SHURAWHITE | LIGHT
We’ve been keeping an eye on Shura for a while, and White Light is testament as to why. Packed full of old school grooves and a subtle R&B edge that blends in with her familiar synth-pop sound, it’s easy to see why Annie Mac just labelled it the ‘hottest track in the world’ right now.
SPELLES | RIB CAGE
Feeling bitter and wronged? We’ve got you covered this week thanks to Rib Cage, a slice of satisfyingly dark and moody pop that feels almost like the kind of track Adele might throw out there if she was on an indie label.
LETTS | EMERALDS
Moving away slightly from our usual vibe, this folk-esque number from Letts caught our attention this week. It’s undeniably influenced by Mumford and Sons, which is no bad thing, imitation is the highest form of flattery and all that. But it has something more, a certain spark, that we can’t quite put our finger on.
MOURN | GETRUDIS, GET THROUGH THIS
The follow-up to the Barcelona-based band’s self-titled debut, Get Through This is a rebellious and unrestrained affirmation of not giving up that refuses to stop to catch it’s breath even once for 2 minutes and 39 seconds. These guys are not to be fucked with, essentially.
THE WALKING WHO | MY FUTURE WIFE
Finishing off this week’s eclectic NOISE BOX is Aussie band The Walking Who, who are back with their latest effort My Future Wife. It’s a blend of alternative influences and distorted vocals that gives it an almost creepy, menacing kind of vibe. Probably the strangest thing we’ve ever written, but we could totally see it being included in an updated, indie version of A Nightmare Before Christmas.
