Bealby Point – Telescope
Bealby Point say they’ve spent the best part of two years capturing the most cherished memory of your favourite summer, and they’ve done just that with track, Telescope. With a warm and inviting indie rock sound, it reminds of those hazy, carefree days spent with friends or lovers without a care in the world. A big and bold chorus tops off the fun and frivolous attitude that makes you want to be at a festival watching the band have fun on stage. Roll on live music!
Blase – All of my Worries
From the recently released EP, Blending in a Clash, All of my Worries gives you a taste of Blase’s gently sweeping dreamscapes and lofi pop loveliness. Set against settled guitar work and a steady drumbeat, you can almost feel your troubles ebbing away as the music sweeps over you and calms your mind. A song to just sit back and enjoy in peace and quiet.
Foster Europe Band – Heart On 8
If you’re looking for sultry blues-rock, then Heart On 8 is a track you need to wrap your ears around. Starting slow, steady, and bass-driven, it suddenly kicks in with fuzzy, soulful blues that just glides along in a beautiful way. With similarities to The Black Keys in their prime, it still manages a few flicks of ingenuity that make it stand on its own two legs and build its own momentum. A lovely and inviting listen.
Christopher Paul Stelling – Die To Know
Touted as Southern gothic folk, Christopher Paul Stelling lightens the flow and builds an imagery-laden and flowing acoustic sound on Die To Know. Deft finger-picking and warm atmospheres build against poetic lyrics and a meandering, soulful sound that only gets better the more you listen. It’s the sound of a troubadour spilling his soul and bringing you feelings you didn’t know you had. What’s not to like?
Eagle Johnson & Clean Machine – All My Friends
Mixed by the legendary Lee “Scratch” Perry, All My Friends by Eagle Johnson & Clean Machine has a distinct energy that you can’t help but just be enthralled by. With nods to the indie rock of the past but with more intriguing production techniques, the track takes you on a varied journey of delightful layers and emphatic vocals that never presses too hard. It’s a wonderland of melody and big ideas.
