On the first of each month, us at TMB get together and pick a few of our favourite tracks from the previous 28/30/31 days. Thanks to Christmas and the New Year this has been slightly delayed this month, but the tracks are still as good as ever.
New Luna – Who (chosen by Daisy Summerfield)
Fresh from New Luna’s debut EP is ‘Who’, a banger of song with beautiful chorus harmonies and dreamy lead guitar riffs. 2017 promises even bigger things for one of Manchester’s best new bands.
Colouring – Symmetry (chosen by Elli Brazzill)
Colouring’s ‘About You’ was the first track to get me intrigued by the Londoners. Last month’s synth-alt/pop perfection ‘Symmetry’ just confirmed that they are ones to watch – plus the tremendous EP of the same name (and it’s glorious display of artwork). Extremely excited to see their performance at Live at Leeds later this year.
Keroscene – Like The First Time (chosen by Chris Graham)
Having supporting their last single, I couldn’t miss the chance of writing a few bits on this fresh one. The track takes a look into our existence as people. Surrounded in a slightly gloomy context, it combines a tension building lo-fi vocal with a dark instrumental of mischievous guitar chords and some wicked pop drum grooves.
Ten Fé – Born Slippy (chosen by James Hughes)
This cover of the classic track by Underworld is unrecognisable up to the point that the lyrics begin and you begin thinking ‘is this that lager, lager song?’. Well yes, yes it is. They’ve taken a dance track and made it their own. Not the most festive of Christmas covers, but great none the less!
