The Matinee January 22nd Edition has six awesome new singles to kick off your Friday and get you ready for the weekend. We have electronic soul, hard hitting indie rock, garage vibey rock, and indie pop-rock.
Billy Fox – “East Coast” (Sydney, Australia)
Billy Fox is creating awesome soul infused electronic tracks, and “East Coast” is the perfect feel good track. Fox reminds a bit of Max Frost as they both have those sultry vocals and the production and beats to allow each track to shine.
“East Coast” is a chilled out ode to homesickness of the best kind and all the nostalgic twangs that come with yearning for a coastline, a city and its people. We look forward to hearing more from Billy Fox in 2016.
EAT – “Byker Drone” (Newcastle, UK)
We don’t know a lot about the band EAT, except they have a debut track entitled “Byker Drone” and it definitely has us all wanting to hear more.
“Byker Drone” is a reverb filled track that sits between garage vibey rock and attention grabbing shoegaze.
We know the band EAT is from the UK and that we can’t wait to hear what other tracks will be included on their upcoming Byker Drone EP.
Great News – “Diamonds” (Bergen, Norway)
Great News have only been playing together for less than a year, but you can’t tell by listening. The band has gotten great accolades over in Norway and has opened for the likes of Unknown Mortal Orchestra. “Diamonds” has that laid back feel good indie pop/rock vibe going on and you can’t help but push play again after first listen.
Great News shares a bit about the track: “The mood we’re trying to get across with the song is kind of the same feeling of slipping on ice. You can’t fight it, you have to accept that you’re losing control. It’s also like watching the world through a diamond. You’ll see many sides of the same reality, and you’ll be seduced by the illusion.”
Great News are Even Kjelby, Lars Henrik Stoud Platou, and Ole Kristian Einarsen.
Lucifers Beard – “Black & Blue” (Shrewsbury, UK)
Lucifers Beard are set to release their three track EP, Y E T I in May and we are sharing the first track from the EP. The track is nostalgic and reminds of some of the great 90s bands akin to Soundgarden but they keep it fresh and progressive for today. “Black & Blue” is a punch to the face from the start and keeps your attention throughout.
The band has been playing together since 2013 but we are really excited to hear the upcoming EP as they had help from acclaimed producer and mixer Tristan Ivemy (The Holloways, Frank Turner, Kassassin Street).
Lucifers Beard are Chris Barnes, Peter Doors, and Joe Miller.
Slingshot Dakota – “Paycheck” (Bethlehem, PA, USA)
The newest track from Bethlehem, PA duo Slingshot Dakota has the perfect amount of scuzzy guitar, hard hitting drums and Comando’s sweet vocals bleeding through all the attention grabbing elements.
The newest track from their upcoming album has us excited to hear the album in it’s entirety. Also, if you pre-order the Clear with Violet and Pink Splatter 12″ vinyl, a dollar from every purchase will go towards Third Street Alliance which benefits women and children.
“Paycheck” will be on Slingshot Dakota’s third LP, which drops March 11th via Topshelf Records. Pre-order it here. Slingshot Dakota are Carly Comando (keyboard / vocals) and Tom Patterson (drums / vocals).
TW Walsh – “Young Rebels” (Boston, USA)
TW Walsh has a brand new single, “Young Rebels”. The Boston based artist has a knack for creating the best genre crossing tracks that keep you wanting to hear each and every new track he creates.
“Young Rebels” is an awesome scuzzy, garage-y, psychedelic gem and if it does not get your attention and get you moving after first listen, we don’t know what will.
