NEW MUSIC FRIDAY!
Here is your next dose of standout tunes I have received recently and added to my playlists.
Coral Palms - Something In The Air
London based Indie Pop four piece, Coral Palms are back with another catchy Indie Pop anthem. The track is full of intricate guitar melodies and drum rhythms that give this track a really unique jangly, almost tropical feel. You can clearly hear influences of Two Door Cinema Club and Foals, whilst still remaining entirely unique. On top of that you've got some infectious vocal hooks that have you wanted to get this song on repeat, singing at the top of your lungs.
Benjamino - Play Her
The latest single from Benjamino is a really quirky sounding track, complete with jazz piano chords and lush horns throughout, giving this single a grandiose feel. You even get a trumpet solo in there at one point, which really feels like something you should hear more often! All of these different sounds and textures are compiled together beautifully into an Indie Pop format. The vocals are sang perfectly to fit the vibe of the song and provides hooks galore.
Leopard Rays - Curtain Calls
Hartlepool Alt-rockers Leopard Rays are back with an anthemic new single, 'Curtain Calls'. The song kicks off as it means to go on with some thunderous, high energy drums, and distorted guitar licks. In the chorus though the track really takes off with some huge, stadium sounding lead vocals, providing a singalong chorus of biblical proportions. There is an equally massive instrumental section before building for one big last singalong chorus that rounds the single off perfectly. Get this one played at max volume!
Pizza Crunch - Motivational Substances
'Motivational Substances' hooks you in right away with a standout, sweeping, bending guitar riff - leading you straight into the first verse. The verse builds on that riff and are steady, before the pre-chorus picks up significantly leading you to the uptempo chorus. One thing about this song is there are rhythmic changes all over, which really keep your attention as a listener and holds you there, keeping you guessing. There is an 80s Post-Punk strut about their sound, that makes for such a compelling listen from start to finish. Another great band to come out of Scotland!
PAGES. - Black and Blue
Three piece alternative pop band PAGES are back with their gritty new song 'Black and Blue'. The Scottish outfit manage to combine lush synth sounds with heavy guitar riffs to create an inimitable sound. This song meanders through different genres seamlessly. The track even breaks down to an almost 'trap' like verse mid-song which just goes to show the genre diversity that can be found here. All of which keeps you on the edge of your seat for the whole listen as lead singer bellows 'Sorry's not good for you'. It sounds like a call to arms of sorts to a fractious relationship, that is perfectly encapsulated by the frantic nature of the instrumentation at play here!
Lou Ella - Snake In The Garden
Lou Ella is back with a brand new track, and it is a stunner of a pop single. The vocals here throughout are sensational and excellently produced. You almost get a Stevie Nicks/ Fleetwood Mac vibe in the chorus, the way the vocals are layered on top of light and airy instrumentation. However they have managed to create an incredibly contemporary sound here, with the use of crips drums samples and luscious synth sounds. The result is quite brilliant pop song, with expert storytelling throughout and brilliant hooks.
