01. Indoor Fins – Here It Goes
Genre: Indie rock, From: Australia, for fans of: DZ Deathrays, Arkells, Northeastern Party House
Here It Goes is the first single from Indoor Fins’s forthcoming debut EP Amber Arcade. Indoor Fins is the bedroom project by songwriter Timothy Nelson, who spent the last few months holed up in his home studio. The track combines 70s prog rock and french electro pop no less.
A few years back my old band, and my relationship at the time, both fell apart within about a month of each other. I was in a rut personally… I was questioning so much about who I was, that I think I started digging a lot deeper lyrically. These four songs are like little vignettes into where my head was at.
02. Bodi Bill – Better Than Reality (Bonus Life)
Genre: indie pop, from: Germany, for fans of: Bonaparte, I Heart Sharks, The Notwist
Berlin based Bodi Bill have only recently started releasing new music after a seven year hiatus. With their eclectic mix of techno, folk and indie, they have been a mainstay in the Berlin music scene for many years. Better Than Reality (Bonus Life) is the third single the trio have released this year.
03. One Nine – Lost Satellites
Glaswegian guitar pop duo One Nine have recently released their second single Lost Satellites. It follows on from the debut single Difficult Days which has already gained them a sold out hometown debut show. Neil Mulholland and Kirstin Lynn have only just begun; expect to hear more from One Nine soon.
04. Calvacade – Blueness is a Heavy Stone
Genre: Indie rock, from: UK, for fans of: Catfish and the Bottlemen, Life, Arctic Monkeys
With new single Blueness Is A Heavy Stone, East London four-piece Calvacade have released a song about the importance of mental health. A song with the clear message, that it’s OK to not be OK. Lead vocalist and song-writer Connor Duggan commented on the song:
As a group of young men, we felt as though it’s just as important to talk about our experiences while also giving this sense of optimism through both the lyrics and the musicality of the song.
05. Harry Mold – Python
Genre: Indie rock, from: UK, for fans of: Arctic Monkeys, Yungblud, Jamie T
Harry Mold is a 20 year old London-based multi-instrumentalist who self-produces all of his music. Python follows on from his debut single Drain which has already gained him a huge fanbase. Harry comments on his latest endeavour:
Python’ is a song I wrote for the ‘snakes’ that surround us. It was written as an immediate response to a close friend being sleazy behind my back. My raw and honest ‘f*** you’ to those types.
06. Callum Pitt – L.Lane
Genre: indie folk / singer-songwriter, From: UK, for fans of: The War On Drugs, Bon Iver, Fleet Foxes
Callum Pitt’s stunning falsetto vocals and folk-influenced riffs have already gained him massive support from the likes of BBC1 and BBC6. This summer, he appeared at The Great Escape, This Is Tomorrow and Deer Shed among others. His latest single L. Lane is an Americana inflected tune about being stuck in a rut.
L. Lane is primarily about waiting and feeling stuck. It revolves around a period in my life where my relationship had to be long distance, I wasn’t in an enjoyable job, and not much was happening musically. It explores the feelings of discontent, disconnect and resentment you feel towards the place you feel
stuck in and how easily time can be wasted by not being present mentally.
