Get Inuit ‘My Oh My’
Another week and another playlist on MIMR starting this time with MIMR favourites Get Inuit with their latest creation, the raucous ‘My Oh My’. One of MIMR Sounds of 2016 acts are starting the year firmly on the front foot with a track brimming with cheery vocals and flambuoyant hooks to die for. Certainly a band on most people lips at the moment including more than favourable supporters on Radio 1 which bares well for a successful 12 months. Catch them on a headline UK tour starting this week to witness their indie-pop wizardry yourselves.
Next this week is the return to the playlist of the excellent Simmer who are all geared up for a very busy and exciting 2016. The punk band from Cheshire, now a 4 piece, reveal the gripping 2nd single ‘Charles’ from their upcoming debut LP ‘Paper Prisms’ released Feb 27th and what a record it promises to be. This anthemic track is a real eye-opener with bruising guitars and hazy vocals which make your hair stick on end. Expect the album to be near the top of MIMR wishlist next month, it should be yours too.
The Showers ‘Bella’
Good Friends of the blog and top guys The Showers give us a treat with this brooding track ‘Bella’ released through Sunny Manchester at the end of this month. Its a mix of scratchy riffs and belting vocals which are hard not to admire. After last year’s ‘Smile and the Trees Will Hold You’ EP release, its safe to say the Macclesfield quartet are ready to take their music up a notch, the raw intensity of this track alone achieves that in the bucket loads
Vivenne The Witch ‘Dreams and Pain’
MIMR doesn’t shy away from looking further afield for the best in new music and this is proven here by the next act on the Playlist, Italian Alt-Rock trio Vivenne The Witch . This track is extracted from their new album ‘Shadowbox’ (release date Jan 29th) which MIMR has had a sneaky listen and its a real winner. Scuzzy guitars and chillingly good vocals, with no-nonsense attitude that hits all the right buttons, a real triumph!
Tyrants ‘Chinese Whispers’
Finally on this week’s Playlist we have the spirited, indie-rock trio Tyrants. Hailing from Lincoln the guys have already had a fair amount of interest from local press and show the determination to succeed in a highly competitive music scene. ‘Chinese Whispers’ is a classic uptempo rock track, flowing Lyrics and infectious, catchy guitars and has certainly been on repeat on the blog recently. Be sure to keep an eye out for Tyrants again on MIMR very soon
