While we love to focus our attention on musicians and bands from Northern Ireland, we receive submissions from all over the world. Our new No Fixed Abode feature will shine a light on some of these other artists.
Okay Mann – A Lot
Canadian Katlin Mathison – otherwise known as Okay Mann returns with his latest driving alt rock anthem. A Lot is a letter to yourself, an ode to depression, a hard look in the mirror. Fans of Frightened Rabbit and more locally Amidships will find lots to enjoy here.
The Jode Gannon Band – Sunken Ships
The opening to Sunken Ships is a deep dive into soulful, nearly mournful vocals. Once it hits the 2 minute mark the instrumentation expands out leaving a moving and powerful motion. A solid debut release from the Oxfordshire four piece.
Artio – Queen Cobra
If the opening alone doesn’t have you longing for the return of a sweaty mosh pit with an intense strobe light, do you even enjoy live music? An intense and bruising effort in no small part due to the effective use of synths that makes it far from your standard rock anthem.
Spice Jar – I Can’t Sleep
Columbus two piece Spice Jar originally started as a side project but the strength of their music highlighted to the two piece that it should be their main musical outlet. I Can’t Sleep fits the mould of being fast, catchy and full of riffs but being introspective and melancholic lyrically. For fans of Modern Baseball and Dinosaur Jr.
Sisters O Sisters – Rose Coloured Waters
Rose Coloured Waters is the debut single from South Wales band Sisters O Sisters. The Beatles influences are pretty obvious but the band throw in enough swagger and tempo changes along with their own vocal stylings to make them more than just a tribute act.
HOAX – Beach House ii
Moving away from our typical disposition towards straight up indie rock and instead traversing the realms of soulful R&B. The bass has a groovy feel to it that meld well with the tender yet decisive vocals on offer. The perfect track to explore sentimental feelings of uncertainty amidst unwavering love and desire
The Haunted Youth – Coming Home
Everyone needs a dreamy anthem to fuel their summer adventures. If you haven’t found yours yet, Haunted Youth may be able to fill the void. Think Tame Impala crossed with The War On Drugs and you’re not far away. Perfect for your next road trip.
