It’s no secret that the best music flies under the radar. Here are five songs that you’ve probably never heard that you’ll love.
RIYL: Heart, Florence + The Machine, Blondie, The Tragically Hip
Canadian-Japanese band, Stolen, have just recently dropped their debut self-titled album. “Barricade” is an excellent example of the strong and commanding vocals akin to Blondie, and their swinging and rocking riffs.
Icky Blossoms, “Living In Fiction”
RIYL: Donna Summers, Chromatics, Metric
This electro-pop track from Omaha’s Icky Blossoms latest effort, Mask, captures what made 70’s dance music great. The song is dripping in soul, and has all the excitement and swagger of the best of disco.
Inglorious, “Until I Die”
RIYL: Slash ft. Myles Kennedy & the Conspirators, Alter Bridge, Deep Purple
This supergroup features former Trans-Siberian Orchestra vocalist Nathan James and Scorpions guitarist Uli Jon Roth, and they deliver some heavy-hitting hard rock that any classic rock fan will love. And hey, they already have Brian May‘s approval!
Yak, “Victorious (National Anthem)”
RIYL: FIDLAR, JEFF the Brotherhood, Girl Band
This British trio just announced their debut album, Alas Salvation, and dropped this pulse-pounding single to accompany it. The band plays chaotic and frantic garage-punk that will have you craving more of their hyperactive riffs.
The Mining Co., “Country Heart”
RIYL: Iron & Wine, Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, Bon Iver
The single “Country Heart” off of The Mining Co’s debut album is a poignant and delicate track packed to the brim with heart. Michael Gallagher’s almost smoky voice blends perfectly with the album’s winter-like atmosphere to deliver a great track.
