We have put together a list of songs that have stood out this month for a plethora of reasons. Please take time to invest and immerse in them:
Capture: ‘Truth (feat. Lover)’
A haunting electro-ballad that is sparse in structure, but steeped in an underlying heartache. It’s electronica like this that stands heads and shoulders above the glitchy, commercial efforts of the mainstream. This is incredible.
Law Holt: ‘Love Drive Through‘
Law Holt is one of the most exciting new artists to emerge from Scotland. Someone not to be pigeon-holed, her singular identity infuses itself with a cultural smorgasbord of wealth that musically is in its own playing field. ‘Love Drive Through’ is a fusion of multinational and stylistic identities adding to her only label of “genre-bending”.
Zuzu: ‘Get Off’
There’s no denying that the Liverpool newcomer is influenced by her hometown’s musical legacy. This offers enough twists and turns to make listening to music an active experience again. Simply put, this is confident, rejuvenated indie-punk.
Remember Cathy Dennis? This is like a 2016 reworking and is packed full of nostalgia calling back to a time of fantastic 90s dance and R’n’B. This is infectious, sleek and perfect for the dancefloor.
Beautiful, mysterious and unsettling, this drags you into another world of a stunning new contemporary singer/songwriter.
Honey Lung: ‘Something’
One of the most interesting and exciting bands to come along. It’s been a few years since a band has piqued our interest as much in terms of indie rock. This is sumptuously sprawling in mammoth riffs and sizzling with charm.
