New Music is brought to you weekly by Deadly Music!, which covers mostly indie/alternative music as well as electronica, ambient/modern classical, pop and anything really, really good.
Bent Cousin: “Perfect Summer”
We’ve covered English pop act Bent Cousin (above) before but the twins from Brighton, England never ever fail in their quest to make classic boy-girl indie pop.
A hallmark of the twin brother-sister act is breezy pop accompanied by perfect harmonies and generally clever and often biting lyrics referencing pop culture - see for example their brilliant track ”Spice Girls.”
Nothing if not prolific, their latest release is a collaboration with English solo act Guiville. Complete with sha-la-las and a wall of sound wash, it’s perfect end of year pop.
Real Lies: “World Peace”
Coming on like early 90s New Order via the “baggy” excess of The Stone Roses, if you close your eyes (and you’re old enough) “World Peace” will instantly transport you back to the glorious world of The Hacienda before obnoxious EDM took over.
Have a listen to "Real Lies" and last year's "Deeper."
For fans of: New Order, Delphic, Pet Shop Boys, The Beloved.
Listen to new tracks by Andrew Keoghan, Young Romance, The Virgance and Lost Cassettes, AFTER THE JUMP...
