    17 by Sydney Raynee


    Soulful

    Whilst many might regard “17” as just another example of the urban soul genre, it is nonetheless abundantly obvious that Sydney Raynee has the voice of a soul songstress and her song consequently proves spiritually uplifting. She has class and that’s a fact.

    Breathe by Littermouth


    Robust

    I can’t say that rock music is my thing but Littermouth do seem to have more than adequately grasped the requirements of the genre with “Breathe” stretching out to well over seven minutes of masculine vocals, pounding drums and fiery guitars. It is, however, a song that grows on you.

    Company of Thieves by Georgie


    Talented

    “Company of Thieves” turns out to be the kind of pop song that people might actually want to buy with Georgie’s robust vocals adding both an offbeat charm and the structural strength to hold the whole thing together. I want to be in her band.

    The Sweetest Tune by Darling West


    Americana bound

    Wholesome, as all practitioners of Americana seem destined to be, Norway’s Darling West make a sonorous sound with their song “The Sweetest Tune” with only Mari Sandvær Kreken’s perfect diction hinting that this band is a product of somewhere other than the dustbowls of the good old US of A.

    Indifferent by Laughed The Boy


    Laconic

    Taking a rather laconic approach to the much loved, and usually upbeat, guitar pop format, Laughed The Boy stride purposely through their song “Indifferent” on their way to the Emerald City.

    Sniper by Selfoss


    Downbeat

    The downbeat vocals make “Sniper” something of a Monday morning song but Selfoss add enough eighties style meandering synths to keep your ears interested for the four minute plus running time.

    Just Let Go by Avakhan


    Commercial

    Murdered Out by Kim Gordon


    Solid

    Still knocking out songs that are more a soundtrack to unarmed combat than anything else, Kim Gordon lets “Murdered Out” cruise the dystopian urban environment in search of something shiny (like a knife?). She’s still got it and got it good.
