Heavenly Beat – ‘Honest’


Heavenly Beat unveils the second single ‘Honest‘ from the forthcoming album ‘Prominence’ (out October 15 through Captured Tracks). The work of John Peña (former Beach Fossils bassist) is easily digestible with light n’ poppy hooks. There’s a whole heap of sounds poking through, is that steel drums too?

High Highs – 'In A Dream'

The harmonic melodies of indie duo High Highs have been ruminating for several years in Brooklyn, but now the Sydney natives have delivered.

Hints – 'Ritual'

The bassline on ‘Ritual’ is the kind that made The Smiths easily danceable, it bounces all over the verse leaving the spacious guitars to stretch out in the peripheral. Influenced by Orange Juice, The Church, and Echo & the Bunnymen, Brooklyn band Hints are on the cusp of delivering their debut EP. ‘Ritual’ opens their first single release ‘Vol. 1‘, available as a free download from Bandcamp.
