New Sounds #58 May 24 2016




VOGUE DOTS - IF YOU STAY
Canadian synth pop duo - Babette Hayward and Tynan Dunfield - create a hypnotic slice of indie electronica here, with their layered, ethereally retro Beach House/Best Coast sound. The single is out now via Austrian label, Sea You Entertainment. On tour in the UK between June 1-9. Star rating: 3/5




THEME PARK - YOU ARE REAL
It's been a while since we heard from the London trio, who return with this new track, an effervescent number from their upcoming second album, mixed with their trademark trop-pop acoustic guitars, funky bass and falsetto vocals. Star rating: 3.5/5




HAPPYNESS - SB's TRUCK
Another band returning after a hiatus. This new summery jangle single - about the late wrestler AndrĂ© The Giant - from the indie rock trio is the first we’ve heard from them since their 2014 debut, 'Weird Little Birthday. On tour now with The Dandy Warhols, they next play The Art School, Glasgow on May 26. Star rating: 3/5




AMAROUN - FEAR
Second single from the Northants alt-folk singer-songwriter Jay Brown, aka Amaroun. Produced by Kristofer Harris (Bear's Den, Clock Opera), the electronica track, released on May 27, is suffused with a lush vocal and smooth beats is the follow-up to 'Bedbugs'. Catch live at the 5 Bells, New Cross, London on May 26. Star rating: 4/5




DARKLY - WAITING ON YOU
New from the north London electronic producer Tom Butler, following his debut 'Touch', which has had over 100,000+ plays on Soundcloud. Befitting his name, the brooding, synth-led cut flows on Balearic beats, sharp percussion and R&B vibes. Star rating: 4.5/5
