GURU - Suntrap




GURU - Suntrap

Falling behind with recent emails, I've finally unearthed the latest (or rather now 2 months old) new single from Brighton's GURU. Having impressed immensely with their previous cut Consumer Helpline, the band return to unleash plenty more raw angst-driven bass-heavy noise with the monstrous Suntrap. Wasting no time with its charging melodies and punk-inspired vocals, the band's latest single serves as another fantastic addition to their collection. Take a listen for yourselves below.



GURU are Tommy Cherrill (vocals), Kieran Hunter (guitar), Ferg Belfrage (bass), Simon ‘Danny Boy’ Daniels (drums).

Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard - Late Night City

Considering I'm Welsh and still very much live here, the amount of home-grown music I write about is shockingly slim-to-none. That's not to say there ain't bucket loads of it here, because that'd be a lie - more so to the fact I'm lazy at finding it. That's all about to change though with latest to cross my radar, Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard. Today the Cardiff-based four-piece have unveiled their latest single Late Night City. Explaining its conception singer Tom Rees gets in to its nitty-gritty detail: "This tune fully explores the deeply rooted constitutional issues with work and play, and I’m excited at the prospect of folks rocking to this song whilst doing both, even if it is steeped in horrific irony. I also wanted to write a song that expressed my love for the Eagles and I think I may have finally done it!". As for track, I think it'd be hard to find catchier riffs and a fuzzy warmth quite like it as they give nod to Bowie, Marc Bolan and Bill Fay along their way. Take a listen to‘Late Night City’ for yourselves below.

WILDES - Circles

British multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter and all-round wunderkind Wildes today shares her stellar new effort, Circles. Written on a subject I'm sure many of us can relate to, searching for an escape from the maze-like prison a failing relationship can often feel like, its rousing call to arms serves as a profound snap back to reality. "Circles is a song written about getting lost in the familiarity of a failing relationship" Ella Walker explains. "It's far easier to go through the motions than to admit to yourself that you are unhappy, so you continue, avoiding confrontation and living on the boundaries of that relationship. Something that was once beautiful becomes ugly, warped and toxic." Take a listen to the smokey, sometimes fragile, yet often empowering new single below. Wildes continues work on her debut record, due later this year.

Johan - fifteen




Blending his falsetto vocals across a futuristic soul-inspired production, LA-Based artist Johan returns with his latest single Fifteen. Written about his days well spent, all the time just wishing to go back to having no responsibilities, Fifteen explores the incredible range of dynamics through the track's wide-screened melodies and head-rushing realism. "In Fifteen, I was reminiscing about a time when I was younger and aimlessly fucking around in Boston" he epxlains. "I often wish I could get back to that feeling of being carefree and directionless, just hanging with friends, getting high, riding the train in and out of the city with little concern about the future. But it’ll never be quite like that again for me or my friends because we all have real responsibilities now. And we just have to be fine with that". Take a listen for yourselves below.

Jolé - All I Need

London-based singer, songwriter and producer Jolé returns today with his escaping new single ‘All I Need’. Renown for his palatable, soft natured folk essence, his latest effort blends warming atmospherics with swirling string sections and contemplative vocals. "All I Need is about trying to heal a relationship" explains Josh Oliver aka Jolé. "When you have a devotion to one another but you aren’t in such a great place. Hoping you can work through it, to give someone all they need as well as you giving them everything that you would need too. It’s about learning to appreciate everything that’s beautiful in a relationship/friendship when you may have lost sight of it." Take a listen for yourselves below.
