Bad Luv – Liquid Love: An Infectiously Raucous Feat of Scuzzy Indie Rock n Roll.

Bad Luv found the perfect mix of raucous rhythms and anthemic energy with their latest single release “Liquid Love”. There’s also a nuanced infusion of Rock n’ Roll sleaze which resonates through the throbbing basslines and serpentine guitar licks while the Bad Luv vocalist throws plenty of abrasive swaggering charm into the single.

In short, Liquid Love contains the visceral ingenuity which you’d hope to hear when hitting play on an up and coming Alt Rock artist’s latest release. Even though all of the cornerstones of Rock n Roll can be found in the scuzzy frenetic hit, each new progression leaves you more assured that Bad Luv is a band which are worth putting on your radar. Especially if you already have a penchant for the likes of Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes, Foals, and Nothing But Thieves.

Indie Alt Rock Newcomers Neon Bull Release Their Debut EP “Commercial Blvd”

Within Neon Bull’s debut EP “Commercial Blvd” you can expect to hear a smorgasbord of elements pulled from a myriad of genres; affirming my belief that the freshest sounds can only be born with little consideration to genre constraints.

With layers of Funk, Rock, Indie, and Pop, each of the 6 tracks on Commercial Blvd makes no apologies before hitting you with a high-octane hit of emotion. While there may be different facets of passion in each of the singles from feverish Rock, to softly intricate Pop Rock ballads you’ll be able to find it all on the truly dynamic record offered from Neon Bull. The standout track on the EP may have to be “Forever a Dream” which is on the same level of Hozier’s explosively ethereal single “Take Me to Church”.

Sound like incredibly high praise? Why not check out the South Florida based artist’s EP for yourselves by heading over to Spotify now.

David Wakeling – Almost Everything: Viscerally Compelling Indie Alt Rock

David Wakeling has described his latest track Almost Everything as ‘A Sonic Palette of Longing’, and well, I’m stumped to find better words for the viscerally compelling track. The Portland US based artist fused elements of Classic Rock, Indie, Americana and Post Punk to create a mix that any self-respecting audiophile will want to drink in. Whilst his vocals were dulcet and sweet the instrumentals absolutely stole the show with the sweet reverb which swept across each instrumental progression. Each of the acoustic instruments sat in perfect synergy as the track seamlessly meandered through the track.

With a slightly extended run time, you’re treated to plenty of lush guitar hooks and intricately euphoric melodies. Almost Everything is fairly different from anything else produced by the emerging artist, he’s injected the perfect amount of raucous vibrance to create the perfect Indie Anthem. It’s safe to say I have a firm favourite, yet his other tracks with a more Folk sensibility are equally as captivating.
