Tracks Of The Week, 25.02.15

Woozy sci-fi influences intertwined with feral rock and roll riffs is a sound that two-piece, Vienna Ditto have harnessed perfectly and passionately crafted on their newest track, ‘Hammer and a Nail’. Primarily driven by a honeysuckle-sweet vocal, ‘Hammer and a Nail’, the first track to be taken from the duo’s forthcoming LP Circle, is a glorious celebration of exciting experimentation and overall euphoric joy. To quench your thirst for Vienna Ditto’s album, due May 4th, ‘Hammer and a Nail’ is available for purchase here.

Inevitably sending shivers down spines, the first offering from festival favourites Wolf Alice‘s anticipated debut album, My Love Is Cool, is the anthem made for the live stage: ‘Giant Peach’. Showcasing frontwoman Ellie Roswell’s impeccably infectious vocal in full splendour, ‘Giant Peach’ is an intense wave channelling early Riot Grrrl vibes and offering extreme satisfaction. While we wait with bated breath for Wolf Alice’s debut to hit shelves, this musical explosion is sure to keep the hunger pangs at bay.

The Nashville band championed by Gigslutz, The Bloody Nerve, and their pioneering country-rock infused sounds have began causing sensational storms again due to the forthcoming release of new track, ‘Find Ya Love’. Wild piano riffs complemented with the perfect pairing of sophisticated vocals send this luscious offering into extreme orbit. ‘Find Ya Love’, the first single to be taken from The Bloody Nerve’s forthcoming album, is all we could’ve asked from the band and more. The debut album album, Taste, is out 28th April.

Back with menacing vengeance and proving they’ve a point to make are LA beauties, Warpaint and their enchanting surprise new offering, ‘No Way Out (Redux)’. Brooding bass lines and magically haunting vocals are the core components of the quartet’s poignantly dark track.  Casting a brilliant new light across this highly-acclaimed band, ‘No Way Out (Redux)’ could perhaps be contender for single of 2015 so-far. Watch this space: Warpaint have returned.
