This week's New Act Of The Week are Pretty Vicious (pictured above), who last month were at the centre of the biggest record label scrum in ages.
Ever since Wand’s track ‘Flying Golem’ pretty much knocked me over last year I’ve been keeping an eye on the Los Angeles four piece.
Magical London band Black Gold Buffalo - Keziah Stilwell, Hannah Holland and Joy Josephs - have a new track out and it's a a summery slice of calypso joy. Just the ticket for a rainy February day. You can hear it exclusively below. The single's released on March 24 with two remixes from Dan Beaumont and Lauren Flax.
'Kingdom Of The Beasts' is the first cut off a new EP from Peckham-based songwriter Tony Volker. It's a beguiling kick-off track that showcases Volker's creative elan: sampling acoustic instruments and his own warm, haunting vocals to create something both very human and experimental. "I've learned to bare my teeth," he sings while expressing ideas around independence and survival amid sonic pulses and phases that augment each lyric.
“Forget everything you thought you knew about Denmark's music scene.” I started my review of Yung’s ‘Alter’ EP by saying that last week, and I still stand by it now. While I’ve got nothing against Iceage, Lower, Lust For Youth et al, it feels like many of Copenhagen’s best acts have taken things as far as they can.
