After Nyne Weekend Playlist 14/8/15

Weekend playlist time again!  Let’s forget about all the rain today and remember that today is friday and it’s nearly the weekend!  Don’t forget to share the list and tweet @After_Nyne

Widowspeak – Dead Love (So Still)

The song is about a relationship the band’s Molly Hamilton had while she was a teenager. “I wrote an early version of this song when I was 19,” she told The FADER in an email.  It was one of those naive situations where I thought I was with someone and he didn’t, but the energy and emotion I’d invested in our non-relationship still made its inevitable end feel significant. The mood [of the album version] is a lot more lighthearted than the first. I’ve had so many more experiences since then that require letting things go, and I’m a lot more okay with closed doors that I used to be.” 

Ella On The Run – Rodeo Clowns

London based alt-pop artist Ella On The Run releases new track ‘Rodeo Clowns’.  Previous releases of the artist have seen support from the likes of Clash Music, Huffington Post, Candid Magazine and BBC Introducing. Ella On The Run’s laid-back vocals and synth pop vibes have been causing a stir of late, having recently supported Clement Marfo and opening for Sony-signed Tove Styrke at a sold out Hoxton Bar and Grill performance.

!!! (chk chk chk) – Freedom 15/Sick Ass Moon

Combining punk abandon and tightly-coiled dance music has always been bonded into the band’s DNA. It’s this core that has seen them outlive the mid-2000s ‘indie/dance punk’ tag and has allowed them to consistently grow lyrically and sonically from album to album.

Nai Harvest – Ocean of Madness

Nai Harvest has always had a habit of surprising people, whether by surpassing their sonic expectations of a two piece or by effortlessly skipping between genres. Racing through ‘80s and ‘90s-influenced indie rock, their recent album Hairball (Released April 2015) is propulsive and elastic, taking sharp turns into hazy garage punk and feedback-laden grunge.

Young Kato – Runaway

Premiering out on Wonderland Magazine,  Runaway tells the story of youthful ambition, freedom and self-destruction. Like the debut album the new video is centralised around the theme of impatience. Mixing Young Kato’s signature electro-pop musicianship with slightly darker lyrical content, the new video for Runaway is set have you gasping.
