Alternative Friday

helping to spread the word about impressive new & under the radar musicians

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.
