Talkie Walkie – ‘Banshee’

banshee-talkie-walkie

French newcomers Talkie Walkie release their impressive debut single today via Freemount Records. I don’t recommend watching the ‘Banshee’ video with a cup of tea, because you’re likely to spit it at your screen! Side note, the video dancer busting moves at 1:39 made my day. Talkie Walkie will release a self-titled album later this year, no doubt with more noise pop gems like this one.

Winter – ‘Pretender’

Like the rest of the music world, Winter are converging on Austin this week for SXSW. The Los Angeles-based foursome released their debut album ‘Supreme Blue Dream’ last month (via Lollipop Records), and it’s well worth checking out! A mix of hazy dream pop, with a sugary twee edge. Lead single ‘Someone Like You’, together with ‘Strange Emotions’ and ‘Pretender’ should convince you. Pick it up here!
