Fresh: The Cradles – ‘Ideal Girl’

Welsh band The Cradles release new single ‘Ideal Girl’ out on March 25th via Solva Records. With its well thought-through arrangements and pointed narratives, ‘Ideal Girl’ is a flawless debut.  This is an inspiring, seductive rock hit and I cannot wait to see what comes next.

AmatrArt have set themselves apart from a lot of artists…

‘Anacrusis’ is the second single from London-based trio Mt. Wolf‘s forthcoming Hex EP.

Wolf explode with chorus and romantic swell. Give this the attention it deserves and it will meditate…

Today’s Song of the Day is courtesy of vibrant Melbourne-based trio Halcyon Drive. ‘Untethered’ is the second single to be released from forthcoming EP Verge due out later this year and is nothing short of thrilling. Laced with a compelling sense of jubilation, this blends indie-rock and pulsating dance beats to create a perfect hybrid. This…
