Now, I know, I have been away for a few months and I know that this means I have missed A LOT of the end of 2017’s musical buzz. More importantly the local, Brighton homed buzz..but fear not I am here with four things you need to hear/see just incase you were as distant as me over the last few months..

 

Yonaka shared the pink linen engulfed visuals for their killer single “Bubblegum” off their debut ‘Heavy’ EP.  After finding them a few years back, boy are they proving to be one hell of an uprise. 2018 is gon’ be big for this bunch..

 

Klae became a new name to divulge yourselves in as they shared their debut track “Fake”. Showing that there are two sides to everything in the video for a promising local upstart..

 

High Tyde continued to finish their 2017 in style by sharing “Young Offenders & “In Your Head”, both with videos boasting their teen breakout aesthetic. Again, another band with a bright year ahead for sure..

 

Sulky Boy went and dished out “Shasta Fay” alongside a swanky new look (big fan). An already decent following throughout the lanes of Brighton, a breakout year for the stick out duo? Maybe..

 

SO, that’s ya lot, for now anyway..

OH and my aptly named ‘Playlisted Weekly’ Spotify playlist will be back and up to date this Friday (05/01) TOO! Get on that ting below here:

One of my favourite Brighton bands and best group of lads around Animal House are looking towards their new EP and “Coca Cola” is the first sneaky preview of the aussie fueled release..

Frolicing around the city with the help of The Hiccup Project, it’s safe to say that the boys have a lot left to be desired in the dance move department. The single though is full of the thirst quenching, scraggly rock-pop sound that we’ve grown to know and love since their arrival a few years ago..

Get the catchy tune trapped in your head for the rest of your Monday and please feel free to take any dance tips (don’t) from the visuals below..

Not only is the video I’m about to show you completely beautiful in it’s execution but the music by London/Brighton artist Alexander Teller is full of unknowing brilliance..

Soft tellings of Britpop classics soak through as a straight to the point storytelling hits you right in those unsteady feels. The visuals intertwine with Teller’s writings effortlessly, with confident simplicity, making a somewhat perfect music video..

Get to know this guy, this single has given me those excitable, tingly feelings. Yes, like Spiderman..

There’s nothing like a Brighton based premiere to kickstart your weekend right?..

Maddy Jones, Mark Docherty, Tariq Khawaja, Adam Passingham and Luis Bezzi forged Team New Band in 2013. The debut EP “Finally” dropped last year which blew the five piece into a local fan base. Their first release of the year brings a crashing of US inspired, alternative rock lying in a 90’s Britpop haze..

“What ‘Freaks’ demonstrates is a band that are restless in their work ethic, always eager to venture further into their sound, discovering stones unturned and ultimately, discovering a sound that sells their musical roots..” 

Raw and gritty beneath, this track grows on it’s morals. We are all freaks really aren’t we? Exclusively stare at the slappings that occurred within the post brainwashed party below..

Since seeing this lot in Brighton a month or so ago my heart has been firmly struck by this Chicago based, soft-rock force of an up and coming band..

The debut “No Woman” came and left us wanting more and “Golden Days” arrives with the same upheaval of swanning, melancholy beauty. Watch the cleverly musty filtered visuals for their new release below as we get excited for the debut album set to release in June via Secretly Canadian..

I don’t have many words to say about this young lady from Brighton and for good reason. After following her music over the last couple of years as somewhat of a major fan girl this live sharing of her single “Joke Shop” says everything itself..

So stop what you are doing, put down your pen, sandwich or even baby and get completely blown away by what is one of my favourite songs from one of my favourite up and coming artists. This girl is gonna be big..
