f y f e has followed up his breakthrough single Solace with another simply irresistible dose of intelligent pop with substance. On his latest number, St Tropez, London-based f y f eimpresses me yet again with his use of minimal yet effective instrumentation, gorgeous lyrics and another beautiful vocal performance. One to watch.
Having already shared the fantastic singles Mute and Dropla, Trevor Powers of Youth Lagoon has made his highly anticipated new album Wondrous Bughouse available to stream over at NPR. It sounds brilliant!
Silver Lake, Los Angeles-based indie/shoegaze outfit Local Channel have just shared their excellent debut single Arctic, and made it available for free download. It’s a very promising start from the band that has me pretty stoked to hear more.
They plan on dropping an EP in March which I’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for.
Born Ruffians drop their new album Birthmarks on April 16. Having already shared the excellent With Her Shadow back in January, they’re back with Needle the albums opener and another quality offering from the Toronto indie rockers.
Last year Sarah P collaborated with The New Division on their stunning single Night Escape and her vocals on that track literally blew me away. This morning I discovered the news that her band, Keep Shelly In Athens, will finally release their debut LP this July through Cascine Records. Their latest single Madmen Love sees the band displaying their darker side. Starting off rather ominously with some distorted instrumentals before Sarah P’s familiar vocals take command, it’s another stellar release by a really consistent band.
The Athens-based duo have already released two excellent EP’s that are worth checking out if you haven’t already.
Fresh from releasing their fantastic lead single Pretty Boy from their forthcoming LP Ultramarine, Young Galaxy are back with another delightful new track called Fall For You. It’s another stunning release filled with gorgeous instrumentals and some typically beautiful vocals from Catherine McCandless.
