Whilst listening to the news on a daily basis can provoke high levels of pessimism, Leeds band Party Hardly have pretty much created an enjoyable way to deal with the gloom.

The Alex Greaves-produced ‘Living In Moths’ is out now. Touching on the track, Party Hardly mentioned: “Living In Moths’ is about how depressing the news can be sometimes Read more […]
Back in 2012, Dark Horses released their debut LP ‘Black Music’. Following-up with their sophomore album ‘Hail Lucid State’ two years later, the group have finally made their return with a new track entitled ‘XIII’. Euphoric with new wave synths, post punk guitars and ghostly vocals, the pulse-raising tune is the track that we’ve surely been expecting from the band. Out November 24th via Tricky Spirits Records, Dark Horses are expected to release a new album sometime in 2018. For now you can stream ‘XIII’ down below.
London’s Emma Topolski aka Saint Clair has unveiled her new single ‘Human Touch’, taken from her forthcoming EP ‘D2’, out in 2018. Written in response to the ending of a relationship, Topolski’s well-rounded approach to delivery shines as the alt-pop production serves as her playground.
Swiss-born, now Berlin-based singer and artist Evelinn Trouble continues to push through any boundaries of normality with her latest single ‘Sunset Everytime’. A woozy and hazy taste of alt-pop, the song is the closing of a chapter and the start of a new beginning, which was a manifestation in Trouble’s personal life. Swaying 50s guitar riffs coincide with light drumming as the song morphs into a haunting dreamlike state.
Placing Slothrust and Brittany Spears in the same sentence sounds about as crazy as calling Donald Trump sensible. However, whilst one wouldn’t immediately associate the Boston alternative band with a pop act like Spears, they have created quite the cover version of her hit single ‘Baby One More Time’. Completely restructuring the cut into a swinging alt rock hitter 10 times better than the original version in our opinion, the song is taken from Slothrust’s ‘Show Me How You Want It To Be’ EP of covers which also includes reworkings of Black Sabbath’s ‘Electric Funeral’ and Al Green’s ‘Let’s Stay Together’, just to name a few. Have a listen below.

Packed with a punch of post-punk with spiky pop melodies, ‘All Over’ is Desperate Journalist closing out their album run with a bang. Have a listen.

The LP was recorded with My Bloody Valentine engineer Guy Fixsen, as well as Jorge Elbreht of Ariel Pink and No Joy fame. One of the songs featured on the album is this freshly shared track entitled ‘Sunless Soul’. Whilst the content displays peeks of melancholy pertaining to loneliness, there is a contrasting element to the musical backing which bursts with hope. Have a listen.
