Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

20 August 2019

Band: GHOST CAR

Who: “An all female rock-riot girl type band, with sickly sweet voices mixed with haunting keyboard sounds and gritty punk guitars and bass. They’re like a mixture between an all female version of the Cramps and a more punk, grunge version of Tennis. Crazy, and dead nice too!”

Pick: AWKWARD – the band’s new and first single for Greenway Records

Score: This oiled London-based foursome speeds up like a Grand Prix race car on their
new flashing ripper. The way they merge pop catchiness and punk velocity will boost your adrenalin’s flow and make your head spin 360°. Their speedy harmonious vocals hit you sharp and clear and their guitars go nuts midway. They buzz and rush like the best. ‘Awkward‘ is an expeditious steamroller. Capture all the giddy commotion right here…

Amplified Welsh Popsters SEAZOO Drop New Vivid Single ‘THROW IT UP’…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

15 August 2019

Amplified Welsh posters SEAZOO just dropped the lead single from their sophomore album set for release early next year.

Frontman Ben Trow commented on the new cut, titled THROW IT UP as follows: “I see a lot of people rejecting aspects of modern life, like tech, tech platforms, even careers as a way
of trying to improve happiness. Some people make extreme lifestyle changes, like moving into
a forest, or selling-up and moving into a van. But I also see people getting rid of their smart phones or deleting their social media. So I guess the song’s about making the decision to reject something in an attempt to improve well-being”.

Throw It Up‘ is a terrifically snappy ripper that will activate your eager ears directly. An incandescent tune pushed by a thumping beat, intensified by rapturous guitars and some organ sparks and rollin’ from start to finish. Avid score! Zealous drift! Catch the itchy vibe here…

Discover London Based Band Called NORTH AMERICA And Their New Single ‘MY BABY’S NO ONE’S GIRL’…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

14 August 2019

Band: NORTH AMERICA

Who: North America are a London based 5-piece creating viscerally energetic and introspective indie-rock that embodies the anthemic quality of their songwriting. Hailing from São Paulo and California, frontman P.F. Phillip met guitarists Gabe Coulter, Jack Rennie, bassist Sandro Giacometti and drummer Sam Roberts and formed the band in 2017 over a refined appreciation of trashy American comedies and questionable pizza joints.

Pick: MY BABY’S NO ONE’S GIRL – newest single – the song reads like “a candid letter of warning about a lover slipping through your fingers, as fond memories turn to bittersweet retrospect.”

Score: This is young fresh romantic indie pop that will make you think of New-Zealand daydreamers The Veils‘s playful way of songwriting, but you’ll also hear floating echoes of the late Buckley family. This musing’s tone is idyllic, melancholic and starry-eyed. Its sonic resonance is captivating and galvanic with an electrical finale that probably emphasizes the obsessive love for the heroine of the song. Discover the amorous glow here…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

11 August 2019

Artist: TEROUZ

Who: The guise of Cairo born Illustrator/singer/songwriter Karim Terouz, who moved to Montreal in 2008. He fronted and managed award-wining, brassy, folk/rock quintet ‘The Rsing Few‘ for several years

Pick: OUTSTANDING – solo debut single – “an ode to my journey of renewal. It documents a major growth spurt of self-acceptance, letting go, going for it, forgiveness and deep love, not to mention tons of hysterical and sombre sarcasm – my life experience steeped in loss, pain, and fierce reality checks. All of this led me to wisdom, strength, love, and a deep appreciation for good old, consistent groove” says Terouz

Score: This is high-quality songwriting. Pop noir at its very best. Both catching and touching with echoes from The National and Beirut. Amazingly orchestrated, richly arranged and Terouz’s appealing vox all over it. Capture the dancey vibe right here…
