No Joy – ‘Moon In My Mouth’

no-joy-more-faithful

No Joy have posted their latest creation, a dreamy slacker pop tune with loads of character called ‘Moon In My Mouth’. There’s a fresh interview that’s waaaay more interesting than my paragraph, so perhaps check that out on Rookie. From the impression of the lead single ‘Everything New‘, (and from the album trailer below), it sounds like No Joy have edged toward poppier/happier songs. Albeit only mildly happier! But either way, they’re not the kind of band that repeats material. I expect that ‘More Faithful’ will be another leap for the Montreal four piece.

Eternal Summers – ‘Together Or Alone’

On June 2 Eternal Summers will release their new album ‘Gold And Stone’ via Kanine Records. The Virginia trio begin proceedings with the indie rocker ‘Together Or Alone’. The fantastic video was directed by Japhy Riddle, a stop-motion animation guru. The single isn’t a big departure for Eternal Summers, but it also doesn’t disappoint, looking forward to hearing more this June.

Mumrunner – ‘End’

Soliti Records are set to release Mumrunner‘s debut EP ‘Full Blossom’ on May 15 featuring the lead single ‘Bond’. The Finland-based rock act have just posted another impressive tune, ‘End’. The foursome successfully blend poppy vocal hooks with a post-hardcore/shoegaze aesthetic. Despite the dreamy vocals and half time chorus, they create a sense of urgency throughout. If ‘End’ lifts your skirt, chances are you’ll love the EP, (I’ve been lucky enough to give it a listen and there’s no filler). Side note, amazingly creepy artwork! It takes a moment to realise what you’re looking at.

Cheatahs – ‘Murasaki’

This is a surprise, just three months after the release of ‘Sunne’, Cheatahs have announced a follow up. On May 4, The London-based four piece will deliver the ‘Murasaki’ EP (via Wichita Recordings). The four tracker is “inspired in part by acclaimed Shikibu novel ‘The Tale Of Genji”, and has a Japanese theme going on, bassist Dean Reid has Japanese heritage after all! Cheatahs continue their tour with The Vaccines this month, before joining No Joy on the road this May (details here).

Shana Falana – ‘Go’

Shana Falana is set to deliver their debut full length ‘Set Your Lightning Fire Free’ on April 7 through Team Love Records. This week ‘Go’ was premiered over at Village Voice (which follows the equally awesome ‘Heavenstay‘). ‘Go’ is a wild and primal beast. Shana Falana know how to make apocalyptic rockers, big enough to put the fear of God into you!
