Singles of the Week

Another gloomy Sunday evening with Monday's dark spectral shape looming before you, so what better way to console yourself than with some of the best singles to reach our ears in a long while.

Tullycraft - Lost in Light Rotation
We'll pull up our anorak hood and pull the toggles real tight 'cos Tullycraft have passed us by, despite have flown the flag for US twee since the mid-90s. As a taster for their forthcoming album of the same name (via Fortuna POP! natch) this certainly bodes well, displaying several genre motifs (nasal vocals, femme back-ups) and even a BIS reference. (DB)

Tullycraft - Lost in Light Rotation by Fortuna POP!

lf Arnalds - A Little Grim
The first offering from lf Arnalds upcoming new album is a delightfully quirky piece of sweetly sung oddness with a nicely understated arrangement and some wonderful layered vocals. It may be a little bit too Bjorkish in places but the sheer beauty of Arnalds voice can't fail to win you over. (GB)

Tremonti - Wish You Well
With the release of 'Wish You Well', the third single from his debut All I Was record, Tremonti continues to distance himself from his previous incarnations in Creed and Alter Bridge. Some seriously heavy riffs married with a canny knack for a catchy hook makes this a rather pleasing little piece knock a few brain cells out with. (DH)

Sukh - Kings
The world of the singer songwriter is a very crowded one so it takes a lot of skill and luck to get yourself heard. 'Kings', the debut single from Manchester based Sukh, displays plenty of the former with, it's jangly and jaunty rhythms instantly attaching itself to your brain, but only time will tell whether he gets enough of the luck needed for wider recognition. A promising start. (GB)

Single of the Week
Seriously difficult to choose just one winner as this is a bonafide crop of top tunes that all deserve the limelight. Frightened Rabbit 's most excellent 'The Woodpile' ekes out ahead however.

Frightened Rabbit - The Woodpile
With anticipation high for album number four, Frightened Rabbit wisely stick to the formula. 'The Woodpile' inhabits a similar galaxy to the more epic corners of the Biffy Clyro universe - and won't impede their obvious trajectory towards some of the bigger festival stages this summer. (DB)
