Malcura – Malcura II

Almost exclusively made up of flamenco guitars, drums and a bass, the band use ambient vocals to really leave a lasting impression. Whilst listening to ‘Malcura II’, you can tell that the band have had hours of fun making it, the album holds a variety of different moods and feels almost like a carnival. Stand out tracks like ‘The Little Ox’ and ‘The Ballad of the Humble Space Jockey’ see the band convey melancholy tones with huge climaxes.

YAANG – Security Dave

Salford based electronic duo, YAANG have recently shared their newest single, ‘Security Dave’. ‘Security Dave’ was written by member Davey Moore, who used the track to personify the mindset he had when working as a security guard and the person he had to emulate in his role. Intriguing and interesting instrumentation pair wonderfully with the lyrical storytelling here. ‘Security Dave’ has a street fighter-esque music video to accompany it. 2021 looks bright for YAANG.
