Premiere: Sewage Farm Share “Ariel” Video

New UK trio Sewage Farm play heavily on contrast in their brand new track Ariel, a breezy two-minute gem with a darker undertow of garage scuzz. There’s something of The Magic Gang’s ‘Jasmine’ in its loved up singalong chorus, guitarist/vocalist Sam Forrest proclaiming, “Ariel, Ariel call my name, Can you tell Ariel we’re just the same?” in a message as old as time- fancying a girl. Shot in Germany, the video sees Ariel’s driving indie pop superimposed over black and white footage of bleak high rise flats, the band eating ice cream and picking flowers in the shadow of an imposing tower block.

Communions – “Don’t Hold Anything Back”

A gloriously summery piece indie-pop track, Don’t Hold Anything Back is a bit of a kaleidoscopic record. Just when you think you’ve sussed where the track is heading it surprises you. It’s an instant indie-hit, just made for the radio or teens to dance to in the mud at a festival. Continue reading “Communions – “Don’t Hold Anything Back””

Alcohol, Lust and Shitty Nightclubs: Hunck – “All Dressed Up”

All Dressed Up is the new single from Hunck, a ‘sob-rock’ quintet of Frank Sinatra fans from Tottenham and a Google search one letter away from a gallery of greasy muscled men.  It opens with a surge of electric melody which seamlessly morphs into meowing guitar. The song tells a tale of the frustration of being stood up by a girl, a whirlwind romance, two thirds alcohol, one third lust, shattered in the light of a shitty nightclub disco-ball. Continue reading “Alcohol, Lust and Shitty Nightclubs: Hunck – “All Dressed Up””

Get Dancing to Moses Gunn Collective’s Glammed-Up New Track

If possible, Australian neo-psych quintet Moses Gunn Collective have glammed things up even more with their latest release Dream Girls, a no strings attached disco fling. The initial pretty-but-dull synthy swirl and monotone thud of the verse is transformed by the chorus; the shrill back and forth uniting danceable psych and Noughties club pop vibes, the refrain of “Stay in bed all day, Waiting for the night” glitching over and over like a pilled up Europop banger. A spooky breakdown followed by a blast of more conventional psych rock pushes Dream Girls to its dazed, glittery conclusion.

Chest Pains – “Blood Pumping”

Despite the relative difficulty in finding Chest Pains’ new track Blood Pumping amidst heart attack advice on Google, it is definitely worth the resolution – Blood Pumping is a stark, heavy, screeching track that although lasts just over 2 minutes, hits you as hard as a heart attack could. A follow-up to last November’s EP Beach Beauties, this track is one that cements Chest Pains’ recognisably scratchy garage sound complemented by their raucous live show, and introduces their upcoming EP Bath Bandits. Continue reading “Chest Pains – “Blood Pumping””

The Big Moon – “Silent Movie Susie”

Jolting up a voltaic fizz at their recent live shows; garage quartet The Big Moon have finally released their new single Silent Movie Susie in all of its boisterous glory. Oscillating in pop punk murmurs, Silent Movie Susie is The Big Moon’s most intricately sophisticated work to date. It’s catchy, frothing with zeal and mirrors the 90’s estrogen powerhouse that is Elastica. The single is due for vinyl release on the 25th September, but it is available for general download right now. Continue reading “The Big Moon – “Silent Movie Susie””

TRASH Share “Give Up” Single

Lo-fi pop rockers TRASH are back with their third release to date – Give Up. Give Up is a voyeuristic narration of teenage lust, blistering in dream pop. The track follows a guy navigating his conflicted mind between adolescent boredom and toilsome girls; “She’s getting sick and tired of you, if you don’t give a fuck someone else will.’” – Before being anaphorically and coldly told to give up.
