Check out our favourite new music from the last week:
Famous – Surf’s Up!
Chaotic art-pop from London newcomers Famous. Stabbing synths and haywire feedback grapple against droll vocals, whilst pumping glam drums stomp and rattle. It’s unstructured, surprising and totally wild – barely holding it together at time – but comes out fantastically.
Billie Eilish – Come Out and Play
A gentle, beautiful track from the fast-rising Billie Eilish. Beginning with quietly, with a simply plucked acoustic guitar, the song blossoms as Eilish’s husky voice grows more and more confident, padding percussion and glacial piano adding to the layers. A sweet and delicate song, it is another exciting piece of songwriting from the artist.
Party Hardly – Football
We enjoyed this new single from Leeds’ Party Hardly when it first came out, but now its got this great new video, we are completely in love with it. The four-piece released their new EP ‘Circle of Life’ on Friday and you should probably go listen to it now.
Pizzagirl – Blossom at My Feet, Flower
Twinkling guitars and pining vocals make this brilliant piece of bedroom pop from Pizza girl an intriguing listen. With an echoing 80’s underbelly, ‘Blossom At My Feet, Flower’ is a heartfelt new cut from new EP ‘Season Two’, and big stadium drums with lo-fi charm perfectly.
Marie Davidson and Lamusa II – La Ectase
Pulsating, low-key techno. Marie Davidson and Lamusa II serve up with nocturnal, spacious piece together, with the minimal, muted kickdrums and the swelling vocals wrapping around Marie Davidsons deadpan vocals. Menacing yet hypnotising, ‘La Ectase’ tops-off a fantastic year for Marie Davidson.
Perfume Genius – Not For Me
A softly swelling, sparse yet intensely emotional new song from Perfume Genius. ‘Not For Me’’s earthy guitars and icy synths isolate Perfume Genius’ delicate vocal, whilst growing, the layers blending and building, creating a wonderfully spacious and beautiful piece.
Iceage – Broken Hours
Claustrophobic post-punk from the very best. The brittle guitars and overwhelming bass form the foundations of the track, with the ringing cymbal strikes the only light thing about it. The vocals are as syrupy and slurred as ever, paying no attention to the chaos that surround them.
Hush Mozey – See Them Worrying
Bristol four-piece Hush Mozey are back with their self-described brand of ‘drowzy rock and roll’. The band released their debut EP earlier this year, but have been laying low since then. ‘See Them Worrying’ sees them adding a horn section to their already ska-inspired sound, making them sound bigger than ever.
