Olympians

Today’s top 5 tracks are picked out by Norwich newcomers Olympians. These guys make excellent indie-pop, with harmonies and brass…

I think they sound a bit like Idlewild with extra synths. Like something-to-write-home-about-era-get-up-kids. They’re cracking, and you should pop them in your ears and give them a go.

Right, over to Olympians – here’s their top 5 tracks:

Slam Donahue

Happy 2013! Here’s a treat for you – pop sensations Slam Donahue have picked their #top5tracks out for us. In a nutshell, this band is an instant pop party, in the vein of Teddybears STHLM or Slam’s labelmates MGMT.

Their debut single has been produced by one of the guys from Passion Pit, they’re from Brooklyn (which is key if you want to be in a buzz-band) and most importantly, they’re a lot of fun. Expect big things this year.

Have a listen to Slam Donahue’s choices, then check out one of their own tracks below… NOW.
