Alternative Friday

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

The five outstanding tracks in this latest New Tunes cover numerous genres. I love them all, but which is your favourite?

Two Weeks Running – Bullet Train
From their new EP, Human Nature, this track from Bolton 5-piece Two Weeks Running is fast, furious, highly addictive, and with a chorus that should have you hooked from the first listen. Impressive!

Geraint Rhys – Progression
This is the fourth self released track from Geraint Rhys, a bi-lingual singer songwriter from Wales. He describes the song itself as “written about neglect in society and how we no longer care for the things that once gave us relevance”, and so while the lyrics may therefore be downbeat, the music is definitely the opposite, as it’s a wonderfully catchy mix of guitar led folk & pop.

Crash Island – Time To Move On
From their new Stormy Nights EP, lovers of energetic indie rock should enjoy Time To Move On by Crash Island, a four-piece band based in Stoke Newington, London, however the band members hail from Spain, France and South Africa. That international mix of backgrounds certainly helps to add an eclectic range of sounds to their music, so it has more of a tropical rather than traditional indie rock sound.

Lost Winter – Coming Home
From their recent Autumn EP, Coming Home is a heart warming synth pop song, which again highlights the gorgeous vocals of Charlotte Francis, and the polished production that characterise all their EPs. You can find out more about them from the Q & A they did with us in July.

Rival State – Aces
Originally from New Zealand, but currently based in London, Rival State play their rock just as it should be heard… loudly! I managed to see them recently, so I can also add that they’re quite brilliant live too. Turn it up!
