The Bora:Only One
Nice new tune from The Bora – Only One, takes me back to being a teenager just a bit. Reminds me of Taking Back Sunday with less screaming and more controlled vocals. Maybe a bit of Dinosaur Pile up aswell. Nice to hear a decent bit of Punk/Pop/Indie its been awhile.
Jenny Hval a Norwegian artist has recently released her fourth album Innocence is Kinky. It’s a delightfully strange one sounding somewhat like you are hearing a snippet of a song from a car radio as it drives past. Just enough to suggest its a pop or rock song but not enough to be sure. She definitely holds her inspirations tight to her chest but relays them back in her own unique way. A strange but delightful listen full of new ideas and pop/rock sensibility.
