Falling Down And Standing Up – British Indie Youngsters INDECISIVE Go Through ‘THE MOTIONS’

Daily electricity to load your batteries

25 May 2022

Band: INDECISIVE
Who: 4 youngsters from Milton Keynes, UK

New single: THE MOTIONS
Only their second one in 3 years (don’t become Radiohead, guys)

Turn Up The Volume: Echoes from melancholic dream-pop experts Belle & Sebastian, a jangly cadence, a surprising intermezzo with a 60s Hammond-sounding organ and fabby psychedelic guitar juice and downcast vocals. All that in one song about falling down and getting up again, but fearful of going through the emotions again. Familiar feelings for so many youngsters. On the other hand, sad songs can be catchy too.

Check out the feel…

British Gunslingers MIMOSA Have A CONTAGIOUS Impact On Your Ears

Daily electricity 2022

24 May 2022

Band: CONTAGIOUS
Who: Northern indie lads from Sheffield, UK
making noise since 2022

New single: CONTAGIOUS

“Contagious was written during the second lockdown after being cooped
up at home like cattle but still having to attend work. It’s needless to say,
‘the times are scary’- essentially the song was written with the mentality
that music is the escape.”

Turn Up The Volume: What do you think of this? Topliners Arctic Monkeys
turning up their amps or Liverpool legends The La’s if they would have been
a rapid-fire punk turbo. Sounds mental, right? You bet your ass. Spiky guitars
zigzagging madly all over the place, John Bonham-like drum brutality, and Alex
Turner
‘s younger brother on vocals. Be ready to move like a nutter on a pogo
stick. Contagious badass pyrotechnics. Blitz-tastic.

Play it to the max…

Belgian Dreamers SUBATOMIC STRANGERS Transfer You To A ‘SPECIAL SATELLITE’ Of Love

Daily electricity to load your batteries

22 May 2022

Band: SUBATOMIC SATELLITE
Who: Synth/guitar pop act, with 80s echoes, from Belgium

New single: SPECIAL SATELLITE

A song about breaking free from all negative thoughts that haunt us day to day.

“Sometimes we just feel alone, like we are outsiders, as if we don’t belong anywhere,
like a satellite out in space. And when we’re feeling down, we just want to close ourselves
off from the world…according to the band’s statement: never give up!”

Turn Up The Volume: I’m sure you know that feeling of awakening in the morning and your first thought is ‘I don’t want to get up and face the cruel world, out there, today‘. But some smart cells in your brains tell you that you have no choice as you can’t escape realit. Not today, not tomorrow, never.

That very moment smooth and soft shanties like this one help you to ease your
moody state of mind. By mingling shimmery guitar sparks, shooting synths, spirited melodiousness, and comforting vocals in a happy-go-lucky way you can imagine you’re
on a special satellite where life colors pink again.

Lou Reed called it the satellite of love.

Enjoy the relaxing vibe…

Band: TIDAL WAVE
Who: Toronto-based art-rock team that evokes the melodic elements
of indie rock bands, while creating compelling production-heavy ambient
synth and guitar textures.

New single: SUNBLEACHED

“At a certain point you’re worn out from wearing your heart on your sleeve and feeling everything so deeply that there simply isn’t anything left to feel. And in that moment you
feel like it’s wrong to not be as broken up as you should be, but the physical truth is that
you can’t put yourself through that hurt anymore.”

Turn Up The Volume: Twinkling guitars draw you into this touchy-feely daydream from the get-go. The color is blue, the melody is melancholic, the voice is wondering. This is a shoegazy gem for heavyhearted hearts and vulnerable souls, a soothing score for all romantics among us. The vibe is idyllic, the tone is hazy, the final result is wondrous.

Listen/watch and feel better…

THE CHRONICLES OF MANIMAL AND SAMARA Fascinate Again With New Single ‘SHAMAN’

Daily electricity to load your batteries

21 May 2022

Band: THE CHRONICLES OF MANIMAL AND SAMARA
Who: London-based duo – Daphne Ang (Singapore) and
Andrea Papi
(Italy) – that fills a gap in music by bringing
literature, art, and history together into a space where
rock and metal meet electronica.

