They’ve been around for a while but they are just achieving the recognition they deserve and are playing V Festival this year. Listen to my favourite track from the album: ‘Icarus’.
You may know Imagine Dragons for their popular hit ‘Radioactive’ which is from their stunning debut album, Night Visions. Every track has lyrics that stick in your mind long after you’ve listened to it. Well worth a listen.
My favourite is Demons.
Although they haven’t done a lot recently, Maroon 5 still remain one of my favourite bands. Their previous album ‘Overexposed’ isn’t as good as their last 3 albums, which are less mainstream. ‘Over exposed’ channels pop tunes unlike the edgier album ‘Songs for Jane’ which will always remain my favourite. New album to drop this summer with a new single expected in the coming weeks.
Listen to their first single: ‘Harder to Breathe‘
Alternative indie rock band, Vampire Weekend have been around for a while and I was probably one of the last to latch on as a fan after not realising they sung one of my favourite songs ‘A- Punk’. Their voices are hypnotising and provide a mixture of great rock tunes to slower indie melodies.
They are playing at Reading this year. Have a listen to one of my favourites: ‘Diane Young’.
One of my favourite new albums of last year came from this band whose haunting vocals are similar to those of Keane. They are also playing at V Festival this year and are definitely one to watch.
My favourite single has to be ‘One Day‘
