With many artists releasing singles in anticipation for festival season, this week's Fresher Sounds is overflowing with sing-along hits and emotional ballads. Now that the Easter holidays have begun for a lot of us, it's time to start learning the lyrics to our selection of new music as it's likely they will be popping up in the small stages at festivals dotted across the country.
BABYTEETH - Cut It
This grunge five-piece band has created a sharp and infectious tune in 'Cut It'. Vocalist Camilla Roholm explained that the song is about "cutting out the poisonous parts [of your life] and feeling better for it", and that sense of relief is certainly conveyed through this song's upbeat and moody vibe.
Johnny Lloyd - I Need Help
This track opens with some spellbinding strings and gradually builds up to the chorus as the vocals and percussion are introduced. Lloyd's voice almost fades in with the other instruments, creating an atmosphere of serenity despite the heartbreaking lyrics. The rawness of the song arises from the fact that every song on his upcoming album, including 'I Need Help', was recorded in three takes or less.
Field Medic - the bottle's my lover, she's just my friend
This single, which is from the folk singer's upcoming album fade into dawn, is a soothing track overflowing with feeling and emotion, showcased through Kevin Patrick's haunting vocals. Patrick has reminisced that "the whole song came out in a matter of minutes" due to it depicting such a darkly vivid period of his life, where he would stay home alone to get drunk.
Jakuzi - Kalbim Köprü Gibi
'Kalbim Köprü Gibi' can be translated to "my heart is like a bridge" and this song depicts the emotions of being in love with two people. Although Jakuzi sings in Turkish, he is an example of how music can convey universal emotions. The synth-style reflects his inner-turmoil, but his vocals have so much clarity that they produce a calming sensation that you have to bask in.
