14/7/17 New Release Roundup

Sloan Peterson – Rats: The new single from Sydney based musician Sloan Peterson is a great piece of indie pop, following up her last single ‘105’ with another punchy track full of charm. 84%

Nina Nesbitt ft. Goody Grace- The Moments I’m Missing: A subtle but effective track from Nina here; often autobiographical lyrics can come across as forced and cheesey (See 7 Years by Lukas Graham) but on ‘The Moments I’m Missing’ Nina manages to tell her life story in a way that comes across as genuine. 89%

Arcade Fire – Electric Blue: ‘Electric Blue’ is the latest single to be taken from Arcade Fire’s upcoming ‘Everything Now’ album and it is v v catchy. A synthy disco track with a really infectious hook. 80%

Trash – 81: Another nice new single from Sheffield indie favourites Trash, ’81’ is another example of that they do best. Catchy indie guitar rock with great, personal lyrics on top of chill melodies. 90%

Split Milk Society – She Tastes Like Summer: This new track from Split Milk Society starts off as a gentle guitar ballad before developing into a more riff-driven, synthy bop. 75%
