It’s Friday, and Friday means new music. To some it means the start of the weekend but either way, new music is mission critical. So, as always, here is State’s pick of the new tracks and those which might have slipped under the radar. We have something synth-y, something new, slow and guitar-y, and something blue. Enjoy!
Milky Chance – ‘Down By The River’
Everybody loves bluesy German alternative post-folk. Everybody.
Movement – ‘Like Lust’
Described as nocturnal, seductive and lucid, this track is all of the above and more; it’s almost sweating.
Tiz McNamara – ‘Hold On’
Liverpool based Corkman sets his sights on bigger things.
Kitten – ‘Why I Wait’
Lo-fi electro pop from LA.
Florrie – ‘Seashells’
25-year old UK based polymath provides living proof that drummers are in fact useful.
Handsome Handsome – ‘So I Can Remember’
Harmonies, check. Infectious guitar hook, check. Summer is nearly here.
Joas as Police Woman – ‘Holy City’
Some uplifting stuff from Joan Wasser.
Ellie Herring – ‘Dynasty’
Minimalist challenge to James Blake’s throne.
Baby Baby – ‘Keep On Dancing’
Self-apppoited party punks from Atlanta create catchy chaos and then quickly flee the scene…
Francobollo – ‘Steven Hawkins’
…but this giddy, spiky fun from Swedish rockers should keep you going.
Tut Tut Child & Splitbreed – ‘Groupies’
London producer Tut Tut Child teams up with Splidbreed and the results are frenetic, scorching bass music, who’d have imagined?
Scary People – ‘Crush The Bug’
With a band name like this, and a song title like that, you can only get one thing.
True (Mercury remix) – ‘Videos’
Lush electronic music from mysterious Swiss duo is given life by Mercury’s gifted hand.
Canopy Climbers – ‘Blindfold’
Little Rock, Arkansas’ second most notable export discharge another gem.
Coldplay – ‘Magic’
This track may not exactly break new ground but it’s arguably their best in donkey’s years.
