Alternative Friday

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

Four excellent but contrasting sounds make up New Tunes #21, so have a listen to find out which one is your favourite…

Tripwires – Shimmer
Lovers of a more mid-paced but joyously noisy alternative rock should lap this track up from Reading band Tripwires.

 

The Pebbles v Ben Landis – I Never Met No One Like You
This is a wonderfully quirky piece of synth pop from a pair of promising teenagers from Brighton.
[sorry – track removed from soundcloud]

 

The Luck – Muscles and Bones
Muscles & Bones perfectly highlights the sublime vocals and strong melodies from acoustic duo The Luck, and is the title track from their excellent new EP.

 

The Pocket Gods – Searching for the Divine
Priding themselves as the being the “second best band in their village” (after The Zombies), this track is a great example of the hypnotic style of psychedelic rock that The Pocket Gods perform.
