7 new rad indie injections to load up your batteries every 7 days
8 August 2022
Funky drum-driven groove with an immediate, vitalizing impact on the movements of your limbs. Shiny synths here and there, lively guitar lines, and in the middle the wonderful voice of Giuliana Frontini (who also wrote the lyrics) growing in fervor in the middle and near the end.

“Happy is a song about how the world can appear when medication such as Mirtazapine provides the much needed rose tinted glasses that allow me to participate in the ever grinding cogs of a crumbling capitalist society.”
This is dope stuff to wake up to for a HAPPY day. This is a rap-turous-pop firecracker
to turn your depressive state of mind upside down. This is sonic medication that helps
to survive all the shit going on right now on our chaotic planet.
The infectious lividity from the kick-off made me immediately smile from left to right and back. It’s sickly sticky, jangly and jaunty, vivid and vibrant with exuberant guitars all over the place, exultant vocals, and a dynamic chorus. These 2 lucky days deserve tons of fresh air.
Track from their excellent A Good Mother’s Hell EP.

This is a splendid dream-pop tune that sticks on the spot. Sparkling guitars,
an infective cadence, shiny synths here and there, and warm-hearted vocals.
The War On Drugs are not far away.
FINE CHINA: Discography
When you mix sassy ska fueled with zestful trumpets, guitar electricity à la Television‘s
Tom Verlaine and your song is shorter than a Ramones one my ears are all ears. So should be yours.
“Bull is written from the perspective of someone who feels
a change within themselves. From denial, to acceptance.”
This is a greatly orchestrated pop symphony moving like a rollercoaster. Fizzing synths, robust drum/bass, scintillating 4-strings, passionate vocals, and a heartfelt chorus. Score!

Sonic dreaming at its finest with a tantalizing tune that
gets under your skin, slowly but surely. Relaxing, uplifting
and airy-fairy. Just what you need on a lazy day in the sun.
As the band says themselves: ‘Our music is the sonic equivalent
of waking up in a good mood, a tight blend of dancea’.
