Five Crumbs: Gravity

Piecing together some dark, heavy riffs with electronic elements, Germany's Five Crumbs have created an edgy sound with their latest song Gravity, a song that takes you in so many directions it will make you dizzy.

Fasten your seatbelts!


Our rating: 8.5/10

Søndag: Titans

Continuing with the rock theme, Søndag turn up the vocal distortion on their latest song Titans and back it up with angry drums and heavy guitars reinforce the subject that no matter the bravado, we are all titans of nothing.


Our rating: 8.5/10

Last Of The Fallen Angels: Phase IV

Minimal, beautiful electro music, supporting minimal vocals, paying homage to electro music. It's a perfect concept, executed perfectly.

It reminds me of Massive Attack, but with more intelligence and maturity. And with the promise of two more tracks to come, I'm on the edge of my seat already!

One word: Incredible.


Our rating: 9.8/10

Seraphina Simone: Hollywood $$$

Atmospheric and eerie, with a vocal that bears an uncanny resemblance to Lana Del Rey doing an impression of Lily Allen.

Hollywood $$$ is an ultra cool pop track with a great piece of music behind the sounding vocals about the dark, grubby world of Hollywood.


Our rating: 9.1/10

Jolé: Tie Dye Sky

Lead track from Jolé's latest EP, Tie Dye Sky is the perfect example of how to strip a song back to acoustic guitar and vocals. Although, when the additional instruments come out to play, when those well scattered vocal harmonies show their face... wow!


Our rating: 9.2/10
