Tracks Of The Week, 18.03.16

Following two EPs as Stokholm-based collective INGRID, Ted Malmros and Sarah Snavely have now released a brand new album as A Nighthawk.

Taken from the album, ‘Coming For You’ oozes a spellbinding beauty and subtle power. Flowing with Snavely’s sweeping, emotive vocals and sparkling melodies, alongisde driving beats, it’s a pure sonic delight.

Ice In The Belly, Fire In The Mind, the new album from A Nighthawk, is out now via Dead Dandelion Collective.

Soon to release his debut EP, singer-songwriter John Parry has previously won the XLP Arts Showcase, as well as having wowed crowds at Lovebox festival and The Garage.

The EP’s title track, ‘Enough’, is an impassioned, brooding offering that sees smooth, folky melodies flow alongside Parry’s emotion-strewn vocals. Building to an aching climax, the track exudes shades of early, acoustic Radiohead, as well as the likes of Ben Howard.

Enough, the debut EP from John Parry, is out now.

Gigslutz favourite, Gothenburg-based Nadia Nair, follows her last single ‘Something Something Something’ with the equally powerful ‘Dear Brother’. With electro, tribal beats at its core, Nair has created a track with such intense energy and emotional power that it’ll resonate with you long after first listen.

Filled with Nair’s distinctive raw, soulful vocals, ‘Dear Brother’ is as colourful as it is utterly enticing; it becomes an unforgettable, captivating mantra.

Beautiful Poetry, the debut album from Nadia Nair, is set for release 29 April. And catch a special live session with Nadia on the Gigslutz Girls’ New Music show on 14 April!

Manchester five piece Cabbage – far from being grim and unappetizing – are proving to be quite the opposite; blasting out their raucous tunes, they’re actually sounding pretty tasty. And, already receiving acclaim from the likes of Huw Stephens and The Charlatans’ Tim Burgess, they’re turning out to be quite the Dish Of The Day.

Taken from Cabbage’s new EP, ‘Kevin’ is a catchy number with hints of Libertines and Fat White Family, along with its own unique energy and charisma. With racing riffs, uptempo beats and snarling vocals, it’s a delicious slice of post-punk goodness. The band sum up the meaning of the track nicely: “Kevin is everything, Kevin is everybody. You are Kevin… Now all rise.”

Le Chou, the new EP from Cabbage, is out now, which includes four more awesome tracks, such as the wonderfully satircal ‘Dinnerlady’ and the to-the-point social commentary of ‘Austerity Languish’.
