Wet Leg – Wet Dream

Wet Leg have become the indie phenomena of 2021. Debut single Chaise Longue crept up on an unsuspecting alt-music world this summer and took over. Wet Dream is another slice of art rock to make you blush and, with it, the Isle of Wight duo’s grip on the music scene remains secure. A bit likeContinue reading “Wet Leg – Wet Dream”

Myles Morgan – Ikywc

Myles Morgan’s influences are vast. On the face of it you could presume he was another gunslinger with a guitar, but ‘Ikywc’ contains a whole breadth of styles. The five-minute track is underpinned by a flute and saxophone jazz symphony while Myles’ vocals are Jeff Buckley singing Jamie T, coming to terms with the factContinue reading “Myles Morgan – Ikywc”

Sprints – How Does The Story Go?

Karla Chubb has no more fucks left to give. She’s simply done, with a partner who sounds quite frankly a bit of a headfuck. And thankfully she’s the frontwoman of Sprints, a band who can muster her up a cutting, chiming post-punk backing of a track to deliver the message to said headfuck that she’sContinue reading “Sprints – How Does The Story Go?”

Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard – You

Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard are the first Cardiff band we’ve featured on Edge of Arcady and, alongside Boy Azooga, are the most exciting alt-rock prospect Wales currently boasts. Since 2019 the four-piece have put out slab after slab of classic 70s glam rock, think T-Rex but written in a house-share in Canton in the 21st century,Continue reading “Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard – You”

Geese – Projector

New York’s next brightest offering comes in the shape of Geese, the US culture capital’s answer to the discordant psychedelic post-rock scene that has given the UK Black Country, New Road and Black Midi. But as could be expected from NYC, their version comes with a more tangible groove. Projector is 4 minutes 25 secondsContinue reading “Geese – Projector”

Cat SFX – Upside Down

On thunderous new single Upside Down, Cat SFX use an Echobelly via The Slits via L7 britpop, punk rock, grunge fusion vehicle to ponder whether it’s wise for a society constantly bombarded with demotivating images 24/7 through smartphone and tv news channels to turn to antidepressants as a first choice pick-me-up. Along with previous singlesContinue reading “Cat SFX – Upside Down”

Fur – Anybody Else But Me

Anybody Else But Me is 60s psychedelic pop, early Beatles, rock’n’roll brought in a technicolour time warp to the 2020s. Replete with ba-ba-bas and hand claps the Brighton group have a knack for an upbeat melody and although the song is essentially about self-doubt it’ll still make you smile and stomp your feet. With aContinue reading “Fur – Anybody Else But Me”

Landfill – Mutiny

Sometimes all you need to make surefire danceable rock’n’roll is guitars, drums and a frontman with an excitable yelp. Thankfully Landfill received the memo and made a band around it. Mutiny shoots and lands somewhere between Buzzcocks and Supergrass. Last year the 2000s alt scene was given the grim name of ‘indie landfill’, this MedwayContinue reading “Landfill – Mutiny”

Snail Mail – Valentine

Behind the moniker, Snail Mail is 22 year old Maryland, USA singer-songwriter Lindsey Jordan. Brand new single Valentine breaks a two year silence after the indie sensation’s debut album Lush landed inside our earholes and is every bit as good. Jordan’s velvety voice spins a tale of doomed love. The melody grows rocky and theContinue reading “Snail Mail – Valentine”

Spector – No One Knows Better

In the early 2000s Supergrass released a line of badges that boasted they were “Your second favourite band”. Twenty years on and Spector could probably proudly boast of holding the same space in every indie music fanatic’s heart. Leading up to the release of third album ‘Now or Whenever’ the acerbic London four piece haveContinue reading “Spector – No One Knows Better”
