Slaves ‘Feed The Mantaray’
The Punk duo from Kent return to the playlist with their latest offering which is taken from their much anticipated debut album ‘Are You Satisfied’ out June 1st. Their raw, gritty sound comes to the forefront on this track and MIMR is looking forward to seeing these chaps at Focus Wales in April, I reckon they will storm it!
Sundara karma ‘Loveblood’
Next on the playlist are the excellent talents of Sundara Karma. These Reading indie teens are making great strides with their powerful, atmospheric indie vibes. With a recently released EP ‘EP1’ now under their belts they look certain to continue their journey and there on the right track says MIMR
Black Honey ‘Madonna’
Another band I’m looking forward to seeing at Focus Wales are Black Honey, who are fast becoming one of many peoples fave new bands of 2015. New single ‘Madonna’ is a double A-side release out in April and it great addition to what should be a great set. Their rocky sound is beefed up on this track so please make sure you turn the volume on this to the max!
Marika Hackman ‘Open Wide’
A lady who is turning heads at the moment is the mesmerising vocals of miss Marika Hackmann. MIMR could of chosen any song from debut album ‘We Slept At Last’ released 16th Feb to feature on the playlist. ‘Open Wide is a great track, perfectly delivered and nu-folk at its very best. Marika has admitted that ‘she is drawn to the darker melancholic side of things’ and this is a pretty swell thing’
Houdini Dax ‘Apple Tree’
Closing this week’s MIMR playlist is Houdini Dax, a band who MIMR think have a got a very bright future indeed. This new single ‘Apple Tree’ certainly increases this fact and presses all the right buttons. Released 1st March it’s a no nonsense, rock n roll anthem with ferocious power pop vibes and electrifying and clever lyrics. These guys from Cardiff watch out for them, you’ve been told!
