Reckless Love – Monster

I might be busy these days, but I definitely couldn’t miss this ferocious track from my favourite Scandinavian rockers, Reckless Love. ‘Monster‘ is taken from the band’s new album, InVader, full of 80s inspired glam rock, reimagined with youthful energy and their usual upbeat spin.

Watch the video below, and don’t forget, you can catch them on tour in the UK this month!

Reach – Tell Me (Acoustic)

Normally I’d be a little wary of a band who’s members have appeared in certain ‘talent’ shows, but apparently the musical quality in Scandinavia’s reality tv is a bit better than ours!  That’s why I’m not ashamed to admit I’m a big fan of Sweden’s REACH, whose guitarist appeared in ‘Swedish Idol’ in 2014.

If you’re not as convinced as I am, this lovely acoustic version of their single ‘Tell Me’ should do a lot to reassure you..

IDestroy – Vanity Loves Me

Hey folks, sorry for the long silence! I’ve been busy running round London looking for the best new music to bring to you, and I’m back with some fresh punk-esque tunes, courtesy of Bristol three-piece IDestroy.

The trio have just released their DIY video for ‘Vanity Loves Me‘, and its a good one. Check it out below..

Reckless Love – Keep It Up All Night

Finland’s ‘hottest’ exports, Reckless Love are back! If you’re not as excited as I am, you should be, because their new track ‘Keep It Up All Night‘ is another of their ear-worming heavy-rock party-anthem specials (and breathe..). Shake out that hairspray, put on your best leathers and get dancing..

Creeper, The Old Blue Last 

On Wednesday I was lucky enough to see Southampton horror rockers Creeper perform at possibly the last tiny show they’ll ever do, for The Callous Heart EP launch. 

With the sounds of Jim Steinman’s Teenager In Love, the band wore their matching jackets as they took their place on the stage. 

Tearing through track after track, the band finished with a heartfelt Love In Decline. They were called back to the stage though, for a final rendition of Novena.

Alberta Cross – Ghost Of Santa Fe

The James-Franco-approved southern rock enthusiasts, Alberta Cross (incredibly, from New York and not the deep south) are streaming their new single, Ghost Of Santa Fe, taken from their self-titled new album. Now I don’t pretend to be an expert on this kind of music, what with living in south-United Kingdom instead (although I have watched my fair share of Nashville..), but there’s a lot worse you could do with your time than settle down and give this band a listen..

Venrez – Children Of The Drones

US hard rockers Venrez like to mix a little psychedelica into their exploration of American foreign policies, which, of course, is never a bad thing.. Who said the younger generations aren’t interested in politics? Someone should have a word with them. In the meantime, you should definitely check out the below lyric video for the band’s new single, ‘Children Of The Drones’.

Love ‘n’ fluff ‘n’ stuff

Frank Turner – Mittens

Good old Frank Turner, you know what to expect from him, a mix of lovelorn and happy-go-lucky tune, epitomised in the title of his new full length, ‘Positive Songs For Negative People‘. His new single, ‘Mittens‘ tells the story of a mismatched relationship that Frank tries his best to maintain. You might as well listen now, because you’ll be singing along to it for at least the next six months…

City Of Thieves – Incinerator

Major festivals aside, summer is always a quiet time for music, so its a little hard to find something decent to bring you.. However, this week I’ve managed to find something that might be hard, but is definitely not quiet (you’ll see what I did here if you listen to it)!

City Of Thieves made their live debut at Camden Rocks Festival back in May, but judging by their music, they’ll have plenty more shows to come. The band are about to release their Incinerator EP in September, after performing at Bloodstock and Planet Rock Rockstop.

Long live rock’n’roll, eh?

Bullet For My Valentine – Army Of Noise

You can tell its post-Download festival when the heavy releases start again. Case-in-point, metal heroes Bullet For My Valentine have released a stream of the awesome ‘Army Of Noise‘ track, taken from their new album ‘Venom‘, which is out next month. Now I might be wrong, but I’m pretty sure there’s a tour with that too..

Listen listen listen!
