State lights are an Irish band destined for big things.
Their latest single ‘Don’t Make Plays on My Heart’ grabs our attention from the outset, hitting hard with some solid drums, before laying down a luscious and quite frankly filthy bassline, reminiscent of the early works of Walk the Moon.
The song continues to impress throughout its 3:36 timestamp, with catchy vocal hooks and a gorgeous guitar solo like riff through the chorus. If you need some indie-pop with a rock edge, then this is for you.
At the forefront of the neo-jazz revolution is Brighton-based fourpiece Yakul.
Echoes of Stevie Wonder courtesy of frontman James’ indulgent vocals, the unexpectedly cohesive new single ‘Blossoming’ offers playful percussion and razor-sharp fills to create a complex yet vibrant song.
Brighton-based band Will & The People is comprised of Will Rendle, brother Jamie, Jim Ralphs and Charlie Harman.
The new single ‘Gigantic’ is an alt-pop number offering a raw seaside vibe. The video – which you can watch below – showcases their creative side, and features both their hometown and friends and family of the band.
