This article highlights some of the new music that was released the week ending April 26, 2019.
The Chain Gang Of 1974
The new single Such A Shame was released today. I went into this thinking that it would be a Talk Talk cover, but alas, it’s new material from the gang. This track has a different sound than what we are used to. It’s not a pure synth play containing some New Order style guitars and even some shoegaze-like droning.
Taken from the bands new album Young In My Head. This is a dreamy modern rock song with some great melodies, Morrissey-like lyrics, and a touch of shoegaze and brit pop influences.
Brand new single titled Something Borrowed off of the album Morning Thoughts. from the Swedish post punk / dreampop hybrid band. They like to call their sound “Death Pop”. Listen closely for some similarities to New Order’s Ceremony.
Some dark post punk off of the album Lillian. This has similarities to Press Gang Metropol, who we have featured here in the past. They both have Psychedelic Furs vocal similarities with a darker edge both vocally and musically.
The Manchester bands single Sunshine is a bit of jangly indie/dream pop that will make you smile. Reminiscent of early Pains Of Being Pure At Heart. Their debut album will be released new week.
