Cult Icon – Cold Street Shade
A hard-hitting, bluesy rock song, Cold Street Shade swaggers along in a bold and brash atmosphere against fuzzy guitars and deep, scratchy vocals. Its sense of purpose is pushed forward when the big drum track kicks in, making you wish for the days of small, dirty rock venues where this track would sound best. With more than a hint of Black Keys about it, it still manages to stand on its own two feet with a catchy and intriguing nature.
Hypnagogic Garden – Cowboy Blue
With a bluesy, synthy, poppy sound flecked with psychedelia, it might be hard to define Cowboy Blue from Hypnagogic Garden, but one thing’s for sure, it’s catchy as hell. With perfectly distorted vocals providing the overall hook against tight drums and a soulful sound, the track grows into an addictive chorus that will have you bopping your head and tapping your fingers.
Steven Robertson – Whoa
The subtle, indie-folk sounds of Steven Robertson flow with a real resonance and purpose, especially on track, Whoa. With a hint of Willy Mason in the vocals and a serene atmosphere brought to life against insightful lyrics, the track saunters along on a sea of tranquility. The female backing vocals add that extra layer of intrigue that brings it all together.
Peter Horton – Out of My Head
With bright guitar riffs against an indie-pop sound, Peter Horten wakes up the senses with the enigmatic Out of My Head. Exploring the struggle of getting back on track when life gets overwhelming, it’s something many of us can relate to in the current pandemic situation. The track goes bigger and brighter as it progresses, bringing in some subtle wordplay and a penchant for catchy rhythms that hold everything together.
