New Music From The Inbox: Yolkes, Antigone Rising, The Glorious Sons, Dawes, & Velvet Two Stripes.

By Juliette Jagger

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

Sounds like: Foggy fantasies.

Link/Listen/Watch:  Stream it here.

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

Sounds like:  A little bit of Dolly.


Artist: The Glorious Sons “Shapeless Art”
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…”


Artist: Dawes “From A Window Seat”
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.


Artist: Velvet Two Stripes “Fire”
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.
