Allen Stone- The Weekend
Self proclaimed ‘hippie with soul’ Allen Stone is back with the first song ‘The Weekend’ from his upcoming third album ‘Radius.’ It’s an infectious pop song which harkens back to the days of Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye. The keyboard hook accompanied by Stone’s crooning will ensure that you dance the whole weekend away.
Tennis System- Here We Go
L.A. Trio, Tennis System have just release ‘Here We Go’ on Paper Cup Music. Their wavy sounds see a blend of dreamy guitars, a punchy bass line, killer beats and hazed melody, imagine The Cure on a California beach without the sunburn and you’re half way there. The bands dream pop vibes come from shoe gaze roots and ‘Here We Go’ is packed with sunshine vibes feels, giving you something to hold on to until the summer gets here.
Parakeet – Sugar Rush
Fuzz pop side project of Yuck bassist Mariko Doi, Parakeet, are back. Riff upon riff the thrashing ‘Sugar Rush’ is a barrage of noise draped in glittering melody, Fuzzed guitars and Mariko’s killer vocals all backed up by massive drums.
Josefin Ohrn + The Liberation- Sunny Afternoon
Swedish band Josefin Ohrn + The Liberation released their debut album ‘Horse Dance’ in November and their latest single ‘Sunny Afternoon’ has just dropped. It’s striking, tribal drums and a repetitive bass line grab your attention right from the start. They have a sound that’s very reminiscent of Hawkwind, it’s psychedelia with an almighty sound.
Chipmunk – Bluku Bye Bye Bye
Chip, having recently dropped the munk from his name as a sign of reinvention, has released a video for song ‘Bluku Bye Bye Bye’ from his ‘Rap vs Grime’ mixtape. This isn’t a wishy washy heartfelt song with a melodic chorus that most UK rappers use as a way to cross over in to the mainstream. This is a big grime tune with a heavy beat and Chip proving that he’s still up there with the best in the game.
