Share This Article:

TalmontSummer is here, or at least it was, and the festival season is in full swing. If you’re looking for new artists to soundtrack your summer away from the stages, look no further.

Thinking of creating a new playlist for the plane on your way to your relaxing holiday? As always Fresher Sounds has the best new tunes to fill your every need. 

Talmont – Moving Further Than Before

With an Amy Winehouse-esque attitude creeping onto this slice of electro-jazz, you can't go wrong. Its classic jazz meets modern beats fusion with powerful vocals makes it an excellent asset to your essential BBQ playlist this summer.

Smooth Ends – Be a Man

With an instant hook and catchy piano keys 'Be A Man' Smooth Ends latest cut is bound to get your foot tapping. Smooth Ends have the same flavour as a sister band called ‘Peace’. It's a proper contradiction, the dark lyrics aren't as happy as the chiming psychedelic/disco guitar and funky bass would have you believe. “You know I’ve tried so hard to be a man”, the theme of the song relates to not being able to hold on to emotions you’ve kept bottled up inside; but with the upbeat, cheery vibe, there’s a sense of acceptance to this theme. 

Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes – Wildflowers

If you’re a big fan of The Killers, you'll love this, it’s the perfect driving song. The constant fast-pace beat with coarse guitars instantly pick you off your feet. 

Third Culture Kings – Flamingo

The new iPhone project led by Jan Johansen (Glorybox) and Alap Momin (dälek) collides a mass of different styles! Debut track 'Flamingo' mixes classic singer-songwriter styles with a deep dub mix and scattered 80s synth pads. It’s your perfect picnic-in-the-park, sunglasses on, kind of affection.

Dan Raza – Two

Great for a summer evening by a river, this Americana track is sublime to wind down to after a busy day. And the lovely Dan Raza sounds a little like James Blunt, bonus.

Tamino – Cigar

This new track from Tamino is a quintessential break up song. He cleverly sings this ballad with a Hozier/The xx attitude. He’s not afraid to represent his Egyptian culture in this track either, ‘Cigar’ oozes serenity.

Amy Steele – Graces

Calling all Lana Del Rey fans, Amy Steele captures the same tranquillity on ‘Graces’. Amy reminds us that a simple ballad and her raw, angelic intonation with delicate use of piano and drums is just as effective. Incredibly dreamy.

Felix Hagan & The Family – Delirium Tremendous

If you’re looking for a song to get lost in, to scream and run to – this is your best bet. Felix Hagan & The Family perform in such a way that there are creepy, chilling, but exciting elements to it. After spoken word from the singer, Felix Hagan, the two female singers whisper “Stop. Kick. Twist. Now”, enough for you to feel slightly uncomfortable. Yet this is what the band are about, they outwardly evoke the importance of addressing dark themes: depression, addiction, and the loss of young dreams.

Adult Books – Firewalking

Fresh out of sunny California, Adult Books, are incredibly clever with their lyrics. Combined with a trippy music video, it’s also extremely catchy and transitioning; enough to remind you of Tame Impala.

L.A Witch - Kill My Baby Tonight

Channelling classic 60s garage and surf rock vibes, you'll feel you're in a smokey, dive bar listening to 'Kill My Baby Tonight'. Sway along to this with a drink in hand, and you’ll feel as though you’ve been taken back in a time machine to the 60s.
