New Sounds #33 24/2/16




TIM GLAE ZEE - YOUNG AND BREATHLESS 
Electro-pop/R&B vibes in the debut track from New Zealander Glae Zee (formerly known as Boy Wulf). Spread with smooth and subtle glitchiness and atmospheric pads. Taken from 'Dis Graceful' EP out June 6. Star rating: ***.5/5




DAZY CROWN - HONEYDEW
Solo project of songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Thomas Little, originally from Newmarket Ontario, now based in Norwich. Surf indie lo-fi with a Mac DeMarco infectiousness. Star rating: ***/5




JARBIRD - IONA
New single from the debut EP, out March 4, from the London-by-way-of-Leeds art-pop four-piece. Chilled, ethereal dreaminess, that gives a feel of the remote Hebridean island it is called sfter. Star rating: ***/5




HAPPY HOLLOWS - WAY HOME
Catchy hooks, angular guitars, shimmering analog-synth based melodies and gripping vocal delivery in the new single released this week, from the Californian quartet, featuring guitarist Sarah Negahdari and bassist Charles Mahoney. The two initially met at a LA strip mall where Sarah was reading tarot cards to pay the bills. Mahoney had just moved to the city from Washington D.C. to pursue his Ph.D. at UCLA. Star rating: ****/5




SEA SPAN - WINTER SUBLET
Self-produced/released debut track - written during a blizzard  - which came out last month from the four-piece originally from North Carolina, now based in Philadelphia. James Thomas's light and mellow vocals ease along a flowing melody. Star rating: ***/5
