Happy Friday to one and all! We’d love to once again make the most of the day by introducing to you some awesome tracks we’ve discovered at Vinyl Chapters HQ this week. As always, click the pics for a listen!
Elison – Covered Me
About coming to the realization that the person you’re in a relationship with is a narcissist, Covered Me by Elison is a mysterious, fuzzy guitar-driven track with elements of pop that sputter out intermittently. The sultry vocals provide a basis for the track to be developed around and its uncomplicated nature allows the music to swell flow. Its tension-building layers directly encapsulate the downbeat atmosphere creating a wonderful listening experience.
Secondhand Sound – Colm’s Quest
The first single off their new project, Colm’s Quest by Secondhand Sound is equal parts bolshy, beautiful and moving. With a scratchy, indie flow, the track thrills as it dives into a pulsating riff-laden chorus that explodes away from the verses. The vocals allow the track to go where it pleases, able to hold their own before being taken over by a distinct indie rock energy. Mesmerising.
Francesca Louise – Odyssey
With Carole King-inspired vocals and a touch of the melancholy, Odyssey by Francesca Louise shows the indie-folk singer-songwriter at her best. Written during the pandemic and inspired by a traumatic event, the track is beautifully structured, building on layers of beauty as Francesca gets into her groove. Pensive and mellow, it’s a beautiful song that is impossible to resist. You’ll be back for another listen in no time.
more* – I believe in You
Kane Ritchotte and Malcolm McRae form the backbone of more* and their new track I Beleive in You reveals a very different side to the band. With angelic vocals and a distinct indie-pop flow, the track pushes forward amongst a controlling bassline that is bright and suggestive, allowing the rest of the track to be built warmly around it. A delightful summer-tinged sound that will leave you with a smile on your face.
