Grunge, sunset sleaze and 90s Britpop viscerally converge in the latest single, Let’s Ride, from the indie nostalgia raconteurs, The Elegant Chasers. The anthemically-layered fuzzed up indie reincarnation is robust enough to shove the most iconic tracks from the 90s into the shoegaze category. The scuzzy guitars distortedly create a platform for the high-energy vocals that fall somewhere between Axl Rose and Ian Brown.
If you’re looking for a full-frontal trip back to the most iconic era of indie, Let’s Ride is your fastest mode of transport.
Let’s Ride is due for release on November 26th; you can check it out for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud.
In the ultimate pop-rock crossover, London-based rock guitarist, producer and songwriter, Footless Kicks sent us back to the Britpop era with his debut single, E1 2AM. The devilishly clever single carries the same blissful tones as the Roses along with the driving momentum of JBD’s anthemically charged riffs in The Manic’s most soul-sating hits. Vocally, Footless Kicks truly came into his own. The solo artist’s gruffly soulful vocal timbre is complemented by the dynamic range of the guest female vocalist whose dreamy harmonies sit between Mazzy Star and My Bloody Valentine.
With more singles in the pipeline and the teasing of an album, any alt-90s fan will want Footless Kicks on their radar.
E1 2AM is due for official release on November 8th; you can catch it for yourselves on SoundCloud.
60s psych-pop and 70s rock collide in the latest single to be released by the Exeter-based newcomer James Sebastian. ‘Lemon Sunshine’ is a stridently impassioned single that is viscerally flooded with raw vocal emotion but the dreamy vintage tones of the consistently ascending instrumentals take all of the sting out of the vocal defiance.
If you can imagine the point where the Beatles and the Stone Roses meet in the middle, you’ll get an idea of the kind of refreshing nostalgia James Sebastian is serving here. Lyrically, Sebastian delivered the ultimate post-breakup track that captures that bitter-sweet moment when you’re reminded of your own power and make no bones about taking it back.
Lemon Sunshine is now available to stream on Spotify.
Love reaches all of us. Brighton boys ‘8udDha bl0od’ show their gentle side with the new single ‘’Track 10’’.
I feel the lyrics on this one as the pain of love is sometimes hard to deal with. It’s tough to understand and we do need to deal with it eventually to fully heal, to get the feeling out of us in order to move on. This song is clearly very personal and is best listened to with the volume up very loud- so that each part of the song is truly appreciated for its execution.
Locked away in a countryside cabin for nine months shortly after forming as a band to develop a sound that the band wanted, ‘8udDha bl0od’ are now one of my favorite artists. Influenced by well-known favourites such as Stone Roses, Brian Jonestown Massacre and Tame Impala, this is a group that puts out incredible music with soul & meaning.
