New Music: September Round-Up (Part 3)

I thought long and hard about what to call this post and in the end, I settled for "September Round-Up (Part 3)". Clever, I know...

Anyway, I wanted to squeeze in as many top new tunes as I can before the end of the month...

Dalmas: You Say

Manchester's Dalmas are no strangers to us at It's Indie, with their previous two singles Draw The Line and Mary quickly becoming firm favourites.

You Say is a return to the indie rock sound that the band are known for, it's the first track to come from their upcoming EP and it's a gem of a song.

It's the tale of a relationship breakdown, but clinging on, even though you know it's the wrong thing to do. The chorus, heart-felt and emotional, is one that will stick with you - so be warned!

Altogether, a great preview of the EP to come!

Our rating: 9.0/10

Butterjunk - Woodside

The new single from Butterjunk, Woodside, has a lot going for it. It's difficult to pigeonhole - it sits somewhere between indie rock and indie pop, but with a dreampop sound that bridges the genre gap perfectly.

Slow and eerie, with the obligatory spacial reverb on vocals, this is such a good track to wind down to. Don't be lulled though, because Woodside comes complete with an anthemic chorus, which lifts the track into atmospheric territory.

Our rating: 9.0/10

Charles Connolly - Never Said Goodbye

Charles Connolly has been making music for several years, but has only recently decided to take the plunge and expose his compositions to the world. And thank goodness he decided to do so!

Never Said Goodbye is a dark, brooding song about ending a relationship without explaining why. Musically, the deep bass, and choir background gives you that dark undertone that underlines the story of the song.

For me, the real eye-opener is that Charles has done everything himself. The music, the production, the vocals, all very impressive indeed. Add to this, the female vocals is also Charles and you understand what makes this singer/songwriter so unique and interesting.

Top drawer stuff!

Jack Errington: Drunk And High

Returning with his pop-infused/R'n'B track Drunk And High, Jack Errington has once again demonstrated why he is fast becoming known as Sydney's "rising pop prince."

Drunk And High is a cautionary tale of reckless behaviour, a first hand recollection of dark times for Jack, as he encourages you not to make the same mistakes. The song itself is of a similar style to that you might expect from Charlie Put
