Alex here. I was too busy doing a video shoot to add any bands to this month’s roundup. Dan’s picks are below. I had to do SO MUCH grammatical editing and there’s only like 10 sentences. DAN: Turn on your auto-correct in Word.
The Beths are a band from Auckland, New Zealand who have a knack for writing great songs. The band’s power pop harmonies are all over their debut album “Future Me Hates Me”. The single I chose was “Little Death” as its slow start builds to pounding verse and chorus which sticks in the memory.
Anna Calvi is just about to release her third album and if this song is anything to go by then we are in for another amazing set of songs. If you haven’t seen Anna live, you don’t know what you are missing! Her guitar playing is second to none and its one of the most intense shows I have ever seen.
Seeing these guys play the Heavy Music awards was an event! The band consists of members of Letlive, The Chariot and Night Verses. They released an EP called “Made An America” with this single. The band’s shows are manic and I can’t wait to hear more music from them.
