Some Summer Saturday Songs to Sing (and dance to).

The Kite String Tangle x Dustin Tebbutt - Here's the low down - Ahead of his return to the US, and fresh off the back of the 'Illuminate' release; a collaboration alongside fellow Australian artist Dustin Tebbutt, rising talent The Kite String Tangle has unveiled a new video for the title track. Having made his stateside debut at last year's CMJ Music Marathon, The Kite String Tangle will be playing a run of dates this July/August, including a show at New York's Mercury Lounge and Echo in LA. The Kite String Tangle, a.k.a. Danny Harley, has enjoyed a great run since the release of his breakthrough single ‘Given The Chance’. Striking, delicate electro-pop tunes including ‘Arcadia’, ‘Stone Cold’ and ‘What If’ followed; sold-out headline shows and some killer festival appearances confirmed his popularity, as did an ARIA nomination and a spot in the Top 20 of the 2013 & 2014 Hottest 100.

And here's the video, for all lovers of fine music and the desire to escape...

Soft Lions - What you need to know - "Every Soft Lions song is basically born in my diary", states Megan Liscomb, the shy, rainbow-haired singer/guitarist of the San Diego trio Soft Lions. Liscomb's songs evoke heartfelt memories, distilling in them a wide range of emotional states and colors. To make the music come to life she sought out Lex Pratt to help with vocal duties. Pratt replaces the traditional bass player with her percussive, psychedelic style on keys. Jon Bonser serves as the backbone on drums.

The band crafts songs that are a blur of decades, mixing the sound of 60's San Francisco pop with noisy garage-guitar driven tracks, lending the songs a definitive west coast vibe. Liscomb's songwriting is angular and interesting without losing any of the big sing-along melodies you want to hear. Soft Lions have cut their teeth like any new band should: by playing a bunch of local shows and sharing the stage with numerous national acts. They also made an appearance at this year's SXSW festival.

Caution all surviving original hippies, this video contains flashback inducing material (and it's superb!).

Monks Of Mellonwah - Keeping it simple - Australian rock group Monks of Mellonwah has just released a new lyric video for their single, 'Even When It Burns'. The band's new 7 track EP Disconnect is set to be released August, 2015. Formed in 2009 by school friends Vikram Kaushik, Joseph de la Hoyde, Joshua Baissari and John de la Hoyde, the band represents a collision of musical personalities, creating a fusion of alternative, indie, and film-inspired rock.

OK then Beehive Candy readers it's buckle up and sing along time, on the count of three.....

Jack + Eliza - Definitely on the 'ones to watch out for' list - We have two songs that may well delight you and make your day! "Quarter Past The Hour" is the latest track off their upcoming August 7th debut LP 'Gentle Warnings'.

Also enjoy their video for "White Satin". One is ideal for a gentle summer afternoon and one reminds us to enjoy these summer afternoons, oh you will work out which is which, both are an absolute joy to feature.
