The English indie-rock trio The Pale White release their eponymous EP on the 29th of September.

The Pale White - Downer

The Pale White

Although both tracks will be on the four on the EP (which is available as vinyl through bigcartel) the newest track to surface Downer is of different flavour to their feature last year of Let You Down.

Downer has a bouncing rhythm that snakes through the body with a slightly hazed vocal giving the song a gazey countenance.

Overjoyed – Downer – Single Review

Overjoyed is a Swedish indie-dance trio.

Overjoyed

Overjoyed

Within the past fifteen hours their latest track Downer surfaced. If there were awards for the song-title / sound oxymoron – Downer would most assuredly be on the shortlist.

The bubbles of the trio of Overjoyed sparkle around the room as though shot through a Bren Gun and the listener finds themselves happily dancing in bright party mood as the driving percussion pulls – like a puppeteer – at the limbs with glittering guitars bouncing reflective prisms from the walls as the vocal spins the audience in joyful abandon.

I have heard whispers that Overjoyed have set time aside later in the year to head in to the Studio to complete recording their début LP – a release I am already set for getting hold of some new dancing pumps.

Monograms

Monograms - new-wave from the USA

Monograms

Combining elements of Blondie and shoegaze the listener is led into a treat of CBGBs reworking as Monograms elongate flat extenders far more than is politic and it is for this melodious drone that they capture the attention.




Only a band from Brooklyn or San Francisco could display such disdainful disinterest in their out-put that the listener falls into a tumble of delight as they deliver a sound which the audience carries high on their own shoulders. Early Blondie and the life cycle of The Nuns and Ramones were able to carry-off the nonchalance with such aplomb as underneath the laissez-faire delivery Monograms have a passion to reflect of how they feel treated by the world around their lives.

A couple of EPs behind them Downer and FaderMonograms is a band the wider sphere needs to add to their playlist to remind them of the contempt with which the 1% treat the 99% as they reflect of the branding of the slavery of socio-capitalism by which the bailout of banking is deemed a ‘success story’ followed by decades of ever greater collateral damage of the irrelevant 99% of the worlds population to maintain the posture of what was a failure of a economic and social model in the ’70s and their forbears protested about that is coming home to roost in the ’10s.
