Track of the week

The Futureheads – ‘Good Night Out’


‘Good Night Out’ is a part of the second 2019 release from Sunderland’s finest, The Futureheads. It’s part of a double A-side ‘Good Night Out’ / ‘Listen, Little Man!’…

‘Good Night Out’ is an easy pleaser for fans of the band and/ or anyone who loves their indie music with a side of delicious 00s nostalgia. 

While this is the first year the band have released new music since 2012, their new material maintains their signature sound and shows that The Futureheads are a tighter outfit than ever before. 

To see The Futureheads live in the North East, catch their next hometown gig at Bonded Warehouse, Sunderland on 4th September. 

Vandebilt- ‘Pushing Through’


Vandebilt’s second single ‘Pushing Through’ is a zany electro pop tune that has well and truly put the Sunderland quartet on our radar…

Vandebilt’s music sounds like a sonic hybrid of Hot Chip and Two Door Cinema club- a pretty sweet spot to be hitting by our standards. While debut single ‘Dream In Colour’ offers a more laid back vibe, ‘Pushing Through’ raises the tempo up a notch.

Multi-instrumentalist band member Jordan Miller explained to Vents Magazine ‘We wanted to write a track that hits you and then it hits you again. It’s honest and angry and intense. It’s about showing how brave vulnerability can be. Despite all the shit, as people we can still push through. I didn’t realise it at the time but I wrote it to myself.”

Next time you can catch the band live is at The Cluny on 19th July!

Cattle & Cane – Mexico


Cattle & Cane have and epic new track, ‘Mexico’. The track sees the Hammil siblings and Co. in top form, poised to take on the world when their next album ‘Navigator’ comes out…

The tune was produced by Pete Hammerton (Kylie minogue, Wandering Hearts). Of the collaboration, co-lead singer Joe states “For the first time ever, we took a step back last year and actually thought about how Cattle & Cane should sound and where we want to take it”

“Being in a band isn’t always easy and sometimes it can take some time to find your way, but this is undoubtedly the most excited we’ve ever been about sharing new music” he adds.

“We’ve always been ambitious,” explains Helen, “but I think locking ourselves away with Pete [Hammerton] for the last few months has enabled us to create some songs that really justify our ambition” she adds.

For a band that have already received airplay on BBC Radio 2, BBC 6 Music, Beats Radio and have shared stages with names such as Tom Odell, Brian Wilson, Stereophonics and Lewis Capaldi, Cattle & Cane are sure to realise some lofty ambitions.

Check them out live at Tyne Theatre & Opera House on 8th November.

Llovers – Coming Loose


Llovers fill the atmosphere with sweet synthy sounds on ‘Coming Loose’ their latest track. On it the band grapple with relatable relationship anxieties…

Llovers have had a strong output of tracks over the last couple of years. ‘Coming Loose’, their first release through newly launched label Think Tank? Records, shows that the band are continuing to improve.

The track is comparable to The 1975 and even Tame Impala with the synth heavy, psychedelic vibes presented. It’s the perfect upbeat indie pop to see you through all of the highs of festival season. Speaking of- make sure you catch Llovers this summer at Wasteland or Hardwick Live.

Bare Roots – Away Too Long


‘Away Too Long’ by bare roots not only harkens back to the golden age of rock and roll but also reminds us that nothing beats a well written tune with a belting, anthemic chorus…

‘Away Too Long’ can be viewed as a distilled version of what Bare Roots are all about. The band’s vocalist Anthony Francis explains “We’ve had Away Too Long for a while now and we’re excited to put it out there.

“We work hard on our tunes and it’s all we do. We’ve focused on the art of songwriting and music production so that we can offer the listener something truly homegrown.”

Bare Roots recently performed to a sold out crowd at Think Tank? Underground for their debut gig and they also gave a stellar performance at Hit The North at the start of May. The band are playing at This Is Tomorrow on Friday 24th May alongside Foals, Nothing But Thieves, You Me At Six and more.
