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..

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’.

Ash – Free

To be honest, I didn’t even know that Ash were still going, but after hearing their surprisingly soft new single, ‘Free’, I wish I had kept more of a track on them. It may not have the energy of their early hits (we can’t be expecting ‘Girl From Mars‘ again, can we?), but this is the sound of a band who’ve reached their prime and know exactly how to write a great song.

I seriously suggest that you check this out now:

Storm The Sky – Alive

Hailing from Melbourne, six piece Storm The Sky channel elements of Bring Me The Horizon with heavy metal undertones. The band have just released their self-funded debut record, ‘Permanence‘, having built a following in their native Australia through relentless touring since forming in 2013.

Check out their video for ‘Alive‘ below:

Taking Back Sunday – Better Homes And Gardens

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.

Radio On – You’re Always Right

It’s starting to feel like summer here, and I’ve been rinsing through my guilty pleasures collection. It must be the sunshine that always puts me in the mood for a good, happy tune.

Rather than risk someone catching me with an old 90s classic in my headphones though, London four-piece Radio On make radio-friendly, danceable music without a hint of potential embarrassment. Drawing influences from 70s indie-rock, their new single ‘You’re Always Right‘ should definitely be the soundtrack to your day, whether its chilling in a park, or just blocking out the world on your daily commute..
