New Sounds #54 May 11 2016




BOYS - ALL MY FRIENDS
Swoony, lo-fi, shoegaze inflected single from Nora Karlsson’s (of HOLY) indie pop project, taken from the upcoming 'Love On Tour' EP, set for release on May 20 via Punk Slime Recordings. Star rating: 3.5/5




FEATHER BEDS - PLAY DEAD
Dublin musician Michael Orange airs the first single of looped instrumentation and ambient electronics from his second album, which was recorded in Montreal and Dublin and is scheduled for release next year. Following last year's debut, 'The Skeletal System', this fragile vocalled track flows pleasingly over four-plus minutes. Star rating: 4/5




UNITED FRUIT - WHEN THE SUN BEATS DOWN
Glasgow alt-rock quartet deliver some propulsive post-punk melodies and seering guitar on this latest single, taken from their new album 'Eternal Return' released May 13. Catch live on May 12 at The Tunnels, Aberdeen. Star rating: 4/5




L.U.V - YOU'LL NEVER LET ME GO
Third single from the Brisbane-based sister duo, Maya and Vivi Mohan, following debut single, 'Take Me To The Sea' and 'I Can Be The Answer' of last year. Dreamy, catchy flowing melody and dual overlapping vocals balance playful hooks with an infectious indie pop vibe. Star rating: 3/5




ALEXANDER BIGGS - OUT IN THE DARK 
Second single from the bedroom DIY Melbourne acoustic folkster, echoing strains of Elliott Smith in the light vocal touch and slow-burning trajectory. Debut EP on way later this year. Star rating: 3/5
