NEW SINGLE | Wozniak - Twin Sirens

With a brooding new single, a forthcoming new EP, a brand new bass player, working with Simon Scott from Slowdive and teetering on the cusp of their first vinyl release, mighty Edinburgh-based noise merchants 'Wozniak' have emerged from the shadows to shine a veritable sonic light on the opening act of 2019. 'Twin Sirens' is the first track to be lifted from a brand new EP entitled 'The Space Between The Tress', penned in for official release on February 9th 2019 via the good folks over at Morningside Young Team Records.

The band are made up of Simon Cuthbert-Kerr - guitar, Sarah Cuthbert-Kerr - guitar/vocals, John Sinclair - drums & Kevin Fraser - bass.

NEW SINGLE | Fawns Of Love - December

ICYMI: The wonderful 'Fawns Of Love' released their third and final single entitled 'December' from their brand new & highly anticipated long player via Test Pattern Records called 'Permanent', penned in for release on the 18th January and available to pre-order right now from fawnsoflove.bandcamp.com. Just incase you've been living under a rock for the past while, Joseph & Jenny Andreotti have been unleashing some stunning music over the past few years to burgeoning world-wide applause from both fans and peers alike. With a hint of 80's chic, some shoegaze highlights and lashings of synth led dream-pop, their song writing prowess has gone from strength to strength.

'December' dances into the ether trapped in a sequence of pounding kick drum hits, trembling lines of guitar and swells of beautifully entrancing synth. Jenny's ethereal vocal lines come into view, swimming in a sea of reverb that catches her tone perfectly, gently melding it with those glistening swirls of reverb to collectively envelope the entire mix. Reminiscent at times to 80's sounding New Order colliding with the ethereal qualities of the Cocteau Twins, 'December' only whets the appetite for whats to come on the full album.

NEW SINGLE - Burning House - Mirror Song - Featured Image - (700x700)

NEW SINGLE | Burning House - Mirror Song

Another one of our favourite bands here at Primal Music, Southampton-based heavy alt-gazers 'Burning House' have unleashed a blistering new track entitled 'Mirror Song' via their bandcamp page. This impressive trio create blissed out noisy infusions layered with melody driven song structures all melded with a dreamy kind of melancholy that is both infectious and addictive all at once. This latest single follows on from their melody driven August 2018 released track 'Peach', which we've covered here for the blog and is available as a two track release over on the bands bandcamp page. You can get your muggy paws on it right now via burninghouse.bandcamp.com

'Mirror Song' surges into the ether on soaring waves of guitar as angry fuzzed out reflections ride busy percussion and the pull of bass sends shivers down the spine. Vocally brilliant, this track oozes confidence as it dips and glides through clouds of fizzing reverberations and those ear pummelling lead lines instil a kind of scary melody over proceedings. We can hear MBV, Dinosaur Jr and the driving fuzz of shoegaze stalwarts Swervedriver all over this one. It's another super sonic gem!

Utterly Delicious!

NEW SINGLE - Fawns Of Love - Mournful Eyes - Featured Image - (700x700)

NEW SINGLE | Fawns Of Love - Mournful Eyes

Seemingly unable to put a foot wrong these days, the sublime Californian-based husband and wife team 'Fawns Of Love' have ushered in another sizzling slice of modern tinged dream-pop in the guise of their latest single 'Mournful Eyes', the second single to be lifted from their highly anticipated long player entitled 'Permanent', penned in for release in 2019 via Test Pattern Records.

NEW SINGLE - Hanford Reach - Winston Smith - Featured Image - (700x700)

NEW SINGLE | Hanford Reach - Winston Smith

Brooklyn-based psychonauts 'Hanford Reach' haven't been on our radar since late 2017 when we covered their then released 'Caught My Mind' single. Formed back in late 2016 following the dissolution of a previous incarnation called 'Sky Picnic', 'Hanford Reach' are Chris Sherman and Leah Cinnamon. They create a marvellous blend of melodious neo-psych, subtle flurries of shoegaze, post-punk and staggered alternative leanings that collectively swell and fall brilliantly through layers of immense reverberation. This latest dystopian hued single entitled 'Winston Smith' is a very busy one indeed, rattling on a bedrock of rolling percussion with swells of synth and cascading lines of bass in close orbit. It's wailing guitars follow that typically magnificent Hanford Reach styled vocalisation through a fantastic song structure that's ebbed with oodles of impressive melody.

