Worth A Listen

 

Our worth a listen track this week comes from Little Grim a four Piece band from London their single ‘ Vice’ is a dark ambient track with an intoxicating psychedelic feel. The strong bass line and guitar riff draws you into every beat and note played right up to the climax, where it becomes more grungy to make you automatically mosh until it descends into a trance finish. The Hook pulls you into a story of strong rumbling emotions while the falsetto backing vocals seems to call to you back like a haunting conscience
This band have a tight sound and a bright future ahead hope to hear more from them in 2016

Stream ‘Vice’ Below

Palmas

 

Palmas are from Philadelphia, New York City, United States with an indie – surfer sound and killer vocals. Band members Eric Camarota ( guitarist) , Matthew Young (guitarist) , Adam Cantiello ( guitarist), Pat Degan (drummer), Kurt Cain (vocalist), have created the perfect summer sound with catchy tunes and sweet melodic riffs. One listen and you will be transported back to the sunny idealistic 60s with a modern twist.
My first introduction to Palmas was through their song ” You Were My Girl” a lovely smooth waltz- like song  with a Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons feel with tight harmonies . This song definitely gives the romantic summer night slow dance feel.The melancholy lyrics relates to everyone at some point in their lives and gives a nostalgic ambiance. Their track “Stay Away ” gives a darker mysterious tone to their sound, with strong guitar and more prominent drum beat bringing in a more rock influence with catchy lyrics. Another favourite of mine is ” Ride The Wave” its 50s rock and roll sound with a Chuck Berry ” Johnny Be Good” feel is ridiculously infectious and can brighten up any day.
On the first track from their debut EP ” To The Valley”, “I Want To Know (Your Love).” Palmas show off their surf – rock sound with vocals that parallel with the percussion and guitar riffs seamlessly intertwined with a catchy melody and remarkable chorus. Each song follows its predecessor with ease, finishing with “San Francisco Bay” this is a sweet track that will have you singing along in no time and wishing you could go on holidays right now. This 6 track EP is a must listen, perfect for those summer vibes. I personally find it extremely difficult to pick a favourite song as I love them all and can listen to them all day.

The Fontaines

 

The Fontaines, consisting of brother-sister duo, Charlotte and Hank Fontaine, from Los Angeles have created a sweet timeless ‘New Whop’ sound. With swinging bopping 50s references
Their debut EP ‘The Fontaines’ which was released in 2015, consists of 5 tracks some of which are cleverly named after 1950s and 1960s icons, the first being ‘Paul Newman’ which is a fun swinging track with all the traits of a 50s song with clever lyrics that keep you smiling and singing along throughout. Charlotte sings this track particularly sweetly and yet confidently giving a candy floss sound with some sass.
“Dusty Springfield,” named after the English pop singer of the same era is again a lovely track with a swoony melody, swing like beats and an insanely catchy chorus.” Charlotte Fontaine” follows in a rhythm and blues style with a steady beat and smooth vocal harmony as backing vocals sing the word “ahh” while Charlotte sings the chorus in a lower tone than we hear her sing in the other tracks. This contrast is very effective here and gives a sombre tone to the song.
The classic American Actor, “Dustin Hoffman,” follows next, this song shows us another side to The Fontaines with a fuller band and surf rock sound making good use of the drums and guitars. With humorous clever lyrics and catchy melody sung with a strong vocal Charlotte shows off the control she has over her voice as she varies from a soft vocal to more powerful with even a slight grit in her voice at times.
“Cate Blanchett’ named after the actress,is the final track on the EP. This song has perhaps the most variety instrumentally and vocally as it begins very stripped back with soft vocals and light simple accompaniment and builds into more prominent guitar and drums throughout the song. Its perfect to finish off their EP as it leaves you wanting more.
These tracks are easy to listen to, light, fluffy, cleverly written and composed songs with a dreamy swoon feel and a hint of sass I can’t wait to hear more from ‘The Fontaines’
