New Music – Hoodlem, Honeyblood, Public Access TV
Your favourite new acts from Melbourne, Glasgow and New York City
Hoodlem are a Melbourne-based duo behind a couple of striking tunes like “Old Friend” and “IGOTU” (plus a dastardly cover of NSYNC’s “Girlfriend”) which sizzle with invention and intrigue. A dazzling mix of alt-pop, r’n’b and offkilter beats.
Glasgow duo Stina Tweeddale and Shona McVicar have already gathered a wave of attention for their blissful, fierce, scuzzy noise-pop. Expect follow-ups soon to their smashing “Bud” single and a bunch of shows supporting acts from Sleigh Bells to Palma Violets.
New York City brats rocking out with poppy, edgy, powerful riffs and strong harmonic hooks. The three-piece may have maintained a low-profile to date, but expect that to change after the Great Escape festival this weekend and especially if they keep producing great tunes like “Monaco”
