Goldsmoke comes out with a new single I’m Not Looking. The track has elements of classic soul acts like Earth, Wind & Fire and the most recent Sam Smith. Ultimately, the band brings a new style to a classic sound which can be clearly heard in the track All Falls Down. The UK duo consist of of London-based brothers Tom and Nick Shirm. Additionally, BBC Three Counties Radio spun their track just before Stevie Wonder. I believe they can cross that off on their bucket list.
Mellor, the indie 4-piece hailing from Reading releases the new single Arms Length. Although, there are plenty of indie bands trying to appeal to the mainstream, Mellor does this effortlessly.

The 4 piece has been described as a mix between Arctic Monkeys, The Kooks, and The Libertines.
