It’s apt that we get a new single from London four piece TELEGRAM almost a year on from when we first got the see them live at The Great Escape in Brighton. Back with a retro-tastic blast of psych pop they hit us smack in the face with new single ‘Aeons‘ due to be released on their own Gram Gram label on the 10th of July 2015. Keep an eye out for these at Field Day too peeps.
LITTLE WHITE THINGS | STEP BACK
It’s more psychedelic indie pop but with MGMT and Of Montreal in mind with London band LITTLE WHITE THINGS. ‘Step Back’ is their debt single, the melodic beats of which draw you in while that vocal melody really locks this track in to your head. Lush production too. We’ll be keeping an eye on these.
COMMUNIONS | SUMMER OATH
The second time COMMUNIONS have made it in the weekly playlist, this being their seconds track ‘Summer’s Oath‘, taken from their new EP out in June later this year. Summer’s Oath is a Joy Divison-esque pop anthem lost in an 80’s swirl that see’s the Copenhagen quartet shine in the doom pop dream they immerse themselves in. Dig it.
HIPPO CAMPUS | SUICIDE SATURDAY
Minnesotan boys HIPPO CAMPUS are new signings to legendary indie label Transgressive Records set to release their debut EP ‘Bashful Creatures’. The play infectious, joyful and thematically soaked indie pop that is sweeter than a summer breeze. After talk got round from their performance at SXSW they were booked to play live on Conan O’Brien’s television show with single ‘Suicide Saturday’. They’ve get to hit legal drinking age! Also at TGE this weekend.
