Annabel Allum - Shadowlark

We are unashamedly fans of the music that Annabel Allum consistently creates and 'Alter To Alter' just reinforces that. This time we have a powerful alt rocker that is packed with genuine emotion and supported by a fabulous musical arrangement. Leeds (England) three piece Shadowlark have shared their new single 'Bleed My Heart' where synths glide within an indie pop / rock style and the  atmospheric vocals develop into a dreamy chorus.  ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Annabel Allum - Alter To Alter. Slacker-pop sensation Annabel Allum’s startling development continues to gather pace with the arrival of rousing new single Altar to Alter, taken from new EP Gravel Not The Grave, set for release 13th September via cult London label Killing Moon. Swapping shows at local pubs in her hometown six nights a week for acclaimed performances around the world, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to ignore the

North America - Seazoo - Llovers - The Achievers - The Jensens

North America have just released 'My Baby's No One's Girl' a melodic and earnest indie rock song that is lush and just so natural. Seazoo share 'Throw It Up' a feisty indie pop / rock song with a message and bags of hooks along the way. We featured 'Coming Loose from Llovers back in May and they return with 'Honestly' which is another gorgeous indie rocker. The Achievers new song 'No One Remembers' is a refreshing  and refined roots and blues rock piece with notably fine musicianship, vocals and harmonies.  From Australia we have The Jensens and their brand new album 'Hyacinth Haze' where these genre spanning musicians have created a splendid and varied collection of songs, and really are worth our full attention. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ North America - My Baby's No One's Girl. East London quintet North America return with their latest offe

Wooden Arms - BATS - Laughed The Boy

Wooden Arms latest single 'Pillar Of Salt' was released on Monday. We have to go back to September 2017 for our previous feature of the band, however this is a gorgeous song and reminded me of just how they impressed us back then with their genre spanning music. 'Old Hitler' from Dublin band BATS heralds their first new album in seven years entitled 'Alter Nature'. The song is a potent and powerful rocker that exudes excitement and drama, the vocals are embedded deep in the mix and surface with atmosphere along the way, this really is imaginative and solid rock. Just a month on since we shared 'Sun from Laughed The Boy we now have the pleasure of featuring the whole album from which that track was taken namely 'Change Of Scenery.' Their catchy indie rock is just so likable, it's fresh, creative and unpretentious with just a little edge to some songs to keep it intriguing.  -------------------------------------------------------------------

Codewalkers - The Blue Highways

Codewalkers brand new single 'Roadman' sees the bands eclectic mixture of rap, rock and reggae working beautifully, there is an instant hit of vital energy and a groove that is fabulously hypnotic. The Blue Highways have released a video for 'He Worked' ahead of their debut E.P due out on the 23rd August. Already gaining recognition within the Americana community it has to be said that this song is a right little rocker that fires off hooks in all directions. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Codewalkers - Roadman.

The Wedding Present - Louise Lemón - Sis - Justin Peter Kinkel-Schuster

The Wedding Present have shared a taste of the re-recording of their 1989 album 'Tommy' with 'Go Out And Get 'Em, Boy! Titled 'Tommy 30' the re-work of this early compilation material feels like an upgrade, the experience, maturity and warmth adds so much more, as does the overall production. This is not a nostalgia trip, rather a recognition that The Wedding Present circa 2019 can reinterpret older songs and breathe new and relevant life into them and boy do they achieve that. Louise Lemón has released a new single comprised of 'Almond Milk' and the B side an acoustic version of 'Not Enough'. Our fourth feature for Louise, her previously described death gospel has moved more towards psych rock without losing any of the atmosphere or originality that has consistently set her apart from her peers. We have a new lyric video from Sis and the song 'Moon at the Peak' a gentle dreamy piece taken from their 'Gas Station Roses' albu

Bridal Party - Suggested Friends - Harry Heart

Bridal Party return just a couple of months after we first featured them, this time with 'Speak Easy' just ahead of their debut album release. Once again the bands art pop is beautifully melodic and imaginative, the albums looking good. Indie rock band Suggested Friends share a music video for 'Cygnets' a deliciously melodic rocker and a slightly paranoid video. Just a month after his first UK single 'Montaigne' Harry Heart is back with 'Work It Out'. Once again his vocals really impress, the alt rock arrangement adds further originality, the forthcoming Hands in the Hive EP, is out 6th September. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Bridal Party - Speak Easy.
