Stockholm dream pop duo Dream Lake (the clues in the title I guess) are back with a new single, Blueness of the night. The pair, professional dancer and lead vocalist Isabella Svärdstam and multi-instrumentalist and producer Niklas Willar Lidholm have already been releasing their own brand of Beach House / 80s influenced music since 2013. …

Diiv tapped into that wandering soul we all have buried deep down(some deeper than others) back in 2012 when they gave us their big and dreamy debut Oshin. Guitars swelled in waves of reverb, as did pretty much everything else, as Zachary Cole Smith sang songs like he was lost in thought while emoting into the …

Ahead of the Glasgow duos EP ‘Dregs’, out tomorrow (6th November), Tuff Love have shared what could be their most refined track to dates with Carbon. The band, probably not coincidentally, have a handful of live dates starting tonight at Iceland Airwaves in Reykjavik and taking in The Harley here in Sheffield and Dalston Victorian …

Maybe it’s The Lonely Togethers Scottish roots, but there’s something of both the Biffy Clyro and Snow Patrol about them. A mixture of the anthemic and the emotional, if you like. It wrapped up in swathes of guitars and atmospheric backing vocals, aiming to, according to the band themselves “carve(ing) a mysterious path through love …

Go is the debut single from Belfast five piece Pleasure Beach, and far from being something cheap and tacky, and a little passed its best like the name suggests (at least if you’ve been to Blackpool’s said venue) it’s actually a little slab of pulsating, twinkling dream pop. Go trips along, like The a killers …

I wonder how many successful bands have been formed in karaoke bars. I can’t believe it’s many. But that’s exactly where Fine, It’s Pink started life in Romania in 2013 and now they’re releasing their debut single Young Burns (out on 25 September). It’s hard to believe they’ve gone from being a covers band to …

Out this week on Saint Marie Records is the new, third, EP from Italian electronic duo Snow In Mexico, aka Andrea Novelli and Massimiliano Cruciani. Titled Juno Beach, it sits somewhere between the perfect electronic pop of the Pet Shop Boys, with nuances of Indie Pop and M83 somewhere along the way. Think a more …

Swedish dream poppers The Radio Dept. returned, rather unexpectedly last September after a four year absence, with a track, Death to Fascism, just in time (or timed perfectly?) for the Swedish elections. Now they’re back for real, with Occupied, taken from their long awaited fourth album, and available now on 12″ limited edition vinyl and …

A lot of the time these days we’re constantly reminded that yes; guitar music is dead, or no; guitar music isn’t dead. Then we have punky bands like The Vaccines, Palma Violets and Catfish and the Bottlemen that resurrect rock music like Frankenstein’s monster. But I’ve been of the mind that instead of insisting that …

As I sit and listen to Medicine’s newest record Home Everywhere I’m astounded by the fact that they’re still largely seen as an underground band. If I asked the first four people I see if they know who the band Medicine is they would all likely say they have no idea who they are. Sure, …
