From grungy rock to happy indie, this week’s tracks will definitely make you feel something! As always, click the pics for a listen.
Said The Whale – Sweetheart
Vancouver’s Said The Whale find a comforting solace in the heavenly yet playful Sweetheart. Based around the exploration of secrets, the track builds addictive layers and rhythms that take the track forward in a unique fashion. The indie-pop sound is further manipulated by more classical sections that tie it all together nicely. A delight to listen to.
Isaac Murdoch & Matt Epp – Everything We Need
As panpipes lead into a settled folk-laden flow, the vocals and harmonies caress your soul like a warm hug. With a twisting and turning story of beauty and upbeat thinking, the melody is welcoming and the atmosphere will slowly bring a smile to your face. It’s just one of those songs that help you forget all the stresses in your life and think of the joys that it can bring.
TheWorst – Jim’s Song
A three-piece rock band from Portland, TheWorst build on toe-tapping post-teen angst on the delightfully grungy and pondering Jim’s Song. Reminding of a mix between Pixies and Nirvana, the track quickly builds to a fuzzy and screamy chorus that is hard to resist. Let go of all emotions and get enveloped in a fun and exhilarating sound that calls on 90s influences but still has an edge of its own.
Youth Sector – Self Exile
Brighton art-rock crew Youth Sector are putting the world to right by exploring the stubborn side of human nature on track Self Exile. With a destructive edge and a fast-paced, indie rock flow, the track mixes the delicate with the frantic before hitting hard in a chorus of malice and beauty. A strong performance that will go down well at indie discos across the land.
