Witterings from an old indie kid
This week’s pack of three features three new releases.
HuanHuan – Charlie
Charlie is the first we have heard from Taiwan’s HuanHuan for a couple of years now. And it’s worth the wait as ethereal female vocals forge an alliance with shimmering guitars on an instant shoegaze classic. Flip-side Indiepop is also worth listening too with the vocals sounding a bit like Debbie Harry in places. Which is always a plus! Available from here.
Las Robertas – Together Outrageously
Costa Rica’s Las Robertas were one of the first bands I wrote about on these pages back in 2012. Together Outrageously is the title track from their new EP and is a catchy guitar driven pop-rock track that has plenty of effective hooks and melodies over the course of it’s 2 and a half minutes. Enjoyable stuff as ever from this lot!
The Together Outrageously EP is out today on Rogue Wave Records. Pre-order it here on 7″ and digital formats.
Fragile Animals – Only Shallow//Only More
The new EP from Fragile Animals is full of charming and appealing indie rock songs none more so on opener Melbourne. The voice of vocalist/bassist Victoria Jenkins brings another dimension to the songs which sound pretty much effortless. It’s an entertaining EP and if 1990s inspired songs are your thing then this EP is a must listen. Get it from here.
