By Juliette Jagger

Artist: Yolke “Tough Times”
Album:
Syrup
This song stitches all the right components together  – Lush colourful synths, ticking drums, and suggestive bass lines.  

Sounds like: Foggy fantasies.

Artist: Antigone Rising “ That Was The Whisky”
Album:
 Single
This song’s a beauty. Drivin’ country rock and it’s radio ready.

Sounds like:  A little bit of Dolly.

Link/Listen/Watch:

 
Artist: The Glorious Sons “Shapeless Art”
Album:
Self-Titled
This band’s something curious. Lyrics sound like total truth and pronunciation is just a little off, which makes that back of the throat grit all the more appealing.

Sounds like: “Living in the shapeless art…”

Link/Listen/Watch:

 
Artist: Dawes “From A Window Seat”
Album:
Stories Don’t End
Dawes is all about the narrative, and that’s not something everyone can pull off. This is a song that totally grows on you, whether you want to let it in or not.

Sounds like: Great American storytellers.

Link/Listen/Watch:

 
Artist: Velvet Two Stripes “Fire”
Album:
Fire EP
If you’re gunna be a lady in rock you better have a grimy voice like this one.

Sounds like: Sleazy, bluesy rock and roll.
