Always the ones to make heart-wrenching pop songs for ‘Good Girls’, your favourite boy band LANY share a new video and release their debut, self-titled album.
The video for ‘Good Girls’ focuses on lead singer and songwriter Paul Klein’s hunt for his girl in a bittersweet manner, one that LANY are becoming all too well known for.
‘LANY’ is out now on Polydor Records.
Sounds like: Crozet, Pistol Shrimp, Brotherun, Goldroom, Scavenger Hunt, Still Corners, Paperwhite, Pawws, Sykes, Washed Out, New Navy, X Priest X, Roosevelt, Great Good Fine Ok, Lostboycrow, MOTHXR, X Ambassadors, Halsey, Tove Stryke, Twin Shadow, The 1975
We wrote about Idaho-based Apsley (aka Jacob Apsley) earlier this year and we’re excited to share his latest release, ‘Fear’.
The track has more of an demanding tone than Sold, reminding us of an early The 1975 with its muted guitar riffs and echoey, falsetto vocals.
Sounds like: Fenech-Soler, SOHN, Aquilo, The 1975, Friendly Fires, Delphic, The Chain Gang of 1974, The Naked and Famous, H A R T E B E E S T, Tourist, Bastille, Great Good Fine Ok, Hurts, X&Y, Young Empires
Much like a symbol of love itself, the song starts with gentle vocals and a light percussion, building into a stronger chorus and something more powerful.
Inspired by the setting of Romeo & Juliet, Lostboycrow says the track represents “the meeting place of desire, where any star that shines or sun that sets must only be for two. And the very obstacles ahead say there is everything to prove. Love is an adventure, running blindly in it’s youth.”
Wild Front are a four-piece from the South Coast. The South Coast of the UK that is, not the US. The boys almost had us fooled, with their California-tinged melancholy rock with uplifting electronic elements.
Listen to ‘Views’ below.
Sounds like: The Starting Line, The 1975, Temper Trap, Ten Fé, Foals
Nottingham based Amber Run are a four piece who like to whip up indie anthems.
As many bands will know, keeping this type of spontaneity can be tough, especially if you let the music industry exhaust you.
‘Fickle Game’ is about just that, and features on their upcoming album, ‘For A Moment I Was Lost’, which, you’ll be pleased to read, was written during an impromptu moment of creativity in Pembrokeshire.
