New Sounds #126 December 17 2016





THE PLASTIC ATTRACTION - NO FORESIGHT
Perth, Western Australia foursome follow their summer debut single, ‘Holding You’, a mix of alt-rock beats and a fuzzy meld of guitar, bass and harmonies. Vocalist Liam, recalls “I’ll never forget how ‘No Foresight’ started its life. We were at a rehearsal and Matt (guitarist) said he wanted to show us a new riff he’d come up with. He let loose playing what is now the chorus riff, and it was one of those moments when everyone was like ‘yes! this is our next song!' The track spiralled from there, with the instruments materialising very quickly”. Star rating: ★★★☆☆




FUN WITH MUESLI - GHOST
Curiously named alt-indie two-piece from Finland, consisting of brothers Aki (vocals, keys, drums) and Henri Laakso (guitars). This opening track from their debut EP 'Houseboat', released on December 9, was self-produced in a garage in a Helsinki suburb. Star rating: ★★★☆☆




THE MOLOCHS - YOU AND ME
The LA band follow-up debut 'No More Cryin' with this track taken from the upcoming album 'America's Velvet Glory' out January 13 2017 on Innovative Leisure. Lead singer Lucas Fitzsimmons describes the track as about, "losing the struggle to control one's emotions.” Star rating: ★★★☆☆




BED. - GIRL
Portland trio follow their debut EP 'Klickitat' release from earlier in the year with this new lo-fi, fuzzy nostalgic piece that harnesses reverb against Sierra Haager’s lightly drifting vocals. Star rating: ★★★★☆




COUSIN KULA - ODE TO LYLE
Second single, produced by Jim Barr of Portishead (who also worked on their previous, 'Hesitation'), from the Bristol sextet.
Singer Elliot Ellison says of the song, “It’s about the realisation that we're getting older, and that there is so much to do, and to wake up and be creatively prolific in life and not let days pass by wasted.” Part funky disco, part dreamy art-pop. Star rating: ★★★★☆
