Yonaka – “Bubblegum”

By Will Oliver, December 28th 2017

Back in October, we shared with you the firey track “Wouldn’t Wanna Be Ya” from up-and-coming British rockers Yonaka.

Today we are here to share another winning track from the band’s debut EP Heavy. It’s the EP’s opening song, “Bubblegum,” a confident rocker that almost sounds like if Sanigold was fronting a buzzy rock band. It’s got a big-time energy to it that just feels natural and full of life, something that it seems just comes naturally to this young Brighton band.

Take a listen to “Bubblegum” below, where you can also find it’s lively music video. The whole EP is available to buy now from iTunes.

Tapetown is a recording studio out of Scandinavia that has been producing some great live sessions, most recently a wonderful live performance from Danish up and coming rockers Blood Child, which we recently posted about here.

POP ETC – “Fingerprints”

By Will Oliver, December 28th 2017

POP ETC returned this year with their Infinity Singles Collection, releasing a new single every couple of weeks. One of the first releases in this series is a track called “Fingerprints,” which has a laid-back and sunny, mostly acoustic heart to it.

Fans of POP ETC who fell in love with their early work as The Morning Benders may find something for them here, if the bands more electronic/pop offerings weren’t quite for you. This is a bit of an old school sound for these guys and it’s really working for me.

Enjoy the video for “Fingerprints” below.

Kate Tempest – “Tunnel Vision” (Music Video)

By Will Oliver, December 28th 2017

British poet/rapper/author Kate Tempest moves to the beat of her own drum, doing something that can be considered hip-hop or spoken word but her voice cuts deeper than that. Her 2016 album Let Them Eat Chaos was another thoughtful release from the artist who continues to prove herself to be one of the smartest voices in the game at the moment. She blew me away when she came through to Le Poisson Rouge back in April.

It’s hard not to be moved by her music video for “Tunnel Vision.” with some political statements that are all too relevant in this climate. It’s good to know that we have voices like Tempest to help guide us through these troubling times.

Find the video for “Tunnel Vision” posted below.

Blood Child – “Psycho”

By Will Oliver, December 10th 2017 — with 1 comment

Hailing from the underground punk scene in Denmark are young rockers Blood Child. They came to my attention after being sent a live video of them performing a live session of their track “Psycho.” It definitely calls to mine of groups such as Ice Age, with a post-punk sound that features some great riffs and vocals that work together to create one hell of a glorious amount of noise. The fact that this track is live makes it all even more impressive.

Hope to get a proper recorded version of this but god damn, this version will do for now. Enjoy the video of the performance at Tapetown Studios posted below.

Everything Everything – “Desire”

By Will Oliver, December 8th 2017

This year saw British rockers Everything Everything return with their fourth album A Fever Dream, released this August via RCA Records.

The band have a signature blend of indie rock that is very much their own and this stays very much true on the records third single “Desire.” If nothing else, it doesn’t take long for the track to stand out with those signature vocals that are as unique as they are unmistakably catchy.

You can take a listen to “Desire” below in the form of its official music video.
