'Hey, if you want to.. I could come and get you..'. Chill, sassy, sparkly, dreamy beats from Perth. This is Flower Drums and they are currently recording an album, so watch out.
I don’t know if it’s just me, or if it’s the lyrics ad the generally vibe but I can totally relate to just chilling out at home, late, can’t sleep and hitting up some babe being like, ‘you know what, id totally just come and be down with just being with you rn’.
NB. Quite a terrifying image.
Don’t get me wrong, John Lennon is alright - but check out this guy, Jon Lemmon. Great name, great show, great song here titled ‘Wonder’.
Not only that, but also gotta do a shout out cause he is a home bro from New Zealand, and even more so, Wellington. Love ya’ll. <2
From Coasts to Coastal Cities, we love them all. ‘Bad Dreams’ from these british indie rockers is another raw garage indie track that ignites a little bit of a step and boogie. I imagine they’d be great as a live act, and if you’re in Bath this month, you’ll be able to find out by checking them out at Moles Club on the 12th. Enjoy.
Coasts are nice, oceans are too, this remix of Oceans by Coasts from Aussie duo Twice as Nice is always pretty amazing (see what I did there, I am clever). Actually it’s been on coming back onto my playlist rather frequently as of late, and I find it extremely helpful in the morning when I wake up to get a good start to the day, along with toast that has smiley faces on it. Enjoy.
Here is a girl named Lia Ices (well, stage named at least) wearing one of them leaf/flower crown things that reminds me awfully a lot of my old friend Lana Del Rey. She’s got quite a nice song here called ‘Daphne’ which does this quite nice thing at about half way where it gets kinda intense all of a sudden. Good work.
Apparently she is already quite popular around these parts, but I’d only just picked up on her recently. Good thing, too, eh?
The title of this song doesn’t seem very appealing, but I can assure you the actual song is very much great. I guess drowning butterflies is just a metaphor for something. I sent him a message on twitter to ask, so we’ll see what he says. If he responds I’ll let you know.
'Me' is actually my favourite 1975 song, and I quite like The 1975 I've decided after listening to them quite frequently over the past few months. Great news, I know you are happy you know about it.
FFFRRANNNO, who seems like a lovely fellow, did a remix of it a while back (and also a remix of Pressure, btw) and incorporated layers upon layer of sounds which make the originally somewhat depressing (how I like it) track slightly more upbeat, while still retaining the melancholy of the whole thing. It’s like addition to strip it down as the droning synths feel like they’ve been masked yet are still very prominent. Serious stuff for serious people, Remmuder on soundcloud says it best:
Gonna go a a quick blog binge to catch up on some artists that you need to hear that I haven’t posted about yet so expect some quick short sanppy posts while I’m in a good mood.
Alright! Here is one from Charlotte OC, who I guess is from the states considering she spells colour that way (note: she’s actually from BRITIAN, what a joke). I am drinking a budweiser right now though, so, pieces pieces..
This track is rather fantastic, and I quite enjoy it - a little bit brooding, dark kinda pop that could fit in somewhere nicely in your itunes. She’s got a whole EP that you can have a look into over here which is pretty gr8. Peace.
Little May are just 3 gals from Sydney, you know. Doing their thing, you know, chilling, playing instruments and you know, hanging out in Redfern and Newtown and stuff.
Nah I’m kidding, I don’t know where these girls hang out although we have some mutual friends in common on facebook so I added them (hey girls, be my friend plz - i think you are all great.).
Anyway, they have released this song which is pretty great and is the second single from their self titled debut EP. Have a listen above and if you like it, make sure to support the artist and grab it on itunes
Chucking X’s in everything is awesome, that’s great, we get it, got it? FLXXDS come from LXS XNGXLXS, XNXTXD STXTXS and consists of three members, X, XX and XXX (according to facebook). Haha, isn’t this fun/annoying.
Both FLXXDS two soundcloud releases are pretty great though, and have both been quite popular, rising to number 1 in the HypeM originals chart. Listen to ‘Lie to Me’ above, and I’m nice, so here is a link directly to listen to the City and Colour cover ‘Two Coins' as well.
