Alternative Friday

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

Happy New Year, and welcome to the first selection of Emerging artists for 2015, which has tracks ranging from the nice & noisy to the soft & mellow. I love ’em all, but which ones will you fall for?

Pretty Vicious – Cave Song
Pretty Vicious are an unsigned teenage indie rock band who formed last year in Merthyr Tydfil, South Wales, while Cave Song is a superb two minutes and fifteen seconds of energetic garage influenced rock. Play it loud!

Moth Effect – Look Nicely
If you love your psychedelic rock mixed with electronica and a dark hypnotic beat, then this instrumental from Moth Effect, aka Andy Le Gresley from Sussex, will surely be to your taste. It’s taken from the upcoming debut album Crocodilians, which I can assure you is rammed full of equally excellent tunes. Keep ’em peeled.

Nick Liam – Cocoon
The soundcloud track is modestly titled as a demo, but this intimate piano led song from London based singer-songwriter Nick Liam is anything but a raw demo, as the warm vocals, melodic instrumentation, and clean production are quite outstanding. More demos please!

Polar States – Concrete
Coming from Liverpool, Polar States are making some wonderfully catchy indie pop, of which debut single Concrete is a perfect example of this. They haven’t sat around congratulating themselves either, as they quickly followed it up with a new double A-sided release, which you can hear via the links below.
