The English indie rock band The Luka State released their latest single earlier in the month.

Bring This All Together has a lighter texture than much of their previous material with an indie dance temperament, which they deliver with their to be expected flourish of percussion that beats through the speakers.
The Howl & The Hum is a new scenic-rock quartet from England.

Once again, I am late to the draw and I do apologise to you for the fact. I was sent this on the 29th of March – within three hours of its reveal, I am that late, I write this on the 12th though you won’t see this until – today – the 17th – thus far this is their only song.
Godmanchester Chinese Bridge has a stunning cinematographic pallor that minds of film-noire as the swooping architectures of electronics arch across the ceiling, whilst the vocal drops in to earshot prior to being swept up, like firework ashes, by the submerged instrumentation and percussion as the munificent, incandescent synth arcs ever higher in to the sky.
The visualisation of the track in minds eye, recalls of the opening and closing sequences of ‘The World At War’ with its burnt and melting imagery.
Digital Criminals are able to create music that is scored by crushing rock guitar riffs whilst simultaneously open in architecture, giving it a surprising spaciousness in which the listener finds themselves headbanging in slow-motion.
The subtle brushes of electronica allows the material to develop its duality of sound, without ever becoming the forefront of attention with the audience engrossed in the heavy-metal which forms the foundations of the sounds.
Their most recent EP Bury Your Head was released earlier in the month and by way of an introduction, the last of the four tracks, Move it.
Leap of Faith, an English heavy-metal trio were introduced in November of last year and have now disbanded.
Leap Of Faith
Those who have stuck with the site for any length of time will know that by dint of the nature of the rationale for its existence more than 50% of bands and musical entities featured will have disappeared within six months of coming in to existence and within two years over 90% are long gone, with fond remembrances scribed herein.
This site exists to expose music of the moment that has value to add to the world, with no interest on whether some mainstream media placement takes interest, or if it is – ‘the next big thing of the moment’ – merely offering you the best independent musicians here today even if they are gone tomorrow.
Of more sunlit thought many of the individual players do come back in different guises and it is with some degree of certainty I can assure that is the case in Leap Of Faith.
Their farewell track Goes Around was equally sent with a – we will be back in different forms – email and I look forward to hearing of the new iterations.
The English indie band Dantevilles released a new single earlier this month.
Dantevilles – Graffiti – artwork
Lasting less than three minutes, Graffiti, has a sprightly step that springs the listener on to their toes to weave through the room as the popping guitar flashes through the speakers, whilst a precise drum beats double time giving the track its effervescence.
