    Twinkle by Christine Leaky


    Offbeat

    Then along comes a song that seems to epitomise all that is offbeat in the big bad world of music. “Twinkle” is a strange song indeed veering between folky psychedelia and a show tune with Christine Leaky’s voice leading the assembled musicians on a journey to the carnival. It’s love but dangerous.

    Daphne by Grandmother Corn


    Honest

    “Daphne” is an honest slice of ear friendly blues rock that sounds like it was made in 1974. Time has moved on, of course, but Finnish band Grandmother Corn handle things with a style that belies their youth.

    Attack by Officers


    Vigorous

    An impressively manic slice of synth pop, “Attack” demonstrates that Officers can kick their way out of the dance floor and dominate the street. This is the kind of song that makes you want to smoke cigarettes, seek the company of women of low moral character and exceed every speed limit that has been set for your safety. This song is dead end and doesn’t care. Glorious!

    Sweat and Sulphur by Fizzy Blood


    Energetic

    Clearly willing to inject their indie rock inclinations with the wonder drug that is was and will always be surf guitar, Fizzy Blood take their song “Sweat and Sulphur” all the way from the street to the stadium. Anthemic!

    Things Get Better by Joe Symes & The Loving Kind


    Straightdown the line

    Endearingly melodic, Joe Symes & the Loving Kind have an honest song in “Things Get Better”. The influences of the past drive the song onwards and, barring the lacklustre guitar solo, it will make your ears happy.

    1954 by Michaela May


    Streetwise

    When you are entering the mainstream you have to be tough in all that you do and Canada’s Michaela May takes such a robust approach to her song “1954” that she very nearly obscures the sharper than you might expect lyrics. Her song may well be made of plastic but her heart and mind are clearly not.

    Paradise by Animalia


    To the max

    Stripped of everything other than intensity, Animalia turns up the emotion and angst and takes her song “Paradise” off for a walk betwixt the twilight zone and sunrise. There’s art in her madness and that, dear friends, surely is the point.

    Lights On by Lew


    Intense

    More downbeat electro pop from Scandinavia with Lew – aka Sara Lewis – roughing up the sequenced beats with edgy electric guitars and her intense vocals. It might well be cold outside but there is heat in her music.
