Hard rock newcomers Musicismost have made their distortedly electric debut with ‘Pheromone Too’

While most of us spent the summer of 2020 in enforced sun-and-over-drinking (the lucky ones with gardens, anyway) or locked down indoors, it seems Musicismost were not just forming in Chiswick, West London, but recording this, their first single.

‘Pheromone Too’ is a fast-paced, high energy rock track in the style of the Chilli Peppers, Muse, or Royal Blood, with maybe a little funky Lenny Kravitz vibe thrown in for good measure. It rocks hard, distorted guitars vying with up-front breathy vocals for attention. Releasing your first single all about pheromones – something invisible which can’t be detected but which influence our behaviour – is a pretty bold stroke, but it seems Musicismost can just about pull it off.

Prepare for your soul to ascend with Zach Robinson’s ardently eclectic single “Change”

With Zach Robinson’s aural inspirations ranging from Rush to The Police to Red Hot Chilli Peppers to Billy Joel, you’ll get a serious hit of soulful nostalgia when you hit play on their standout single “Change” on their 2020 EP “Evolve”.

It kicks off with smooth seductive popping grooves before the Alt Rock elements start to dominate the soundscape and replace the funky ska rhythms with ardent licks of Rock which add an overwhelming amount of intensity to the track.

Change is a stunning release. The energy. The urgency. The passion. The talent. Each aspect combines to leave you feeling like your own soul has transcended when you get to the outro of this inherently stylistic mix.

The Tinkermen releases single Dragging Me Down

The Tinkermen has dropped their latest single ‘Dragging Me Down’ a pure Alternative Rock piece with electrifying instrumentals and raucous vocals.

Starting off with the heavy electric shred on the guitar as the hard-hitting drum beats collide, amping up the volume and letting that pure Rock instrumental illuminate in the background. Making sure to keep that heaviness seeping through.

Killing it with the rough texture to the vocals and keeping them at a steady pace, adding in the occasional high-pitched shout that cuts through every element. The vocals tend to lower towards the middle as this overwhelming suspense fills the air. Then it all kicks back off with a bang going straight into that hardcore instrumental and the insane vocals.

Throughout it tends to sway back and forth between the heavy version and the more mellow version of the song as they combine together to create these crazy breakdowns.

This is one you must check out for sure, it really shows what The Tinkerman has to offer in a loud and manic way!

Pop-Punk quartet Monkey Knife Fight releases fiery single Seeing Red

Four-piece Pop-Punk band Monkey Knife Fight has dropped their single ‘Seeing Red’, it’s energetic, it’s honest and it’s truly amazing.

This female-fronted band needs all the praise and recognition for creating such incredible music, pulling inspiration from Pale Waves and Paramore. The story behind the lyrics is based around miscommunication, infusing this anger and frustration through a highly energetic piece of music.

They give their own modern day take on their style, it’s fiery and has a whole lot of angst being pushed through, it’s distorted in places but that doesn’t sway away from the fact it’s super lively, the vocals are more on the Pop style, embracing the high notes that are hit and having these booming vocals that are sure to be attention grabbing.

This band has so much potential and ones you should be adding to your playlist. it’s about time this year had a bit more of a modern day twist on Pop-Punk and these guys definitely brought that.

Check them out by heading over to SoundCloud and you can always listen to their latest piece Seeing Red.
