Fresher Sounds - The best new music - 10/01/17

Now, as the annual festivities have all officially wound down for another year, it's once again time to return to the reality of our own respective working lives. Whether that be a fresh slew of exams at school or college, another gruelling semester at uni, or slogging away back at the old 9 to 5, there's always room for a cheeky bit of escapism here and there. However, maybe you don't have the time to be trawling through the new music playlists to find it. So that's where we come in. Here's a few for your esteemed consideration this week. Ferris & Sylvester - London's Blues Taken from the London-based duo's upcoming Made In Streatham EP, 'London's Blues'' exquisite genre-bending amalgam of upbeat Americana-infused folk-pop fits hand in glove with the abundance of cannily crafted vocal riffs that effortlessly weave through its melody with an assured resplendence. Ferris & Sylvester say that this is one of their favourites to play live, and after just a single listen, it won't be hard at all to see why. Tonight Alive - Disappear (feat. Lynn Gunn) Standing as the band's third release since switching labels from Fearless Records to Hopeless Records last year, 'Disappear' delves deep back into the ever-evolving Aussie rockers' pop-punk roots, conjuring up an iridescent ode to "the escapist inside all of us". Featuring an emboldening guest vocal turn from PVRIS frontwoman Lynn Gunn, the song presents a fresh, increasingly thought-provoking spin on the more conventional sides to Tonight Alive's sound, both emotionally and artistically. Rae Morris - Push Me to My Limit In contrast to the lively beats and bright melodies present in previous glimpses into the world of the ever-angelic Rae Morris' fast approaching sophomore album, 'Push Me to My Limit' has much more of a minimalist feel to it, focusing almost entirely on her ethereally alluring vocals - which most definitely isn't a bad thing.

Kid Wave - Twenty Four This latest offering from Swedish songstress Lea Emmery and her band Kid Wave, imparts a sumptuous slice of celestial shoegaze glory. A simplistic yet delicately layered melody chimes along to the subtle drum beat, while Emmery's musings on life play out in consummate fashion, like fireflies glistening in the night sky. Turbowolf - Domino Well acquainted artists collaborating with each other in the studio is obviously nothing new, however, you'd be very hard pressed to find a better marriage of musical styles and minds, in recent years at least, than this. The presence of Royal Blood's Mike Kerr - who described 'Domino' as "everything I want from Turbowolf as a fan" - adds a whole new abrasive sheen to the band's familiarly coarse sound.
