tracks of the week #70

If there is one thing I love more than anything it is new music which is probably why being a music blogger is a pretty decent fit for me but regardless of that, there is no greater feeling in life for me than finding a new band or hearing a new track and instantly loving it and spending the rest of the night listening to the band’s back catalogue. That is what has happened here with a couple of the bands which are new discoveries, while the other two tracks are new releases from some of my favourites. I hope you enjoy!

Cut Ribbons – Walking On Wires

Now if you’ve been reading my blog for a while you will know that I absolutely love Cut Ribbons. After catching them supporting Thumpers earlier this year, they quickly became one of my favourite new bands of 2014. The band have recently released this new track online and it has already been picked up Clash Magazine with them naming it their Track of the Day earlier this month. With beautiful, soaring vocal harmonies, swirling guitar moments, a prominent bass, steady rhythm and a ridiculously catchy indie pop melody, this is yet another great track from the Welsh five piece. ‘Walking On Wires’ is the lead single from Cut Ribbons soon to be released EP ‘Sail’, due to release on October 20th.

Gengahr – Powder

Looking for some lo-fi indie with a dreamy chillout vibe and nostalgic undertone, then this track could be for you. Making the rounds on the likes of Clash Music and plenty of music blogs, these guys are one of the current buzz bands on the internet that is quite obvious and it is understandable why with a great sound and this impressive single which is due for release late October. The band are on tour now supporting Darlia if you want to catch them in some tiny venues across the UK [dates here] which is probably advisable to get in there now before these guys get super popular.

Fall Out Boy – Centuries

Yeah, we all know I love Fall Out Boy, like seriously huge level of love for my emo loves so I was obviously going to feature their new track at some point. I have three things to say about this: 1) catchy as hell [as usual], 2) it’s pretty dark and sinister and a bit sexy and I love that and 3) Patrick Stump, you’re voice forever impresses me! I love having FOB back in my life!

Club Smith – No Friend of Mine

Scuzzy riffs, attitude running throughout the vocals, pounding drums beats, heavy yet melodic guitar and a wonderful take on indie which reminds me of some of my favourite acts from 2004-2008. I found this track while I was just browsing through Spotify’s Discover section and with gems like this being thrown my way on the regular I will have plenty of great tracks and artists to bring your way all the time. Keep an eye on these guys because they are great and expect to see the popping up on here again very soon.
