Two songs this week that are worth your time.
Artist: Lauren Strahm aka Fleurie
Sounds like: The big drum sound from Florence & The Machine mixed with the noirish vocals of Lana Del Rey and electronica. It’s a recipe that works well when the hook kicks into the middle of the song.
Memorable lyric: “If it feels right it’s probably wrong”. I’m sure Movie Supervisors are already ready to match this song with the perfect movie.
Artist: Rum Thief
Based: Chorlton, Manchester
The story: After playing drums for various bands, Jot Green decides to make like Dave Grohl or Phil Collins and strike out on his own
Sounds like: Someone that loved The Libertines and the debut album from The Arctic Monkeys. The energy is infectious. The vocals are spit out like a true rocker and yet there’s a melody that still hooks you in. I forgot this type of music existed. I’m glad someone is still inspired to make some punk rock grit.
