The Smoking Hearts

The Smoking Hearts play raucous party-punk. Simple formula, well executed. This is the ideal soundtrack for jumping over a fire, throwing yourself off a roof or doing the dishes quite quickly. Whichever floats your boat.

Anyway, Simon (guitars) has picked his top 5 tracks for us. Check them out below – and follow @top5tracks or click LIKE in theFacebook box on the right for more top 5 lists. BIG bands coming up soon…

Funeral For A Friend

History of Apple Pie

History of Apple Pie are your new favourite band – these guys put together an intensely loveable blend of soft vocals, jangly guitars and uplifting melodies.

If I were making a coming-of-age-teenage-rom-com (which unfortunately I’m not), these guys would definitely be on the soundtrack. Probably at the point where the hero/heroine finally has a kiss.

Lucky for us, the band have picked out their top 5 tracks – check the list below.

Arrows of Love

Arrows of Love are like a lo-fi, young, sexed-up and angry cross between Faith No More and Sonic Youth. They’re great. I’m really looking forward to catching their live show. I imagine it’s going to be wild.

These guys may just be the present of rock and roll. Does that make sense? SURE.

Regardless, Nima and Lyndsey from the band have swung by and given us their own top 5 tracks… check their playlists below. Sweet.
