Cures And Curses’ ‘Lost Out’ Is One You Can’t Miss Today

Cures and Curses’ killer new single ‘Lost Out’ is a beat heavy, atmospheric listening delight. The alternative rock duo made up of Aaron Akpojaro and David Blackburne are based in Liverpool, UK. ‘Lost Out’ has that emotionally driven sound that we are always drawn to, the lyrics are full of sentiment, the heart-stopping choruses are beautifully balanced out by those moody and moving verses, this seems like a rock duo that can (and will) provide more and more great tracks in the coming months.

Cures and Curses’ EP is set for release mid 2018 with no official release date as of yet. This track ‘Lost Out’ is the follow up to their debut track ‘Fall Apart, Crash Together’ which you can check out Here

I think after listening to these first couple of tracks by Cures and Curses anyone who is interested in the type of music we rave about over here at NoiseFlash will be eagerly awaiting another release from the guys, very impressive stuff. These guys really are one to watch in 2018, stoked for what’s next.

ATTENTION! New Bilmuri track!

So at the end of 2017 we did a top 50 countdown of our favourite albums of 2017 and Bilmuri’s ‘Banana’ took our number one spot with ease. The energy and all out wonder of that album really did knock us off our feet. Well, less than a year on and the mastermind behind Bilmuri, Johnny Franck is back again with the new song ‘Gradient’ which is another two minute, fast paced, emotion twister of a track.

Along with the new track Bilmuri’s track list for the upcoming album was released on instagram last week! To say we are stoked for this inevitably sick album is an understatement. Album of the year two years running?? Maybe.

Acadia’s Aptly Named New EP ‘All Heart’ Review

Where do I start with Acadia’s new EP? These guys have grown massively since their previous release, which in itself was a fantastic record. But this time they’ve outdone themselves with the outstandingly heart breaking new EP ‘All Heart’. Hailing from Portland, Maine Acadia have proved with this record that they have the ability to stand up with the big guns.

Not only is the new EP structurally fantastic, its heavy on the heart lyrically, which is always a real winner for me. If you’re looking to really feel something and you want raw, honest lyrics that will definitely move you then you really will find that and so much more in All Heart.  Into this record Acadia have clearly poured every ounce of passion, it explodes with love, with sentiment and epic feeling from a band who are sure to go on to amazing things

Its the vocals that really pulled me under, which in my opinion are simply transcending, at times they cut deep with a growl and a gravelly tone and other times they are taking you to far away places with out of worldly high notes, partner these vocals with the sincerity in the lyrics and I am won over and I promise you will be too. The EP keeps us interested all the way through with never a dull moment from the guys. The record drops on 2/2 and these guys are a huge one to watch this year.

in the meantime check out the lead single taken straight from All Heart ‘Dryspell’ is one hell of a track. Have a listen and be sure to check out the EP when it drops on Friday!

American Arson’s PVRIS Cover is Everything Today

American Arson bring raw, honest rock to the table and they do it so damn well. Their latest EP ‘Waymaker’ which was released last year blew our minds and effortlessly made us sit up and listen to what these guys had to say.

Their latest work is an outstanding cover of the Pvris track ‘No Mercy’ putting their brilliant American Arson stamp on it. These guys are just going to get better and better. Enough chit chat, check it out below!

Check out the heart felt new track ‘Forever’ from Percival Elliot

Hailing from the south coast of England Percival Elliot are an indie-folk rock duo made up of Olly Hite and Samuel Carter-Brazier. Their music boasts a beautiful soundscape that seems to place a nostalgic and soothing feeling upon the listener. With their highly anticipated new record Save Your Soul set for release early this year and sold out shows around the UK already under their belt, Percival Elliot are one to watch in 2018.

Their latest release Forever hugely impressed me upon first listen, it may not be as in your face as a lot of the music reviewed or talked about over here at NoiseFlash but it grabbed my attention for different reasons. It grabbed my attention for its captivating beauty and an incredible softness which seems to provoke a million different emotions all at once.

Forever is the first single to be released off the upcoming album Save Your Soul. The track centres around eternal love, Hite stated ‘Forever is about a chance meeting with someone. Sparks and butterflies, even if its just for a second, that feeling can last forever’. This is a feeling we can all relate to, and the song brings all them emotions to the surface.

One of the most wonderful things I noticed about this track was the layering of the song, with string quartets, spine tingling vocal harmonies and piano melodies that make the hairs on your arms stand up. These guys deserve a few minutes of your time to check out the new single, after one listen you’ll be searching for more tracks, promise you that.  You can check the track out for yourself below and go give the guys a like on Facebook or a follow on Twitter through the links provided.

Check Out The New Moose Blood Video Here!

In a smoke filled room we find our guys playing out their new single on the new video, Moose Blood have come a very long way in the last few years and it’s not hard to see why, their sound is incredible, their lyrics are honest, down to earth and so damn relatable. The new track ‘Talk In Your Sleep’ follows that same pattern, giving us all new Moose Blood in the same amazing way.

Moose Blood have always lay all their cards on the table and worn their heart on their sleeve, this is what I love so much about them. The gut wrenching vocal performances always compel me to pay such close attention to their lyrics. ‘Talk In Your Sleep’ is delivered so fantastically that it’ll be hard for anyone to bad mouth it, I love it and here it is below along with the lyrics for you to enjoy, which I’m 100% sure you will.

You can catch them on tour around the UK in Early March with The Dangerous Summer. They hit the US in late March all the way through until April with Lydia and McCafferty. (Full tour info below the video). I Don’t Think I Can Do This Anymore will be out March 9th on Hopeless Records and already I can see it as a 2018 album of the year contender! Check it out!!

Packing up your things again

And I thought we were past this

I don’t need reminding

Of something I can’t forget

I’m real sorry to my mother

Cause I know how much you loved her

This could’ve been so different

It’s just too hard to move on from yet

And I’d give up everything

For a moment of your time

I’d give up everything

No one ever took my eyes off you girl

And I wish that you could stay

I guess I’m always waiting for you

To come back and call my name

Like we both still felt the same

I’m miserable

And I don’t want you to know

I’ve still got your picture in my wallet

I want you to know I’ve still got it

I can’t seem to take it out

As much as I want to lose it now

I miss hearing you talk in your sleep

The sight of blood it makes you weak

And the way you look at me over your phone

And your scent all through my home

I close my eyes

You’re all I see

You’re all I hear

You’re all I need

And you don’t leave

Like the smoke in my lungs

I can’t sleep
