By on Thursday, 8th November 2012 at 10:00 am

Like Teenage Fanclub‘s brand of shoegazey, chill guitar lines? MUST, then, is a brand new London rock band you must investigate further. If you favour good riffs, fuzzy guitars and vocal harmonies, this is your new favourite band. They’re giving away their new song ‘The Devil Lives’, and looky here, they have a video for it too. And if that wasn’t enough excitement for you, you can also download their earlier track ‘Graceland’ too. Partake in it all below.

Bands to Watch #260: Echotape

By on Tuesday, 30th October 2012 at 12:00 pm

There aren’t that many bands that can claim that one of their promo videos has been featured as part of an art installation at the Tate Modern. However, Echotape can do exactly that. On the 22nd of October, the band who claim they’re from Wallop (?) on their Facebook page but I’ve read in another interview that they’re from Andover (?) released a double A-sided single, ‘Awakenings’ / ‘Spinning’, and it’s the visual for ‘Spinning’ that got some prime time in the major London gallery. What do they sound like? ‘Spinning’ is like a less annoying Vaccines, so there’s a sense of poppy rock, yet it still sounds vaguely anarchic.

But flip the single to ‘Awakenings’, and you might think you’re listening to an entirely different band. There is a sonic eeriness yet timelessness of Sigur Ros‘s ‘Hoppipolla’. Then there is this “AAI” (Amalgamated Aesthetic Industries) group explained in this interview by Est. 1987 that makes them sound like they’re involved in some kind of weird cult.

Are these guys we want with us when the revolution comes? Not sure yet, as this post is all I could put together without an official bio. But in the meantime, keep your eye on them. They’re making their London live headline debut on the 9th of November at the Garage. For more, you can download earlier song ‘Came Into My Blood’ below.
