Metric have been around for a while, but this is the first song I’ve heard by them, and it’s flipping good. Synth filled, and as catchy as a cold, this goes down as a bit of an indie hit for me, can’t stop listening to it! There’s also an equally brilliant acoustic version.
Atlas Sound have a great sound, just started getting into their latest album Logos, which I’ll probably review soon enough. This song features Animal Collective’s frontman Noah Lennox and has a sound quite similar to his own stuff, whimsical and catchy and dreamlike and brilliant.
Delorean could be compared to Cut Copy, Phoenix or even Friendly Fires, i.e. they’re great. Their electro sounds are layered like a tasty lasagne, with no extra cheese. Infectious and summery, this track, along with the rest of their new EP Ayrton Senna is definitely worth checking out.
Finally, as we patiently await Vampire Weekend’s 2010 release, here’s a track from it to whet your appetite. This may be the closest Vampire Weekend have come to a punky sound yet.
