Not too long ago, we brought back a column where we recommend music, and here’s another. Here are a few songs - some new and some a bit older, from bands and artists big, small and inbetween - that should be on your radar.
STRAY THE COURSE "JETLAG"
“Jetlag” is the opener and lead single for Stray The Course’s debut EP, and for good reason. It’s not only a very upbeat, catchy and fun track to listen to, but it also mixes the punk and pop punk influences in the band’s music and shows all the different elements that make up their sound.
SHARPTOOTH "CLEVER GIRL"
The title track off of Sharptooth's debut quickly became one of my favorites off of that album and made me become a fan of this band in the first place. As well as the energy and aggression this track provides, something about it just made it stick out to me amongst the rest, and it’s a very memorable track from the band.
ROB JARVIS & THE MERCURY SONS "fOUR WALLS"
Following my interview with this band, I checked out their latest single “Four Walls.” The guitars deliver some pretty unique guitar parts, the vocals shine just as much as the instrumentals, and as a whole, this track is an intriguing one that shows off the band’s musical abilities.
ALICE LIMOGES "HUNGRY FOR A VICE"
“Hungry For A Vice” is the latest track from musician Alice Limoges, and similarly to the track I mentioned before, this one also has darker composition that really made it, the vocal performance stands out, and it makes a pretty interesting listen overall.
L.I.F.T. "cASSETTE TAPES"
L.I.F.T. released their debut EP last year, and this is easily one of my favorites off of it. The song is not only very catchy composition wise, but it also mixes the different styles of the band’s sound, showing it off perfectly.
YOUNG RISING SONS "SCATTERBRAIN"
Young Rising Sons are a band I discovered fairly recently, and this song off of their latest double-single release quickly became a favorite of theirs for me. In addition to the energy this track brings, it also shows off the new influences they incorporated on that release and just how well those influences worked for them.
