Yep, that’s right…another Friday 13th edition of New Music Fridays! We’re not superstitious here so let’s get on with introducing you to some awesome new music. This week we’re heavy on the soul with a dash of surf rock and a helping of new-age ‘Madchester’ brit-pop. Delve in and have a listen by clicking on the pics!
Jonathan Jeremiah – Horsepower For The Streets
London-based singer-songwriter Jonathan Jeremiah unleashes soulful vocals, groovy rhythms and seductive strings on new track Horsepower for the Streets. Reminiscent of work from Michael Kiwanuka, the female backing vocals help the track shine through in the darker sections as the bass line tantalisingly pushes the it forward. A delight to listen to.
Caleb Kunle – All In Your Head
Nigerian-Irish soul-psyche artist Caleb Kunle unleashes folk-inflected soul power in the addictively flagrant All in your Head. Coming from a deep love of folk, soul, hip-hop and story telling, the track wanders around on themes of harmony and equilibrium, able to comfort in areas and make you think in others. A song to sit back and just enjoy when you can’t turn your brain off.
Leon in the Wild – Powerlines
With a light, indie surf-pop vibe, there are hints of Beach Boys, flecks off The Beatles and an underlayer of 90s rock that makes for an enticing journey in the track Powerlines. Based out of Northern California, Leon shows off his dexterity in creating a wonderfully crafted flow that is impossible to resist. Roll on those summer days without a care in the world.
Pastel – Isaiah
Rising Manchester indie stars Pastel show off their 90s brit-pop swagger in the face of a new age of fans. With subtle flows that allow the guitar work to grow into the chorus, the smooth yet powerful vocals are allowed to breathe in the space provided and consume your soul completely. Watch out for these guys, they’re even supporting the legend that is Liam Gallagher on an upcoming tour so they must be onto something good.
