Catfish and The Bottlemen – Soundcheck

Catfish and The Bottlemen – Soundcheck 5/5

“Soundcheck” is the new single from the as yet untitled second Catfish and The Bottlemen album. Despite their debut album, The Balcony, being met with mixed critical reviews in 2014, demand for the Welsh outfit has been consistently high with a number of upcoming dates selling out in minutes.

This is the first song to be released from what will be their second album, the snappily titled I Like It When You Sleep For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It.

Swim Deep – Namaste

Swim Deep – Namaste 4/5

If any band is trying to reinvent and alter their sound more than any other, then Swim Deep are that band. New song “Namaste” is a delectable taste of pop, far different to the sloppy indie pop that proved so popular on their debut album.
