Sadly I missed We Are The Ocean playing at The Borderline in Soho earlier this month as it sold out! That doesn’t stop me enjoying their new single, Holy Fire though. It’s a much ‘bigger’ sound than you’d expect from the Loughton rockers (think more 30 Seconds To Mars, less screaming). There’s a nice violin piece and a creepy video featuring gas masks too, so that’s definitely worth checking out:
The band’s new record, ‘Ark’ is out now.
To anyone else who feels as old as I do watching Taking Back Sunday (hey, I was 16 when they first made it into my CD collection..), it’s surprising to see the early-emo starlets still making music, let alone all-grown-up tunes (admittedly, still with the classic TBS sound). Their new single, ‘Better Homes And Gardens‘ deals with the breakup of a marriage, a step forward from the tales of teenage romance that their earlier work focused on.
Watch the video below:
It’s rare to hear such a loud, arena-like sound from a band who have yet to release their debut record, but Sunset Sons appear to have managed it on their new single ‘Medicine’. Good thing too, as they’ll be supporting indie-rock giants Imagine Dragons on their European arena tour later this year.
If this video is anything to go by, the Anglo-Aussie quartet will be filling up arenas of their own in no time..
Check out their tour dates with Imagine Dragons here.
It’s rare to have a song combine teenage angst with summery pop melodies, especially when there’s whistling involved, but somehow Sleeping With Sirens have managed it! The Orlando troupe must have been taking in the sunshine ahead of us in rainy old Britain when they wrote their new single ‘The Strays‘, a softly-told tale of adolescent and belonging.
