Squid – Bright Green Field

Following the release of her single ‘Guiltless’ in 2019, fans of the alternate pop goddess Dodie were greeted with a new era of her artistry and the rumours of a debut album from the upcoming artist were discussed among the fanbase. Read the entire review by clicking on the image.

LISTEN THIS WEEK:

Every week we highlight a few songs that you should absolutely listen to. In week 18 these are:

WAVVES – Help is on the Way

Genre: surf rock
FFO: DIIV, FIDLAR, The Growlers
Listen because: the raw and energetic vibes of WAVVES are intriguing and exciting and the way the song is built up, there is no way you’re not absolutely mesmerised by the bands’ inventive hooks and riffs!

Molino – Second Life

Genre: indie pop
FFO: The Flamingos, BADBADNOTGOOD, Balthazar
Listen because: the tropical sound of Molino’s brand new single ‘Second Life’ is uplifting and brings a smile to our faces and a spring in our step. Their alternative indie pop sound is created by artists from all over the world and the band barely fits just one genre!

YONAKA – Call Me a Saint

Genre: alternative rock
FFO: DON BROCO, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, The Hunna
Listen because: YONAKA simply never disappoints, the inexhaustible energy of the band is infectious and the stark vocals of power frontwoman Theresa give ‘Call Me a Saint’ that recognisable YONAKA-sound. It’s grand and energetic and we just want to listen to it on repeat, and repeat, and repeat…
