Hideous Towns – ‘Undone’

hideous-towns-ep

I’ve been giving Hideous Towns‘ self-titled EP a trashing. You’ve got to hear ‘Undone’! Amazing tune. The Melbourne foursome have been putting in work since delivering their debut single ‘Joy’ at the start of the year. Stream/download the ‘Hideous Towns EP’ here. Oh and, they still win best band bio – “Chris and Ryan are long time pals, nothing sexual, Ashley’s mother was a coworker of Ryan’s so she hooked us up with her little drummer boy, nothing sexual, Alana was recruited from the internet. Nothing sexual”.

The Dagger Complex – ‘Vibrant’ EP

the-dagger-complex-vibrant-ep-artwork

‘Shockwave’ is a fresh dream pop tune by The Dagger Complex, taken from the ‘Vibrant‘ EP. The Chile-based band are off to a flying start after forming in 2013. With swooning guy/girl vocals, euphoric crescendos and catchy melodies, it’s no wonder the five piece have already appeared on the South American music festival stage. Songs like ‘Tremolo Vision Of You’ even sound a little like Dråpe, impressive!

Hideous Towns – ‘Devolution’

Melbourne’s Hideous Towns have cut their teeth playing shows alongside Lowtide, Hollow Everdaze and The Ocean Party. Now the foursome are ready to deliver their debut self-titled EP. The first public tune is ‘Devolution‘ and it’s a gem! An effortless blend of new wave, post punk and dream pop with a casual melody that sinks in deep. Locals can catch the launch show on November 22 at Boney with Contrast, Zig Zag and Bad Family (details here).

Princess – ‘Molly’

princess-band

Amazing single from Dublin dream popper’s Princess. ‘Molly’ is available now, with a fresh video to match! The spacey artwork is a perfect fit for this slow motion tune. It’s an epic listen that drifts into a guitar solo and eventually wanders back. Check out previous singles and an EP from Princess here.

Arc Waves – ‘Half Dome’

Ghost Station Records has released the debut self-titled EP by Arc Waves. The Brooklyn-based foursome (Elaine Lachica, Brandon Jaffe, William McCormack, and Mike Hodges) echo the heyday of 4AD and Factory Records with swooning dream pop mixed with a dash of punk. The lead single ‘Half Dome’ shows off Elaine’s serious vocal chops! Stream the rest here.
