Every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, I promote the hottest Kick-Ass Indie Jams on Youtube. With today: the new single of Aabaraki, the free to download teaser of Karina and Army Of Bones’ first single of their soon to drop album.
If you’ve been digging (one of the) independent artists on the show, you’ll find all information, links and the full version of their featured jam below!
Aabaraki – Flight
With an alt-soul sound described as “Gnarls Barkley meets The Black Keys,” the four-piece band follows suit with electrifying guitar and production; deep, throbbing bass lines and a “constant pocket” on the drums that keep heads nodding. The result is a slow burn that spontaneously erupts into a full-on frenzy.
An edgy mix of pop & electronic music and free to download teaser for her upcoming EP in 2017, Karina, raised in a small Norwegian town that is awash with Viking history and Norse myth, wrote the dance floor-ready Lust from the perspective of her male friends.
The authentic and emotionally engaging sound of Army of Bones attests to this exciting new band’s understanding of how music speaks directly to the heart. Reminiscent of The Foals and early Radiohead, the band’s line up combines both experience, energy and class.
Every Tuesday, I’ll pick my personal favourite jam of the week and promote it through Youtube, blog and social feeds all week long, as my 5 Star Jam!
