WE’RE HALFWAY THROUGH 2017 AND THERE HAS ALREADY BEEN PLENTY OF NEW MUSIC. PLUGGED IN HAS ROUNDED UP FIVE TRACKS BY BANDS WE THINK YOU CAN’T AFFORD TO MISS.
THESE are the five tracks released this year, that we believe are real stand out songs. Have a listen and see what you think.
5. NO TEETH – BLISTERS
This track from Newcastle based trio, continues their string of scuzz rock releases and helps to build on their ever growing back catalogue. ‘Blisters’ is a little softer than their previous releases, yet it still channels that doomy lo-fi sound that has attracted many people to this band.
4. YONAKA – WOULDN’T WANNA BE YA
Yonaka are the band to listen to now, with a rapidly growing audience and impressive live presence, Yonaka are going from strength to strength. They released their latest track ‘Wouldn’t Wanna Be Ya’ back in March, but this two minute power ballad, brags infectious riffs and catchy lyrics. ‘Wouldn’t Wanna Be Ya’ is a thrilling and confident release from this band.
3. TRASH – MIGRAINES
If you haven’t already familiarised yourself with Trash, where have you been? They have had success with singles ‘Give Up’ and ‘Workout’ and are showing no signs of slowing down with their newest release ‘Migraines’. Another infectious indie-pop track that has uplifting melodies and sparkling guitars. ‘Migraines’ will feature on Trash’s upcoming summer EP and it’s already looking like it’s going to be a diamond release.
2. DREAM WIFE – SOMEBODY
Powerful and important lyrics; “I am not my body, I am somebody” mixed with punchy guitar riffs and a tight drum beat, make up Dream Wife’s newest release “Somebody”. Released back in March, this Icelandic/British trio are showcasing just how good they are. ‘Somebody’ explores the challenges women still face in today’s society. Dream Wife are making important and down right incredible music right now.
