Following the success of their debut album release – sibling trio Saint Nomad has returned with ‘Nothing to Lose’.
The US-based ‘Band of Brothers’ describes their music as “a celebration of living life in light of the fact that nothing lasts forever” and that’s exactly the vibe that comes out of this latest record.
Lyrically, the record discusses the idea of setting a plan in motion and finding a purpose to one’s existence, whilst sonically, the track builds beautifully, beginning with subtle soft layers of vocals and a gorgeous guitar tone, slowly bringing in other instruments in the intro faux chorus.
As we continue on the 2:44 journey with ‘Nothing to Lose,’ we are treated to new elements with each section, adding complex layers of guitar, new backing vocals all culminating with a Mew like girthy rock guitar filling out the final anthemic chorus.
Having been on the road for the majority of their musical lives, you can expect to see a great show from Saint Nomad when the global pandemic comes to its end.
Sounds like: Mew, Nick Mulvey, Handsome Ghost, flor, Lo Moon, Low Island
Swedish duo I AM KARATE (aka producer and songwriters, Marta Pettersson and Erika Ahlström) shares new single, ‘Hey Love’.
Speaking about insecurity, the girls explain,
“The song is about insecurity and not feeling sure you’re being honest with your love. Like he’s got a secret world when he’s dreaming that you’re not a part of, and you wonder if it’s more than just dreams.”
Sounds like: Ralph, Say Lou Lou, MIYNT, Doe Paoro, Sirena, Susanne Sundfør, Shura, Kyla La Grange
Nottingham-born singer/songwriter/producer/multi-instrumentalist Ronika is back and sounding distinctively disco-noir.
Continuing Ronika’s inclination for all things funk and dream pop, the track features spoken-word contribution from Lee-Ann Curren (a French female pro-surfer and fellow musician) whilst also forming part of Ronika’s latest longer-form project.
Sounds like: ABBA, Chaka Khan, Aeroplane, Breakbot, Ballet School, Ladyhawke, Color War, The Human League, Little Boots, Bananarama, Annie
Bristol-born pop three-piece KOKO have a natural wall of energy which they call the “KOKO traingle”.
They’ve just dropped the acoustic version of their debut single, ‘Freak’. Stripping back the electro-tinged original of their debut singl, it’s all about embracing individuality – “It’s a FU to the man!”
