Best of January 2021
Selection of our favourite new releases from January 2021!
The world united in a big fuck off to 2020 and welcomed 2021 with open arms this month. Whilst things may not be necessarily improving immediately, there's been a whole host of new tunes for us to sink our teeth into.
To see our full playlist and enjoy over fifty bops from this month, check us out on Patreon.
Here's a selection of our favourites to flesh out your playlists!
Kiwi Jr. - 'Waiting In Line'
Toronto low-fi alt rockers Kiwi Jr. dropped their debut album in 2020 and were quick to follow it up with their sophomore release Cooler Returns this month. 'Waiting In Line' is the album closer and it's a stunner, as is the whole record!
Cassia - 'Powerlines'
Listening to the sun-soaked indie of Cassia, you'd never guess their origin lies in Cheshire market town of Macclesfield. Latest tune 'Powerlines' continues in a similar vain to that of their debut album Replica (2019), chilled out indie pop to whisk you away to a summers evening,
The Vaccines - 'No One Knows'
If you're like me, you've been constantly refreshing The Vaccines socials, praying for new music. If you are, you will have been fooled earlier this month when the band announced just that! However, it came in the form of a cover of Queens of the Stone Age classic 'No One Knows'. The cover is the first of an EP made aptly named Cosy Karaoke .
Whilst it's not exactly what we were after, it's a new take on a now exhausted song and it's another dose of The Vaccines to keep us going. Listen here!
Matt England - 'Outside'
This debut single from Matt England is shimmering indie pop with songwriting capabilities far more matured than to be expected from a first effort!
Yard Act - 'Dark Days'
Leeds based rockers Yard Act deliver attitude and swagger through minimalist rock come punk with 'Dark Days'.
Vocalist James Smith's West Yorkshire accent delivers deadpan lyricism and fused with vivid storytelling. Follow and listen to the quartet here!
Apollo Junction - 'On the Ropes'
Another Leeds-based outfit, Apollo Junction, have been making a name for themselves through fusing heavy indie with electronic vibes.
Support all these bands by listening to their music and following them where you can!
