So it's our good friend The Royal Concept who have shared with us a previously unreleased track that was just recently previewed on a tv show called Arrow. It's definitely one of the more dancier tracks that the Swedes have released but nonetheless it is still of the highest quality. In a way i'm glad this was an unreleased song because this isn't the direction I would like TRC to take in the future with their debut album this year.
Hooray for the return of the Cold War Kids! Their new single "Miracle Mile" was rather unexpected but let me assure, very warmly welcomed as most of you will agree. The Californian rockers fourth studio album Dear Miss Lonelyhearts will be one of the most anticipated releases of this year (April 1st). It's pretty upbeat for A CWK song but nonetheless, Nathan Willett's trademark powerful vocals will definitely touch your heart.
Newcomers Coasts are another indie band from the UK on the rise and with a single like "Oceans" it's easy to see why. Drawing similarities to their countrymen Foals and Friendly Fires the five piece tropical guitar band from Bristol are really quite talented. With those big brooding lyrics and anthemic choruses, Coasts adds their own signature style to those tropical melodies made so famous in 2012. Here's hoping they get noticed in 2013.
