It’s Friday which means another round of Fridays Finest with our fellow compadres It’s All Indie, Indie Central Music and Turtle Tempo. Be sure to get your ears around this and give it some love!
Nexus Music Blog – Lyves
Lyves is the alias of Francesca Bergami. Confirming that Lyves is one of the most unique artists proudly owning the spotlight, Francesca continues to produce moments of tranquil, golden quality. With a sense of such peace, emotion and feeling, it is never far fetched to find something positive to relay about Lyves.
The latest track ‘Deep Water’ contains all of the aforementioned emotion, feeling and characteristics. There is a haunting tonality to ‘Deep Water’, with a resonance that connects at the very core.
Turtle Tempo – Slowlines
London-duo Slowlines describe themselves as genre-neutral with distinctive Coldplay influences and their latest single ‘Melody’ sounds apt for this time of year. The band consists of Dan Clark and Tim Hillier Brook, the latter of the two was a former member of my favourite band of all time, Sons & Lovers. After a long hiatus of over a year from playing live shows, Slowlines headline The Lexington in February 2020 with tickets available on DICE.
It’s All Indie – Stay Lunar
Stay Lunar hail from that sweet-spot in the UK, Bristol. It’s a place where so many great bands have come from over the years and has arguably one of the best music scenes in the UK. The band are a five-piece and have a fresh new track out as of late, “Catch Up”. It’s a delightful slice of Indie-Pop with nods back to the pop era of the 1980s with some cosmic sounds added in for good measure. They’re one of those ‘go-to bands’ when a touring artist needs a solid opener and judging by the sounds of it they’re definitely one of those acts who can get their fans to come to shows. The track is layered up really well with some beautiful spritely synths, airy guitars and lyrics that deserve a good sing-a-long.
Speaking about the track the band say ” … “Catch Up” is a song about pushing your feelings for someone to the back of your mind in an attempt to move on, only to have those feelings sickeningly resurrected when you bump into them in the future. It’s the realisation that they (the person) never left your mind in the first place, and now it’s all catching up with you.”
Indie Central Music – Stereo Honey
London quartet Stereo Honey have confirmed they will be releasing a new EP next year as they share their second single to feature on it ‘My Darkness’. To throw another curveball, they also confirm they are planning to release a debut album at the end of 2020 – so there’s a lot to look forward to! ‘My Darkness’ finds Stereo Honey at their best yet, thematically tackling apathy in society, mental health, self-destruction and ultimately, the most challenging aspect of the human condition, death. The ‘Ladders To The Sun’ EP will also include previous single ‘You Are A Monster’, as well as four other new tracks, due to be revealed over the coming months.
