The Opera Comic – What Have We Done? – Audio

The indie-synth quintet The Opera Comic, from England, are planning to release the four track EP A Distant Now in September.

The Opera Comic

The first song to be revealed from the EP, which is also the first track on A Distant Now, What Have We Done?, was made available as a standalone single on the 20th.

The almost four and a half-minutes composition encompasses synthwave from the ’70s to the ’10s giving the song simultaneously a retrospective air and a current ebb and flow in which the listener finds themselves bathed by warming tones of hazy keys, punching percussion, driving guitar, a bass that gives the music ballast rounded by an expansive and sympathetic vocal.

The Newds – Drawing A Line – Video

It has been a few years since the English retro-rock band The Newds last featured.

The Newds

Their latest song to appear Drawing A Line, which came out earlier in the month, takes them in to the late ’70s rather than from their more normal sphere of influence of a decade earlier, with a tautly coiled composition that minds of a cat readying its muscles to lithely pounce.

Drawing a Line – The Newds is available on iTunes.*

Dom Clark Trio – Old Soldiers – Single Review

The alt-rock band Dom Clark Trio from England released a new track on the 17th.

Dom Clark Trio

Just over a year in to existence the trio, quite rightly, are still setting out their stall and defining their sound with the music revealed thus far being of varied texture though always of jazzy-interface with trumpet fusing in to the songs.

This necessarily means there is an element of pick and mix about the material, some flavours not being to taste others being sumptuous repast – with Old Soldiers and its off-beat trotting around the ears being of some considerable delight and well worth adding to the playlist of ‘music to nullify a frown’.

I look forward to hearing more by Dom Clark Trio in due course.

Mellor – Safe Word – Single Review

The English rock band Mellor has become something of a staple on the site, with their no-nonsense rock’n’roll since being introduced in 2016.

Mellor - Safe Word

Mellor

The newest song to surface – Safe Word – which is due for release on the 18th of August – is once again an exemplar of the art of rock, merely requiring the listener to clear space in which to dance and then to turn up the volume prior to hitting play.

This is the third single to have been revealed this year and whilst the frequency of new material is extremely welcome – I am looking forward to all the songs (and more) being scooped up in to one package.

JEPH – Hey Baby – Video

JEPH is a relatively new indie-gaze quartet from England.

JEPH

I have been able to listen to a handful of songs, the most recent of which Hey Baby surfaced on Friday.

JEPH create music of a summery-vibe with a vaguely trippy feel while underpinned by a dexterity of hand as the quartet are able to pull from three different voices and two six string guitars to create an amalgam of sound and while each song has a similarity of flavour they are all in their own way very different, making for an outfit I look forward to hearing more from in short order.
