2. “Carry Me” – Bombay Bicycle Club
You know them, you love them. And now Bombay Bicycle Club are back with something new that’s a wee departure from what we have heard from them in the past. Check it out.
3. “Liar Liar” – Cris Cab
No sooner had Kirsten trotted out the great line “Pharrell is like the truffle oil of the music world”, and I stumbled across this great track from US youngster Cris Cab. Born to Cuban immigrant parents, Cab was first discoverd by Pharrell 4 years ago and has been lucky enough to receive his mentoring since then. It sure looks to have paid off.
Keep an ear out for the distinct hints of Sting in this one – beautifully produced and definitely one of my fave earworms this week!
4. “From Gold” – Novo Amor
Time to throw a little alternative folk into the mix with “From Gold” a beautifully mellow track from Welshman, Novo Amor who presents a style reminiscent of other falsetto stars of the genre such as Bon Iver and Ásgeir.
5. “Calm My Soul” – Paper Route
This soaring, choral-backed track from Nashville-based Paper Route made it onto my list this week following a referral from one of my absolute favourite bands, Mutemath via their Facebook feed, and that’s about enough for me.
Being released late in 2012, it’s by no means a new track, but worthy of inclusion this week, nonetheless.
