Tora – High Enough

Leave a comment
New music / Tora

After seeing Byron Bay residents Tora twice at Great Escape earlier this year, we can safely say that the Australian quintet are easily one of the most exciting acts around right now. Their intoxicating mix of shuffling electronics and experimental indie is one that’s almost incomparable, whilst being immediately accessible. Returning this week with new single ‘High Enough‘, the band are on absolute top form. Whilst it’s quite tricky to determine which of Tora’s three vocalists […]

True Noir – Creation

New music / True Noir

Brighton’s True Noir triumphantly arrived last week with their debut track ‘Creation‘, and it’s a seriously exciting introduction. Initially coming across as a sort of hybrid between London Grammar and Now, Now, as the song moves forward, fusing together elements of dreamy-electronic pop, with hints of guitar driven 90’s indie rock, everything begins to become clear. Frontwoman Megan Rees’ soaring vocals tower above beautifully balanced instrumentals, as the song comes to a climatic close, paving the way […]

Jimi Charles Moody – Other Man

With one of the most assured, and interesting voices we’ve heard in some time, Jimi Charles Moody is today revealing his second track, ‘Other Man‘, and along with it, the news that he’ll be performing a special headline show at St Pancras Old Church on 22nd June. Majestically soulful and original, Jimi has seemingly created a sound all of his own, in a musical landscape where few people are daring to diversify. Vintage organ chords […]

LEISURE – ‘Hot Love’

LEISURE / New music

Introducing themselves with debut track ‘Got It Bad‘ back in April, Auckland – New Zealand based outfit LEISURE have just shared another little something, in the shape of new track ‘Hot Love‘. A sultry, psychedelic slice of alternative blues-pop, ‘Hot Love‘ welcomes you in with a delightful reverb-laced guitar arpeggio, before crashing down with a stomping drum passage – reminiscent of ‘Brothers‘-era Black Keys. Carefully positioned synth chords, and a fragile male falsetto scream Tame […]

Starling – Take It Down

New music / Starling

Intriguing new solo artist Starling has just shared her debut track, ‘Take It Down‘. Citing the likes of Fiona Apple and Bat For Lashes as sources of influence, this her first offering to the world is a forlorn, dark, brooding piano led ballad, that is really quite exciting. Set for release on Communion Records, Starling’s wonderfully restrained and soulful vocals take the lead, as the delicately arranged verses tease what’s to come. Starling comes into her own in […]

Astronauts, etc. – I Know

Astronauts etc. / New music

In the interest of “catching up”, since this site’s been on an indefinite hiatus for the past however long (2 years+), we thought it might be a sound idea to invest some time in something we’ve had on repeat for a while. Astronauts, etc. is a project led by Anthony Ferraro, keyboardist in Toro Y Moi’s touring band, but clearly a super writing talent in his own right. ‘I Know‘, is a track which demands attention, […]

Fjord – Irrational

New music

Quebec-based duo Fjord a moment ago shared their new single ‘Irrational‘, which follows the wave of buzz surrounding the pair, since their previous single ‘Blue‘, arrived earlier this year. This latest effort is a shimmering example of finely executed electronic pop. It’s the verging-on-falsetto vocals that instantly stand out, almost ghost-like, they sit alongside exquisitely arranged RnB-tinged instrumentals, laced with echoing electronic touches, all aligning to create one of the most interesting, and impressive tracks we’ve […]

It’s been a while since we’ve posted anything here on Storms Brewing. But now we’re back, and let’s just say, the wheels are in motion. More on that soon. For now, to kick things off all over again, wanted to pass on the latest news from North-London based 4 piece, Palace. Off the back of their widely acclaimed debut EP ‘Lost In The Night‘, the quartet returned yesterday with their second full body of work, […]
