Single of the Week | DELIGHTS – ‘Jungle’

Delights - 'Jungle'

Manchester Band DELIGHTS grab Single of the Week with ‘Jungle’

It’s Sunday, which means it’s the time where we dive into all the new music which has recently been released and pick our favourite single!

This week it’s the Manchester band DELIGHTS, who delight (sorry) us with their brand new track ‘Jungle’!

Listen Below:

The simplistic track has a cool breeze feel about it, as the lead singer compares his lovers mind to a jungle, as they express the desire to get away. The riff is tight creating a nice little indie melody which could stick around for days, could easily see this track being added to a few playlists.

After releasing their first track back in 2017, Delights are still fresh but they can clearly put a quality indie track together, very looking forward to hear more.

Make sure you add this one to your playlist below!

Single of the Week | Ginger Snaps – ‘With Or Without Her’

Ginger Snaps - With or Without Her

Single of the Week gets Ginger Snapped!

Sunday, Sunday, Sunday it’s the return of Single of the Week, probably the longest running feature we’ve had here at WFM! This week we have the immensely talented Ginger Snaps who’s been dropping bangers since 2016 with ‘Phat Kids’!

His newest Single ‘With or Without Her’ has got Single of the Week for undeniable catchiness and wonderful production – something which is always prevalent on every Ginger Snaps track. This song takes a slower approach than it’s predecessors, as it seems lead singer Jay Brook seems to mulling over something as he sings “Take it easy little soldier / You’re almost done with this’.

Listen Below:

Jay’s casual rapsy delivery is really infectious and calming to listen to, as he reels off lyrics on top of this subtle crunch sounding drum beat with spiraling guitars. The crystal clear production is impeccable, which really makes this track stand out from a lot of other peoples. You can just tell by the way it sounds it’s been looked after and carefully crafted.

Ginger Snaps still continue to be one of my favourite acts of the year, and I expect something big from them next year like an EP or Album because I’ve got the taste for it, and I need to hear one!

Single of the Week | Chris Westwood – ‘Love & War’

Chris Westwood - Love and War

Chris Westwood takes his first steps going Solo and grabs Single of the Week

Sunday can only mean one thing, it’s Single of the Week. This is used to feature artists that you may not know about who have released something new this week, and the cream of the crop this time around is Birmingham Singer Songwriter Chris Westwood. After hanging up his electric guitar and leaving his previous band Dirty Little Lies, Chris has started his solo career which all starts with this release!

Chris takes to the piano for his single ‘Love and War’, which leans towards the more softer side of his musical talents. He delicately works his way around the keys to create a beautiful song.

It has some very soulful moments with the way the vocals are delivered, you can hear a hint of Paul Weller just when he started solo, a very strict voice which can reach those higher notes.

The tune is gentle and uplifting, something that Chris is able to take to another place with his vocals. The production of the track is also very well done, with the subtle strings which come in after the chorus, really softening it up.

This is only the beginning for Chris, as he still has big things he wants to accomplish. With a dedicated management behind him in Strawberry Moon Records, we will be hearing a lot more of his music going forward!

Single of the Week | FAITH – ‘1992’


Birmingham Band FAITH Release ‘1992′ Ahead of EP Two

After having a quiet period in the studio working on their second EP entitled Two, FAITH have released another teaser into what we can expect from their second EP. ‘1992′ is the second track the band have released on the lead up to  the EP, with ‘Honey‘ being the first, and it looks as though the band have firmly fell on their feet and found their sound.

Watch Below:

The slow, soft intro (which was recorded on Garageband), bares no resemblance to what the track turns into as a funky drum beat eases you in. The track has a very Stone Roses ‘Fools Gold’ type feel with wah-wah guitar sounds being a prominent feature, along with quick shifting drums.

The lyrics are something to note as they have a different style to previous FAITH tracks, with the song very much being a reflection on where the band are now, and where they want to be. The song is packed full with lyrics and they’re delivered in a rapid fire style, giving the track an upbeat, pacy energy.

One thing you can count on FAITH for is a good solo, and they deliver that here.  The solo lasts over a minute closing out the song, and is something marvel at. It’s well thought out and put together as it holds your attention while it works around the guitar.

It’s great to hear that the band are ready to release their second EP and play it to live crowds. Keep an eye out for the EP which will be released in September, cannot wait to seem them live!

Single of the Week | The Desert Yetis – ‘What Can I Do’

The Desert Yetis band

The Desert Yetis debut gets Single of the Week

It’s always exciting having a new band to dig your teeth into, but it’s even better when they come out with a banger. Coventry four-piece, The Desert Yetis have delivered on their first attempt at a single!

What Can I Do’  is a gritty dark guitar pop song which has a relentless unforgiving sound. The heavy bassline at the start of the track gives you a hint of what is to come, as eerie vocals leak in followed by the beautifully heavy distorted guitars. The band have created a very heavy sound which still has pop tendencies, making it lean subtly towards the indie genre. A special mention has to go out to that visceral guitar solo which really is a highlight for the track.

Listen Below!

That’s it fo Single of the Week this week, did you enjoy it?

This track has also been added to the 2018 WFM Play list which you can check out here!

Single of the Week | Twilight Driving – ‘Between The Sheets’

Twilight Driving - Between The Sheets

Twilight Driving claim Single of the Week!

As if Brighton didn’t have enough good bands coming out at the moment, with the likes of Gender Roles, Lazybones and Suzi Island – but they also now have Twilight Driving!

Their latest release ‘Between The Sheets’ will really act as a marker for the band as it’s a complete banger. The heavy synth work on the track really is something to enjoy,  along with the large driving guitars. The breakdown in the track is euphoric and it must sound satisfactory hearing the whole thing come together live.

This really is starting to feel like Brightons Year for music and we all should just sit back and enjoy it, as another Single of the Week heads down South in the UK!

Hope you enjoyed this weeks single, be sure to check out next week when I will have another one for you!

Single of the Week | Patawawa – ‘Fight Me’


DIY 3 Piece Disco Band Patawawa get Single of the Week

Unfortunately Single of the Week is a tad bit late this week due to life getting in the way, however here is this weeks Single of the Week and it’s a little different!

Usually here at WFM we have something a little rough around the edges, something with a bit of bite. However this week we’ve gone for something funky which shoud make you want to dance around! We give you Patawawa!

Their electro funk vibes are something to feast your ears on as it’s something completely different to what anyone else is doing at the moment. Their exterior screams indie rock but the music says otherwise as they invite to dance around the room in their latest release ‘Fight Me’.

It sounds like something that has been lifted straight from 70’s Disco and they’ve done it justice. The bass on the track is impressive along with the Nile Rodgers inspired guitar. It’s the vocals that really make the track as they have that postive upbeat sway which is needed in a song like this!

That was Single of the Week, hope you enjoyed it! If you think you have a Single of the Week on your hands please get in touch:

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 | Hotel Lux – ‘Berlin Wall’

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!

Single of the Week | The Americas – ‘Come On Out’

Come On Out [artwork].jpg

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.
