The Weekly Broadcast
As we say goodbye to October, here’s our spook filled selection of this week’s new releases, jam packed with mighty offerings from local heroes PLUS a re-visit of this year’s SAY Award winner!
The Vegan Leather – Gloaming
A year on since the release of their debut album and a sprinkling of singles later the Paisley quartet return with the seasonally relevant Gloaming marrying eerie synth tones with Marie Collins’ soaringly haunting vocal, cementing once again art-pop anthem status with a track destined to be enjoyed live!
Greentea Peng – Revolution
Describing this track as, “a product of 2020 chaos” this track offers a narrative on the societal tribulations this year has presented, backed by the effortlessly cool neo-soul stylings we’ve grown to love from the London singer/songwriter!
Slow Weather – Clean Living
The duo made up of Annie Booth and Chris McCrory (Catholic Action) have released their new single Clean Living which is a delightful slow burner. The harmonies of the two voices entwined to create a lovely atmospheric song that eclipses with a rising and haunting outro.
Gallus – Marmalade
The Glasgow indie-punk act are back with Marmalade, an alarmingly punchy song with substantial guitar hooks and an unsurprisingly catchy chorus from the band at the forefront of the Glasgow music scene.
Quiche – Hor Cha
Retaining their signature 60’s melodic charm whilst amping up the heat to 100° teaming the controlled chaos of blistering guitar alongside euphoric harmonies to create a perfect ode to the complications of adolescence.
Nova – Bread and Butter
Following her win at last night’s SAY Award, there’s no better time to re-visit the fierce sounds of Nova than right now!
Ariana Grande – just like magic
What can be said about Ariana Grande that hasn’t already. Ms. Grande is back with her sixth album and it seems as though she has released yet another bop-filled one. Just like magic is one of the slightly more laidback songs on the album, whilst still having the ability to get your toe-tapping.
Black Honey – I Like The Way You Die
This vampy return from the Brighton four-piece offers a shamelessly glam and instrumentally unrelenting glimpse into what album two (due for release in January 2021) has to offer!
Coach Party – Really OK on My Own
Really OK on My Own is the follow up single to Can’t Talk, Won’t from Coach Party which teases a somewhat slow start until the first chorus rings in and the song picks up the pace. The honesty in the lyrics really comes across in this song as the band explores the different roles in a relationship.
KAWALA – Pure Desire
Pure Desire – is just what you would expect to hear from Kawala with another chilled indie-pop tune that manages to have just the right mix of energy and calm vocals oozing throughout emanating in another catchy chorus that will get stuck in your head for days.
Bright Eyes, Phoebe Bridgers – Miracle of Life
A welcomed return from members of one of 2019’s greatest exports, seeing the collaboration once again of “Better Oblivion Community Centre’s” Conor Oberst and Phoebe Bridgers, proving to be a match made in musical heaven. The perfect accompaniment to ease into the weekend with!
