It’s just a few steps ahead of me… So I’ll once more leave you in their capable hands, simply click on the images below to check out their top five picks for this week;
Marsicans – Gone In A Second
Marsicans are releasing their brand new single ‘Gone In A Second’ on Record Store Day (April 18th), and the single seems to be attracting some pretty impressive industry interest, quite rightly. The track premiered on US blog Consequence Of Sound, and the video launched on Entertainment Weekly. The Leeds based band create an upbeat indie-pop, fresh yet familiar and will definitely get you humming along after a listen.
Moxie Kicks – Soul For You
Having only been formed in 2014, Moxie Kicks are gaining momentum. The duo are comprised of Charlie Freeman and Jamie Brown, and met via a music advert online. Sharing a passion for indie, guitar led anthemic tunes, the lads are creating songs dipped in emotion and rich in melody.
Dances – Rat
Rock band Dances were formed in New York in 2011 by singer/guitarist Trevor Vaz. Originally a solo songwriting project, it grew into a collaborative trio in 2013 with the addition of bassist/singer Sam Stoeltje and drummer David Su.
The band draw influence from 60s psych and 90s alternative, creating some smart and familiar sounding guitar rock anthems.Their 2014 debut EP Whiter Sands is WELL worth a listen.
Sailor & I – Turn Around
Alexander Sjodin is a Swedish singer, multi-instrumentalist and producer, the braind behind Sailor & I. His debut single was released on electronic label Black Butter, gaining momentum and receiving extensive airplay on all BBC stations in the UK, and some impressive support throughout Europe. ‘Turn Around’ was the second helping from Sjodin, and it didn’t disappoint.
Chili and The Whalekillers – Smile
Icelandic-Austrian five piece indie/pop band Chili and The Whalekillers are anything but ordinary, producing music which is influenced by anything from pop, to 60s psych, to folk, to surf rock. They create a kind of pop which appeals to the masses, with a danceability that sent shockwaves running through the press when the band released their third album ‘Turn’ in 2013, with their lead single reaching No.3 in the Icelandic radio charts.
