Rachel K Collier: ‘Ships’

Welsh producer Rachel K Collier has already featured on the likes of Ray Foxx’s Top 20 hit ‘Boom Boom (Heartbeat)’, not to mention releasing her acclaimed EP Words You Never Heard last year. Her latest release ‘Ships’ is an intelligent electronic anthem.  A beat-heavy musical cannonball, it’s a wall-to-wall party for those serious about dance music.

Bearstronaut: ‘Tuscon’

Having supported the likes of Bat For Lashes and Vampire Weekend to name a couple, Boston quartet Bearstronaut have an already impeccable CV.  Taken from their latest EP, Telecoast, their new track ‘Tuscon’ has a mercantile quality and musically, it’s clearly keen to accommodate its imagined audience. Their personality and songwriting quirks shine through, they’re making…

Thankfully, one of my favourite bands of the last few year, Vasa, have returned like a steamroller with their latest…

Seward: ‘Life (Ali Kuru Rework)’

Barcelona quartet Seward have always been praised for their approach in making their music. An eloquent outfit, they are well known for testing the senses with their theatrical and lofty sounds. Their latest album Second Two: Chapter Home, released back in June via Naim Records continued to back up that sentiment. Today we are happy…

Bear Hands: ‘Boss’

Brooklyn’s Bear Hands have been one of the more traditional bands to emerge of late. Their approach to writing and production has been testament to their talent. Their latest single ‘Boss’ is a masterclass in dynamics. Channeling alternative and classic rock, it further demonstrates their impressive eclecticism. Effortlessly, switching between catchy folk melodies and abrasive guitar riffs,…
