Hang on a second while we grab that post for you.
If you want new and exciting music this is where you need to look. This little cubby hole of wonderment will provide any reader with handfuls of sparkling new bands causing a fuss under and above ground in the ever changing music scene. POW!
Just close your eyes and listen. This is the Fantastic London four-piece called “Torches” with their track “Close Ups” a cover of the “Crushed Beaks” single which was released last year. By adjusting the pase and feel of the song Torches have created a piece of music which would not seem out of place on any established artists album. Its brilliant and cleaver mix of loud and quiet allows the listener to hear the lyrics emotion whist being thrown a musical onslaught later in the track.
Currently unsigned the band are looking for their big break and this could very well be it. With an album to be expected late this year or early next year they will be one of the bands to watch out for this summer. Undoubtedly appearing on many stages at this summers festivals. With fans like Django Django this group will not be stuck in other bands shadows for much longer as their sound is both defined and infectious. The deep throated vocals sound like a mixture between Editors and Hurts, and if you like either of these groups you will surely be adding “Torches” to your iTunes.
I would love to see what this group has to offer the live music scene and will try to see them over the summer. This type of mellow, dance, rock is very much popular now so surely big things are yet to come.
Check out more of their music here on their very stylish looking website. Enjoy.
Have you ever had a song that is so addictive you just cant get it out your head? Well if you haven’t you will very soon. Miike Snow is a Swedish dace pop group formed in 2007. Surprisingly not one person in the band is called Mike or has the surname Snow but this doesn’t matter. Christian Karlsson, Pontus Winnberg, and Andrew Wyatt have just produce the sound for the summer with their track “Paddling Out”.Whether you want cheering up, a good dance or just simply want to listen to some good music this track makes you smile and tap your feet (and in these depressing times we need a bit of happiness).
If you love bands like Delphic, Django Django or early Calvin Harris this track is for you. I was singing the chorus so loud in the car today i think anyone looking on might have thought I was a bit “special” but you just have to with this song. It will make people who haven’t walked stand up and jiggle themselves all over the place lets hope the album out later this year will be also good as this.

Prepare yourself for an onslaught of fun and boptastic tuneage heading your way. The track above is by the brilliant and hotly tipped “Django Django” a London foursome with some serious fire-power and synth-crushing addictiveness.
Having formed in 2009 at art school in Edinburgh, and released their début album on the 30th January this year the band have had a busy time generating hype and creating an image for themselves. They have mass appeal to me for the following reasons;
1) Do not have baby faces and are therefore older than me.
2) Make some sweet music.
3) Have a growing respect for facial hair.
With these three critical elements in one group the last three years have passed with a blur, and their tour has just sold out all over the UK. They are set to grace many a stage up and down the country so if you can go see them.
If you are fans of Ghostpoet, Polinski or Worship I suggest you check these guys out before they explode into the mainstream. If you like the sound of this be sure to to check out what else they have to have offer on their website here. Enjoy :D