'Winston Smith' is a wonderful return to form by a band who have been away from the scene for far too long.

Austin-based dream-gaze quartet Blushing have been very busy since the release of their impressive 'Weak' EP back in January 2018. Not only have the band been picked up by Austin-based 'The Nothing Song Records' but they've returned with a beautiful new double a-side single entitled 'The Truth b/w Sunshine'. The single was officially released back on October 26th and it was recorded, mixed and produced by Elliott Frazier of 'Ringo Deathstarr' fame. These latest tracks display a definite growth for Blushing, highlighting a audible maturity in both songwriting & song structuring, allowing the band to experiment more with melody and sonic attack. 'The Truth b/w Sunshine' is a precursor to the bands highly anticipated full length debut album penned in for release sometime in early 2019.

NEW SINGLE - Fawns Of Love - Someday - Featured Image - (700x700)

NEW SINGLE | Fawns Of Love - Someday

Hot on the heels of the recent release of their 'Part Time Punks Session', their signing to 'Test Pattern Records' and the subsequent announcement of a full length sophomore release in early 2019 comes the latest single entitled 'Someday' from one of our favourite modern dream-pop outfits 'Fawns Of Love'. With a hint of 80's chic, some shoegaze highlights and lashings of synth led dream-pop, Joseph & Jenny Andreotti have been unleashing some stunning music over the past few years to burgeoning world-wide applause from both fans and peers alike. This latest single highlights the bands impressive rise and their constant evolution as they prepare to release new music with the backing of a record label.

'Someday' pulses on a sequenced pad of soothing synth, electronic percussion filled with off-kilter bongo hits and the constant pitter patter of hi-hats. Bouncing bass frequencies hum and cascade through layers of blissful reverb, shimmering ambience and subtle lines of guitar twinkle just below the mix allowing Jenny Andreotti to show us all just how good her vocal prowess actually is. 'Someday' is the first track to be lifted from their forthcoming new album and we reckon it's a doozie! It was officially released via 'Test Pattern Records' on October 5th 2018 can get your hands on it right now to buy/download from fawnsoflove.bandcamp.com

NEW SINGLE - Corasandel - Blenefill - Featured Image - (700x700)

NEW SINGLE | Corasandel - 'Blenefill' b/w 'We Play Forever'

Lincoln natives 'Corasandel' have been bringing some serious refreshment to the underground music scene as of late. Not happy with just floating what could be one of the best singles this year to date with their June 2018 released track 'Diving', now the band are unleashing a blissed out slice of experimental shoegaze entitled 'Blenefill' deftly permeated with a kind of shimmering, ambient hued folkiness. It's backed up brilliantly with another super sonic gem, the fantastically titled 'We Play Forever', a washed out wall of tie-dyed resonance steeped in reverb that pulses reverently alongside floating vocalisations, the pull of those subtle lead lines and the wavering swells of synth. The pitter patter of slow moving percussion hovers atop of humming bass frequencies here too eagerly directing the listener into it's massive pools of effervescent atmosphere. Both tracks are perfect for these melancholic autumn evenings.

'Blenefill' gets it's full release on September 27th 2018 and is available to buy/download right now via corasandel.bandcamp.com

New Single - The Hear Todays - Umbrellas - Featured Image - (700x700)

NEW SINGLE | The Here Todays - Umbrellas

Originally hailing from Joensuu, Eastern Finland, 'The Hear Todays' create a hazy melding of simmering shoegaze with soaring fuzz and an undercurrent of post-punk that is completely saturated with oodles of dreamy melody. The quartet draw influences from their adventures in modern life to spin impressive reverb drenched sonic sensibilities that are distinctly evident on their immense debut single 'Umbrellas'. The track charges into the ether on waves of blissed out guitars and driving percussion as cascading lines of bass meander underfoot collectively carrying that impressive dream-pop inspired vocal line. With more music on the way from them this year we reckon 'The Hear Todays' are ones to watch going forward.
