Satellite Stories – Heartbeat
Scandinavian four piece Satellite Stories are set to release their second single ‘Heartbeat’ off the forthcoming album ‘Vagabonds’, which was recorded in the Kentish countryside with producer Simon “Barny” Barnicott (Arctic Monkeys, Temper Trap, Kasabian and Bombay Bicycle Club).
The indie boys have been touring relentlessly since their breakthrough and this was the inspiration for the tracks on their album.

The Ugly Club
Apart from the obviously brilliant name, these guys have a pretty cool sound too.
The Ugly Club is a foursome that resides in Brooklyn, NYC.
The Ugly Club’s new track ‘Passengers’ is about escaping. Proceedings commence with steady synths (and the synths are key to the track’s European vibe), but this doesn’t last long as Ryan Egan’s rocky vocals gives the track some wings in prepartaion for the punchy guitar riffs that take over its passengers about half way through.
This is a seriously catchy tune. Give it a listen below.
Sounds like: The Midnight Hollow, Two Door Cinema Club, Phoenix, Chromeo, The Levity, Future Islands, GUSH, Labrinth

The Levity is a garage pop band from Plymouth whom we have just stumbled upon.
We sum the foursome up as having clever lyrics combined with smooth tropical vibes, reminiscent of the 80’s.
Check out the video for ‘Levity’. It is not quite as glamorous as Duran Duran‘s ‘Rio’, but is still just as sexy.
The Levity is playing at Notting Hill Arts Club on 19 November, alongside Nina, Owlle with a DJ set by July Child. Buy tickets here.
Sounds like: Cub Sport, Tina Turner, Thompson Twins, Brandon Flowers, Chromeo, Lionel Richie
