Presents For Sally – ‘Wishawaytoday’

presents-for-sally-wishawaytoday-artwork

Presents For Sally deliver ‘Wishawaytoday‘, a fresh 7inch single that precedes the release of their new album ‘Colours & Changes’ (out later this year via Saint Marie Records). ‘Wishawaytoday’ is a sunny rocker with a 90s twee feel and a noisy edge. The 7inch is backed by the b-side ‘Hits Like Kisses’ which begins like a lullaby, and ends with a white hot, wall of sound! Presents For Sally formed in the late noughties and have since been praised by BBC Radio 1, Drowned In Sound, XFM and The Sound Of Confusion.

Today Perth rock act Hyla delivered their second EP ‘Fever Calls Late’, a well balanced collection of psych n’ shoegaze.

In a short space of time Hyla have matured into a well rounded band, capable of dizzying rock numbers (‘The Thousands’ / ‘Come Find Us’), trippy psych (‘Fever Calls Late’), as well as dreamy lo-fi tunes (‘Wiser Way’). Grab a download here or stream in full below.

Mutes – ‘Holy Terror’

Mutes ‘Holy Terror’ is a reverb rocker that comes out swinging before drifting into a dream state half way through. It’s a raw, uncompromising introduction to their second EP ‘Starvation Age’ (which is out next week, June 29). The UK quartet began as a solo project and spawned a self-titled EP last May. The upcoming five track collection ranges from rock to ambient and maintains the loveable, lo-fi aesthetic of their debut. ‘Starvation Age’ is available for pre-order (on digital or cassette) via One Note Forever.
