Introducing: Dog, Paper, Submarine

Well indie Wednesday has coming rolling round again, and this time there’s one band that just can’t be ignored.. Dog, Paper, Submarine might have you wondering what on earth actually links those words together (could they be more similar in the band’s native Swedish? I don’t know), but their noise pop sound is much less confusing and definitely quite enjoyable.

The three piece have just released their self-titled EP, which is available on Bandcamp for a mere £2.50 (and right after payday as well!). Have a listen below..

Introducing: MOVIE

Blurring the lines between the art-rock tendencies of Franz Ferdinand and the upbeat catchiness of Vampire Weekend, Brit-pop band MOVIE have certainly put their art college years to good use with their striking new video for ‘Ads‘. The band have already picked up some great support from Radio 1, 6music and XFM, with their single launch party hitting London’s Old Blue Last this Wednesday.

Don’t miss out, have a listen below!

Monument Valley – Tattooed Fists

Bit of an unusual one for you guys tonight.. Londoner Ned Younger, bettter known as Monument Valley, has created a unique video for his new single ‘Tattooed Fists‘ inspired by the Canadian TV show ‘Night Walk’. Think a more stripped down version of The Streets, with indie undertones. Great stuff!

Tattooed Fists‘ is taken from Monument Valley’s debut album ‘Walking On Skin‘, out June 9.

Hannah Georgas – Enemies

Here’s a lovely chilled on to get you through that post-bank holiday blues. Vancouver’s own indie-pop songstress, Hannah Georgas has just released a video for her new single ‘Enemies‘, taken from her self-titled new album.

Introducing: Moral Panics

Stoke’s indie favourites Moral Panics certainly have their artistic credentials sorted, with their members doubling as clothing designers, novel writers and film makers. Luckily their other projects hasn’t had a detrimental effect on the band’s sound, with their latest EP ‘WLVS‘ sounding like a cross between early Foals and Swim Deep at their mellowest.

With features on BBC Introducing and support slots with the likes of Dog Is Dead, it looks like 2014 might be the year for these guys to finally break out..

Polly Scattergood – Subsequently Lost

Ok, so I know this isn’t strictly rock music.. However, a) Polly Scattergood is definitely a rock chick at heart and b) its indie Wednesday anyway (yes, I did just make that up). Go on, let’s pretend we’re in Skins, since this track wouldn’t feel out of place there, (in the older, better series’ of course) and have a little disco wherever you might be. Unless you’re in public, in which case, maybe wait a bit.

Anyway, I highly recommend you have a listen to this lovely little gem of an electro-pop track ‘Subsequently Lost’, which I’m sure will be featuring on your teen drama of choice sometime soon..

Polly’s new album, ‘Arrows‘, featuring the single is out now.

Goodbye Channel – Foreva

Enjoying the nice summery weather? (No, I haven’t either, but its been nice to look at through the window all the way across the office, eh?). If you’re stuck indoors like me, this new track, ‘Foreva’ from Leed’s own Goodbye Channel might be just what you need. Turn it up, close your eyes and pretend you’re lying in a field at Bestival (or your summer festival of choice). Instant bliss.
