    Vanity Fair by Romance & Rebellion


    Robust

    If there is such a thing as mainstream pop music on the radio these days, Romance & Rebellion’s song “Vanity Fair” would surely make the high rotation playlist with the aspirational commentary in the lyrics highlighting that this is a band with more than just good looks in their favour.

    Someone I Know by The Tweed


    Retro love

    Greg Pekk’s impassioned vocals lead “Someone I Know” through the field of heartbreak on the The Tweed’s journey into power pop land. It’s a retro thing to do but, as is often the case, there is value to found in doing things the old fashioned way.

    Cocktails and Dreams by Harry Young


    Promising

    Just when you thought you had heard the last of the sensitive singer songwriter, another one appears. Fortunately, youthful Scottish troubadour Harry Young stands out from the crowd by looking further than his own reflection for his lyrical inspiration and that makes his song “Cocktails and Dreams” both a rewarding listen and a more than adequate demonstration of his future promise.

    Night Tides by Hausfrau


    Shadows

    Bleak low-key synth pop is hardly a rarity these days but Glasgow’s Hausfrau successfully catches that vibe of urban despair thus making “Night Tides” one of those songs that effortlessly becomes a soundtrack to post-midnight rain and the yellow glow of sodium streetlamps.

    Hey Now by The Regrettes


    Raucous

    The Regrettes are another band from California that make you want to make the trip to the sunshine state. Raucous rock girls they might be but all the best things come out of garages and their guitar led song “Hey Now” is proof of that.

    Get It Right Now by The Tambo Rays


    Indie pop

    The Tambo Rays strike the right balance between bittersweet lyrics and upbeat indie pop with their song “Get It Right Now”. Retro synth sounds keep the anguish alive but It must be all that sunshine that they get in California that gives the song its undeniable warmth.

    Samurai Swords by Highasakite


    Smart

    Intelligent Scandinavian electro pop from Norway’s Highasakite with “Samurai Swords” displaying enough additional arthouse pretension to convince the better minds of the quality of this band and consequently turn Ingrid Helene Håvik into their new poster girl.

    Running My Heart To You by Amy Blaschke


    Classy

    Downbeat and with enough old school folk rock influences to make you wish you were listening to vinyl, “Under My Skin” highlights Amy Blaschke’s smoky laconicism. Life is, after all, about love and cigarettes.
