Welcome to the weekend! To celebrate we have four more up and coming bands that deserve your ear’s attention. From folky pop to electro-indie, each one offers up something different for you to enjoy and discover. As always, click the pics to take a listen.
J.B. Boone – Wildfeather
With this track about quarantine and introspection, it hits on topics that half the world will be able to relate to at this very moment. Set against expert acoustic guitar playing, Boone’s lyrics warn us not to think too much, but rely on love and those around you for support. His vocal tones really raise the track up and the clever entrance of a full band and thumping drums before cutting out again works really well. A fine track.
Mira Belle – Being Alone
Mixing electro-pop with hip-hop beats, new track Being Alone from Mira Belle comes from a dark place but is brightened by its subtle atmosphere and a strong chorus. It ebbs and flows nicely, hypnotizing the listener with a great flow to the vocals and the perfect amount of layers to not make it overcrowded. It’s a track you need to just sit down and concentrate on to really appreciate.
TONGUES – Spoken For
The last single from TONGUES third EP, Find, Spoken For takes you on a grief-ridden journey with a light at the end of the tunnel. With a gentle and emotional build-up, about midway through the song flips on its head and a steady drumbeat and a more settled nature take over. It’s a clever twist and almost like two songs for the price of one, suiting the content of the track perfectly.
Goons – Homerun
Homerun is the debut release from Sydney-based rock outfit Goons. Drawing influence from a range of noughties indie rock stalwarts, the track drifts gently into an energetic chorus where the band can truly show what they’re all about – big rhythms, big sounds and big beats. The more settled verses help round off the track and also allow the vocals to shine through amongst the strong guitar work. One to see live, when you can, for sure.
