Self-professed purveyors “sludgepop” and “grungegaze”, Terra Pines is an Australian trio comprised of Kelly Hanlon (guitar/vocals), Owen Dengate (guitar/vocals) and Cameron Smith (drums/vocals).

Playful genre descriptions aside, the Aussie outfit make powerful, fuzz-filled guitar tunes and just this month, have released their self-titled album. The album is fronted by rambunctious new single ‘Dream Big'; a perfect intro and one that will have you scooting straight over to the new album. An absolutely brilliant three minutes of fuzzed-up-noise, ‘Dream Big’ is tempered by her lilting vocals, while gritty guitars, heavy reverberating drums and rocking a crunchy, fuzz-heavy riff that rips through the track. For all the powerhouse pieces of post punk, shoegaze and grunge, there is a subtle seam of dreampop running through its core, eking out a near perfect space between sludge, fuzz and hazy pop.

Tune into ‘Dream Big’ below and if it is too your liking, why not check out Terra Pines’ debut record here.

Basement Revolver – ‘Baby’

Based in Hamilton, Ontario, Canadian trio Basement Revolver are gearing up for the release of their debut LP, Heavy Eyes.

Slated for release on August 24 through Sonic Unyon, Basement Revolver’s debut promises 12 tracks of 90’s infused indie-rock and using lead single ‘Baby’ as a gauge, the record looks rather encouraging to say the least. A power brand of 90’s inspired indie-rock laced with layers of dulcet reverb, ‘Baby’ makes for compelling listening. It is dripping in atmospherics and smouldering with sadness, dissatisfaction and heartfelt longing, owing much to Hurn’s mournful delivery of sorrowful lyrics. Despite the doleful air, ‘Baby’ never flounders, swelling with a resolute anthemic power, and Hurn’s soar, far above. As compelling an intro as you’re likely to get – magnificent!

Listen to ‘Baby’ below now and keep an eye out for their debut LP.

THYLA – ‘Blame’

Brighton foursome THYLA have steadily been building a rep for rousing indie-rock barnstormers and super new single ‘Blame’, thankfully does little to dispel this assertion.

Pairing biting pop hooks to soaring stellar indie rock riff, THYLA flit between grunge and dream-pop and charging forward with a thunderous bassline, ‘Blame’ packs quite a punch straight from the off. This thundering three-minutes is propelled onward on the back of crashing cymbals, energetic riffs and crisp guitar lines but Millie Duthie’s vocals – powerful, hard-hitting and self-aware – are equal to it all as they soar above; the icing on the cake. An all too alluring mix of power and precision, and the right amount of catchy hook.

Tune in now.

The Garrys – ‘Makeout at the Drive-in’

The Garrys are sisters trio from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada who conjure up surfy, garage-pop with a dash of doo-wop.

Their new single ‘Makeout at the Drive-In’ is a shimmering slice of surf pop, with a hazy evocative atmosphere and melancholic longing at the heart of The Garry’s reverb-laden opus. Framed by quivering guitar licks, twangs and hazy fuzz, it has a mysterious downbeat vibe that conspire to create a somewhat eerie sound. For all this laid-back, mellow and sleepy undulating wonder, the trio’s true power comes from the entwined, sublime surfy, vocal harmonies of the three singers; delightful, pristine and utterly irresistible. With a touch of wistful, youthful yearning, ‘Makeout at the Drive-in’ is a sparkling introduction to The Garrys’ sound.

The Garrys release their new single ‘Makeout at the Drive-In’ on May 13 through Grey Records.

The single is lifted from the trio’s latest album, Surf Manitou, which comes highly recommended also, especially if you like reverb-laden, harmonious surfy goodness. Listen to it here.
