MIMR Daily Tunes No.16: Daisy Victoria ‘Animal Lover’

Daily Tunes next introduces Indie Song-stress Daisy Victoria with her powerful title track to her new EP released August 19th.

‘Animal Lover’ is a 3 track EP and this opening track is a true delight, enchanting, compelling vocals and a forceful confidence in her abilities lifting her above and beyond anything out there currently.

Produced by Dan Austin (Pixies) her 3rd EP has already gained notable radio airplay (BBC 6 music) and it wont be long before more people can witness for themselves Daisy’s undoubted talents, MIMR says watch this space!

MIMR Daily Tunes No.15: Ravellas ‘Belong’

When you think of the northern town of Wigan its natural to associate it with pies, Rugby League and footballer Will Grigg (we’ve all sung that song) but now a new force has been unleased.

Introducing Indie Rock n Roll four-piece Ravellas with their newly released single ‘Belong’ which burns your ears in a rampant way. Grasping varying influences all across the indie rock and pop spectrum Ravellas produce a thrilling mature sound, catchy lyrics and big riffs to boot.

‘Ravellas are on fire’ rock n roll well truly captured here.

MIMR Daily Tunes No.14: Cross Wires ‘I Want Radio’

Returning to the blog and very welcome are post-punk quartet Cross Wires with the latest stomping effort. The track is double AA side along with ‘Pink Dogs’ and its released on August 8th.

The east london act come out all gun-blazing from word go, thumping beats, electrfying riffs and dominate vocals make for a forceful statement of intent.

MIMR would want Radio if songs like this were played for sure, its a punk anthem!

MIMR Daily Tunes No.13: Night Flowers ‘Glow In The Dark’

Released July 15th this is the latest effort from dreamy, indie act Night Flowers and its a pleasure to have them back on MIMR.

The London five-piece have been busy working away on new material in 2016 with a new record set for release in the very near future, ‘Glow In The Dark’ is the perfect tonic. Infectious, glittering guitars set with sweet, wavey vocals make this a true pop delight.

MIMR Daily Tunes No.12: Trash ‘Give Up’

Chesterfield Indie-poppers Trash return to the blog with their new song ‘Give Up’ which is another winner. 2016 has been a good year for the lads with increased press attention from far and wide and some exciting times spent in the studio working on their next EP too.

Being talked about as being one of the brightest young bands around currently, Trash have all the attributes to make their mark. This track impresses with dreamy vocals and spiralling guitars making for a infectious sound, something tells me what the lads have up their sleeves next is going to be worth the wait, trash-tastic!

MIMR Daily Tunes No.11 False Advertising ‘Scars’

So the False Advertising juggernaut keep barrel-rolling on and its safe to say MIMR has been their every glorious step of the way.

‘Scars’ is the b side to their recent single ‘Give it Your Worst’ from the ‘Brainless’ EP (MIMR no.1 EP of 2016 so far) and its the new video for this track that captures the essence of what the trio have created, the full False Adverting experience.

Scuzzy guitars, ferocious beats and a spine-tingly feeling throughout is what we have now become accustomed to from these guys. If your late to the party then MIMR recommends a heavy dozage of FA to bring you up to speed, enjoy the wild ride!
