OUR TOP 20 NEW RELEASES THIS WEEK-16th April 2014 (click image for artist link)
This is TEDDY, an art-pop four piece from East London who have a sound which is original, innovative and at times infectious. The Band,Tom Falle, Eddy Bailhache, Jack Gooderham and Alex Glover, are just about to release their second single 'Jacobs Armour'.This follows their debut track 'Primate' an insanely catchy song with the wonderful chorus "I’m rough baby, I shit everyday and I think about dying” .How many tracks start with a xylophone and after forty seconds stop for five seconds, but it works so well. The gap seems so right as the jaunty percussion takes over along side a fuzzy guitar purring out simple, yet wonderful riffs.
Teddy's stunning second single is due for release on 21st April. This track begins with a piano over a quiet drumbeat and gloriously builds into a mesmerizing epic of a song. The track has a more rockier feel to it, pounding drums and guitar riffs, all pulled together by the backdrop a of stirring piano arrangement. There are so many parts to this song, including a 'Bohemian Rhapsody' moment in the the middle, that the listener is never sure which direction the song is going, but never disappoints. You may never of heard anything like Teddy before, give them a listen. The offical launch party for the new single is 25th April and there are still tickets available at www.wegottickets.com
