A brand new SEVEN IN THE MIX for a brand new week!
Seven compelling tracks I played on repeat these past days
Seven arresting strokes to feed body & soul all week long
Turn up the volume! Music is the dope! Here’s the stuff!
1/ ‘Hanging Out’ by DOLLY SPARTANS (New York, NY, US)
This resistless jingle jangle whirlwind will grab your attention instantly. An energetic and mighty brisk cut from new EP ‘Time Sides With No One‘. Out 31 March on Bandcamp.

2/ ‘Phantom’ by WEIRDS (Leeds, England)
“‘Phantom’ flicks between bombastic guitar sounds and psychedelic synths, and the lyrics
cut through all the sickly-sweet sludge like razorblades…” says singer Aidan Razzall. Can’t
agree more. A combination of thunderous guitars, atmospheric electronics and burning intensity. From their debut album ‘Swarm Culture‘ out 12 May via Alcopop! Records.

3/ ‘Just Touch’ by THE HUBBARDS (Hull, England)
Thrilling four-piece with magnetizing and melodic guitars turning this powered pop stroke into a dazzling experience. Big score! Official release of the single on 31 March via iTunes .

4/ ‘For Real’ by THE SUBHERBS (Oslo, Norway)

6/ ‘Glowing Red’ by REYKJAVIK KIDS (Newcastle, England)
Fascinating, rhythmic escapade pushed by glowing guitars, dreamy electronics and passionate vocals. An intensive journey reminding me of early Nine Inch Nails…

7/ ‘Into The Wild‘ by SANKOFA (Liverpool, England)
A slow moving blues injected guitar serpent heading towards an electrifying, menacing finale. The band will release their debut album later in the year. Details on PledgeMusic.
