Count down to Summer with number 17 of The Hot 5! Shout out to Rooms Magazine for the support of this feature, and to illustrator Jhinuk Sarkar from Paperfig for our lovely logo. This is where we get listening at UKIT to find 5 tracks of up and coming bands around the UK that we think are worth sharing. Here we go, in no particular order…
#017-01 POLYMATH – MOVIN
Let’s introduce some summer vibes with this one man electronic act from the Highlands of Scotland. With a few ambient vocals layers throughout, this groove based track will be sure to get feet moving.
#017-02 GALAXIANS – MY SHIT IS CUSTOM
We’ll keep the dance party going with Galaxians from Leeds. Plenty of synth and instrumental good time beats. Yeah.
#017-03 GENO CARRAPETTA– ÉTERINITÉ
Another one man band, this time from London, this song brings psychedelic vibes and out there vocals. Smooth.
#017-04 JOE INNES & THE CAVALCADE – FABLE
This self described anti-folk outfit tick all the boxes; acoustic guitar, story telling vocals, fine use of a fiddle and group backing vocals. An accomplished track from London town.
#017-05 THE WITCH HUNT – WIDE AND LAUGHING
Last but not least we have The Witch Hunt from Leed, with understated yet strong guitar riffs and dark and haunting female vocals. Solid work.
