Thyrsday: Touche


DSC_0889

Very seldom does one come across a track that has the appropriate smuggness, chutzpah, emotional backstory and musical quality that could make it a potential candidate to be part of the soundtrack to a Tarantino movie. ‘Touche’, the titletrack from the soon to be released (EP) by Sydney based Thyrsdayband, is a story in itself and so much more. Lead singer and songwriter Nikki Malvar has a great playful voice that communicates so much between the lines than the lyrics seem to suggest. This vocal quality is perfect accompaniment for the brilliant bluesy riff, that is catchy as hell and paints an exquisite picture of a different time and setting. This was the teaser track from the EP, which will feature six tracks in all and is expected to be out on 15.12.2014. We shall wait with bated breath and until then make do with this musical masterpiece:

Bella Loka: Escape (EP)


A powerful husky voice, sometimes almost classical, sometimes straight out of the 80’s! Camden Town, London based synth-pop husband/wife duo Tea and David Boothby combine wonderfully to belt out crazily beautiful winners in their musical avatar, which is aptly titled: Bella Loka! Their first EP Escape bounces Tea’s gorgeous voice against infectious vibrant melodies, sometimes almost satirically cheerful and at others appropriately ambient. Give it a listen, croon and buy some tunes:
