On the Spotlight // JAWS

JAWS is an English up-and-coming indie band with pop, synth and alternative rock vibes. Although they may still be lacking a defined musical identity, they have definitely matured both musically and lyrically since their previous album, Be Slowly. Stay In was a good introduction into JAWS, but I would recommend listening first to Think Too Much, Feel Too Little. Its smooth bass lines take centerfield and Schofield’s vocals inflict a sort of nostalgia and longing that will nevertheless keep you coming back for more.

On the Spotlight // Manganas Garden

Manganas Garden is an up-and-coming band that I stumbled into one night on Youtube. “Slow It Down”, the first song of theirs I heard, had me floored. It introduced me to the rest of their songs on Solar Satisfaction, which continued to charm me. The Gothenburg natives produce music that blends disco-funk with indie-pop to create a modern funk groove that does not seem retrospective, like much of disco music nowadays. Instead, it brings to the table an element of soul that is unique to Manganas Garden and that differentiates them from the rest of the bands attempting to join the modern disco wave.
