01. Tromsø Complex – Til You’re Gone
Genre: Indie rock, From: UK, for fans of: Empire of the Sun, Built to Spill, Tame Impala
Til You’re Gone is the debut single from British Rock band Tromsø Complex. The band describe the track as having ” shoegazy feel in the style” and indeed they’re not wrong. The track was recorded with producer Rasmus Bredvig from Tapetown studios in Denmark and is the first of many more to come from this promising new group.
02. Stand Up and Say No – Daily Reminders
Genre: post-punk, from: Canada, for fans of: Interpol, The Strokes, and The Killers
Stand Up and Say No are a Canadian post-punk band fronted by Andre Nault, the group’s primary songwriter. Their songs are written from Andre’s personal perspective inspired by current political events. New single Daily Reminders is a prime example of Stand Up and Say No’s ethos.
This is a song from a Canadian who can’t even vote in the US. My main point is saying that people are more important than dogma.
03. Famous – I Want To Crawl Inside Of You
Genre: Indie rock, from: UK, for fans of: LCD Soundsystem, Arcade Fire, Hot Chip
I Want To Crawl Inside Of You is actually one of Famous’ oldest songs and dates back to 2016. The newly released single deals with the boredom and anger of urban youth and adolescence. Instrumentally, the song is a full blown dance track set against singer Jack Merrett’s angsty vocals singing “On some of these days you’ll miss me honey”.
04. Of Gentlemen & Cowards – Don’t Say
Genre: Indie rock, from: Canada, for fans of: Young the Giant, Arkells, Tokyo Police Club
Formed in 2010, Toronto indie rockers Of Gentlemen & Cowards are mainstays in the Canadian music scene. Their upbeat new single Don’t Say was produced by John-Angus MacDonald (The Trews) and mixed by Gus van Go (Arkells, Sam Roberts). The band comment on the song:
“Don’t Say” is a song about endings. Between being stuck and leaving, there’s always a choice – this song was created in that space. It’s a pleading refrain from a strained relationship. Maybe we can get past this, or maybe it’s over.
05. Family of Things – On and On
Genre: indie pop, From: Canada, for fans of: Holy Ghost!, Friendly Fires, Fenech-SOler
Family of Things is a Hamilton-based duo consisting of Bradley Barnham and Aaron Brown. Having released their debut EP in 2016, the two piece are currently working on their debut album. New single On And On is an upbeat and synths laden song about the desire to move on from a relationship.
