May 29 2015 - Hot Top Ten
A BILLION LIONS - DOOMSDAY BABIES
Out July 13, the second single from the fast-rising punk rock Yorkshire four, the follow-on from debut release 'Torquay'. A full album's worth on the way.
DAMIEN IKE - EVEN IN WAR
More delightful soul & glitch synth pop from the East London artist who we featured in March as Track Of The Day with his 'Kingdom Come' debut.
ACTIVE CHILD - STRANGER
From the 'Mercy' album, out June 16, Pat Grossi melds soft synths and a harp around a falsetto vocal that make three minutes of electronic-tinged alt-R&B.
COEUR - LORD
Lead track from the new Glasgow synth/drums electronic duo's just released debut album 'Activist', which follows two previous EPs since forming last year. See live at The Bungalow, Paisley on June 12.
DARKLY - REFLECTION
After making an impressive intro early last year with debut EP 'Tremors', Hertfordshire producer Tom Butler once again dips deep into soulful, rnb electronic arrangements with this new track. Catch live at Queen of Hoxton, London tomorrow (May 30).
BLACK DOLDRUMS - DREAMCATCHER
London (West Ham) garage fuzz duo (Kev Gibbard, vocals/guitar; Sophia La Croix, drums/percussion) veer heavily into psych drones on all nine minutes-plus of this latest track.
DARLING JAMES - ULTIMATUM TALK
Former member of The Boat People, Melbourne-based James O'Brien releases this new single under new guise with a folk-psych-organ-and-ukulele twist.
GHOSTLY KISSES - NEVER KNOW
Quebec City electronic duo Margaux Sauvé and Dragos Chiriac hold true to their name with this ethereal first single.
DEEPSHADE - TATTOO
Just released the psych-fused alt-rock debut single from the Wigan trio we featured last November with 'Sad Sun', also from their forthcoming debut album ‘Everything Popular Is Wrong’.
FOR ESMÈ - YOU
Nu-disco-infused single that's sure to get feet tapping, from the Toronto electronic synth trio, and which will appear on their album 'Sugar' out later in the year. Robyn-like touches from Martha Meredith, who also works the drum machine and synth, alongside the Scandi-esque vocal.
