Cosmic Strip’s latest single doesn’t boast the energy of its name, but it’s a hell of a trip.
You’d think with a name like Sugar Rush, the latest single from dreamy shoegazers Cosmic Strip would be an adrenaline burst of sheer psychedelic energy. Instead, the band subverted expectation and dropped a mesmerisingly irresistable slice of psychedelia that echoes the atmosphere of The Horrors at a stead, hypnotic pace.
Marshalled by supremely talented frontwoman Camella Agabalyan, the London outfit have already attracted a ton of praise with widespread acclaim throughout the online community. With the band’s debut EP also dropping today, it’s a perfect gateway drug to get you hooked on Cosmic Strip.
“I wanted to write a song about the feeling of addiction whether it’s sugar, love, a drug, whatever your vice is”, Camella stated. “I personally really connect to dreamy, druggy songs like Air, My Bloody Valentine, Beach Fossils, Slowdive, The Jesus & The Mary Chain etc so I wanted to inspire myself from that feeling but also show the darker side of addiction that you might not always get from those types of songs.”
UZ reaffirms his position as one of the hottest acts in trap.
Leading the way as one of the most consistent artists in the trap scene, UZ is about to embark on another tour. He toured his most recent LP The Rebirth in a global tour, and will now head to North America for the UNDERGRND tour.
He will be joined by talented Kiwi producer Montell2099, with whom UZ has just made a single of the same name. They bring a serious dose of depth and cinematic energy to the table with their UNDERGRND, which is packed with suspense and bassline depth. The single features jaw-dropping production, and certainly works as a great momentum-builder for the duo’s show dates.
Give UNDERGRND a listen here. If you want to find out more information on the tour, and how to grab tickets, head here.
ALt-rock outfit’s latest single offers an endless onslaught of sound.
Rising alt-rockers FEVA storm back into the limelight with gripping new single Uneasy, furthering their reputation as one of the North East’s biggest emerging indie talents.
With a seemingly endless production line of ready-made anthems, the Newcastle quartet continue to impress with their heaviest release to date, a relentless onslaught of noise that draws welcome comparisons to the likes of Sundara Karma and The Amazons.
“It’s not as much of a story but more of a statement”, the four-piece reiterated. “The expectations of life can often leave us well and truly out of our comfort zone, torn between yesterday and tomorrow. Uneasy is a punk song at heart, simple and very, very angry. Forget yesterday, forget tomorrow, you’ll get it right eventually.”
Latest offering is a forward-thinking dubstep-edm bonanza.
We’ve got high praise for Minnesota’s bass label Outer Realms, because it keeps on doing the damn thing and doing it well. It releases a brand new EP from Canada’s very own Pigeon Hole this week, who have been switching between festival shows and studio time to make Noise Parade.
Something of a forward-thinking release with roots in trap, dubstep and bass, their technique is nothing short of dazzling throughout. Look out for atmospheric builds with the EP’s starting point Wolves, before getting pacier and more intense in its follow up Front Row.Symbols is a drum-led wonder and we’re pretty hooked on Chamber, which is a murmuring finale to the whole ensemble.

This is probably the strongest future bass drop of the week.
Precognition is probably the biggest EP this week has to offer.The producer behind it is the somewhat mysterious oddprophet, who popped up on Never Say Die’s Black Label imprint with a collection last year. Having worked on his sound and style over the past twelve months, he now releases this four-track banger.
It’s little wonder dubstep titan SKisM has taken oddprophet under his wing. One flick through Precognition and it will leave you reeling at its quality. The loaded Check comes in thick and fast with almost anthemic swagger, before Never Knew keeps you guessing with its quick switches.
The title tune will provide you with that edgy, cavernous “classic” sound, and our favourite, Listen, will make sure you don’t forget about oddprophet for a long time to come.
