Pale Honey Return With New Single ‘Real Thing’, New album for 2017


Swedish duo Pale Honey – aka Tuva Lodmark and Nelly Daltrey – have been busily working away for a while now, crafting the follow-up to their 2015 self-titled debut.

​In the meantime the Gothenburg pair give us the first sneak peek at album number two – slated for release early next year – with brand new single ‘Real Thing’. It continues the blueprint that has served Pale Honey so well thus far; sparse but meaty riffs, crunchy guitars and drums combine with quick bursts of fuzz, interspersed with splashed of illuminating synth, which fizz and flare unexpectedly. Their scuzzy, sparse guitar-and-drums combo is tempered by Lodmark’s alluring vocals and cascading melodies – accidental beauty.

Their new, so far nameless record, is due out sometime in Spring 2017 via Bolero Recordings. For now, get on their new single ‘Real Thing’. Listen to it below and check out their Stranger Things inspired video.

Estrons – ‘I’m Not Your Girl’


Estrons will release a new EP She’s Here Now on November 4th, ahead of which, the Cardiff-based foursome have shared their scintillating new single ‘I’m Not Your Girl’.

Having already blown us away with blistering indie-rock brilliance ‘Make A Man’ and ‘Drop’, this latest outing is equally as exhilarating and underpins why we should all pay close attention. An under-three-minute burst of coiled up aggression delivered with a gripping, almost menacing intensity, ‘I’m Not Your Girl’ unloads a barrage of ear-shattering, scorching riffs and pounding drums, as Källström’s incredibly powerful, searing vocal delivery, brings the house down around us. A scintillating and high intensity master-class of cathartic, brilliantly rage-fuelled and fuzz-drenched rock ‘n roll.

The new EP She’s Here Now is out on November 4th, ahead of all that there is the not so small matter of ‘I’m Not Your Girl’. Check it out now.

Session Victim Release New EP; Listen to ‘Up To Rise’


Session Victim are currently putting the finishing touches to their third album, but while we await its release, we’re treated to some surprise new material from the Berlin/Hamburg duo.

The German pair have a new EP, Matching Half out this week, and from which we have ‘Up To Rise’. It is 7 minutes plus of deliciously vibrant, instrumental, disco-edged Balearic house. Sifting through a warm and fluffy haze of soft but lively drum rhythms, jazzy samples, Balearic vibes and undeniably danceable groove;  ‘Up To Rise’ makes for an incredible and irresistible, one track sure to engulf any dance floor in euphoria. This one will leave you in a sort of slo-mo state of blissful hypnosis and utterly content.

You can sample the superb ‘Up To Rise’ below, while you can get all the necessary details for Matching Half here.

R.Seiliog Announces New EP & Shares ‘Cloddio Unterdach’


R.Seiliog is the alias of North Walian off-kilter and imaginative musician/producer Robin Edwards, and is due to release his forthcoming EP Shedhead on 18th November.

The latest EP follows on from the sublime albums, Doppler (2013) and In Hz (2014), and is preceded by new single ‘Cloddio Unterdach’. Enveloping a trance like ambience, ‘Cloddio Unterdach’ is an immersive and hypnotic genre-bender, majestically blurring the lines between exhilarating electro and propulsive Krautrock. Lush, glistening and altogether frosted elegance, it is a futuristic, vividly imaginative and unique, shapeshifting sound. Yet again, R.Seiliog appears at the very top of his game; he is one of the the most enticing, intriguing and dynamic producers around.

R.Seiliog’s Shedhead EP will be out on 18th November via Turnstile Music. You can listen to ‘Cloddio Unterdach’ below, and you are in for a treat!

The Orange Kyte – ‘Elasticity’


Throughout 2016, Vancouver’s The Orange Kyte has been on an enviable quest to release a new single each month and if you’ve been keeping tabs on proceedings, then you’ve been treated to some fine music already.

Centred around Vancouver-based, Dublin-raised Stevie Moonboots and a revolving cast of friends and collaborators, The Orange Kyte continue with their impressive musical manifesto with superb new single ‘Elasticity’. ‘It swaggers and grooves its way through a swirling haze of psychedelic ambience, meandering pleasantly toward the midpoint before exploding into life as guitars growl, synths swell and a tambourine snaps, with Moonboots’ incredibly impressive vocals soaring high above. Elasticity’ pulses through the gears towards a triumphant climax, of what is an irrepressible sonic exploration of the psychedelic. It is yet another intoxicating release from The Orange Kyte, one can wonder if all these singles would make for a hell of an album, if all put together.

You can get your hands on ‘Elasticity’ here. Or, conversely, check it below, and its video; comprised of road trip footage from the band’s recent trek to Alberta for shows in Calgary and Edmonton.
