december 21SANTA CRUZ – Young Blood Rising

by Maria Haskins

This is a kick-ass track from Finnish rockers Santa Cruz, taken from the band’s recently released album ‘Bad Blood Rising’. You can pick up the album right now on the band’s Bandcamp page. It’s rip-roaring, raucous guitar-powered rock’n’roll, and definitely worth both a look and a listen.

FLATLANDS – Friday Night

by Maria Savva

Here’s a catchy rock/pop anthem to warm the wintry nights. It’s a angst-laden song that has a great retro vibe and introspective lyrics. An addictive track!

You can stream the song on Spotify.

While you’re there, check out Flatlands’ other music. The Oxford-based band released their debut EP, “Provisional Licence”, earlier this year. You can get a copy of that on their website.

Buy Flatlands’ songs at iTunes.

PALE HONEY – Get These Things Out of My Head

by Neil Schiller

Call this a generalisation if you like (it is), but you can’t beat a good Scandinavian rock band. Pale Honey are from Gothenburg in Sweden and comprise Nelly Daltrey on drums and Tuva Lodmark on guitars and lead vocals. This track is from their latest album Devotion.

I really like this. It has an industrial 80’s sound to it, for me, but with an almost ethereal filter laid over the top of it, which reminds me of that particular part of Northern Europe for some reason. Not that I’ve ever been there, but imagination is a marvelous thing. That and the odd Scandinavian novel and TV detective series…

I do this sometimes if I find out something else interesting about the band I’m featuring when I do a bit of research. In this case, carrying on the Swedish theme, I discovered they’d recently done a cover of ABBA’s ‘Lay All Your Love on Me’. It’s pretty great. It sounds like ABBA meets The XX. So here that is, as a little bonus. Enjoy.
