Five Fervent Firecrackers – STAY ON TRACK IN THE WEEKEND…

7 August / 9 August 2020…

Five new firecrackers to fuel your weekend…

1. ‘You Say’ by Madame So (Paris-born, London-based)
A middle finger to all hostile killjoys out there. Kicking off with a powered guitar riff,
soon followed by Madame So‘s vox hitting the roof with the titanic You Say chorus.

2. ‘Violent Sun’ by EVERYTHING EVERYTHING (Manchester/London)
A terrifically swirling stomper with a last chance message, so don’t
hesitate to get up and dance like Doomsday is just around the corner.

3. ‘Spanish Bombs’ by HINDS (Madrid, Spain)
“As Spaniards, we don’t usually get shout-outs in songs, like New York or London,
so the Clash writing a song about our civil war made us feel honored.”

4. ‘Something More’ by ROISIN MURPHY (London, UK)
Sensual dance diva returns with “a swan-song to how we once lived. There’s plenty of
bravado in the lyrics and the character is a kind of antihero but the indefinable yearning
and the feeling of arriving at a point of emptiness is universal right now!”.

5. ‘Club Zero‘ by GO GO’S (Los Angeles)
Out of the blue, the legendary power-pop punkettes, led by Belinda Carlisle, formed in L.A. in 1978, surprise us with their first new song in nearly 20 years. The new cut’s copacetic catchiness and vitalizing joyfulness put a big smile on your face. Welcome back, ladies.

See/hear you next week, music junkies
