5 NME Breakthrough Tracks You Have To Hear This Week

1. My Tiger My Timing – ‘This Is Not The Fire’



My Tiger My Timing are a five piece band from New Cross in south-east London formed in 2008. Their music was described by NME.com as “tribal electro like a south London Gang Gang Dance”.

Listen to the track and find out more about the band on their NME Breakthrough page.

2. The Car Is On Fire – ‘Cherry Cordial’

Contrary to what their bumf may suggest, The Car Is On Fire aren't really from outer space. They're from Poland. Though we suspect that their minds have been sufficiently fried with such inadvisable doses of Spacemen 3, Ariel Pink and 13th Floor Elevators that they have little left in common with us everyday humans anymore.

Listen to the track and find out more about the band on their NME Breakthrough page.

3. Bromheads – ‘Cinderella's’

Bromheads are a 50’s inspired garage band formed in Sheffield, UK in 2009. Formed by Tim Hampton,and Dan Potter from their previous 3 piece band Bromheads Jacket.

4. Static Jacks – ‘Woah Woah Woah’

Static Jacks are one of our favourite Breakthrough finds so far. Hailing from the same New Jersey lawns that birthed Titus Andronicus, they're one of these anglophile outfits that make better Brit-indie than most of our up-n-comers do. Think the typhoon energy of early Cribs with the heart-on-sleeve angst of early Get Up Kids.

5. The Blowbacks – ‘Ghettoblaster Baby’

Mysteriously this woozy four-piece refuse to reveal where they're from. But that doesn't stop their Malkmus-ruining-a-Husker-Du-practice shtick from getting heads a'nodding.

Listen to the track and find out more about the band on their NME Breakthrough page.
