Baby Strange get politically riotous on No Coin To Play, the latest cut from their forthcoming Extended Play EP next month. It echoes the sense of frustration so many of us share at the turmoil following Britain’s recent general election, as we can do nothing more but wait and hope that something resembling actual leadership might emerge from the mess.
Every now and again, Fizzy Blood ease off a little on the creepiness and write something headed in the direction of soaring modern alt-rock. Latest single Summer Of Luv is one such example, not anywhere near as hippy as the title might suggest but still sort of laid-back (well at least for the first half) by comparison to their other recent releases. The song is available digitally through Killing Moon, and now the heatwave has eased off to ‘bearable’, can be the one to dance away your summer nights to.
Well I may have written Wolf Alice off a little bit previously, for being decent but unimaginative sugar-coated grunge-pop. Latest single Yuk Foo is, however, none of those things. Screeching, cursing with a very direct and barely controlled anger, this is not like anything else around at the moment. Add in a simple but disquieting lyric video that builds on the drama, you won’t be forgetting this song anytime soon.
Is the insanely warm weather giving you Migraines? Trash are here to help. Not only do they feel your pain, but their upbeat fuzz-pop can’t fail to make you feel uplifted too. The song will be part of their self-titled EP, due out August 11th on Clue Records.
Need something to swelter in the sun to that has a bit of a bite to it? Strange Cages have the answer. Heavily hazy, bright and filthy simultaneously, The Cracks is their new EP and is out now.
To celebrate the release of their new single, Chain Of Flowers have posted a video for one of the songs, Let Your Light In. It and second A-side Flesh, Blood And Bone are available now digitally or on 7″ via ALTER.
It’s been the best part of three years since Single Mothers unleashed the incendiary treasure that is their debut album Negative Qualities. Following a mostly-changed line up for last year’s Meltdown EP, they return with a second record Our Pleasure, out now via (in the UK) Big Scary Monsters.
