Rebel Kites – “Atlas Sky”

Rebel Kites – “Atlas Sky”

“Atlas Sky” is the rousing, folk-Americana single by newcomers Rebel Kites. It’s one part Of Monsters and Men and one part Gengahr, another London-based band.

Night Beds – “Tide Teeth”

Night Beds – “Tide Teeth”

Night Beds have released a new track titled “Tide Teeth”. The brainchild of Nashville based singer/songwriter Winston Yellen, the newer tracks seems to take a little more of a synth direction than the acoustic based tracks from 2013’s Country Sleep. The new material is still ethereal and dreamy, so we approve of the updated sound. With Yellen’s yummy voice, it could really be […]
