5 New Indie Injections – Week 41 – 2022
New rad indie cuts to re-charge your batteries with, weekly
10 October 2022
Band: RED LAMA
Who: Formed by five friends from Svendborg, Denmark in 2011. Since then, the sextet has been refining their unique take on psych rock, music for the inner journey, carried forward by melody, groove and soundscapes exploding in grand crescendos.
New single: CHAOS IS THE PLAN
Third shared track from the upcoming new
album – their 3rd – Memory Terrain, landing
on 4 November.
Johannes Havemann Linnet Kissov (lead singer): “Chaos is the Plan is very much about atmosphere. The industrial, smoldering and slightly clubby atmosphere seems almost cinematic to me. The final form of the lyrics depicts a semi-sociopathic character drifting aimlessly quietly in the shadows, in disturbingly calm dialogue with himself.”
Expect a hypnotic and magnetic psych jam moving
hauntingly propelled by a groovy bass riff, sinister
synth layers, weeping guitars and emotive vocals.

Band: TWIN CITY
Who: Gritty Indie Rock & Roll band
based in Bristol, UK
New single: LOOKING GLASS
The sassy swagger of early Oasis and the energizing emotionality
of the Manics. Pretty cool, right? You betcha. Electrical Britpop
at its fervent best. Fabulous stroke!

Artist: LE CYGNE NOIR
Who: Little is known about the identity of this British musician.
His debut album Shadow of a Wrecking Ball was released in 2019.
New single: BURN BUNDY BURN
A piece from the upcoming Halloween
EP Death & Consequences, out on 28 October.
Noir: “I was writing at the piano and kept feeling a tap on the back, I was initially scared to death, I could feel a strange dark force feeding me words which I wrote down’ and decided to embrace it and use it. It was all I had. Sometimes inspiration can come from a strange place, and this was quite intense to say the least.”
Set at the frenzied speed of 165bpm, ‘Burn Bundy Burn‘ lurches out of the stereo
like Squeeze having a stab at “Bat Out Of Hell” while dialling up the fear factor to 11. The song is about American serial killer Ted Bundy (1946-1989).
It’s an zipped earworm fos sinister souls motorzied with schizophrenic
guitars, sultry sax fragements, pitty piano touches and menacing vocals.

Artists: NEIN DANKE
Who: Femal fronted acid punk duo. A crossover between German punk, Wave / Postpunk and Industrial. They pair uptempo tracks with dadaesc German lyrics on the adversities of life (as a woman and in general).
New single: GEISTERBAHN
From the pair’s new forthcoming EP.
This electronic kamikaze knockout rushes and races
like a fucked-up runaway train on its way to crash.
I dig this. You’ll dig this. I went bonkers, you’ll go bonkers.
I jumped up and down like a kangaroo on drugs, so will you.
Right here, right now…
