Warm – ‘Visions Of You’

New York’s Warm are enjoying a huge start to the year. The quintet followed up their 2015 debut EP ‘Pt. 1’ with its successor ‘Pt. 2‘ in January, and have already posted an impressive follow-up single (and video) in ‘Visions Of You’. All of the above releases are worth your minutes. Warm are sounding lush and polished, check out the dramatic visuals below.

Vyva Melinkolya – ‘Vyva Melinkolya’

Kentucky noisemaker Alyc Diaz (aka Vyva Melinkolya) has completed an eclectic self-titled long player featuring the lead tune ‘1:00AM’. The DIY release is full of charm and sincerity, with a sound that fringes psych, shoegaze and dream pop. The album was mastered by Warren Hildebrand (Foxes in Fiction, Orchid Tapes) and is available now. Stream in full below…

Moaning – ‘Tired’

Sub Pop have some fresh signees that are a little shoegazey! Introducing Moaning, a Los Angeles trio who (after ten years of gigging) are really starting to heat up. Moaning have already been compared to Slowdive (one of the their heroes) along with New Order and Broadcast. The slick production is a precursor to their self-titled debut album (out March 2).

Burning House – ‘Tracer’ [EP]

Southampton shoegazers Burning House have delivered their debut EP ‘Tracer‘ featuring the swoony anthem ‘Mercurial’. The British trio set it to ’11’ and don’t let up for 20+ minutes! There’s tremolo rocking guitar madness throughout, which culminates in the epic closer ‘Vague’. In related news, the previously teased full length is also on the way. Their ‘Anthropocene’ LP should be out before the end of the year.

Tapeworms – ‘Medicine’

Enjoy over-the-top noise pop? Tapeworms have you covered! The French three-piece have loads of fun with their latest EP ‘Everything Will Be Fine‘ (out now). It’s refreshing to hear a band take risks and get a little crazy. ‘Medicine’ is decidedly colourful, with angular sounds and nonchalant vocals. The left field group chorus is an interesting touch! It’s an entertaining listen throughout, interludes and all. Jump in…

Maff – ‘Desfile’

Chilean rock foursome Maff return with ‘Desfile’, the lead track from their forthcoming sophomore EP ‘Melañiña’. The tune was premiered over at The Big Takeover, ahead of the EP release on April 2. Maff are sounding rather huge on the recording, which was tracked at Fat Master in Santiago by Eugenio Larrain and producer Victor Schlesinger. Mastering duties were handled by Tomas Stewart and Creation Records founder Joe Foster. The EP is inspired by singer/guitarist Ricardo Gomez’s daughter Augusta (as pictured in the artwork). He notes, “she has been my source of inspiration. This is my gift to her.” Naww!
