Vibez Release Radar
It's that week again as we look at some of the hottest tracks so far and single them down to our top favourite five.
SYFTA - One Step Closer
The four-piece band from Widnes have arisen through the music scene for their love of indie rock that is unstoppable to listen to.
Their latest single 'One Step Closer' embarks on a story about a back and forth relationship that makes you feel you want them one minute but sometimes you can't stand them. Filled with rocky guitar riffs and anthemic lyrics, SYFTA have made a perfect fitting for stadium headline tours.
With plans for a support slot with The Reytons and new music just around the corner, SYFTA are becoming a band to not be reckoned with.
Jack Errington - Drunk and High
Fresh off the bat with his electro-pop single 'Not Alone', Sydney's rising pop star Jack Errington continues his high energy with his latest track 'Drunk and High'.
Taken from his forthcoming project 'Pain in Growth', Jack takes on a sombre tone with an infused mix of pop and contemporary R&B that flows alongside meaningful lyrics. All whilst taking listeners on a journey that seeps through a dark time in his life.
Taking influences from the likes of Charlie Puth, Lauv and Blackbear, Jack Errington is embracing his own sound that is soon going to be at the top spot.
Mawpit - Eat a Corpse
The alt-rock trio are back with their visceral yet satirical new single 'Eat A Corpse'.
Mawpit don't shy away from socio-political topics as their latest track questions humanity's morals whilst demanding justice for those damaged by our greed. Singer and lyricists Cait explains: "I wanted to write a song that represented the voiceless victims of humans and I think the song succeeds in portraying that feeling of disgust through the use of satire."
From dark tone and visceral lyrics to influences from the likes of Wolf Alice, Mawpit are climbing the ladder within the music scene.
Rose Gray - Same Cloud
East London rising star Rose Gray has shared her new single 'Same Cloud', a track that's packed with layers of synths and electro jittering drums which flows beside her unique vocals.
Produced by Rob Milton (Holly Humberstone), Rose explains the genesis of the track and her inspirations as: "The world had slowed down, it still feels slow. I spent a lot of days wondering how someone was feeling and if they were under the ‘same cloud’ like me. I was listening to a lot of All Saints and Moby when I wrote it. It’s anthemic and fun!”
Originally drawn to big popstars as influences, Rose now turns her eyes to 90's dance music; as she marries the heartbeat of a dancefloor and her lyrics encapsulate the moments of the sun breaking through the clouds, infusing optimism that juxtaposes the heartbreak of the track.
Now Ex - First Light
East London Now Ex are an exciting new brand that have created a unique electronic sound with a cinematic edge through their latest track 'First Light'.
The duo keeps to their nature as they mix their dark tone with driving synth alongside a new alternative pop edge. With beautiful toned vocals, 'First Light' illustrates their artistic diversity and gives us a peep into their upcoming EP.
After meeting in Oxford at University, Harry and Nick have delved themselves into the art industry from cinema and performance to now embracing their debut EP that is due later this year.
