Alt Rock, indiepop, Shoegaze, Synth pop

Another Bunch of Five!


The Churchhill Garden – Reality

The latest collaboration between Swiss-based Andy Jossi and Krissy Vanderwoude over in the states takes me by surprise given its intensity. It’s an in your face 1990’s inspired alternative/indie track with tinges of shoegaze. It’s a bit like Lush circa Lovelife. And that’s no bad thing. Reality is available digitally from here.

Bathe Alone – Limbo

Georgia’s (yay Georgia!) Bathe Alone explore 1980’s synth-pop on the final single to be lifted from their forthcoming album Last Looks. Limbo is a moody track with a retro analogue synth sound complete reverb and layers of depth. Get it from here.

English Summer – The Aisle

The Aisle is the first track to be taken from English Summer’s forthcoming debut album The Wedding. The track gives a nod to both the album and track titles as it’s an instrumental track that sounds like chiming church bells. It’s obviously a concept album and I have to wonder if there is going to be a track dealing with being jilted at the altar! Grab it from here.

Sicayda – Deeper In

Deeper In, by Toronto’s Sicayda, is the first single to be taken from their forthcoming self-titled EP. Whilst I think about when bands started lifting singles from EPs give this noisy alt-rock track, that mixes in shoegaze and grunge, a listen and blow those November blues away. Play loud!

The Reds, Pinks & Purples – Let’s Pretend We’re Not in Love

Let’s face it. If you are a fan of The Reds, Pinks & Purples there is not much more I can do to describe their sound suffice to say Let’s Pretend We’re Not in Love is another finely crafted indiepop tune. However, somewhat contradicting myself, if you listen to the flip side there is more going on. Summer at Land’s End is another one of those instrumental, soundtrack style pieces that have started appearing on their records. It’s a beautiful, shimmering piece. Sadly unlike the real Land’s End which is now a national disgrace #rant
