The Track of the Day today is “Cave” by Future Islands. Future Islands are another band that I’ve found through listening to Spotify adverts and they sound like a less dance-y Hot Chip. Apparently they were at Glastonbury Festival back in 2015, but I had no idea who they were back then. They’re definitely not for everyone, but could be for you!
Today marks the start of a slight change to the Track of the Day, that change being that on Thursdays I shall now use an older track and jump on the bandwagon that it Throwback Thursday. So here is this weeks throwback track which was no.1 on this day in 1995, “Boom Boom Boom” by the Outhere Brothers.
Are you Wondering what today’s Track of the Day is? Well it’s “Wondering” by post-punk/synth-pop/indie band Xiu Xiu, did you see what I did there? This track is taken off their latest album, titled Forget, which was released earlier this year.
Today’s track of the day is something special! I simply can’t get enough of “Separate Beat” by groove band Ivory Wave. It’s got that “Loaded” / “Step On” kind of feel but at the same time it’s completely different. I can’t seem to pinpoint exactly what it reminds me of, but either way it’s a killer track!
I stumbled upon Riscas while searching for indie bands for my upcoming article “An A-Z of indie” and they’re a fairly unknown british indie rock band that have so far only released two singles. “Talk Your Mind” is their most recent single and it today’s Track of the Day.
We’re going back to grime for today’s Track of the Day, with Dizzee Rascal’s latest single “Space”. A sweet grime track with a catchy hook – “Just give me three feet and an ounce of space” – that’s causing some ripples online and hints at Dizzee returning to his grime roots. Check it out!
Death From Above’s latest release “Freeze Me” is the Track of the Day today and it’s their first single since their 2014 album “The Physical World”. True to their unique high energy rock/punk style, the two piece band seem to be back in full swing under their original name Death From Above, rather than their former name Death From Above 1979.
