Another Friday means a whole host of new music released for your listening pleasure! This week, we check out the latest new tracks from Easy Life, This Is The Kit, Passenger and The Slow Readers Club!
Easy Life - Daydreams
Following on from their stellar mixtape ‘Junkfood’ earlier this year, Leicester based 5-piece Easy Life are teasing an upcoming album with the release of their latest single ‘Daydreams’. Reimagining Aretha Franklin’s 1972 hit ‘Daydreams’, the track talks about living in an alternate reality and escaping everyday life, something we can all relate to at the moment! As one of the hottest new bands to emerge from the UK music scene, have a listen below and if you missed out on tickets to their special sold out show at London’s Roundhouse next April, you can join our waiting list now.
This Is The Kit - Off Off On
Brimming with off-beat flourishes and catchy melodies, the fifth album from Kate Stables’ This Is The Kit is out today! In keeping with the stop-start nature of lockdowns this year, the album is appropriately named ‘Off Off On’ and full of folk flavoured favourites. Our favourite track ‘Started Again’ is perfectly described as ‘a masterclass in complex songwriting, shifting from its walking-pace stroll, through mournful saxophone and sparse rhythm guitar, into a slow-building crescendo of layers and cross-rhythms’. Check it out below and don’t forget to pick up your tickets for their Manchester show next March.
Passenger - A Song For The Drunk and Broken Hearted
Mike Rosenberg, aka Passenger, releases a first preview of his upcoming album with the title track ‘A Song For The Drunk and Broken Hearted’. The Ivor Novello award-winning songwriter opens up about his broken heart and the process of writing the record with ‘It's always very sad when a relationship ends, but it also inspires me. When you consume alcohol, it has two possible outcomes: either it makes you very happy or it emphasizes how you really feel. ” We can’t wait to hear the album in full, set for release January 8th 2021. Grab your tickets for his live shows in Nottingham, Manchester and Bristol shows next February!
The Slow Readers Club - 91 Days in Isolation
Hot on the heels of its epic predecessor ‘The Joy of the Return', Manchester’s The Slow Readers Club have just dropped their quarantine collection ’91 Days in Isolation’! The album was penned remotely during the initial coronavirus lockdown and the finished product clocks in at a little under 30 minutes worth of exemplary music-making! Check out the track ‘Wanted Much More’ and make sure you pick up a ticket for their upcoming tour in March/April 2021!
