Editor’s Playlist: 20 July 2015

Glittertind 2015

What’s that? Monday again? Well, don’t worry too much – we’ve got a brand new playlist for you to listen to and enjoy! Check out our picks from the last seven days…

Glittertind – Enno nær
Okay, it’s official. I’m going to see Glittertind twice in November, after a whole ten years of being a fan! Naturally I’ve been listening to them a lot since hearing of the dates (see the list of shows here) and additionally, this week the band have also shared footage from a recent performance they did of their song Enno nær. As the video doesn’t appear able to be embedded, click here to give it a listen and watch. You won’t be disappointed, of course.

Biters – Restless Hearts
Biters are getting ready to release their great new album Electric Blood and Restless Hearts is an excellent cut from the piece that shows just how much the band have to give, so it was the perfect choice for a single. A fantastically energetic piece with a great kick to it, you’ll be singing along before you know it!

Alfahanne – Skallerormsgift
There’s still a little while until Alfahanne’s second album, Blod Eld Alfa is released, but the band have recently unveiled a brand new song from it – after premiering it on the Radio One Rock Show, the song was released for streaming via Soundcloud. The track features Kvelertak frontman Erlend Hjelvik on guest vocals and if you loved the band’s first album, then chances are you’re going to fall in love with this song too.

Elasea – Lost In The Dark
Last week, I introduced you to a promising band called Elasea, who are currently gearing up for the release of their EP Where I Belong. Lost In The Dark is the first single to be taken from the EP and it’s an absolutely stunning listen that plays on the band’s strengths, giving the listener a fantastic insight into what they can expect from the rest of the release. Listen and get involved!

The Lion And The Wolf – Perfect Threes
I recently had the pleasure of catching Thomas George, aka The Lion And The Wolf, perform a show at the Star And Garter in Manchester and it was a wonderful experience. There was a real sense of community in the room and everyone was so involved that it meant the atmosphere was amazing from start to finish.
