anything else?
Kaleidoscopic indie rock duo from SF and ATL. Inspired by a x-section of influences from Bowie to Yorke.
The track: Get Up (Just Don’t Lie to Me)
In a few words: The second single release and features guest vocalist Whitney Miley Price, from Tralala, ‘Get Up (Just Don’t Lie to Me)’, is a finely textured indietronica jam, ideal for the upcoming summer. Ethereal and trippy, you will instantly get clicked with this one for weeks!
Who: Modern Nomad
Modern Nomad is the recording project of Maryland native, multi-instrumentalist and songwriter, Tom McLean.
The track: Can’t Explain It
In a few words: The lead single of Modern Nomad’s upcoming EP, ‘Bardo’ (out on May 14th) is a hazy indie, psychedelic pop drift with sexy vocals, and summer-y mood to get lost in. Well balanced, stylish and melody engaging!
Who: Das Druid
Australian band Das Druid picks apart and collects sounds from the Madchester scene and combines them with psyche rock, breaks and acid
The track: Without It
In a few words: The 3rd offering from Das Druid and the 1st single off their forthcoming album is a euphoric broken beat, indie psychedelic love note that will keep you moving, and for all those 90s kids will fill your heart with sweet nostalgia of that long gone, Golden era. Pure awesomeness!
Who: Occult X
A dream pop/post punk outfit from Nashville
The track: Bed
In a few words: ‘Bed’ is another banger by Occult X, ideally balanced between dream pop and post punk, about the artist’s dislike of hookups. It’s catchy and nervy as well. Hold your breath!
