Fickle Friends – Cry Baby

One of Brighton’s best exports of late, Fickle Friends, are back with new single, ‘Cry Baby’.

Channeling some classic rockabilly ‘Cry Baby’ vibes, the track was recorded in Los Angeles with Mike Crossey (Wolf Alice, The 1975, Foals).

It will be released via B3SCI Records (Jungle, Elohim, Skott) in the US and Polydor in the UK.

Fickle Friends – Say No More

Fickle Friends - Say No More

Fickle Friends – Say No More

It’s increasingly tough for an artist to distinguish themselves in the music industry, but Fickle Friends have done just that. Every track by Fickle Friends is instantly recognisable, yet they stand out from the crowd.

The Brighton five-piece have released a simple, but stylish video for ‘Say No More’.

It’s a beautifully crafted pop track. Need we say anymore?

Pistol Shrimp – Between Us

Pistol Shrimp

Pistol Shrimp

Pistol Shrimp is back with the video for the strongest track yet. It’s hard to believe a video of this standard was directed by 17 year old Jake Matos.

The beautifully shot video by the 17 year old is about being young, free, having fun and doing what you love. It follows two boys and two girls on their separate dream adventures.

The track has an electro-synth backing with layered vocals sprinkled on top, and includes those dreamy hooks that Pistol Shrimp are renowned for.

Sounds like: Passion Pit, Smallpools, Lighthouse & The Whaler, Holy Ghost!, St. Lucia, M83, LANY, Magic Man, Cannons, Imperial Mammoth, Sir Sly, PROM

Oh Wonder - The Rain

Oh Wonder – The Rain

Oh Wonder is a writing duo from London. They are releasing one song at the start of every month, culminating in their debut album in September 2015.

We sum up their sound as monochrome with a hint of sparkle.

The fifth track on the agenda is ‘The Rain’. Less spine tingling than former track ‘All We Do’, ‘The Rain’ offers up silky smooth soulful harmonies over minimal beats, and completes with a brass interlude.

Sounds like: IYES, Kid Astray, Banks, Fickle Friends, Monogem, Paperwhite, PROM, Blood Orange, Years & Years, Bipolar Sunshine, Broods, ASTR

The generous duo is offering a free download of the track on their Facebook page, along with the free download of the insanely good debut ‘Hearts EP’.
