We all hate small talk about the weather, but that seems to be Britain's strong point at the minute. Just as we thought 'The Beast' had gone, we are graced with more snow and sub zero temperatures in the middle of March. Hopefully this week's fresher sounds can inject some joy into your lives to soundtrack yet another snowy recovery and psych us all up for those long summer nights, garden parties and festivals. PLYA – Feast My Eye Alternative-pop trio PLYA (pronounced “ply-ah,” Spanish for “beach”), have released their third single ‘Feast My Eye’; a hauntingly beautiful track combining dream-pop elements with electronica. The vocals in this track vary from soft sultry vibes to more urgent and almost La Roux-like tones with catchy beats throughout. The By Gods – Wait Up Hailing from Nashville, the alternative trio release a brand-new music video for their single, ‘Wait Up’. The track opens with a catchy drum and bassline that immediately hooks you in, the lead vocals have a pop-punk feel to them but not enough to class this as “pop-punk”. ‘Wait Up’ is a chilled rock tune that maintains the same vibe from start to finish with a fiery part towards the end and the video includes their dogs, Dookie and Wheezy, so what’s not to love? OUTLYA – White Light OUTLYA’s new single, ‘White Light’ is an indie dream. Produced by Dan Grech-Marguerat, who has worked with Liam Gallagher, Radiohead and Tom Grennan, this track would only have such an outcome. ‘White Light’ is the catchiest record released in a long time; it immediately makes you feel like dancing and singing along in the first listen despite not knowing the words yet. Lead singer Will Bloomfield explains how this single is about pushing through dark times, “We wanted to take that sentiment and make a physical version of that would make you want to dance. Dancing is this really instinctive raw human expression of emotion and we tried to encapsulate that”. Sam Johnson – Way Back Home ‘Way Back Home’ is the brand new follow up single after ‘Perfect Circle’ by Sam Johnson. It’s a stirring ode to the current politics, illustrating Johnson’s unique vocals. The song definitely transports you to a simpler time, his ability to convey such emotion and feeling in lyrics is rare and definitely puts him at the top of the list for songwriting. Constine – Die
