It’s always nice to do your bit for society and here at HTF, when we aren’t helping out at the local village bake-off, we like to help out artists by supporting their latest releases.
We know that so many people are very cautious when it comes to anything new especially if it has not already been play-listed by radio or shown on TV, but don’t fret as these tracks have been through a vigorous screening process so that you can take a deep breath, relax and enjoy some of the best new music around.
Flyte – ‘Please Eloise’
This alt/pop London quartet have been releasing singles for the past year and have spent time touring with Bombay Bicycle Club and Lucy Rose. Their latest single ‘Please Eloise’ is filled to the brim with choppy-guitars and is topped off with a sparkling chorus.
For fans of: Django Django and Orange Juice
Swim Deep – ‘Namaste’
Swim Deep have returned with the synth magic of ‘Namaste’ from their sophomore album Mothers. But what everyone will be talking about in the YouTube comments is how great the video is. The pastiche clip shows the legend Paul Daniels hosting a rubbish 80’s game show and features Spector’s Fred Macpherson.
For fans of: Spector and Walk The Moon
Wavves – ‘Way Too Much’
Wavves just can’t help themselves, releasing two albums in one year (if you include the Wavves/The Cloud Nothings collaboration). What decade do they think this is? The 60’s?! The pop-punk kings have already received stunning reviews for their latest album V and ‘Way Too Much‘ is the records highlight. The perfect stop-gap whilst waiting for the rumoured Busted reunion.
For fans of: The Cloud Nothings and Husker Du
Bloc Party – ‘The Love Within’
The all new Bloc Party tease us with their first new material in three years. With more in common with the Intimacy period, the electronic sound returns to divide their audience. But we think it’s a grower. Welcome back guys.
For fans of: Friendly Fires and Hot Chip
Foxes – ‘Better love’
Southampton’s pop sensation Foxes releases her new single ‘Better Love‘ featuring vocals from Bastille‘s Dan Smith that’s not a million miles away from Ellie Goulding’s collaborations with Calvin Harris, but with a few more tricks up it’s sleeve and personal lyrics about a struggling relationship.
For fans of : Ellie Goulding and Ella Eyre
So there we have it, a mixture of new sounds to sink your greedy teeth into. Enjoy!
