Oceaán- Neéd U

Everyone is posting this. That’s because it’s real good. I know nothing about Oceaán except that he/they are from Manchester. Summer vibes all round.

I Break Horses- Denial

I Break Horses‘ debut Hearts was one of my favourite albums of 2011, and one I still listen to regularly. I am therefore incredibly pleased at the arrival of this new song. Yet another strong electronic track, with elements of dream-wave in Maria Linden’s voice. Perfect!

Bridie Jackson and the Arbour- Prolong

You probably already know that Bridie Jackson and the Arbour were this years winners of the Glastonbury Emerging Talent Competition. They were also my pick in the blogger stages of the competition, so I felt very proud when they won. I went to see them perform their winners slot at Glastonbury in the Acoustic Tent, and they proved to me that they more than deserved their win. A stunning performance from a band made up of incredibly talented musicians.

‘Prolong’ is the next single from the band and is yet again another haunting number, with Bridie’s voice delicately weaving it’s way through the lush string arrangements.

Ellie Goulding- Burn

Ah, remember back in the day when Ellie Goulding appeared on the scene as a ‘folktronica’ act, guitar in hand, and her pretty songs showcasing her quirky voice. A few years later she has developed into a fully fledged pop star. She’s got the hits, the looks and the voice to make her a megastar who is still credible. She’s come a long way over the years, and still managed to keep me engaged and excited about her music and her live shows. 

‘Burn’ is her new single and it’s the biggest pop-hit yet. Also pretty suitable for this weather we’re experiencing. It will be released on August 18th.

Pale Seas- Evil Is Always One Step Behind

It’s been a while since we’ve heard from London 4-piece Pale Seas. I expect that’s because they’ve been busy recording their debut album, set to be released later this year. This 7 minute track is the first we’ve heard from the debut record. Despite its length, it’s engaging and shows a real step up in songwriting from the band.

They play Hoxton Hall later this month but unfortunately it’s already sold out.
