The middle of April brings us four new tracks from New Music Fridays to wrap your well-deserved ears around. A bit of garage rock, a bit of lofi pop, and a bit of indie-folk, it’s a really great week to discover some new artists. As always click the pics for a listen.
Crocodyle – Rats of the Night
From EP Sharing a Twin Bed, Rats of the Night is apparently about feeling like a nervous alien, but then realising you have special alien qualities… I don’t know what they were on when they wrote this track but it must have been good. Full of big garage rock guitars and an energetic, full-throttle chorus, the track powers forward amongst addictive vocals and strong, playful tones. A surefire track to look forward to live when the time comes.
Tyler Meacham – Unknowing
An acoustic, harmony-rich ballad, Tyler Meachams’s Unknowing features beautiful flows and lyrics about how uncertainty has touched us all over the last year. With warm undertones and a hint of nostalgic indie-folk, the track has an emotional, beautiful energy that grows as it unfurls and lays everything bare. A strong performance with a great vocal talent at the centre of it.
D’Indigo – Through Your Lens
Touted as existing somewhere between dreaming, coffee, and orgasms, Through Your Lens slowly unwraps over a settled lofi atmosphere, dreamy vocals and a pulsating drum track. Celebrating the right to stay in bed with your love a little longer, it’s a song for those lazy Sunday mornings you just want to spend in the duvet. A Lovely track.
Stray Fossa – Hypocritic
Lead-off track from full-length debut, With you For Ever, Hypocritic bounces along in a sea of 90s nostalgia but wrapped in more modern production. It’s got a hint of Stone Roses but with an added layer of pop and psychedelia, that really help to bring it out of its shell and show off its glimmering inventiveness in all its glory. The beauty is that you don’t know where it will go next which keeps you on your toes.
