DarliaAs the old adage goes, good things come in threes.

Now in our third week, we hope to prove columns are certainly no exception.

Fortunately, the great tunes keep on coming to offset these increasingly tenous opening paragraphs.

We're only three columns in! It looks like 2015 is going to give us plenty of awesome music to keep us going, we just need to write better intros...

Just listen to this little lot...


Django Django - First Light

Django Django have announced their return in style with their energetic new single, ‘First Light.’ The synth heavy track mixes psychedelic pop harmonies with a shuddering, spacey bassline as the band show off a darker and more assertive sound.

St Vincent - Bad Believer

After a 2014 filled with universal acclaim from fans and critics alike, fiery songstress St Vincent has returned with ‘Bad Believer.’ Taken from the deluxe version of her self-titled album, the experimental track combines experimental synth melodies with bombastic pop hooks.  

Darlia - I’ve never been to Ohio

Ahead of their mini album Petals, Blackpool grunge revivalists Darlia have unveiled ‘I’ve Never Been to Ohio.’ The track’s fuzzy guitars are fused with lofty vocal hooksthat make it seem like 1994 all over again - and that's no bad thing!

Doldrums - Hotfoot

Electronic aficionado Airwick Woodhead returns with 'Hotfoot', the latest offering from his solo project Doldrums. A chaotic, snarling bassline dominates, with the gritty industrial instrumentation providing  an unrelenting and forboding energy.  

 José González - Leaf of /the cave

Ahead of his first solo album in seven years, José González has returned in genial fashion with ‘Leaf of/ The Cave’. Previously known for a delicate, minimalistic sound, the expansive track draws from a variety of influences, including 70s Brazilian productions, American folk rock, and West African desert blues.

Denai Moore - Elsewhere

With her debut album on the horizon, Denai Moore is set to be one of the stand-out vocalists of 2015. The title track of her forthcoming album, Elsewhere is hauntingly melancholic, with the minimalistic instrumentation allowing her soulful, restrained vocals to come to the fore.

Enter Shikari - Anaesthetist

‘Illness is not an indulgence we should pay for’ cries vocalist Rou Reynolds in his staunch defence of the NHS. The socio-political lyrics are the only constant of the ever evolving Enter Shikari sound, with their new track ‘Anaesthetist’ an idiosyncratic fusion of futuristic electronic riffs and thundering rock choruses.

BADBADNOTGOOD & Ghostface Killah ft. DOOM - Ray Gun

The latest track taken from Wu-Tang legend Ghostface Killah and jazz collective Badbadnotgood  is the finest to come from the collaboration. The track has a distinct noir vibe, with the retro, cinematic instrumentation complimenting Ghostfaces’ slick exchanges with the enigmatic MF DOOM.
