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:
Car Seat Headrest: ‘Nervous Young Inhumans’
The Virginia quartet continue their faultless output with their latest release. A dynamic, skittish indie garage anthem, ‘Nervous Young Inhumans’ recalls old school Americana vocals, addictive textured nuances and above all, it will have your heart pogoing with joy.
The London singer-songwriter emerges with her debut single. With its assured lyrics, velour vocals and shining confidence, this is a strong debut from a new artist who is sincere, sassy and full of promise.
Gaz Coombes: ‘Deep Pockets’
With his recent musical collaboration with the bold Adam Buxton, I was secretly hoping that the Supergrass frontman was about to release material. ‘Deep Pockets’ is a return to form from one of the most talented singer-songwriters of the Britpop era. There is a drama and darkness that swarms round the distinctive vocals of Coombes, not-to-mention a psychedlic undercurrent that makes this all the more absorbing.
Henry Green: ‘Another Light’
Impressive Bristolian electronic artist Henry Green is set to release his highly anticipated album this March. ‘Another Light‘, provides more than enough of a motivation to buy the long player. This is seamless, poetic songwriting and Green is subtle in his delivery, but makes a bold statement with this stunning track.
Wild Child: ‘Sinking Ship’
The songcraft is completely on point here. Vocally, it offers something inimitable and extremely personal. There’s an aeriated and compelling nature to the delivery that makes you immediately connect with this on a spiritual level.
Sylvan Esso: ‘PARAD(w/m)E’
Sylvan Esso continue to produce faultless music with pristine production. Their latest offering is endearing, polished and meticulous in its delivery. This is bursting at the seams with creativity and provides yet another invigorating and wildly enigmatic song from the duo.
Liza Anne: ‘Small Talks’
The unwavering confidence that Liza Anne delivers is one of the most notable things here. Aggressive and nectarous in equal measure, this is admirable songwriting from a strong new indie rock artist on the block.
Prism Tats: ‘Daggers’
South African Garett van der Spek launches a psychedelic post-punk juggernaut with his latest release. Unabashedly defiant, this has a dynamism and retro undercurrent that places this at the sweet spot between progressive and nostalgic. This is an infectious listen.
Great News: ‘Told’
If there is one thing that Norwegian songwriters can do, it’s create triumphant melodies. This is a shining example of the glorious output from Norway over the last few years in particular. A nod to the likes of Fleetwood Mac and a song that will have your heart bursting and your body dancing.
Black Light White Light: ‘Teenage Dream’
This has a wonderful 90s indie feel to it, with an equal measure of driving rhythms and lush melodies, this is a genuinely thrilling track. This is unified, danceable and simply mesmerising.
