Track: I Can’t Stand It

Why We Like It: Bursting with the youthful surge of indie pop this number bops, chimes and gushes with subtle sweetness and delicate vibrancy. It’s catchy, luscious and blissfully melodic as shimmering synths trickle candied chimes over deep bass slaps and jangly guitars. With a dreamy melancholic melody and pulsing buoyant beat Blossoms steep this track in light heart-racing sugary sprinkled pop that rides in on a wave of nostalgic emotion

Frontman Alfie Smith explains the meaning behind the song: “I was self medicating a broken heart and head which ultimately led to turning to others for help.”

Why We Like It: It’s a woozy airy healthy dose of shoegaze pop that packs in some dreamy honey coated melodies to tranqualise your mind in a light breezy bubble. With sharp distorted guitars adding a dash of dizzying bedazzlement and spiky zest this track presents you a luscious sweet daydream bliss but with a piercing edge. The heavily layered swirling guitars provide a shrilling wall of sound that is crafted to a refined elegance yet appears laid back almost lazy. Sublime listen.

Track: Too Different

Why We Like It: It’s a breezy atmospheric number that packs oodles of passion.Mature and anthemic this punchy track builds and progresses so that the chorus hits hard. A rich rumbly rhythm creates a fluctuating foundation for the sweet toned guitars to flicker and rebound off. The melody is delicate and lulling for the verses while the guitars freely swirl about the track with an ethereal aerial charm. Its well crafted and maturely written. A powerful display from Electric Shore.

My Pleasure

Genre: Almost pop

Bio: My Pleasure is from Hull, UK and describes his music as “almost pop”

Track: Drama at the Gala

About the track My Pleasure said: “Drama at the Gala is pretty much the song I always wanted to write, in which several different instruments spar with each other for attention and you’re never sure where the actual hook of the song is. It was especially nice to have my friend Carl Macklin on the drum set, fighting against a Casio drum machine.”

Why We Like It: It slaps a hosts of sounds into your ear drums causing the most contrasting assault to the senses. With sharp zealous guitar stings jabbing through fuzzed distortion while sweet little jingles lull and delicately soothe with a dolly like effect. Its packed with punk attitude and heavily layered beats which break for a stripped back acoustic verse. Though it’s a contrasting dizzying display each section is sublimely created giving a catchy satisfying track that quenches all appetites.
