Psychic Love - “Red Sun”

This is not the first time that we got seduced by Psychic Love’s dream rock melodies. We featured “Ultralight” and “Dye Pack” last year and now is the turn of “Red Sun” off her debut album The Hive Mind.  Psychic Love is a three-piece, self-proclaimed “dream grunge” band led by multi-media artist Laura Peters. Much like...

Lauren Ruth Ward - “Make Love To Myself”

Lauren Ruth Ward is the next femme-fatale of the indie rock music scene, and her latest single, “Make Love To Myself,” is a testament to the ‘don’t-f*ck-with-me’ attitude in the form of a blues-infused gritty rock jam. But beautiful faces aside, it’s her voice that steals the scene, especially at minute 2:13. And after you...

Ten Fé - “Born Slippy .Nuxx (Underworld Cover)”

You might remember Ten Fe from our words on their track “Turn.” This time, their back with a sweet, sweet cover of that song on the Trainspotting soundtrack that we all love. Conceived at a Christmas office party last year, it was recorded that same weekend and released for our holiday season pleasure. They replaced...

Over The Trees - “From the Sidewalk”

“From the Sidewalk” is a moody, melancholic rock jam perfectly suited for those long, pensive days. The beginning is slow and steady, supported by poetic and contemplative lyrics. It eventually rises to an epic, banging peak, only to ground itself in a peaceful ending. What hooked me, however, wasn’t its catharsis-inducing musical pattern — it’s...

Low Hum - “Strange Love”

It’s almost impossible to understand our twisted attraction to dangerous things. Of course, the immediate pleasure of an adrenaline rush is sometimes more than enough to justify it, but these dangerous things often reveal truths about nature and ourselves. Low Hum channels this attraction with “Strange Love”, inspired by the artist’s relationship with the ocean....

Marie Reiter - “Yesterday”

At almost five minutes long, “Yesterday” reveals the emotional states of a love lost. The opening guitar melody and Reiter’s lovely voice introduce a song that is full of ambient layers, dubbed guitar riffs, and echoed vocals — a perfect recipe for expressing nostalgia and heartbreak. The chorus provides for epic peaks and falls, similar...

Tacky Little Hatshop - “Dreamscope”

The name Tacky Little Hatshop is a perfect translation for the sounds heard on their track, “Dreamscope.” Kicking off with whimsical melodic synths, we’re quickly serenaded by lead singer Anneke’s soft, dreamy vocals, followed by a refreshing mixture of romance, psychedelia and playfulness. The track is synth-heavy, but the drums provide for some epic ups-and-downs....

Birthday Ponies - "Sway"

In their own description, the Birthday Ponies try to make music that is both heavy and light, like chocolate mousse. And that they have done with the track “Sway.” Starting off jazzy and indie, the guitars slowly gain power and distortion, and the energy of the track keeps going up. The Birthday Ponies is a 3 piece...

Rootwork  brings us energy and melody in their track “Trust”! The band have embraced many of the elements of modern metal music perfectly taking the listener on a journey through metal, stoner rock, prog, post-hardcore and doom-pop. The end result is some seriously fun music to listen to. The band formed in Farnborough towards the end...
