It’s hard not to like newcomers Latenight Honeymoon. The UK 4 piece successfully channels 70’s psychedelic funk on their debut track Live Your Life Without Me. Empire of the Sun and Foster the People come to mind. Recorded with producer Dan Weller (Baby Metal, Young Guns), the track was meant to embody London’s nightlife. Moreover, the band just dropped a video which was shot in an old dingy club. I do think this band is ripe for US festivals and a collaboration with a rapper would broaden their base. Think MGMT + Kid Cudi.
Check out the upbeat haunting track Numb. The track was written by Swedish songstress OhHeyMy and produced by Chicago dj/producer Goldhouse who is known for remixes like of Sam Smith, Katy Perry and Gaga. OhHeyMy says of Numb, “It’s a track set in a club-environment where everyone else is focused on partying but you can only focus on this one person taking up all of your attention. A person who makes you feel high and dizzy – a sense of being numb. And all you want is to stay in that moment, with that feeling, forever”. OhHeyMy was raised in a small village in Sweden listening to Dylan. After catching the rock n bull bug, she spent time performing in rock bands in the live circuit before finding a home in the electro driven beats world. Give it a stream.

SoCal based The Brevet are quietly flying under the radar with their version of indie rock. They nicely blend folk, country, and alt rock like indie rock icons Kings of Leon. Their collection of tunes are not built for pop radio, but for the stage. Hence, the band is finding their entry point by performing tons of shows and festivals. Aside from playing shows, the band has found success with tracks landing on 90210 and American Idol, and most recently a placement with Apple.
