Introducing…Holy Motors

The Estonian five-piece band makes a virtue out of simplicity: fuzzy guitar workouts and lamenting folky compositions are often suffused in a detached languor that reminisces a ‘90s alternative pop-rock. And, just like their predecessors did (especially bands like Mazzy Star and Galaxie 500), Holy Motors’ textures recall the drug-induced states of vintage psychedelia and Velvet Underground’s droning art-rock.

With their debut album, Slow​ ​Sundown, released in February 2018 on Wharf Cat records, the band stays true to the dream pop genre, while exploring its darker side. With the follow-up to their 2018 debut ‘Slow Sundown’ set to arrive on 16th October, Holy Motors are giving us the latest glimpse at what ‘Horse’ will hold, sharing new song ‘Trouble’.

Introducing…Black Country, New Road

FAV for “post punk”, RT for “art rock”. As Black Country, New Road can’t decide what label best suits their music, asking their ever-increasing legion of fans doesn’t seem like a bad idea. Although, thinking again, the British sextet does well to keep us in a constant state of doubt as to what their next change of direction will be: a torrent of absolutely free sax, meta-pop nods (there are references to Scott Walker and Richard Hell in the lyrics), some words mumbled by a narrator on the verge of madness and seconds of silence that weigh a ton. The only (and exciting) certainty that the band transmits is the same you can find in the blood tests of Squid and Black Midi: right now, the waters of the Thames flow with the same no wave turbulence as the Hudson at the end of the seventies.

Introducing…The Pale White

The Pale White are a three piece indie rock band from Newcastle, UK. Comprised of brothers Adam (Lead Vocals, Guitar) and Jack Hope (Drums), and long time friend Tom Booth(Bass), the trio have fast been gaining attention for their signature melodic guitar work, thunderous rhythm section and magnetic live shows.

Following on from the love and support for their recent cuts ‘Swim For Your Life’ and ‘Polaroid’, Newcastle’s The Pale White return with a brand new single.

The new track ‘Take Your Time’ sees the trio step back from their heavier roots in pursuit of something more melodic and anthemic throughout. Filled with sweeping harmonies and bold hooks, this feels like the dawn of something new from the heavily-hyped outfit.

Pure Norwegian Punky Sweetness. A punk attitude combined with a nerdy knowledge of pop history, makes for an explosive package often compared to Le Tigre, Deerhoof and Duchess Says.
