Welcome to this week’s NMF, folks! We’ve got an awesome mix of tracks below that we’ve discovered over the last 7 days. From bass-driven rock to off-beat romance to born-again indie-pop, delve in that let your ears enjoy all these tracks have to offer. As always, click the pics for a listen.
The Dead Licks – Right After All
With a gentle flow and a laid-back intro, Right After All gradually comes out of its shell to gorgeous vocals, sultry rhythms and a playful bassline. Big guitars are then added to even bigger energy that pulsates, sizzles and rocks. A perfectly driven track that shows off the band’s dexterity and inventiveness that grows bolder with every listen.
Jane’s Party – Live Again
Evolving into a track about picking up the pieces of our pre-pandemic life, Live Again by Jane’s Party is a beautifully cathartic recording that builds against vibrant vocals, big drums and an energetic chorus. It’s one of those tracks that gets stuck in your head and refuses to let go. Feeling emotional in the way it bounces around amongst visionary lyrics and a pop mentality, it’s a fun and exhilarating sound.
Equipe de Foot – Quatre-Vingt-Quartorze
With a woozy, hypnotic flow, the French rock duo build an enticing soundscape against fuzzy loops and crunchy guitar sounds transposed against a subtle lightness and positivity. It’s a tough duality to get right but the band balances both sides of the coin perfectly, allowing the track to grow in stature when necessary but hold back when needed. A perfect mix of sincerity and passion.
KellyMarie – Us Again
From an off-beat concept album based on love stories from the American version of ‘The Office’, Us Again is a wonderfully vibrant take on the romance of characters Jim and Karen. Not needing to know the source material and able to be enjoyed as just a vibrant pop-rock tune, the track dances to its own beat, ebbing and flowing in perfect unison to the distinct vocals. A fun and vibrant listen.
