Sløtface – Take Me Dancing

Norwegian band Sløtface used to be known as Slutface but censorship on social media forced them to make a slight change to their name and now the ø instead of the u means they no longer have those problems.

Take Me Dancing is another catchy punk pop song from the quartet who are based in Bergen.

Sløtface will be playing on a very exciting bill at The Lexington in London on September 28th alongside Coves and INHEAVEN. This is a gig not to be missed if you’re a local. I’d love to get down to it myself but I don’t think I’m going to be able to fit it in to my schedule sadly.

You can keep up to date with the band via their Facebook page.

Enjoy.

Luxury Death – Radiator Face

Radiator Face is the debut single by Luxury Death, the project of real life partners Ben Thompson and Meg Williams.

I really like this and immediately want to hear more by the duo. I like the mix of male and female vocals. It’s perfect.

Katie Pham And The Moonbathers – Koala Kola

Last month I attended a free day of music at the Picture House Social in Sheffield as part of the Tramlines Festival.

I traveled up to South Yorkshire for the day mainly to see Liines and The Orielles but one of the bands who really impressed me was a local act called Katie Pham And The Moonbathers.

They play a brand of spangly lounge pop that is ideal for any warm summers day and Koala Kola was my favourite track from their set.

If you’d like to keep up to date with the band then you can do so on their Facebook page and you can purchase Koala Kola as part of a split E.P. they did with The Fentonville Street Band here.

Check them out and enjoy.

INHEAVEN – Drift

It probably won’t surprise you to hear INHEAVEN have made another amazing song available for your listening pleasure in Drift as every other track they have put out so far has been awesome.

Bassist Chloe Little’s vocals are much more prominent on Drift which gives it a bit of a different feel to the bands previous songs. The result though is still another catchy as fuck song from the London quartet.

INHEAVEN

As you’ve probably worked out from the praise above I really like INHEAVEN. I think they are one of the best of the new British bands around and I can’t wait to see them live again when they start their headline tour in Birmingham in a couple of weeks.

They also have a great support touring with them in Pale Waves who I’ve seen live before and can definitely recommend you check out before INHEAVEN take to the stage.

Nova Twins – Hitlist

Some really feisty punk today from London duo Nova Twins with Hitlist.

Sly Fox – Let’s Go All The Way

It’s Throwback Thursday and today we go back to 1986 for Let’s Go All The Way by Sly Fox.

The single was taken from the album of the same name that was released in 1985.

I remember 14-year old me really liked this song at the time. I actually bought it on 7″.

Sly Fox

Sly Fox were a duo of Gary “Mudbone” Cooper and Michael Camacho. They were very much a one hit wonder as a band.

Fun times, enjoy.

Skott – Porcelain

I’m not sure how much of this is true but the story goes that Skott was raised on a forest commune by outcast folk musicians in Scandinavia and didn’t hear contemporary music until her teens.

Whether it’s true or not though it doesn’t change the fact that she has made a gorgeous debut single in Porcelain.

Porcelain is part of a double single alongside Wolf which you can hear on SoundCloud

Skott

Skott has two live gigs coming up towards the end of next month, so if you are London based get yourself along to one of them. Dates below.

September 28th – Notting Hill Arts Club – London
September 29th – Birthdays – London

Enjoy.

Girlboss – Mrs. Doubtfire

Girlboss is the new project of New Zealand’s Lucy Botting. Botting used to be in the band Wet Wings.

I’ve never actually seen the film Mrs. Doubtfire but I’m sure glad I’ve heard the song of the same title because this is a really sweet indie pop song from the Wellington based musician. I love the guitars in it.

Girlboss

Girlboss will play their first gig soon opening for fellow Kiwi’s Yumi Zouma. If you throw the amazing Fazerdaze in to the mix it shows there is a lot of great music going on down in New Zealand at the moment.

Enjoy.

Anna of The North – Us

Some electronic pop today from Norway’s Anna Of The North.

AOTN is the musical project of singer Anna Lotterud and her producer Brady. Together they are churning out some great atmospheric pop hits.

Us is the perfect follow up to previous single Baby.

You can catch AOTN performing at The Lexington in London on September 20th, so get yourself along if you live locally or are going to be in the area.

Support comes from Man & The Echo and Avante Black so it looks to be a good night. Tickets available here.

Enjoy.

Bruja – Sculie

Some distorted scuzzy indie pop today from Barnsley trio Bruja with Sculie.

Sculie is part of a AA single, alongside the equally likeable Tori, which you can purchase here.

Bruja

September 3rd – The Polish Club – Barnsley
October 5th – The Castle Hotel – Manchester
