It’s Friday again and what does that mean? New music of course! Whether it’s discovering a new album or listening to the latest release from a favourite artist or band of yours – we love Fridays. This new music Friday we’re switching it up a little and giving you a selection of new albums that have been released throughout the whole of July – from gen z favourite beabadoobee to the iconic Deaf Havana, check out our selection of new releases that dropped this month and get your tickets to see the artist/group live.
Gen Z icon, beabadoobee, released her second album - ‘Beatopia’ - earlier this month to critical acclaim. It is a fantastical yet deeply personal world that was formed in the imagination of a seven-year-old beabadoobee and has been carried with her ever since. Housing her most impressive work to date, the album marks a huge progression in her music style. In 14 songs she traverses fuzzy rock, psychedelia, classic singer songwriter, Midwest emo and outright pop whilst remaining undeniably herself throughout. We’d recommend giving the album a listen.
Set to tour the UK later this year in October, you can hear the new album live so don’t miss your chance to grab tickets for the various dates.
In comparison to her last album, ‘Sound Of The Morning’ is a change in rhythm and tone for Katy J Pearson. With elements of folk, indie, Americana and even synthpop in the 11 songs, each song feels personal and emotional to Katy. She appears to embrace collaboration throughout the album, with the tone of songs influenced by everything around her. Her guitar melodies, vibrant pops of rhythm and unique voice make this an album to keep an eye on, so make sure you give it a listen if you haven’t already.
If you like the album, you can catch Katy J Pearson on tour this September. Book your tickets now!
Deaf Havana’s sixth studio album offering comes in the form of ‘The Present Is A Foreign Land’, an indie pop album with blasts of their classic arena rock sound. The collection of 12 songs takes the listener on a journey of emotions with acoustic and then meaningful tracks. Speaking to us about the album, Matthew of Deaf Havana said: “I think we’d really tried to sound a certain way on our last record 'Rituals' which was obviously a great learning curve from a songwriting perspective but as a result it didn’t really feel that authentic to us and I definitely found myself getting a bit jaded with the material as time went on. Whereas this time round we didn’t try to sound any certain way - we didn’t really even listen to music! We just tried to make the songs that we wanted to hear and I’m really proud of that.”
Deaf Havana are set to embark on a run of UK shows this November, so give their new album a listen and secure your tickets to see them at the end of the year!
Well-known British name James Bay returned with his highly anticipated third album, ‘Leap’ this month to great praise with many touting it his best lyrical work and most cohesive album to date. With a mix of heartfelt, hypnotic tracks intertwined with surprising moments of rock'n'roll, it really does feel like a very personal album, the sound of his iconic guitar ever present through the 12 songs.
James Bay is also heading out on a UK tour this November and December, so give the album a listen and don’t miss out on hearing tracks from this and his other albums live!
Preposterously talented British band, black midi, have given everyone an opinion on their newest release, ‘Hellfire’ since it dropped earlier this month. The powerful, theatrical, suspenseful album displays the bands strength of storytelling at its best with each song taking the listener on a journey. CLASH described the album as, “switches between high modernism, pulp modernism, preposterous prog, a radio show, a wrestling match, an action film, and a musical.” ‘Hellfire’ is a volcanic eruption for your ears and senses.
If you enjoy the album, black midi are heading to Liverpool, Newcastle, Glasgow and Bristol this October and November, so why not bag your tickets to see them.
Eight-member psychedelic indie-pop band, Superorganism dropped their sonic and creative second album, ‘World Wide Pop’ earlier this month. The album powerfully reflects the bands time and challenges through the pandemic and lockdowns through synth-pop, sci-fi creations, some very different to their laid-back rhythm featured on other albums. Their latest album has a very futuristic feel with some very catchy tracks on it - we can see it being a popular one amongst fans, blasted this summer.
Why not listen to the album and book your tickets to see Superorganism in Brighton, Leeds, Glasgow, Manchester or London this September.
