Single of the Week | SPINN – ‘It’s Not Getting Better’

Spinn - It's Not Getting Better

Liverpool Band SPINN provide another gem with ‘It’s Not Getting Better

It has been quite the year for SPINN wth them hitting a few Spotify milestones (‘Notice Me’ hitting over a million), as well as releasing one of the best EP’s so far this year. However they haven’t let this momentum slip with a tour scheduled for September this year, and also releasing this gem of a song.

It’s Not Getting Better’ is still very much in touch with the sounds SPINN showcased on their EP, with those atmospheric dreamy guitars and a riff to die for. The pace is slower than their fan favourites ‘I See Through You’ and ‘After Dark’ but the track is still of that same breed. The production on the track is also something that should be noted, as it’s levelled perfectly and the outro seems like it’s been lifted directly from the heavens.

That’s it for this weeks Single of the Week. If you think you have a hot single on your hands then get in touch!

Single of the Week | Marsicans – ‘Pop Ups (Sunny at the Weekend)

Leeds Band Marsicans grabs Single of the Week!

With it being Sunday, it can only mean one thing – Single of the Week. Pretty difficult week, as you had a lot of new tracks being released including the one from Palava on Friday.

However, it has to go to Marsicans as they deliver with another bright and intelligent indie song for the Summer. They impressed earlier on in the year with the release of ‘Wake Up Freya’ which had great harmonies – but this song is a step above.

With uplifiting guitars and a convincing vocal performance, the band conjure up a a masterful track with an anthemic feel. After the dainty little intro, the song bursts into life and doesn’t let the pace drop. This is turning out to be one of the most impressive years for Marsicans, and this song is another step which proves it.

That’s it for this weeks Single of the Week. If you think you have a hot single on your hands then get in touch!

Single of the Week | Track Not Found – ‘Science Gone Wrong’

The Grungy Sound of Track Not Found gets Single of the Week

Single of the Week goes to grungy three piece band Track Not Found with their new song ‘Science Gone Wrong’. Leaning towards the more heavier side with the chunky bass riff, the band manage to craft a very catchy number with ease.

The erratic vocals create a sense of angsty chaos, which is only heightened with some good guitar work underneath. Track Not Found have a very real approach to their music, as you can hear that it’s personal and raw as they use it to get things off their chest.

Can easily see these three girls from Guernsey will be making some noise this year, with a string of shows lined up and hopefully more releases!

Exclusive! Campfire Social release new song “Breathe Out Slowly”

Campfire Social release Brand New Track ‘Breathe Out Slowly’

After releasing their incredible debut EP Wellbeing last year it was clear the Campfire Social had something really special to offer. With their glowing harmonies and tightly sewn riffs, the EP had a very positive vibe which felt like it was designed to be played out in the sun amongst ice cream and freshly cut grass.

Well after nearly 9 Months since releasing the EP, Campfire Social have returned in very timely fashion and gifted us with ‘Breathe Out Slowly’. This track very much follows suit of what Wellbeing was all about as they keep their charmingly bright harmonies and Summer-Fuelled riffs, while adding some subtleties to their repertoire.

The streak of positivity which runs through Campfire Social comes out in their songs, with this being a perfect example as the words “What if I was to tell you that everything works out fine” ring through my headThe breakdown of the track has more of an electric guttural approach, which is something there wasn’t a great deal of on Wellbeing so it’s great to hear that on the song.

The time away from releasing music hasn’t affected Campfire Social in the slightest. This track provides evidence the band have so much to offer, and I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one left wanting more.

With this being released it’s further evidence pointing to a successful year for the Birmingham music scene, watch it unfold.

NEW MUSIC NOW – Evvol – ‘Comfort Fit’



After a few days of gutsy rock music taking over the New Music Now section, we have Dublin/Berlin two-piece Evvol to break the mold with their new track ‘Comfort Fit‘.

Comfort Fit‘ is one of the promising songs coming off their new EP ‘Physical L.U.V‘ which will be released this coming Friday (13th May), and if this track is anything to go by, then the EP should be impressive. The track has a refreshing  feel surrounding with the sounds they use to accommodate the angelic voice of Julie and Jane, whose voices combine to create a unique partnership. Although the song is very light footed and delicate it has a dark undertone which doesn’t bring the song down, as it in fact makes it more classical giving it an impactful edge.

Make sure you grab your copy from their website ( this will be a really important release for the band and you will not want to miss out.

When you’re scouring the interwebs for new music, you never know what you might come across. A lot of it is bad, some is good and only very few bits are exciting, and ‘PLINK‘ by SQPR falls under the latter category.

The song has some a really attractive lead guitar in it with a riff that makes the toes tingle, which is the main hook here, however the band have more than one attraction. The vocals are distinct and commanding as lead signer Peter Harris Hawk powers out the words “I’ve become undone, I’m not what I was” as the fuzzy guitar behind it emphasizes the drama of the song. A nod of the head has to go towards the bass and drums as they’re perfect for the song as both are such important components to the song, as they refuse to linger in the background and become an afterthought.

The song comes out 20/5/2016 on Elevant Music Limited, so make sure you grab this track as soon as it’s released!

New Music Now! West of the Sun – ‘Siberian Hysteria’


West of the Sun are a new band that has been stumbled on by chance, and they’ve been found at the right time as they’ve just released their new single ‘Siberian Hysteria’. The five piece from North London have been around for just over three years, making a strong name for themselves gaining fans from all around the UK, and this new track will throw them deeper into the depths of recognition.

The fast paced build up initially fused with electronic sounds is an interesting way to start the track, and when the beat drops and the slow methodical guitar comes in the band have you in their hands. The song is relatively slow paced with a huge psychedelic influence spraying from all corners, yet it has this desert Arabian feel to it which is really sleek and different. The vocals are spoken and not thrown out at you, which mixes well with the feeling of the song especially as it spirals out at the end.
