New Sounds #49 April 26 2016




GORGEOUS BULLY - BEAUCOUP
Out May 27 via Art is Hard Records, this is half of a split 7” by Manchester's Thomas Crang with Something Anorak. Lo-fi, foggy alt-pop, with layerings of guitar that all sound very lovely, beaucoup. Catch live at Night & Day CafĂ©, Manchester on April 28. Star rating: ***.5/5




EDITS - FALL BACK TO EARTH
Back to Manchester for this self-described 'atmospheric space-pop' duo - Liv Westhead (vocals/synths) and Chris Abbott (guitars/
programming) - with their first single release after last year's 'Higher Tides' EP. Electronic other world-ness with Liv's penetrating vocals. Star rating: ***/5




PARTYBABY - I DON'T WANNA WAIT
The Californian outfit follow debut 'Everything's All Right' and 'Your Old Man' with more raucous pop hooks and fierce and blazing punk energy on this new track. Catch live at The Great Escape festival in Brighton on May 21. Star rating: ***.5/5




THE CALM FIASCO - LOSE CONTROL
Released last week, the new single from Glasgow's indie rockers pulls together a killer combination of pounding drum beats, catchy pop hooks and some down 'n' dirty guitar riffs. Star rating: ****/5




BO ROCHA - HOLD MY GAZE
London-based songstress shares her latest single, out on May 27 via Bait and Switch Records. Hypnotic vocals with pensive piano chords and effective synths dominate in this electro-R&B follow-up to 'Angel Eyes'. Star rating: ***/5
