MIMR RADAR is back, in 2014 it introduced you to bands like Telegram, The Wytches, Ought and The districts amongst others. This year looks set to be another exciting year for new bands so RADAR will now be a weekly feature every Sunday, bringing you the bands to give a listen or catch them live. As it’s the 1st week I’ve decided to do 2 new bands, enjoy!!
MIMR RADAR presents: Pretty Vicious
Pretty Vicious are a group of young upstarters who look set to put the Welsh town of Merthyr on the map. Their Indie Rock sound (Think Arctic Monkeys crossed with the angst of early Manic Street Preachers) have made them the most talked about band in wales and further afield, with record labels scrambling for their services after just one track. Having only played their 1st gig last month, 2015 is sure to be huge and they start the year with a small tour of Welsh towns including my hometown of Wrexham, expect to see more of these young chaos on the blog very soon!
Check out their track ‘Cave Song’ here:https://soundcloud.com/prettyviciousuk/cave-song
MIMR RADAR Presents Sunset Sons
This British/Aussie foursome have been on MIMR radar for a few months now and have quickly become one of the bands to watch for 2015. Having already acquired notably success almost a year ago now with ‘Le Surfing’ EP which charted high in the ITunes chart, this led to extensive radio airplay and some well received live performances. Their overall outlook is a breath of fresh air and their sound very melodic and exciting which MIMR agrees with very much. Catch them at a venue near you this year and they will be on MIMR again this year for sure
