Fresher Sounds - 23/02/2015

Milk & BoneLast week was another week full of surprises.

It was a week that saw Blur announce their return, Scarlett Johansson team up with Haim and Lady Gaga shock the world with an Oscars performance devoid of grotesque weirdness and banal pop. 

What should come as no suprise however, is the breadth of great tracks being released.

Here's our pick of the lot:

Blur - Go Out

2015 is already turning out to be a busy year for Damon Albarn. Following on from the return of Gorillaz, 90s indie icons Blur return with their quirky new single ‘Go Out.’ Taken from forthcoming album Magic Whip, the track’s expansive guitars and minimalistic vocals shows the band in one of their more experimental moods.

Milk & Bone - Pressure

Having ‘one of those weeks?’ Electro-pop duo Milk & Bone have the perfect pick-me-up. Taken from their forthcoming debut Little Mourning, this laid-back track is buoyed by ambient melodies and dreamy harmonies.

Heems - Home ft. Dev Hynes

If you’re still not relaxed, you can always get miserable with former Das Racist rapper Heems. This emotional break-up song is beautiful produced by Dev Hynes, who helps Heems get personal with some mellow, dreamy instrumentation.

The Preatures - Is This How You Feel?

OK, this track isn’t new, but its not as old as you’d think. Aussie outfit The Preatures are seeing success in the UK with their 80s pop-rock track ‘Is This How You Feel.’ Set to feature on their forthcoming debut album, the song's jangly guitars are underscored by an infectious bass groove.

Everything Everything - Distant Past

Good news, everyone! Everything Everything are back and as wonderfully weird as ever. This energetic, synth led number pairs Johnathan Higgs frantic, odd-ball vocals with instrumentation that flickers between ethereal and urgent.

Black Yaya - Vigilante

Black Yaya’s psychadelic Americana is the perfect soundtrack for a Western flick. The latest project for indie-pop stalwart Herman Dune, the song's strummed guitar and shimmering harmonica perfectly offset by the dreary melancholic vocals.

Diet Cig - Breathless

Diet Cig’s charming indie-pop track really speaks to our inner student. Taken from debut album Over Easy, the track perfectly captures both the unparalleled freedom and vulnerability of living away from home. With its jangly lo-fi guitars and simplistic production, this youthful track would not feel out of place in the 90s.   

Body Language - Really Love

Brooklyn electronic outfit Body Language just refuse to be pigeonholed. This bouncy, effervescent single fuses elements of dub and jungle with smooth R&B scattered vocals and infectious beats.
