Spring sun is shining, festival season is upon us and excitement grows as both Bloc Party and Blossoms release new music, within a frantic splurge of juicy music goodness for New Music Friday.
While aforementioned Bloc Party’s Alpha Games and Blossoms’ Ribbon Around The Bomb anticipate a festivity of alternative-indie goodness with summer cider in hand, Working Men’s Club and Black Keys reveal another glitzy blues-piece of the album puzzle with Circumference and It Ain’t Over respectively.
Local Lincoln singer-songwriter Holly Humberstone follows up from her Brit-favourite London Is Lonely with stripped-back Sleep Tight while Superorganism follow with the same pathing via agile trip, crushed.zip.
This week is also awash with airy electronics and synth shindigs as Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs’ join the Crosswalk and I Hope It’s Not Like This Forever is set by heart-on-sleeve pop enthusiasts Amber Run.
A nice pairing to finish would be Deaf Havana’s continual pre-single push with On The Wire and Don Broco’s Fingernails. Nothing exactly revolutionary here in the world of alternative rock, but enjoyable listens all the same.
There’s some weekend treats for you to get stuck into today. With us also enjoying Foals live tonight at Olympia, London ahead of their 4-day bender, it’s going to be a good weekend!
