Hadda Be Share Mercurial Single

Last year, Hadda Be released their excellent Another Life LP, a record that was filled equally with pop and rock hooks. But, having roots in the post-punk arena, the band seem ready to flex that muscle again with their latest single. There’s certainly an angular notion that comes from the guitar, stabbing at the speakers, setting up the song for this openness that allows for the vocals to sweep into the picture. What I love here is the band tight-roping that walk between various genres, sharp in some spots, dreamy in others, ultimately leading you to a chorus that serves as your reward. Once it hits, you can feel the bravado in the voice, operating with this sense of cool that’s coated in melody. Enjoy a new ditty here!

Paul Cook and the Chronicles Shares New Single

Paul Cook and the Chronicles have popped up over here on ATH throughout the years, with the band steadily churning out incredible pop songs. Friday, the band dropped a brand new single, leaving us with this crisp bit of churning guitars that scream with melody. Cook’s voice is always a charmer, able to stretch into different tones, but the highlight of this song came via the track’s closing moments; it’s a sharp little jam that would likely have fans of acts like War on Drugs salivating at the musicianship, which seems like plenty of reason to get behind the band. Keep an eye out, as the band continue to crank out hit after hit!

Slaney Bay Drop New Single LS6

We’re gearing up for Levitation tomorrow of course, but that doesn’t mean we’ve stopped listening to new tunes to share with our many, many fans. If you’re looking for something bright, yet a little hazy, with tons of emotional force, look no further than this new single “LS6” from London based upstarts Slaney Bay. I really love the almost POBPAH influence here with distinct juxtapositions between the slower moments and the more energetic and bass driven crescendos. It’s certainly worth your time.

Slaney Bay will release this singe as part of their debut EP entitled A Life Worth Living on November 11th.

 

Another Banger From Jaws The Shark

London based artist Olly Bailey has really been delivering some solid, rocking jams recently under his recording moniker Jaws the Shark. Today his new single called “Reno” is yet another real example of a true knack for crafting some catchy, raucous, and energy packed rock tunes. Take some time to give it a listen, you won’t be disappointed.

Jaws the Shark will be releasing this track as part of a self-titled EP due out on November 25th via So Recordings.

 

Shake Chain Share Internet Single

London’s Shnake Chain are getting a lot of buzz overseas, not that we’d necessarily catch all that over here. Luckily, we keep an eye out on Upset the Rhythm, so this tune felt like the perfect wake-up call for you. Musically, the song snakes its way between dangerous punk notes and pulsating bounce, allowing the notes to playfully move all around a crowd of listeners. Musically it’s right in my wheelhouse, but taking it to the next level is Kate Mahony’s performance, wiggling and gyrating through a vocal performance that almost feels like it’s coming to you live; you can feel the sinister energy, and in that, you’re sucked into the band’s sound and performance. Sounds like an angrier Duchess Says to me. Shake Chain release their self-titled LP on November 18th via Upset the Rhythm.

Another Jam From Automan

Back in May we were treated to a remarkable introduction to London based group Automan with the release of their single “Are You Happy Without Me”. After impressing us at the start of summer, the dudes are again leaving an impression on us with this new track called “Dreamland”. In the end, it’s a really simple sort of indie rock song with a subtle pop inspiration, but often the simplest tracks can result in some of the most memorable tunes. As a three piece the band somehow sound completely fleshed out and full of smooth drum beats, slick bass, and bright guitar solos. Nice finish to the day.

 

Straight Rocker From Jaws The Shark

Jaws the Shark is the somewhat ironic musical moniker of London based musician Olly Bailey. He’s been busy since starting the new project in 2020 with tons of singles and an EP entitled Another Day in Paradise coming out last year. For me, Bailey makes a brand of hook laden, riff heavy rock n roll clearly inspired by the late 90s with Oasis vibes mixed with more modern rockers like Wavves or White Reaper. His new track released today, “Destroy the World”, features guest work from Dinosaur Pile-Up and is a perfect example of this straight rock n roll with modern touches style. This one is out today via all platforms from So Recordings.

Wildes Share Far & Wide

WILDES is the London based project of the up and coming singer/songwriter Ella Walker. As a part of this whole music blog game, I am hoping to spread the word on her mesmerizing new single and video called “Far and Wide”. Walker often reminds me of artists like Van Etten with her raspy vocals and driving sound, but I love the little touches of atmospheric pop and melodies to really make this one stand out. Check it out below.

WILDES will release this song as part of a new album entitled Other Words Fail Me due out on October 7th via AWAL.

Sorry Share Let The Lights On

Right around two years ago, London based risers Sorry released what was, in my humble opinion, one of the best debut albums to come out in quite some time. After the debut 925, we’ve been treated to another EP and a few singles, but not a full length, proper follow up album. Today I am pleased to share this new single/video “Let the Lights On” with the accompanying news that the band will officially be releasing their sophomore LP entitled Anywhere But Here on October 7th via Domino. The track still has that slight hint of darkness and gothwave, but with these lovely new hints of a poppy vibe to create one of Sorry’s most memorably and catchy songs to date. This new collection of tunes will likely be in contention for all my year end lists come December.

Adults Sign to Fika Recordings, Drop New Single

Man, Fika Recordings sure knows how to pick them! They’ve just picked up Adults, and with that announcement, dropped this joyous rock from the group that’s going to blast through your speakers for the rest of the day. There’s an ample buoyancy from the vocal work, and the guitars are crunchy, though I like how they’re a bit tempered here; think of Martha having to play at your local library…hooks, but just a little more subdued. There’s just something about this song that radiates joy, and it looks like they’ve got a record planned for the Autumn sometime, so let’s rejoice that there’s more tasty treats on the way!
