    “Old school soul and r’n’b from the 60s and 70s is what makes our hearts beat faster, it is what makes our heads sing and our abdomens rotate. Soul Music is a timeless force. It speaks to us all; regardless of race, gender and age. We hope to contribute to this amazing heritage. Let us be quite clear; Copenhagen also has soul”.

    WILD PALMS
    Southgate boys Lou Hill, Gareth Jones and James Parish grew up together and formed an early incarnation of the band, Lou then met Darrell Hawkins whilst studying at Brighton University and completed the line-up. Academic duties fulfilled they all moved back to north London en masse and set about recording their acclaimed, post-punk leaning debut Until Spring.

    After its release the band experimented with additional members, contributors and different set ups. After spending a good year developing a sound in this manner, the songs and music that were produced over this period of time were deemed not up to scratch and scrapped. What they had created just wasn’t right. The four men decided that they would record the record themselves to have as little outside influence as possible in order to create as true a reflection of their ideas as possible. They locked themselves away again and fused inspiration from the psych sounds of Silver Apples, the industrial shimmer of Portishead, the leftfield soul-infused hip hop of Madlib and Doom’s Madvillain project, DJ Shadow.

    Five years later, Wild Palms return with the first taste of what’s to come with two new singles – Temper Gold and Ennio – both produced by Liam Howe (Lana Del Rey, FKA Twigs). Temper Gold will be released through One Little Indian Records on March 4th 2016.

    ROSEMARY
    While it’s easy to place Rosemary’s sound in some Great British lineage, there’s far more to this band that slavish adherence to some long-stale ’60s dream. “Sure, we like the Beatles, the Stones,” chatters Jon, “But that’s just the start of it. Bob Dylan, Hank Williams, Woodie Guthrie, Chet Baker…” And just take new single ‘Benjamin’s Ego’. No mere garage-rock ramalama, it commences with Tim’s winding, auld-folk clarion call, and proceeds to twist and turn through coiled passages of snake-charmer melody, bounding Cossack-dance choruses, and strange, tense lyrical melodrama. It’s the sound of a band that have already escaped their pre-destiny, ready to carve out their own path through the English rock scene. Don’t say ‘Thyme For Heroes’ (the band have already heard quite enough herbaceous puns, thanks) – just put their record on, and pledge allegiance to the new sound of the suburbs.

    FLORAL
    Floral, a twinkly instrumental act from California, tread dangerously close to this territory but manage to skirt the borders gleefully. Despite being absurdly technical, there is something carefree in their delivery. In terms of sheer musicianship, Floral’s eponymous EP is a shining star all would be math-rockers should follow dutifully, as every member is impeccable. “Aquarius Theater” bursts out the gate like an eight-legged horse – what a visual – and Floral waste no time administering a ‘show of force’. The remainder of the EP follows suit, and is consistently tight though varying in ferocity. A couple tracks are more peaceful (the latter portion of “Balancing Act” especially) while others are more attention grabbing (“Climbing a Wall”). In fact, “Climbing a Wall” could be one of the most undeniably impressive math ditties of the year. – Sputnik Music

The Northamptonshire singer songwriter’s first effort is a powerful introduction to her unique sound, shaped by her distinctive mix of cultures and upbringing that was naturally embedded in the alternative scene from a young age.

    Drawing influences from the likes of Beck, Eels and Sharon Van Etten, Amaroun’s direction and identify has been very clear from her youth, and an awareness of her sound from a technological and sonic point of view exemplifies the rising star’s undoubted ability.

Fusing together a core of indie, with a vocal style reminiscent of The Hotelier, and the sort of crisp, undistorted guitars usually found in math rock, this four piece from Buckinghamshire’s first effort is an infectious and highly enjoyable release. – Punktastic

    Estrons
    The Bay Rays

    This autumn, DIY is linking up with Estrons and The Bay Rays, two of the country’s brightest and brawniest hopes. The DIY Presents tour kicks off at the tail end of September, taking in twelve dates and bringing the ruckus to every corner of the UK.

    It comes ahead of a start to the year that’s already marked headliners Estrons out as something very special indeed. Where their debut single ‘Make A Man’ and ‘Whoever She Was…’ EP blew minds as 2015 drew to a close, it was left to their instant classic new single ‘Drop’ to crush those chunks of blown brain down into gunpowder and fire them off the roof like fireworks. Make no mistake – this is a group to get giddy over.

    Support comes from The Bay Rays, whose two singles to date – ‘Four Walls’ and ‘New Home’ – have marked them out as a force capable of fusing both candy-coated infectious pop and devastatingly direct grunge with ease.

    ESTRONS
    ESTRONS rip roaring Make A Man scored them spots on Noisey and Best Fit, the latter who praised the band for “raucous riffing and relentless yells”. But the track was so much more than just a whirlwind of frantic guitar lines and pulse-raising vocals. With it, the Welsh quartet flipped female objectification on its head and found themselves getting prime time spins on Radio 1.

    Playing with them is Kent three-piece The Bay Rays. Single New Home is a heavy-hitting cut in classic rocknroll formula that hurtles into a speed guaranteeing destruction but steals exhilaration instead. With a spindly solo riff gunning for another hit of the hook, it’s deliciously addictive.

As the long-haired lotharios’ stunning five-way harmonies and lackadaisical grooves pulse and smoulder into the Purple Turtle’s very brickwork, it’s clear that we’re watching a band blessed with a total mastery of their craft. A real treat” – Kerrang

    “Take the Allman Brothers, put Ray Manzarek on keyboards and layer the whole gumbo with CSN&Y style vocals; then play psychedelic tinged West Coast Rock” – 247

    Based in Brooklyn, NY, all four members are originally from Austin, Houston and Buna, Texas. The band formed in Brooklyn when Vanessa, who had only been learning to play drums for two months, met Elizabeth at a show in New York, and the two decided to try playing together. Soon after that Elizabeth enlisted her friend of 20 years, Sam and then Vince.
    They wrote their first song ‘First Date’ within one hour of practice as a 4-piece, and decided at that point to officially form WALL.

    MOZES & THE FIRSTBORN
    Talented garage rock bands coming up through the Burger Records farm system are a dime a dozen these days. But something about Mozes and the Firstborn sticks out like a sore but lovable thumb. Perhaps it’s the fact that this fearsome foursome hails from that great rock mecca of Eindhoven, the Netherlands. Or that they’re obsessed with animated Disney film Prince of Egypt. Or that the songs on their self-titled debut tremble with the heady psych-pop energy of the Brian Jonestown Massacre (“Peter Jr.” and “Party Crasher Extended”) and the catchy, head-banging hooks of Ty Segall (“Time’s a Headache” and “Gimme Some”). Even those easy comparisons fall flat in the face of intoxicating shout-alongs like “I Got Skills,” paisley-patterned ballads like “Skinny Girl,” and acid-washed synapse-snappers like “Heaven.” And the swaggering “Seasons”? It’s a dark-horse early candidate for Best Song of 2014. Mozes and the Firstborn possess everything a young band could want: instrumental chops, stylistic diversity, a sense of humor and a dynamic frontman in Melle Dielesen. Sure is exciting to see the sky as the only limit for these Dutchmen. – Orlando Weekly
