The Matinee July 24th includes six new tracks for your listening pleasure. We hope you find your next favorite band or song today. Arists are representing the US and the UK today.
BOYS – “Step Back” (London, England)
RIYL: The Drums, Beach Fossils, Ducktails
BOYS are back with a brand new track titled “Step Back”. It’s a dreamy and euphoric gem that floats effortlessly over meticulous guitar riffs and atmospheric harmonies.
“Step Back” is the second single from their forthcoming self-titled EP which will be released next month. The band shares a bit about the track: “It’s about the sudden ending of a relationship, and even though you don’t want to, in the long run taking a step back from the person will be best for everyone”.
BOYS are Ross Pearce (vocals), Mike Stothard (guitar), Kane Butler (guitar) and Daniel Heffernon (bass).
Duncan Fellows – “Fresh Squeezed” (Austin, USA)
RIYL: Mondo Cozmo, Mt. Joy, Wilderado
“Fresh Squeezed” is the first single from Duncan Fellows’ forthcoming album titled Both Sides of the Ceiling.
“Fresh Squeezed” is a lyrically clever track that describes making a less than stellar breakfast yet the OJ was “fresh squeezed”. The song later follows the day in the life of Duncan Fellows that includes eavesdropping on others and the retrospective statement of “I just got to know myself a bit better”. Sonically the track is charming with a nice psych rock vibe throughout. The video is pretty stellar as well.
Duncan Fellows is comprised of Colin Harman, Cullen Trevino, Margot Stevenson, David Stimson, and Tim Hagen.
Frankie Rose – “Red Museum” (Los Angeles, USA)
RIYL: Lower Dens, Memoryhouse, No Joy
“Red Museum” is the latest track from LA based Frankie Rose. “Red Museum” is atmospheric and dreamy as Rose’s sugary vocals may mention a few negative aspects like “everything falls apart and everything you know is a lie” yet we find out that we are actually listening to a love song.
Frankie explains: “It is a portrait of the kind of fearful thoughts that can run through a person’s head upon the possibility of caring for another person.”
“Red Museum” immediately needs to be added to your chill out playlist as it has a gentle and soothing effect along a hint of 80s inspired magic.
Rose’s forthcoming new album, Cage Tropical, will be released August 11th via Slumberland Records.
Har Mar Superstar – “Personal Boy” (Minneapolis, USA)
RIYL: Seal, The Weeknd
Sean Tillmann is Har Mar Superstar and he has just released “Personal Boy”.
It’s a long and sensual track that describes a special kind of love as he croons “You’re the only one I need, like a vampire I will feed on this feeling all day”. The track is heavy on drum beats and driving synth. “Personal Boy” was recorded earlier this year with producers BJ Burton (Bon Iver, Sylvan Esso) and Lazerbeak (Doomtree, Lizzo).
Har Mar Superstar’s new EP, Personal Boy, will be released August 22nd via Cult Records.
Swimm – “Speak Politely” (Los Angeles, USA)
RIYL: Day Wave, Mating Ritual, Sego
“Speak Politely” is the newest track from Swimm. As the duo are crafting a more mature sound and the album’s theme seems to be centered around relationships, the result is captivating.
Chris Hess’ vocals take center stage on this track as he describes the conundrum of trust in relationships and realizing how the beginning of a relationship can be so intense and as things change the problem becomes “I can’t afford you to stay, I can’t afford you to go away.” As usual the duo provides a sonic gem with floating harmonies and atmospheric vibes surrounding Mr. Hess’ stellar vocals. The horns in “Speak Politely” are a nice touch as well.
Swimm are Chris Hess and Adam Winn. “Speak Politely” is the second single from Swimm’s upcoming full length debut album titled Sentimental Porno.
Zuli – “kubadiver” (New York City, USA)
RIYL: Cheers Elephant, Generationals, James Supercave,
Zuli is the moniker of Ryan Camenzuli. “kubadiver” is the newest release by the NY based artist. The track starts slow and lean and then erupts into an amazing rocker that totally grabs your attention.
The feel from the track is like hitching a ride on a musical rollercoaster and feeling utterly satisfied once the track ends even though it’s just shy of 3 minutes. “kubadiver” is the first single from Zuli’s forthcoming album.
If you don’t have a SoundCloud Go account, the song is also available on Spotify.
