Cash + David

Cash + David

Our favourite quirky indietronica duo, Cash + David, return with the first track from their forthcoming EP ‘Side I’, which will be released on 15 April.

‘Alright Now’ is an ethereal psychedelic track, of which the pair explain;

“We’ve been waiting for a call from the mothership, getting ready to bring four different types of smoke, we got the call and this is the first… Alright Now”

Premiere: Bec – In The Fog, In The Flame

Bec by Sam Brumby

Bec by Sam Brumby

Bec (aka Bec Sandridge) is an emerging Glaswegian singer/songwriter, who is currently residing in Sydney.

Her new single, ‘In The Fog, In The Flame’, has been produced by Tony Buchen.

It starts off with gray bass lines and sultry vocals, instantly showcasing Bec’s Glaswegian roots. The track takes a turn shortly after commencement with a juxtaposing influx of uplifting and blazing synths. Two sounds that we wouldn’t normally match together…but it works.

Let’s hope we catch Bec supporting a band like The Maccabees very soon.

The single is released today.

Sounds like: The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Maccabees, London Grammar, Foals

Cash + David (aka Tim Ross + Liz Lawrence) return with a darker example of their work; simply called ‘X’.

The video features even more dancing from the duo, but this time it’s less glitz and glamour and more focus on the emotional simplicity of the track.

The Jezabels – Look of Love

The Jezabels

The Jezabels

Adoring dark clothing, you’d be fooled into thinking The Jezabels are an impure and gloomy band. They are not.

The Australian fourpiece may have taken more of an electronic approach with their second album, ‘The Brink’, but they still class themselves as ‘intensindie’.

‘Look of the Love’ is a heartfelt and emotional track, taken from the ‘Uptown Girl”s perspective. The track was recorded in London with producer Dan Grech-Marguerat.

Indietronica watched them perform last night and they were far from the cries of gothic urbania. With bright dressing room styled lights and a pink and blue lazered backdrop, it was as if the band had emerged straight from the boot of from Ryan Gosling’s car in Drive and landed on stage.

The Jacob Harper-directed video for ‘The Look of Love’ can be watched below:

‘The Brink’ is out now on iTunes.

Sounds like: The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Fenech-Soler, The Pretenders, The Naked and Famous

Cash + David – Funn



Cash+David are a British electronic duo.

Like many modern electronic artists, their influences include the Beastie Boys, M83 and The Knife. We are sure there are some Nine Inch Nails influences somewhere there too.

‘Funn’ is a simple but effective juxtaposition between garage rock beats and echoey synths.

The beautifully shot video for new single ‘Funn’ is geared around a dance battle between Johnny Cash & David Bowie lookalikes.

You can purchase the single on iTunes from 10 March.

Sounds like: M83, Sleigh Bells, BOY, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Nine Inch Nails, Death Rattle

Phantogram – Fall in Love


Indietronica duo Phantogram will release their album ‘Voices’ on February 18th, having unveiled the featuring track ‘Fall in Love’, which will is included as a free download on each preorder of the full length, and which you can listen to below.

‘Fall in Love’ is a powerful, heavy, track, with bass-driven pulsating sounds, and crunching synths reminiscent of Sleigh Bells. The drums are at times heading down a hip-hop route, all while Sarah Barthel’s vocals drive the melody, pulling the layered sounds together in this really cool track.

Phantogram have also just released the video for ‘Black Out Days’, directed by Evan Spencer Brace. The video is a montage of epic, lustrous and sometimes frightening visuals, with a striking use of colour and light.

Sounds like; Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Metric, Sleigh Bells, Charli XCX

Letters To Fiesta – Stay Young

Letters To Fiesta

Letters To Fiesta

Letters To Fiesta (LTF) are Manchester-based Daniel Houghton (drums), Andy Fletcher (bass), Tom Brydon (guitar), and Anna-Louisa Etherington (vocals & synth).

The band have spent a couple of years acquiring their sound although they have only had two online releases to date.

The current track on their agenda is ‘Stay Young’. Full of scaling and melodic howls from Etherington, coupled with landscaping synths; the track perfectly sums up the band’s ambitions.

The comedic video for the track takes clips from Spanish psychological horror ‘La Cabina’.

As well as providing us with a little bit of humour in our lives, LTF are thoughtful souls. Whilst catering to all genres, ranging from pop to industrial, they have also captured the heart of listeners through the conception of an innovative new funding method. Instead of asking for plain old cash for their music, they prefer gig goers pay for one of their EPs or other donated records with their old vinyl, that LTF then sell on at a pop-up merch stall.

Their debut EP ‘Aphorism’ includes influences from such artists as Depeche Mode, Yeasayer, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Bat for Lashes, as well as always ensuring that Kate Bush is there as a regular reference check, yet they still manage to maintain a genre-evasive sound, thanks to Etherington’s formidable and enigmatic vocals that really make you stop and notice the band.

Aphorism’ is out on 28th October 2013.

Their UK tour starts off on October 9th in Leeds and finishes on October 24 in London.

Sounds like: Kate Bush, Bat For Lashes, Yeasayer, Tegan and Sara, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Depeche Mode, Florence + The Machine, Broken Social Scene

Amason – Went To War



Pontus Winnberg (Miike Snow), Gustaf Ejstes (Dungen), Nils Törnqvist and Petter Winnberg (Little Majorette), and Amanda Hollingby Matsson (Idiot Wind) form supergruppen Amason.

Despite the Swedish background, the band are situated in L.A. and are turning out to be the best supergroup of 2013.

Super catchy tune, ‘Went to War’, features on their debut EP, which was released on 28 August 2013 on Stockholm-based label/artist collective INGRID.

The track continues with the 70s synth rock theme prominent throughout the EP and we especially like the soft beats layered underneath the female/male vocal interplay, similar to that of fellow Swedes Peter Bjorn and John.

Citing influences from Kraftwerk, think of the group as a indietronica version of The Carpenters.

Sounds like: Peter Bjorn and John, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Carpenters, Miike Snow
