Establishing themselves on the live circuit, occasionally music surfaces for those of us who haven’t seem them live to wrap out ears around, the latest being, BRENDA.

Lasting exactly two minutes – BRENDA scoots around the room like a clockwork toy as the trio deliver a song which will have you clapping along before the half-way mark as Venture Lows are a set of players who are able to start a party flowing and unsurprisingly have supported as the opening act for numerous tours and it can only be a matter of time before they are headlining their own.

Idolising Nova – This Ain’t A Dream – Single Review

Idolising Nova is an indie trio from England.

Idolising Nova

Idolising Nova

Their latest single is This Ain’t A Dream, a track which weaves through the speakers with merging synths and guitar, setting out the stall for the approaching four minute piece, prior to a bass drum-pad combination developing the loping measure, which is the focus of attention, with the synthesised vocal developing the theme of the number.

Idolising Nova are not seeking to start a revolution, however are able to deliver a well balanced composition that retains the listeners interest in a song that adds an individuality to a crowded market place, while not straying from the anticipated.

A little more user friendly than the music you will typically discover on the site, but from time to time it is good to veer, at least a little, towards the more mainstream and I wish the trio every success.

Dead Natives – Something Strange – Audio

The English alt-indie quartet released the three track single Something Strange on the 13th.

A pressurised stream of music is uncorked on hitting play as the roughly eleven minutes of Something Strange fizzes in to the room.

Underpinning the prescriptive britpop temper Dead Natives are able to do far more than merely follow the formula as they inject a more pugnacious construct to the music, which is most prevalent in the opening track – the title – and my pick of the release (available on bandcamp), which perhaps unsurprisingly is the briefest – lasting more than a minute less than either of the other two pieces.

My hope is that Dead Natives continue with the compression with less use of the elongation as, to my ears, their material is far stronger when tautened rather than flowered.

Hawk – Take It Away – Audio

The English alt-rock quartet Hawk, release the EP She Knows on the 17th of March.

Hawk

From the forthcoming release is Take It Away.

The ethereal voice of Julie Hawk accompanied by the condensed and pressurised bass by Chris Handsley, from which it emerges, is the signature sound of Hawk. Glittering guitar combinations by Julie and Matthew Harris with a tautly leashed percussion provided by Sam Campbell serve the contrasting palette that affords the intrigue of the compositions.

The context of the music is on the darker elements of life, not seeking to wallow in them, rather to offer a challenge to what are becoming social mores, with Take It Away arguing against a growing societal acceptance that women should be afraid to go out at night and if they do, it is their own fault if they are abused.

PSYBLINGS – Become A Pattern – Audio

The English psychedelic rock quintet PSYBLINGS found some Studio time to record a few tracks.

PSYBLINGS - Become A Pattern

PSYBLINGS

Currently on a short tour in England – prior to heading off PSYBLINGS made available one of the new songs – Become A Pattern.

A just over three minutes track of curling wisps of guitars threading with the echoey vocal, which emerge from a drum kit that revolves around the steel with the bass keeping all the elements in line.

Word has not arrived yet as to whether the collection of recordings will be surfacing as an EP, LP or individual singles – as I have news I will keep you appraised.
