We’ve got some corkers on you this week in New Music Fridays. From bluesy rock to chilled-out psychedelia to fuzzy guitar riffs, each track strikes right into your soul. As always, click the pics for a listen.
GOON – Fruiting Body
Inspired by a long walk on a rainy day along the LA river, Fruiting Body caresses the soul like a gentle summer stroll. As blooming harmonies gradually unfold against calming, serene vocals, the track is the perfect escape from everyday life into a dreamy swelling sound of harmony.
Widowspeak – The Jacket
The title track off their forthcoming sixth studio album, The Jacket by Widowspeak is a raw, hypnotizing sound that’s impossible to resist. With fuzzy yet settled guitars perfectly balanced against the sweet and innocent vocals, the stripped-back sound somehow feels powerful and enigmatic against the guitar playing. A true song of opposites attract.
Electric Candlelight – Don’t Turn
Blues, blood, sweat and tears is the only way to describe Electric Candlelight’s Don’t Turn. Powerful, addictive lyrical flows are draped over playful guitars that melt in rock n roll glory and build a seductively sleek yet raw sound that is fun, perfectly executed and will have you coming back for more. Awesome.
Thaïti – Disco Kahuna
The Disco Kahuna, a character based on a local dance legend in Nijmegen (Netherlands) plays the lead in this gently pulsating track with psychedelic flavours, floaty vocals and funky electro energy. It’s a track that suddenly comes alive and will leave you looking for the nearest dancefloor, wherever you are. Surf, spaghetti western, grooviness and an 80s sheen, it’s all here to enjoy.
