For the last weekend of May, we have some great new songs for your earholes – check out the mini-reviews, and give these tracks a listen!
The Satellite Station – “For The Coast”
We’re kicking off this week’s list with a lovely tune from The Satellite Station, AKA singer songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Travis Rue. “For The Coast” is about starting over, and the song manages to evoke wistful yet hopeful feelings.
The Effens – “Venom Denim”
A gritty, grungy new single from The Effens has me diggin’ the 90s alt rock sounds they’re bringing to the table. Give it a listen, then go check out our recent chat with the band.
The Demos – “Private Eye”
The new single from US band The Demos is an instantly likeable track that has a similar sound to The Strokes, but with more of an indie pop spin. It’s boppy and light, and hard not to move to. So go ahead – dance like no one’s watching.
The Very Reverend – “HOLYGHOST”
Here’s a gothic alt track from The Very Reverend – “HOLYGHOST” is a very cool song with an impactful chorus. According to artist, “this nocturnal track calls out the fake version of ourselves we often create for others, and urges all us “imperfect creatures” to be true to who we are.”
Generous Gods – “Spilling My Blood”
The latest track from Generous Gods is “a hallucinatory, hook-laden musical vision for the new counter culture” Catchy and cool, this one got stuck in my head, in a very good way.
Lauren Anderson ft Mike Zito – “Back to Chicago”
Killer vocals. Great guitar riffs. An overall fantastic bluesy song. Check out “Back To Chicago” by Lauren Anderson, featuring award-winning guitarist Mike Zito.
Matt McCarthy – “Come and Go”
I definitely hear an Interpol influence in the latest track from UK artist, Matt McCarthy. This is some great indie rock, with a twist of sultry post punk. Love his vocals on this one.
Head In A Box – “It’s Ending”
A cool unique sound to this latest track from Ontario-based artist Head in a Box. “It’s Ending” is a genre-bending track with so many different layers, you really need to listen multiple times to unpack them all and get a solid feel for this great song.
