The Playlist: Temples / Beck / Phoenix
The songs that are hot on our playlist this week
Colours To Life
Noel Gallagher recently declared Temples releases to be more important than an Oasis reunion – which goes to show how highly the rarely-humble guitarist rates this excellent Birmingham-based band.
I Won't Be Long
Despite promising an acoustic album later this year, many of Beck's new tracks are synth-led pop songs (above). How the new LP will sound is anybody's guess.
Trying To Be Cool
A video for the French indie-dance band's new single was released last week as part of a collaboration with the Creators Project and Spanish music video directors CANADA.
Only 1 U
Released via London-based internet radio station NTS, this new track is likely to appear on forthcoming album 'Matangi'.
A highly emotive power ballad that is at once melancholy and warm (pictured).
As the song title suggests, there are no guest stars on this new Hodgy Beats release .
Packed with reverb and fuzz, Metz's new single recalls a post-hardcore The Jesus and the Mary Chain.
