Independentand alternative music is close to our heart. We look at some of the best in new sounds to come into LOTI HQ with this our weekly Noise Box that will sees explore emerging and established artists from all walks of life. Get involved!
LUCERN RAZE | HAPPY ASTRAY
Raw sounding Lucern Raze continues to reel us in with the solid hooks in ‘Happy & Astray’. Bringing an unusual bright sound it puts a twist on the standard gritty garage rock, with clashing guitars and grungy vocals, this is a bangin’ lead track for their new EP and we LOVE it.
HINDS | GARDEN
With surfer rock vibes and garage influences, this Spanish four piece are the girl band of our dreams. ‘Garden’ is the first track to be released from their upcoming album and it’s a real winner. With solid riffs, jangly guitars and sweet harmonies, this is a track suitable for any sunny day in the garden…or well any day really.
HEAVENLY BEAT | INTENT
Heavenly Beat delivers another sparkly but moody track with Intent. It’s a track that takes you cruising quite literally, you feel like you’re just floating along but never want it to end. The synths and soft lyrics guide you on the journey with real depth added from the sax interludes. And we really just wanna know how he does it.
SUBURBAN BIRDS | LOSING YOUR SENSES
Suburban Birds really draw on their roots for this track, and no wonder we’d be losing our senses in Utah desert too…but the brand new indie four piece draws on 60’s dream pop to produce a unique psychedelic indie sound. With laid back lyrics and repetitive riffs ‘Losing your senses’ creates a weirdly magical sound, something only a desert in the middle of nowhere could inspire…
FRIENDS | FRIENDS CRUSH
We’ve also been crushing on our old faves Friends this week, which somehow crept its way back into our audio stream, and we totally forgot how hypnotic it was. With a fresh sound and addictive hooks, this track is still bang on and not leaving our playlists anytime soon.
