Its only half way through february, but i’ve descovered a lot of new bands over the last few weeks, and i feel like much more people need to know about them.
I discovered most of these through various spotify playlists and reccomendations from the guys at Spillers records in Cardiff!
1. Lets Wrestle
This indie rock trio have been together since 2006, however recently havereleased some new music. Their music is mainly easy to listen to, slow and fairly relaxed. I listen to them mainly on long car drives at night or when just when you just need to throw some music on without thinking about it. I have really high hopes for them!
2. The Bohicas
If Jake Bugg was in a high school rock band, this is what they’d sound like.
This band is, what i would describe as, a grunge rock band from essex. They have a high energy and always seem to speed up your walk. They really deserve more credit and really deserve to be checked out!
If you like them, check out their tour dates for may 2015!
3. Modern Baseball
Modern Baseball are a pop-rock/ indie rock band from Philadelphia. Although they release their first album in 2012, it didn’t really blow up as much as their newest release has.
I think they’re pretty popular between the teen crowd. They seem to capture the socially awkward, awful relationships and social media that teens are surrounded by. They have a pretty similar feel-good vibe to Blink-182 or Sum 41. They deserve a lot more attention as they really seem to put a lot of effort into their music!
4. Years & Years
These guys already have a small following, but I have a feeling they are going to blow up in the next year.
The synth-pop trio Years & Years have been together since 2010, but haven’t seemed to make up until now. Their music is catchy and usually makes you want to dance. Its also strangely unique, dispite having some pop aspects to their music.
5. Bass Drum Of Death
Have i written about them before? I don’t know, but they’re too good to not talk about again.
Bass drum of death aren’t exactly a ‘new’ band, but they do have some new music, and its too good not to put on this list.
Their music probably fits into the garage rock genre, even though it seems to vary! I find it hard to write about this band, probably because its difficult find words to explain them.
Just listen to them. You won’t regret it!
I wasn’t asked/payed to advertise these bands, although that would be nice. This is just my honest opinion on bands I think deserve more credit for what they do!
Thanks for taking the time to read this!
What did you think? Is there anyone i missed? Anyone you want me to review? Drop a comment and i’ll see what I can do!
Until next time!
