Melbourne’s THE ATTICS Challenge Social Media On New Frisky Single ‘INSTANT FEED’…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

21 July 2019

Melbourne’s amplified pop act THE ATTICS dropped a new
cut from their forthcoming album called ‘INSTANT FEED‘.

The band says the song is “all about analysing the relationships that exist between ourselves and social media. Lyrically, it’s encouraging people to step back and observe exactly what it is we’re doing when we curate an Instagram feed or build our online profile. Ironically, whilst poking fun at just how deeply socials have infiltrated our lives, as a band, it’s now impossible
to live without it.”

Instant Feed‘ is a frisky jam with a driving beat, frolic guitars, jaunty harmonies and a sticky Beatles-esque chorus. This swirling pop peppiness will stimulate you to press the repeat button a couple of times and share it on your social media accounts of course. Check the playful shakiness out right here…

Here’s Turn Up The Volume‘s Knockout October Team!

.

With Moderate Rebels it’s all about intoxicating mantra-like psych grooves. Like a mind-expanding mix of Velvet Underground, The Dandy Warhols and Spacemen 3. Far-out stuff!

2. I Don’t Care Anymore by BIG TIME KILL (Boston, US)

3. ‘Bar Stool Warriors’ by GARETH SAGER & THE HUNGRY GHOSTS (Scotland)
This is what happened when longtime post-punk chameleon Gareth Sager invited the ghosts of Captain Beefheart & Frank Zappa for a cup of tea and a rad jam. Full result here.

4. ‘Turn The Knife’ by PALM GHOSTS (Nashville, US)
A feverish mixed emotions pop pearl build around a stellar melody with layers of sparkling guitars and elevated by the enrapturing effect of duet vocals. Both dazzling and haunting.

5. ‘Money Money’ by RICHARD ASHCROFT (England)
Closing track of the legend’s brand new album. Hottest, hookiest and rockiest cut of all.

6. ‘The Witness’ by HERSELF (Italy)
Most upbeat, most funky and most vibey stroke on new LP by singer/songwriter Gioele Valenti aka Herself. Find out more about the whole album ‘Rigel Playground‘ right here.

You’ll feel groovy, you’ll look groovy and your swaying hips will make other people go groovy when you’re walking the streets with this earworm on your headphones. Ace!

8. ‘Beacon’ by THE MIGHTY ORCHID KING (St Albans, UK)
Expect kooky guitars, a pulsating rhythmic tandem, an overall buzzing resonance, echoing vocals and karma-like 60s harmonies. Yesterday is the new today! Time to chill out! Yeah!

9. ‘Secret’ by VAUREEN (Brooklyn, NY, US)
As much decibels as My Bloody Valentine, as dark as Killing Joke and with Lydia Lunch‘s enigmatic spirit on vocals. Outcome? Like a pitch-black Neil Young hurricane. Puzzling!

10. ‘Victoria Park’ by RED TELEPHONE (Cardiff, Wales)
Melancholic melody, starry-eyed vocals and an overall gratifying warmth that makes you long for happy-go-lucky childhood days. Reminds me of romantic popsters Scritti Politti.

11. ‘Dream Apartment’ by OH FOR (Finland)
This humdinger’s jazzy bass warmth, its twinkling orchestration and its intimate vocals will make your thoughts drift away to the room in your mind where you can freely fantasize.

Melbourne’s THE ATTICS Aim At Your Hips With Groovy Pop Vibe ‘PASTEL BLUES’…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

10 October 2018

Band: THE ATTICS (Melbourne, Australia)

Pick: PASTEL BLUES – new single – the band’s Cameron Wade says “it’s the least serious thing we’ve written in years. It’s a playful exploration of the phrase on repeat in the chorus, “wondering how it feels bad to be good all the time”. It’s a really dumb set of words, but a funny thing to think about in depth. So we’re exploring that with this kind of wandering commentary, reconfirming that life would be super bland if we only ever did what we were told we should. I think you can almost feel the music taking a few steps back and lazily fall into line with the idea.”

Score: I just love the spirit and the pace of this poppy groover. Why? Put it on your iPod when walking through your city. You’ll feel groovy, you’ll look groovy and your swaying hips will get enough attention to cause a buzz and make everybody go groovy and singing out loud “wondering how it feels bad to be good all the time“. Get the picture? C’mon let’s all go out, swing in the streets and save this troubled world, at least for today…
