RIYL: Queens of the Stone Age, Nine Inch Nails, the Headstones
London based quintet, Suzerain, is getting ready to release their sophomore album, Identity, on May 27th. The single, “Always”, from the album displays the band’s unique and smart blend of grooves, electronica and dark alternative rock.
Sad Blood, “The Worriers”
RIYL: Sunny Day Real Estate, Mineral, Texas is the Reason
These days emo may be a bit of a dirty word in some circles, but not for this London based power-trio. The band recently dropped this fun ‘unofficial’ video for their single, “The Worriers”, off of their brand new EP, Legion of Gloom. The single has an emo sound that would fit perfectly into the 90’s emo soundscape.
Ben De La Cour, “Down to the Water’s Edge”
RIYL: Nick Cave, the Rural Alberta Advantage, Leonard Cohen
American folk-sing/songwriter recently released the video for the single, “Down to the Water’s Edge”, off of his forthcoming album, Midnight in Havana. The release of the video coincides with the start of his aptly named Americanoir tour. “Down to the Water’s Edge” is a dark and melancholic, but still a very beautiful song.
VioleTT Pi, “Les huîtres de Julie Payette“
RIYL: Pagoda, Queens of the Stone Age, The Rural Alberta Advantage
It’s hard to really label Quebec artist VioleTT Pi, he’s obviously got a tonne of influences ranging from grunge, to pop, to the blues that he incorporates flawlessly into his music, but to say he’s just one would be disingenuous. Check out this single from the francophone musician’s new album, Manifeste contre la peur, which was released April 28th.
