Seeing Hands – ‘It’s True’

seeing-hands-its-true

‘It’s True’ is a jangly earworm courtesy of Newcastle’s Seeing Hands. It’s the foursome’s second single (following ‘I Knew You’), and was produced by Alex Greaves and mastered by Brian Lucey (Arctic Monkeys, The Black Keys, The Shins). This dreamy psych popper has already been praised by DIY, BBC 6 Music and XFM. Seeing Hands are all set for a bright 2017 with a debut release.

Burning House – ‘Mercurial’

burning-house-mercurial

Southampton shoegazers Burning House have dropped their latest anthem ‘Mercurial’; a crowd pleaser that works up to a suitably swoony end. Earlier in the year we heard Burning House’s ‘If You Won’t‘ (from their upcoming ‘Anthropocene’ LP). BUT… I believe an evolution has occurred since then and plans are now directed toward an EP called ‘Tracer’. Whatever happens, it’s sounding like its headed in the right direction.

Purs – ‘Girl In Love’

purs-girls-in-love

‘Girl In Love’ is a fun shoegaze/punk/psych crossover tune; courtesy of North London’s Purs (as premiered by Silent Radio). The group formed from the solo work of guitarist Andy Becker, who is joined by Serra Petale (guitar/vocals), Kris Proshovski (guitar), Mattias Bhatt (drums), and Mandi Goodier on bass. Purs made their first appearance on the ‘Hide And Psych’ comp with a cover of Autolux’s ‘Here Comes Everybody’; also worth a listen. Blak Hand Records are hitting the The Independent Label Market at Old Spitalfields Markets this weekend with a handful of limited transparent tapes – get involved Londoners! \m/

Dayflower – ‘Big Blue’

dayflower-neverfriend

Leicester shoegaze act Dayflower have posted several impressive singles over the past few months. Most recently on the Edils Records double a-side ‘Neverfriend / Seeing Up‘ and earlier on ‘Big Blue’. The four piece have been at it since 2013, and have so far enjoyed airplay on BBC, attention from FatCat Records, and shows alongside Gulp and Pinkshinyultrablast. One to watch.

British dream pop act Danxia have delivered their debut self-titled EP. The Warrington quartet make it sound effortless on the harmonic opener ‘Warm Rain’, and the single ‘Closer‘. ‘Dislocated Minute’ is a little more abstract; perfect for late night listening. Stream in full below.
