New Music From The Inbox: The Rest, Hani Zahra, Gold & Youth, A Grave With No Name, & Tricky

By Juliette Jagger

Artist: The Rest “Who Knows”
Album:
SEESAW
There is something heartbreaking about this video. The character serves as a reminder of the way we humans tend to put down the things we think we’re above, and the people we don’t care to understand.

Sounds like: Symphonic.

Artist: Hani Zahra “Cannibal Crime (Wait Wait Wait)”
Album:
Along Those Lines
This song is a tone of fun, 60’s-esc vocal group harmonies are great, and the hook is done just right.

Sounds like:  Kaleidoscopic indie pop.

Artist: Gold & Youth “Jewel”
Album:
Beyond Wilderness
This song from Vancouver quartet Gold & Youth blows in like a heavy breeze. It’s weighted with drama and emotion but it hangs in the air all through the night.

Sounds like: Shadowy electronics.

Artist: A Grave With No Name “Aurora”
Album:
Whirlpool
Moody and bass heavy, yet it manages to be delicate all at the same time.

Sounds like: Coming full circle.

Artist: Tricky “Nothing’s Changed”
Album:
False Idols
Faint, breathless, and looming, the vocals on this song are distressed in such a way that you feel as if the words are chocking up in your own throat.

Sounds like: Back to basics and better than ever.
