Sea Girls – Call Me Out

Sea Girls

Sea Girls are a four-piece from London who have been writing vibrant music since 2015.

The guys have just released their “best pop song” titled ‘Call Me Out’, which has distinctive seaside vibes (Brighton bands The Maccabees and The Kooks immediately spring to mind).

‘Call Me Out’ is the lead track from their debut EP, out now on Sea Girls’ own label Almanac Recordings.

Be sure to catch them at their London headline EP Launch gig on 8 June at The Islington in London.

Minke – Gold Angel

Minke - Gold Angel

Minke is a London based artist who creates a unique cocktail of alt-rock/R&B.

Her new single, ‘Gold Angel’, aims to push against and raise awareness about the social constraints of women, but just as we get started about feminist issues, Minke’s funky guitar riffs kick in and quickly remind us that at the end of the day, it should be about the music and not about anything else.

It has been produced by Rory Andrew and co-written by Paul Garred (The Kooks).

Sounds like: Lianne La Havas, Jessie Ware, London Grammar, Evvy

A grungier Mystery Jets, the Brighton based band like to expose pretty music with raw lyrics about heartbreak, sex and addiction.

Don’t expect an electro pop manifesto to be found here.

Their EP is out now via Century City Records.

Sounds like: Mystery Jets, Blossoms, The Kooks, Ten Fé,

The Lapelles

The Lapelles

We’ve just been transported back to the early noughties with this new video for ‘Grab Life By’ by The Lapelles.

It’s very early years for the Glaswegians in respect of their music and their ages (they are only 19 years old), but the foursome are set to support The Last Shadow Puppets on tour, and we do know that they have something very special.

We can’t wait to hear some more.

Sounds like: The Strokes, The Libertines, The Last Shadow Puppets, The Kooks, The Vaccines, Palma Violets

The Wombats – Be Your Shadow

Liverpool trio, The Wombats have unveiled their new music video for ‘Be Your Shadows’.

The video, which was directed by James Moore (Coldplay, The Strokes, Catfish and the Bottleman), is fitting to its song title; it features an inspiring and lanky-looking wrestler training for a big fight against his wrestling idol, twice his size.
