Northwest purveyors of Alt-Indie Psych Rock KEEF released their sanity-saving earworm ‘In This Town’ on November 13th, 60’s Psych tones are teased, but there’s no escaping the present in this damningly danceable depiction of the 21st century.
Sticky-sweet kaleidoscopic accordance introduces despondent vocals which allow you to taste the grit of modernity whilst savouring the roguish foreboding derision which only Northern artists can serve up with such finesse and sincerity.
The playful venom which is spat towards people who obnoxiously make the world a bleaker place was the catharsis fix I never knew I needed.
In This Town affirms the necessity of music which permits a collective sense of consolation by feeding our frustrations back at us with the assurance that you’re not alone in your nihilism. While I’m gutted I can’t listen to it live and embrace the psychotropic effects of the eccentrically nuanced instrumentals in a sweaty euphoric crowd, I’m overwhelmingly gratified that I got a dopamine hit from this scathingly choral hit all the same.
In This Town will be available to stream on all major platforms from November 13thvia this link.

Singer-songwriter Brat Pitt has made their debut with their unforgettably stunning Lo-Fi Indie single “Wallow”. If you could imagine what it would sound like if you put the Beatles, Elliott Smith and The Smiths in an aural blender, you’ll get an idea of just how distinctively mesmeric Wallow is.
The intimate bedroom Pop feel amplifies the accessibility of the candidly connectable single which has plenty of earworm potential. While the nuances of Surf Rock, Psych Pop, and Indie Jangle Pop ensure that you’ve never ingested dreamy melodic alchemy quite like this before. With an upcoming EP in the works, Brat Pitt is definitely one to watch.

The Calls found the perfect balance of Indie, Psych, Shoegaze, and Post-Punk with their latest transfixingly reverb-soaked single “Fall Inside”.
The Leeds-based newcomers made sure the melodies are equipped to make your soul feel lighter while also bleeding a potent amount of 90s nostalgia which is sure to appeal to fans of the Stone Roses.
Their talent transcends assimilation through their signature tonal experimentalism. The progressions come with a captivating kaleidoscopic hypnotic appeal. There’s also a more cutting edge to Fall Inside which means fans of The Cure and Echo and the Bunnymen will want to make room for Fall Inside on their playlists.
The Calls have well and truly broken the mould with Fall Inside. I can only imagine how unholy the walls of noise they conjure in their live performances are.
You can check out the official music video to Fall Inside which premiered on March 6th for yourselves via YouTube.

Before I even hit play on Club Hula’s latest single “Flower Girl” I was already enamoured by the fact there are artists out there with the intent to create “sad, naïve love songs”. When I’d immersed myself in the 60s surf-inspired Indie Pop track, I realised that the naivety of amorous music is so much sweeter when it is ironically used.
The Oslo-based solo artist’s sound may drip with kaleidoscopic vintage colour, but the psychedelic textures have been contorted into a soundscape which revives the hazy melodies into ones which exude massive amounts of contemporary appeal.
Flower Girl was inspired by the frustrative lornness of catching a glimpse of someone that continues to evade your thoughts long after they’ve disappeared from view. The sticky-sweet sentiment definitely didn’t fail to resonate.
