The Swedish indie-rock trio Overjoyed are working towards the release of an EP for later in the year.
Last appearing in the New Year Ninety, their new song, which came out a view hours ago, Taxi Driver, extrapolates their ability to create music which is able to fill the mind with good feelings, whilst simultaneously generating an undercurrent of reflective melancholia.
The England based indie-dance quartet River Fury are set to release their début LP Five Year Plan later in the year.
The first track to be revealed is Jewels Of The City, which is available on bandcamp, is a glittering array of popping guitar, bleary vocal and skipping tempo which has the ability to lighten even the darkest skies with its easy gait and leaves the listener in good humour.
The US synth-rock project of Meric Long – FAN – releases the LP Barton’s Den on the 4th of May.
The ten track album (available on bandcamp) was originally never intended to exist, though as a stack of songs began to surface from what had started out as experimenting with writing songs for synthesiser having inherited a couple of synths from Meric’s deceased father, making a change from experience as a seasoned musicians in writing songs for guitar.
It wasn’t until a long term contact began to listen to the tracks and prompt Meric to consider putting together something more organised that the idea of FAN emerged and hence the début LP Barton’s Den.
The most recent track to surface and opening song is Bob1.
The Belgian alt-metal quartet Wound Collector release the LP Eternal Bloodcult on the 24th of May.
The first track to surface from the album Divine Music, Unholy Flesh – the fifth of the eight songs – showcases their twist to the core sound of death metal, with their deployment of three voices, winding guitar and tenor saxophone set to a pulverising bass and drum-kit.
