Sad Palace – ‘Frostbeat’


South Coast of England quartet Sad Palace are gaining a reputable name for their brand of melodic and pristine indie-pop.

With a couple of singles already under their belt, the indie outfit have released ‘Frostbeat’; arguably their best offering yet. ‘Frostbeat’ is an aptly titled glimmer of melodic, indie-pop that glides dreamily through crystalline and glacial tones. Evolving beyond its moody origins, it builds slowly along a delicate yet buoyant piano line until the mellow, melodic and addicting pop swells and swaggers to the point whereby a scorching fuzzed-up riff is unleashed. Smashing into action, it grabs the song by the throat, and thrusting it toward a scintillating finale.

‘Frostbeat’ is out now via Kissability. Check it below:

Freedom Fry – ‘Strange Attraction’


For a long time now, we’ve been bestowing lavish and much warranted praise upon Freedom Fry – and why not?

Over the past few years, the LA based indie pop duo have become serial offenders when it comes to catchy, bright and lovable cuts of indie-pop. And in keeping with this very welcome tradition, Freedom Fry have repeated the trick with their latest single ‘Strange Attraction’. Unbelievably addictive, it sparkles with a buoyant disco vibe and shimmers with a sugary sweet goodness. The summery sheen, catchy hooks and  gorgeous and nimble  gorgeous boy/girl vocal interplay make it impossible to resist its allure and will, no doubt, plaster a smile on your face. A wonderful and utterly divine piece of guitar-pop which sits nicely alongside their previous singles.

Listen to ‘Strange Attraction’ below and if that is to your liking, and it will be, their new EP, Strange Attraction, is out now.

KA-TYA – ‘Beautiful Faces’

A happy-go-lucky breakup song imbued with joyfully irreverent quirkiness, ‘Beautiful Faces’ is ever so bright, bouncy and catchy while adorned with an unconventional melodicism and theatrical vocal styling. Aside from the unforgettable vocals and alluring array of artistry, the truly irresistible potency of ‘Beautiful Faces’ emanates from the bright guitar-jangle and bouncy drumbeats. You’ll will be hard pushed to uncover a finer, more soul-consuming piece of indie-pop this side of heaven.

James Wyatt Crosby – ‘Nobody Else’


James Wyatt Crosby continues to charm our ears with new single ‘Nobody Else’.

Having already treated us to the sanguine sounds of ‘Candy Floss’, the Toronto-based songwriter and multi-instrumentalist has delivered another pristine piece of stellar pop-craft – not to mention the splendid video. Warm, melodic and infectious indie-pop, it is sparkling with jovial warmth as it bobs along an irresistible wave of hypnotising breeziness that will be bopping around your head all day. Garnished with a delightful touch of brass, it leads to a sonic and unforgettable climax. The kaleidoscopic vintage video – shot by a deserted lighthouse on an uninhabited Georgian Bay island, Crosby’s brother, Stephen, using a 1960’s Bell and Howell 16mm camera with LomoChromo Purple film – is the perfect companion to the shimmering delight. Guitars set to shimmer – this is guitar-pop perfection!

James Wyatt Crosby releases his debut LP, Twins, today, Friday, September 15.
