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.
Yardlander is a relatively new English brooding-rock quartet.
Having spent time honing on their craft on stage they recently revealed their first track for those not within reaching distance to hear as a recording – Kiss With Teeth.
On hitting play you may ponder the thought of ‘relatively new’ as thundering across the room spins a tune which many musicians of long teeth would be delighted to be able to produce as the quartet deftly weave betwixt one another, allowing each element to shine in turn, in a track which would not be lost on a windy and rainy day at Glastonbury.
Somewhat retrospective in nature, Yardlander, dampen rather than expand notes giving the song a resplendence of the 21st Century and is finely juxtaposed with the derivations of the sound, as whilst those of longer musical catalogues will naturally expand phrases, the quartet catching out the unwary, shorten them.
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).
