1. Spiritualized– ‘I’m Your Man

English space rockers Spiritualized are releasing their first LP this fall since 2012, entitled ‘And Nothing Hurt‘. Our first teaser, ‘I’m Your Man‘ is just over four minutes of sweeping spacial sonics as per usual. Slightly lovelorn vocals accompany tender and affectionate lyrics such as “I could be faithful, honest and true / holding my heart for you / faithful all down the line / devoted all the time.” An ode sweet and gratifying.

  1. Smokescreens – ‘Someone New

Someone New‘ is the new track  of the L.A. based Smokescreens from their upcoming album ‘Used To Yesterday‘. The album will be officially released on 13th of July via Slumberland Records. The quartet formed  in 2010, initially as a duo, and has released one more album in 2017.

Someone New‘ is the second track revealed after the ‘Used To Yesterday’.  Their music can be placed between indie pop and noise rock music. This new track with the catchy vocals and the ‘dance-y’ rhythm, came as a real surprise fixing our mood.
