Hamburg-based, Bowie-inspired and exciting, emerging outfit The Kecks have just released their new single ‘All For Me’. Their flamboyant pop is made to stick, and ‘All For Me’ is no exception. It is a slow paced Arctic Monkeys-inspired piece of soothing jazzy pop that at times becomes a bit of a background tune, but those great and warm vocals help prevent that throughout!

Rila’s Edge – Coast
A grand and soaring new track has been released by alternative shoegaze outfit Rila’s Edge. ‘Coast’ is an anthemic, infectious indie rock track that matches perfectly with the musical interests of fans of Newcastle’s locals The Pale White and resembles hints of Blossoms’ later work. ‘Coast’ showcases a positive message about pushing yourself to your full potential rather than ‘coast’ through life barely getting by.
Neon Islands – MOON
Neon Islands’ new single ‘MOON’ starts out strong with a soothing dream rock vibe, continuing those hazy vibes with vocal harmonies and hints of synths filling their moony soundscape. Their flamboyant and open-hearted style is admirable but at times a tad generic, doesn’t mean it’s not a great tune that makes you move, just means I’m unsure if I’ll remember the band on the basis of their new single.

Neon Midnights – Bedroom Aerobic Style
‘Bedroom Aerobic Style’ is the infectious, disco-infused new single of Neon Midnights, also appearing on their recently released self-titled debut EP. It is a fun sounding rock-inspired track evolving around nearly nagging yet intriguing vocals and a thumping synth-driven soundscape filled with harmonies and mysterious compositions!

Orchard – Paws
A new soaring indie rock track from Stoke-on-Trent-based alternative outfit Orchard has been released and ‘Paws’ is just what I needed! A wining yet soothing and infectious track filled with tingling guitar lines and thumping drums make this a wholesome release. Essentially a love song, ‘Paws’ is about being absorbed in life and being swamped, but knowing there is a shoulder to lean on when needed.
