Alternative Friday

because great new music doesn’t always get the exposure it deserves

Here’s another set of great new tracks, which range from traditional indie to gospel ska! As always, I’ve tried to pick a fairly eclectic mix, but which is your favourite?

The Vex – Martyr
This is the recent debut single from London band The Vex, and is an excellent two minute blast of raucous indie.

The Cut Throat Razors – Freedom
You may hear other influences, but I can only describe this track from Glasgow 10-piece The Cut Throat Razors as a great piece of ‘gospel ska’.

A La Punk – Fuzzy
Fuzzy may be the title, but it’s also a very apt way to describe this enjoyable lo-fi track from London band A La Punk.

Laced – Jade Vine
This is a great debut single from 5-piece Birmingham band Laced, while its strong sound makes me think of those 90s indie icons such as Oasis, The Stone Roses, and The Charlatans.
