Music Singles Roundup 24/04/20

Hello and welcome to the brand new segment here on the Almost Anything Media page. This is a brand new post where I pick out five of the latest and my favourite tracks to give everyone a taste of what is going out in the world – music-wise. This is where I’m going from genre to genre for any type of track so anything goes in this!

First up is Strange Bones. The Blackpool rockers recently released a cut off of their released a new EP, ‘Blitz PArt 2’, which was released the other week.

Bobby (vocals) has said: “It’s about forgetting how to breathe, understanding mistakes. It’s an acknowledgement of reality, consequential in moving forward. Finding no peace when your head is a minefield.”

 

Continuing the heavy hits are Welsh protegees Holding Absence with their recently released single, ‘Birdcage’ which acts as the second half off their double A-side single, ‘Gravity/Birdcage’.

On the track Lucas Woodland, frontman of the band has said:

“‘Birdcage’ is probably the most poppy track we’ve ever released as Holding Absence, and we’re really proud of the outcome. Working with Romesh Dodangoda (Bring Me The Horizon/Twin Atlantic/Don Broco) gave us the great opportunity to refine our sound in a way we’d not yet tried before, so the aim for this track was to make it as catchy and sleek as possible. We’re very happy with the outcome and can’t wait for people to get their hands on the double-sided picture disk!”

Check out the track below.

 

We’re going straight across the pond for this next act two is Singer/Songwriter The Homeless Gospel Choir (Derek Zanetti) whom has shared a new track ‘Blind Faith’/

It’s the latest track off his record, ‘This Land Is Your Landfill’ which was released today. On this track, he’s said:

“There’s a sparkle in the eye of those in positions of power when the people are scared, paranoid, and in need of guidance. The danger with Religion is that it holds hostage common sense and good basic reason for something that is intangible, unexplainable, and without proof. Theres is a comfort in blindly following something. I think people feel secure with clinging to an answer even if they know that the answer they have is wrong. That’s what they are banking on, and that’s the scariest part.

This song is about continually witnessing others getting beat by blindly following something they know is broken, and not being able to get through to them.”

 

Heading across to a little band across the pond in LA, California known as Point North who have ‘A Million Pieces’ for the masses. In 2019 they signed over with Hopeless Records and now they have something more to add to their arsenal for their Alt-Pop fans.

“‘A Million Pieces’ is pretty much me talking myself down and letting myself know that I have to pick myself up. It’s about forgiving myself for my guilty conscience and reassuring that everything is going to be ok.” Says Jon Lundin 

 

And lastly today we have Patent Pending featuring Waterparks frontman Awsten Knight.

It’s funky, fresh and fantastic where you have two great bands coming together to collaborate on something great in these trying times plus it brings the bands back together from when they toured the UK together in 2018.

Check out the track below.

And that brings about an end to this week’s Music Singles Roundup! Be sure to check back soon for another look at some great new tracks!
