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!

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!

Hotel Lux Berlin Wall

Hotel Lux’s ‘Berlin Wall’ gets Single of the Week!

It’s Sunday again, which means it’s time for Single of the Week, today see’s Hotel Lux’sBerlin Wall’ get that title in scary fashion.

Their new track, which is the flip side their single ‘Daddy’, features some haunting sounds with minmal vocals and it’s delightful. Their punky attitude is out on show for the whole song, and contrasting it with dark, dreary instrumentals it makes for an interesting listen. The cold “La la la’s” serve as a great side piece for the lead vocals to get in your face and spew his anger, a cool element to play off the piano.

That’s it for this week, hope you enjoy! If you think you have a Single of the Week on your hands please get in touch!

Midlands band get Single of the Week with ‘Come on Out


Ahead of their debut EP which is set to be released on Spetember 7th, The Americas have released the first teaser to get us excited. However the teaser was that good it manged to get Single of the Week.

Come On Out’ has a really laid back-slack vibe with the guitars plodding at their own pace, creating a sound similar to The Strokes at times. With vocals similar to Dylan’s in some respects, the track really has an american twang and feel to it, which doesn’t come off as it’s being put-on, it’s quite clear the band have a genuine love for that style of music, and they carry it so well.

The song stretches over 5 minutes, and it’s one you could easily hear being played over a BBQ while having a few beers in the sun.

That’s it for this week, you think you have a Single of the Week get in touch over twitter by messaging @WFMBlog or email:

Single of the Week | Quinn – ‘All The Best’

Quinn have always worn their influences on their sleeve – their uptempo brand of power-pop jangle wouldn’t be out of place alongside Teenage Fanclub and Dinosaur Jr – and up until recently they wore their heart on their sleeve too. But singer Sam Lambeth has decided on a new beginning: no more songs about doomed love and no more dominant guitars. The result is as refreshing as lemonade on a summer’s afternoon. ‘All The Best’ is a perfect pop song, effervescent, uplifting and life-affirming. The guitars are still there but now they’re dipped in woozy sunshine synths and, combined with Sam’s taut and distinct vocals, this is a new direction that is very appealing. In a delicious minor chord twist in the bridge, he sings, “we can be like Winona and Johnny” before launching into the catchy-as-hell chorus. I defy you not to sing along.

From the bottom of my heart I wish you all the best / But I never thought that I would miss you

This is a song you’re not going to forget any time soon. The middle eight before the last glorious chorus says “I’ve been waiting, I’ve been waiting, I’ve been waiting for you”. Well, I’ve been waiting for the summer and boy, here it comes.

Single of the Week | Our Girl – ‘I Really Like It’ (Alternative)

London Trio Our Girl release a beautiful alternative version of ‘I Really Like It’ 

Even though this song isn’t strictly a single, it really does need a spotlight putting on it. Earlier this year London Trio Our Girl I Really Like It’ which was a very touching and hoenst song filled with heartfelt lyrics graced with an indie twinge.

On May 23rd the band released an alternative version of the song, which is a much more stripped back version which highlights Soph Nathan’s soft voice, blending so well with the subtle instrumetnals. The sonn is completley packed with reverb bringing a isolated feeling to the track.

Both versions are amazing so listen to the original below!


That’s it for this weeks Single of the Week, if you think you have a hot single in your hands, send it over to!

Single of the Week | The Blinders – L’etat C’est Moi

Doncaster trio The Blinders get Single of the Week with ‘L’etat C’est Moi


After a couple of weeks away from Single of the Week, The Blinders are here to fire it back up again. Their earlier release this year ‘Gotta Get Through’ was one of the bands’ best tracks to date, and ‘L’etat C’est Moi‘ sits right up their with it.

The track sees The Blinders jump head first into heavy riff territory, with the bass playing another riff which is as devilish as it is memorable. Frontman Thomas Haywood once again throws a huge amount of charisma into the track, giving the song a distinctive Blinders tattoo. The passion oozes from start to finish, and the chorus is another tasty one, proving that the Donny band quite clealry have a knack at writing an endearing chorus.

That’s it for Single of the Week this week hope you enoyed it, the blog is back up and running so feel free to email if you think you have a single of the week on your hands!

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!

Single of the Week | The Novus – ‘Greyscale’



Midlands band The Novus get Single of the Week with ‘Greyscale’

This week marked another great week for music with a lot of bands releasing some new stuff. However it’s The Novus who gets single of the week for their triumphant new song ‘Greyscale’.

The song has a very click your fingers sound to it, with the incessant drum beat and attitudinal vocals. The simple but catchy riff is satisfying to listen to, but to get the full feel it needs be played loud and you’ll be singing “There’s a weight upon my shoulders” in no time.

The guys are playing alongside Ivory Wave on 27th April at the Birmingham O2 Academy 3, make sure you get tickets for this one!

Single of the Week | Carnival Club – ‘Sin City’


Manchester Band Carnival Club get Single of the Week with ‘Sin City’


Single of the Week hasn’t been represented by a Manchester band so far this year, and Carnival Club are the ones to break that duck.

Sin City’ has a hard rock vibe with heavy guitars combined with screaming riffs, all with a very sleek edge. Regardless of the band coming from Manchester you’ll hear no hint of the famous Madchester sound, as the band give off a completely different feeling. The powerful chorus is one which is easily grasped onto, and when it’s delivered by the charismatic Kai Jon Roberts its made even more poignant.

You can easily see a crowd of people losing themselves to the track, along with the other great tracks the band have in their portfolio.


Sat 16/06/18 – Night People, Manchester – Tickets
