12 New Musical Discoveries – April 2022

Slow – Disco Lizards

Hackney collective Disco Lizards presented us with a melodic indie garage rock single called Slow this April. Instruments are satisfyingly heavy here, showing hints of psychedelia and therefore displaying a blend of atmospheric genres. .

Words – Piri & Tommy Villiers

Musical partners Piri and Tommy Villiers have teamed up once again to create another catchy house melody, this time called Words. This song honestly feels like the epitome of my music taste – my electronica heart is about to explode of joy.

I Can’t Help But Feel – Surfaces

This Texan duo are feeling good like they should again, having released I can’t help but feel this April, truly showing off their impressive vocal range. There’s no better way to describe this track other than pure indie bliss.

Ham – ZUTOMAYO

Doing these music discovery posts each month and venturing out to find genres I don’t really listen to makes me realise how much I like J-Pop. ZUTOMAYO’s vocals are undeniably faultless, so hearing her flawless voice on top of a flawless melody is a blessing to my ears.

About Damn Time – Lizzo

Usually I don’t include artists as famous as Lizzo on my blog as I’m sure she has enough promotion for this incredulous hit, but About Damn Time was just too good not to mention. I can’t remember the last time I heard a chart song this tuneful. Not since Juice, at least.

Full Time Job – We Three

Pop trio We Three is a band I can’t believe I didn’t already know about, and am really glad I found. Full Time Job just feels so fresh and new, and has been produced astonishingly well. You can tell the band weren’t trying to make something different, and we just having fun with the song, but with them doing just that I cannot compare Full Time Job to anything else. It certainly has a sense of originality and authenticity.

Insect Loop – Let’s Eat Grandma

Lets Eat Grandma never fail to make a monthly appearance on my blog, especially not now they have released their April album Two Ribbons. Looking at the album tracks, Insect Loop is one that stands out, being made up of addictive electronic sounds. Find out tomorrow where I place it in my Two Ribbons album ranking.

Sun And Moon – Anees

I can never write up one of these music finds posts without a good acoustic R&B soul melody. Anees’ vocals really take the spotlight here, being slicker than silk and smoother than velvet. We also cannot forget the gorgeous lyrics of adoration, my favourite being A song to sing on your pillow, swift as a swing on a willow.

Flyin (Like A Fast Train) – Kurt Vile

Upon this former member of rock group War On Drugs Kurt Vile’s album release entitled (watch my moves), the album track Flyin (like a fast train) is flooding with Spotify streams. The song screams Indie Folk, being somewhere in between his contemporary genres of rock and country, and is no doubt one of the strongest tracks on the album.

London – Anastasia Elliot

The haunting quality of London is prevalent right from the beginning of the song, making it all the more intriguing. Through a rock musical turn at the chorus, the atmosphere becomes more and more dramatic, giving major sing-along energy. Anastasia Elliot has the image, the voice and the sound.

Please Do Not Lean – Daniel Caesar

Daniel Caesar broke into the mainstream not too long ago, amassing over 21 million monthly listeners, and has now released a hit showcasing his immaculate impassioned vocals even more. Please Do Not Lean is the type of song that will never age, and remain one of my favourites from his discography.

Call You Out – Jaayns

A hypnotic ambience is most definitely ubiquitous in this alt piece of electronica created by Leeds based artist Jaayns. The calming mood of Call You Out splendidly coincides with Jaayns’ celestial voice and overall pace of the song.
