NEW SINGLE | Burning House - Mimosa

It's turning out to be quite the year for Southampton's 'Burning House'. The trio have recently signed to Yumi And The Weather’s label - MIOHMI RECORDS, have just released a new single (their first on the aforementioned label) and there is also talk of a debut full length release this summer? That's some achievement for band who first tweaked our attention back in 2017 with their then debut single 'If You Won't'.  Steeped in noisy shoegaze with a splattering of alternative led noise-rock and subtle splashes of experimentation, 'Burning House' have a plethora of influential sonic strands coursing through their veins with comparisons been made to Swervedriver, Jesus & Mary Chain and shoegaze stalwarts RIDE. The band have also shared the live stage with Moon Duo, Shonen Knife, Is Bliss and Kagoule. Comprising of Aaron Mills - guitar/vocals, 
Patrick White - bass & Dominic Taylor - drums, 'Burning House' are definitely ones to watch this year.

NEW SINGLE - Velvet Tides - Into Light - Featured Image - (700x700)

NEW SINGLE | Velvet Tides - Into Light

Birmingham-based hazy post-gaze quartet 'Velvet Tides' have just unleashed their impressive debut single entitled 'Into Light' to the music masses. Formed back in 2018, this promising band meld subtle alternative led shoegaze sensibilities with the wistful ambient tinged swirls of dream-pop and an overriding pulse of post-punk to good effect, instilling instant instrumental reminisces of 'For Against, Slowdive, The Swirlies & early Starflyer 59'. The band are made up of Luke Marvin - guitar/vocals, Josh Hale - bass, Caleb Keenan - lead guitar & Brandon Moss - drums.

'Into Light' merges out of a reverberating sonic fog as swirling guitars and the twinkle of golden melody merge into one sonic pulse. Beautiful lines of hazy vocalisations stream into view, hovering blissfully on the hum of bass, all collectively strapped to that driving percussive assault and peppered by intricate lines of lead guitar. We're pulled along with the track from the off until that sublime break used us out into the ether and we fall headlong into a magnificent track finale. Wonderfully constructed and deeply entrancing, 'Velvet Tides' are a breath of fresh air.

With a busy year of recording ahead, we can't wait to hear what comes next!

To say that there's a lot going on inside this latest single from Lincolnshire-based duo 'Corasandel' is an understatement.

NEW SINGLE - Corasandel - Unison Mix - Featured Image - (700x700)

NEW SINGLE | Corasandel - Unison Mix

Back in June 2018, 'Diving' - the then debut single Lincoln-based writing/producing partnership of Jimmy Osborne and Mark Merrifield aka 'Corasandel' absolutely blew us away here at Primal Music. The single hit us square in the face (from way out of left-field) and if we had of compiled a 'Best Single Of 2018' list it would have graced our top 3 without any hesitation as it was really that good. The band then followed up their debut single with the deeply melancholic 'Blenefill' before promptly disappearing into the Lincolnshire Wolds in the remote East of England to record their highly anticipated debut five track EP 'All The Hours Are One'. The final mixes of those recording sessions are now bearing fruit with the release of the bands brand new single entitled 'Unison Mix'. The EP is penned in for official release on April 26th 2019 and is available to pre-order with the lead single 'Unison Mix' a direct download right now via corasandel.bandcamp.com

'Unison Mix' begins with a flourish of turbulent frequencies before launching into a swirling cloud of effervescent reverb. Slow moving percussion keeps a steady backbeat as the constant throb of bass frequencies meander just below the mix. Soaring guitars hover elegantly over an ambient strewn landscape, carefully enveloping that fragile vocal line, as the track glides through hazy passages of shoegaze brilliantly infused with beautifully entrancing post-rock inspired instrumentation. 'Unison Mix' is an impressive return to form by a band on the rise.
