Turn on the latest track Goes Around Comes Around and you will feel the good times party music burst through the room. Not aiming to create complex structures of sound Indigo Husk are adept at raising the spirit of the day with their easy to engage soundtrack that leaves the listener feeling better for having partaken.
The English alt-rock trio are due to imminently release the EP Train To Hunts Cross.
A couple of tracks have surfaced from the forthcoming release, both of glittering guitar striding broadly across the room and bass line blurring the sound while a drum-kit bounces joyfully through the room with a vocal that floats in and out of spotlight.
When contemplating the genre-descriptor the juxtapositions of progressive rock and low-fidelity came to mind – though when you hit play on The Protagonist you will completely understand how my thoughts were not completely misaligned.
Grazed is a band who I look forward to coming back to in due course as taking the opportunity to listen to their back catalogue which is four songs in total, discovers a trio of musicians with some intriguing ideas.
The Amber Bugs from England recently revealed a live performance acoustic-rock track.
The Amber Bugs
Normally to be heard as a plugged-in indie rock band in Relax, The Amber Bugs, allow themselves to showcase a more wistful side to their performance abilities. A band who first made contact last year that it has taken a while to get back to, though do aim to feature again in short order with their more driving brand of rock.
The English slewed-rockabilly trio Honkies release the AA side single Entitled to Nothing / Moving to Berlin on the 28th.
That moment when you have had a beer too many, but are still the life and soul of the party? Honkies express it superbly in the two track release (available on bandcamp) as the music winds back, to double-check, inside its own thought process with the audience swaying in good humour as the songs slur across the room.
Pub rock as it should be played – turn it up and join in with Moving To Berlin (Mono).
There is oft to be found in melancholia an intrinsic beauty and yet once again I am late to the draw in introducing Yesterday’s Soul by The Relights and I extend my apologies to one and all.
Grab a candle and a dusky space to watch the glow flickering across the room whilst engrossed in the symbiosis betwixt the undercurrent of low registers, acoustic fretwork and tear inducing vocal as The Relights deliver music that seeps deep in to the bone marrow with its understated resonance, which is made more spellbinding for its very bleakness.
