We have put together a list of songs that have stood out this month for a plethora of reasons. Please take the time to invest and immerse yourself in them:
With a past involving The Vaccines, Pete Robertson has formed solo project Sunan. ‘Faster’ is the impressive debut single and something which cements himself as a credible solo artist in his own right. A vivacious, colourful and melodically rich first taster, this is an upbeat, notable electro-pop gem.
Henry Green: ‘Shift’
Henry Green’s faultless output continues, with his album of the same name due out for release next month, ‘Shift’ is a lucid, graceful body of melodic whisperings. His voice alone carries his music effortlessly and this is another indication that his forthcoming album is going to be something unquestionably mesmerising.
Your Favourite Color: ‘Heartache’
The Californian quartet have emerged with one of the most spirited indie tracks to kick 2018 off. This is a melodic juggernaut and doesn’t dip below thrilling. They have transcended their influences and packed them into just under 4 minutes of fractured guitars and omnipotent vocals. This is wonderful.
Halcyon Drive: ‘Silver Ray’
The Melbourne trio help illustrate what an amazing pool of talent continues to emerge from down under. With an album on the way, this conquers with unassuming light-hearted romance. They boast an impressive sound. Solid melodies and a sure fire way to make you feel unadulterated joy through their music.
Francobollo: ‘Hoo Ha’
Undoubtedly, one of the more exciting bands to emerge of late, the London-based Swedes thrust you on an airborne sonic journey. This is fascinating, idiosyncratic and completely addictive. If I don’t see them on numerous festival bills this year, I will be staggered.
