With round 1 of musical discoveries a resounding success, we’re continuing the series, going deeper still in our search of great alternative music. Most of these artists are yet to be the household names they deserve to be, but just you sit and wait.
The Fairview – The Adhesive
Pop-punk of the most heartfelt variety, The Fairview aren’t the ones to hide behind their pride. This is a song about sticky relationships, complete with big choruses and nasally vocals reminiscent of of the early 2000s. There is still room for growth, but their excitement can carry them far.
Single is released on July 30th, 2020.
Stay Voiceless – I am a weight
Stay Voiceless play it straight like it’s 1992. Apart from the flannel, they have the grunge angsty vocals, and loud-soft dynamics down to a tee. Even the familiar Rape you/Smells like teen spirit strumming pattern sneaks in. Regardless, these guys have soul and they make a mighty nice racket.
Bjorn Rydhog – Give Me Sunshine
Nobody can accuse the Swedes of failing to produce great melodies, over a large, blue-tinted canvas. Bjorn Rydhog writes emotional music with a hint of Nick Drake post-depression dettachmnt.
Released on August 14, 2020.
Tender Glue – You Are Tennessee
Fragile is the voice and playing of Tender Glue, an artist swimming the same deep waters as the indie-folk of Jeff Buckley’s successors. You Are Tennessee has the appearance of a standard which is always a blessing for a newly written song.
