Welcome to February! It might not be a month where we can start seeing live music yet, but hopefully that’s not far away. In the meantime, there’s still plenty of new music to enjoy from the comfort of your home. We’ve discovered four new artists this week that deserve recognition and you can check them out below. As always, click the pics for a listen.
Mia Porter – Pivot
Based on greediness and the search for meaning, Mia Porter’s Pivot is an insightful and playful track that is impossible not to like. Bouncing forward on a steady drumbeat and gritty guitars and synths, the singer brings to life her poetry and personality throughout the clever and versatile lyrical content. The breezy chorus is the icing on the cake of a beautifully crafted track.
Delta Days – Never End
Ontario’s Delta Days unleash their latest offering Never End, a fresh and upbeat indie rock number that builds in a merciless way. With rhythms that explode in fits and starts, the scratchy vocals reverberate amongst themes of isolation and social frustration that reaches a climax in the big and bolshy chorus. Never End is a band having fun and showing what they can do. A catchy track from a band going places.
Love Ghost – Hated
About feeling like an outcast and the toll this can take on your mental health, Hated from Love Ghost manages to manifest that grunge attitude from the early 90s but with up-to-date production and sincerity. The track hits like a freight train as the chorus arrives from nowhere, pulling everything together mercilessly before settling back down into the verses. A constant to and fro that’s impossible not to like.
Sarah Wolff – Bad Thoughts Compilation
Alt-folk with a dark sense of humour, Bergen native but Liverpool living Sarah Wolff describes cautionary tales of days in bed, fraying relationships and botched social interactions throughout track Bad Thoughts Compilation. Taken from debut EP When You Left The Room, the track flows on a lofi sensibility that relies on its folk roots to stitch everything together. A perfectly blended and emotionally prevalent track.
