We start with the welcome return one of UK’s favourite Indie-pop bands Mystery Jets with this track taken from their upcoming album. The 1st record since 2012 ‘Curve of the Earth’ out next week (Jan 15th) is the londoners most personal work to date and certainly displays a more mature, rounded sound. The anthemic feel to this track in particular looks set to make their 6th studio album a rousing success
Sweet Deals On Surgery ‘100% Hitler Free’
MIMR favourite power-punkers storm their way back on the playlist with this effort. Included in MIMR Sounds of 2016 list, the rip-rawing trio from Manchester capture the thrilling essence of the band in this track, ferocious vocals and superlative riffs make for a very-pleasing result. The best news is yet to come tho, they finally have a album ready to unleash and due for a release early 2016, ‘The Snake and The Snoozer’ will blow you away, trust me, you heard it here 1st people!
The Sisters ‘Cassandra’
Newcomers to the blog come in the form of the impressive The Sisters who are amongst a host of new bands that MIMR have listened to recently. The Indie-Rock Quartet from Manchester pack a punch with this track, a mix of poetic yet striking vocals and high-octane, melodic sound get you in the groove instantly. Another Manchester guitar band to shout from the rooftops, catching them live soon is a must!
Red Light Effect ‘Phosphorus’
Another new band that has caught MIMR’s eye in recent months have been Salford rockers Red Light Effect with this being they’re truimphant single which will be launched at a gig at Aatma venue, Manchester on 6th February. Their pulsating sound is very addictive indeed and their certainly a band all geared up for many successes. Speaking to MIMR before xmas, they described their varing influences on their music and the heavier sound that now is breaking the shackles and MIMR is happy to come along for the ride
Jack Dean ‘The Light of the Day’
The final act on this week’s playlist is the flowing, poetic sound of Singer-songwriter Jack Dean. ‘The Light of the day’ is amongst a series of tracks to be released on the 1st of each of the 1st 6 months of 2016 and by all accounts it looks like they will be a stellar collection of tunes. This track with guest vocals from Georgia Mann illustates Jack’s undoubted talent of expressing himself in his music. His crisp delivery mirrors Mike Skinner (The Streets) with the use of clever lyrics and a very personal, thoughtful approach. A great way to end the 1st playlist of 2016
