The best things in life come in small packages, including this week’s Mixtape.
Sun Bloom – Take It Away
It’s never too late in the year to bask in sun-soaked melodies with this colourful and vibrant surfer-rock track. Lead singer Viv Youel’s vocals possess a care-free charm which can be likened to Gwen Stefani’s charisma in the early days of No Doubt.
Larkins – Not Enough Love
Light-as-air melodies swirl around the rich synths before the infectious chorus smashes it’s way in. With a debut album on the horizon and an extensive upcoming tour, it’s mind-blowing to remember that the group only released their debut single at the beginning of this year.
Mike Dignam – Under the Influence
A sultry, soulful offering from the Manchester based singer as he arrives fresh off hiatus to deliver homemade, slick beats and emotion-driven vocals.
MONOWHALES – RWLYD (Really Wanna Let You Do)
A middle finger to society’s ever-increasing expectations packaged in a marching, electro-pop anthem completed by a post-punk kick.
Violet Days – Ink
With vocals of red velvet and honey, the Stockholm based singer delivers a dose of heartbreak in this delicately haunting piano ballad.
Julian Lamadrid – Red Car
The New York based singer evokes the gentle tenderness and heartbreak which is the key ingredient of any decent Country track.
Man With A Mission – 86 Missed Calls (feat. Patrick Stumps)
Our jet black side fringe and heavy eyeliner seems to have appeared again after the first few bars of this fun and furious track from the Japanese rockers with the added bonus of Fall Out Boy veteran Patrick Stump lending his vocals.
