Lavoy – Smile

Lavoy

Lavoy

Crafting delightful indie pop for everyone’s ears is Alaskan band, Lavoy.

Not to let dark and desolate winters and freezing, long road trips get in the way of touring , these guys are determined to do what they love, smiling all the way.

Which brings us nicely onto their new single, ‘Smile’; a track “about finding something you thought you’d lost forever. It’s about that moment when you lock eyes with your best friend or loved one. You know you’re home and you can’t help but smile.”

Lavoy’s forthcoming three-song EP, produced by Casey Bates (MxPx, INXS, Portugal. The Man) will be released later this year.

Sounds like: Portugal, The Man

The 1975 – Somebody Else

The 1975

The 1975

“I don’t want your body, But I hate to think about you with somebody else” pines Matt Healy in ‘Somebody Else’.

The 1975 share the reflective video exposing the dark reality of a being replaced by another lover.

It’s not a cop out, but we think just sit back and watch the video, as it can explain the feelings associated with this, a lot better than we can.

Sounds like: INXS, Prince, Harts, The Japanese House, Kings.

The 1975 – Love Me

The 1975

The 1975

Our favourite guilty pleasures, The 1975, have cranked it up a notch with 80’s funk tune ‘Love Me’.

Remaining pretty illusive about their new releases, we are excited to finally watch the video for the new track.

From black and white into a tint of pink, this is definitely a satirical pop video with frontman Matt Healy speaking out about how he really feels on things.

Order tickets for their March tour here.

Sounds like: INXS, Prince, Harts