New album: TRUST NO LEADERS
Out: 1st July 2022
Pre-order: here

New single: SHAMAN

“Shaman’ narrates a journey of self-discovery into the depths of one’s psyche. Guided
by Jungian psychoanalytic theory, the song captures a personal confrontation with the unconscious in which one experiences the infinite and the energy of the universe. The song introduces the idea of attaining wholeness by uniting our inner and outer worlds
.”

Turn Up The Volume: This new piece progresses like a vicious viper sliding to its prey. Determined, but always wary of sudden danger. Shaman dumbfounds and flummoxes while the song’s tension intensifies and sends shivers down your spine.

No metallic explosions or abrupt pace changes this time, although it feels like a thunderstorm can happen as the mesmeric music swells along its ominous path
towards a demonic climax. Another fascinating piece de resistance, another
psychedelic exploit, another step closer to the new album.

Face your nature
Face your fears
Face your demons
Wake the dead

Montreal Duo DOWN WITH SPACE Race With Rabid Rage On ‘NOT YOUR TIME’

Daily electricity to load your batteries

 

 

20 May 2022

Band: DOWN WITH SPACE
Who: Montreal-based indie pop band comprised of
vocalist/guitarist Rob Helsten and drummer Steve Dumas.

New single: NOT YOUR TIME

Rob Herlsten: “The song was written to evoke memories of the good times, buoyed by music that is energetic and free. A cathartic process to put together, our new single was born in a jam room with a narrative which came to fruition later. These lyrics channel the memory of a friend of mine who is sadly no longer with us, lost to a needless accident.”

Turn Up The Volume: From the very start this unstoppable synth rammer races like
a runaway train on its way to crash. Bucked up by frustration and anger, following the untimely death of a friend, Herlsten expresses his grief with rabid rage. Life is not a fairytale, it can be very hard, unfair and painful.

When this hissy fit ends abruptly it’s like a movie with an open end.
In this case, the question is: did the train crash or not?

You know it’s not your time tonight
told me to relax I’m too up tight
You know it’s not your time tonight
you always could just let it ride
You know it’s not your time tonight
told me to laugh and see the light
You know it’s not your time tonight
nothing matters and we will be just fine
You know it’s not your time tonight
nothing matter so shut up and get high
You know it’s not your time

Metaltastic Goth Force WITCH FEVER Inspired By Holy Spirits On Hard-Bitten Single ‘CONGREGATION

Daily electricity to load your batteries

18 May 2022

Band: WITCH FEVER
Who: 4-piece female hit
team from Manchester.

Debut album: CONGREGATION
Out: 21 October 2022 via Music For Nations

Amy Walpole (vocalist): “As our first album we’re really excited to just
get it out there. We feel that it’s a step above what we’ve done before as
we had a chance to experiment with sound and structure. It was our first
opportunity to explore writing a body of work which was challenging but
has been so rewarding!”

New single: CONGREGATION

The lyrics of ‘Congregation’ were largely inspired by singer Amy Walpole’s
experience of growing up in a Charismatic Church, a form of Christianity that
emphasises the work of the Holy Spirit, spiritual gifts and modern-day miracles.
She left the church when she was 16, and her parents followed suit two years
later.

Turn Up The Volume: This is a slow-burning torch, a dark-colored belter, an excorcistic outcry resonating like Nightwish in scary slow-motion with a continuing riff penetrating your hypnotized mind, driven by frustration and anger following domination by spirit-filled beliefs. Walope‘s vocals and scorching guitars inject this furious serpent of a song with overwhelming grimness. Holy shit. Metaltastic.

16 May 2022

Band: LOWERY MILLS
Who: Canadian rockers from Kingston, ON.
Their unique brand of entertainment fuses
memorable riffs and a country influence.

Debut single: STRIKE LIKE THUNDER

About “The heart-wrenching emotions one feels when
away from their loved one for a long period of time.

Turn Up The Volume: This thunder and lighting corker strikes big time
from the first chord on, to the final one. Classic riffage rock with an anthemic
plangency, a flaming drive and a mammoth chorus. Add the aroused vocals
and the overall result is an ear-popping champion you’ll have on repeat for
a while. Triumphant score.

Listen/watch and rock out…
