ANOTHER fantastic week for music brings us new tunes from Glasgow’s Dead Pony, the ever-brilliant Man of Moon plus brand new music from Taylor Swift, The Rolling Stones, Larry Pink The Human and more are added to the TTV NEW MUSIC RADAR PLAYLIST.
MAN OF MOON ‘STRANGERS’
Arguably one of their greatest tracks to date, Man of Moon are fresh from releasing a series of remixes featuring the likes of Django Django with their brilliant new tune ‘Strangers’. Packing a punch from the first second, the track brings the band onto the dancefloor and into the light with a catchy beat, melody and hypnotic lyrics. Check it out:
Glasgow’s newest post-punk exports Dead Pony continue their relentless ascent with fiery second cut ‘Sharp Tongues’, set for release July 24th via LAB Records. Confident, assertive and dripping with rage, the fearless quartet’s latest effort justifies the excitement surrounding the thriving Scottish scene.
MARK MCGOWAN ‘SIMPLE’
Mark McGowan is back with a new tune, ‘Simple’ and simply put, this is a tune that deserves worldwide recognition. It’s beautiful in its simplicity, lyrics and production – all showcasing how McGowan truly is a cut above the rest. Speaking about the song, he said: “It’s about things falling into place and the contentment that comes from that. It was written like that as well. It happened quick and I love that. It’s a happy song.” Listen and stream below:
CARA ROSE ‘THIS NIGHTS MAN’
After releasing a brilliant cover of Bob Marley for TTV’s Stream 4 Scotland line-up earlier this summer, Cara Rose is back with a brand new tune. 2020 will see Cara release her debut EP, produced by Matt Ingram (Lianne La Havas, Laura Marling). Check out the new tune below:
CRAWFORD MAC ‘DEPENDS ON WHERE YOU STAND’
Ahead of his debut solo album set to drop in the fall, Glaswegian singer-songwriter Crawford Mack teases listeners with new offering ‘Depends on Where You Stand.’ With his music and lyrics drawing from a voracious appetite for reading of literature, ‘Depends on Where You Stand’ weaves a string led melody of guitars and strings around the tale of two individuals struggling to find a middle ground of communication. It is simple, effective and affecting. Listen below:
DJANGO STEWART ‘BURNING BRIDGES (FOR YOUR LOVE)
Laden with infectious melodies and driven by a palpable beat from the get go, this debut offering firmly asserts Django’s arrival as a future one to watch. Directed by Muller, and steeped in neon visuals, the video features Django under the lights, recounting the highs and lows of love and heartbreak, cut with exquisite choreography, all wrapped up in an uplifting disco pop sound.
Django comments; “‘The track is about being in a relationship that’s dying, and subsequently falling in love with someone else. I was in the Bahamas when I was sent the beat. Me and Tyler Aubrey , who features on the track, danced around talking about crushes and wrote the whole thing in a heartbeat.”
ANOTHER SKY ‘ALL ENDS’
Another Sky have released ‘All Ends’, taken from their upcoming debut album ‘I Slept On The Floor’, due for release on 7th August via Fiction Records. Listen to the track here. Vocalist and lyricist Catrin Vincent had to say on the track:
“We wrote All Ends in a dark place. As a kid, I was bullied, so I moved to London to try and prove everyone wrong. In London, I saw a mural on a wall that said “we are only individuals in the context of each other” and realised my whole worldview had to change.”
