BRANDONFLOWERS | CAN’T DENY MY LOVE
The best of this weeks NOISE BOX comes from The Killers frontman Brandon Flowers, who is gearing up to launch his highly anticipated second solo album. Lead single Can’t Deny My Love could have easily been ripped straight from Haim’s Days Are Gone due mostly to its undeniable 80s rock and 70s disco influences that bring with them a subtle, but thoroughly welcome pop sensibility.
SAFARI GOLD | HOWL
Next up we have indie-pop anthem Howl courtesy of Welsh four-piece Safari Gold, which is a blissful sun-kissed gift to our ears here at LOTi during this abnormally chilly March, thanks to its trippy celestial vibe and glaring similarities to The 1975.
GAPS | ALL ME ALL YOU
Fresh from releasing an EP last year, Gaps are back with new single All Me All You and a new album which is due in May. The track, which has a vibe which we think would have had more of an impact as an autumnal release, shines brightest during its hypnotic, reverb-packed chorus that’s only matched by the track’s gloriously simply outro.
HOOKWORMS | RETREAT
Taken from their Pitchfork-lauded 2014 album The Hum, Retreat pulls influence from both the pop and punk genres and blends them together to create one of the band’s catchiest efforts so far that climaxes in a rebellious balls-to-the-wall finale that begs to be heard in a live setting.
PINKSHINYULTRABLAST | RAVESTAR SUPREME
Released on Monday (March 30), Ravestar Supreme sees Pinkshinyultrablast continuing their brand of ethereal vocals and subtly rebellious waves and basslines. It is a beast which unearths a mountainous shoegaze rage in a dream like state and it is EPIC!
