The Midweek Mix – 07/10/15

Five songs from five new artists:

Misty Miller – Happy

Misty Miller isn’t quite as new as she might first appear, but she’s had quite a transformation since her sweeter days of blonde hair and pretty dresses. Happy is extremely catchy and I’m sure she’s going to be a Radio 1 hit.

Kid Wave – I’m Trying to Break Your Heart

I’ve featured Kid Wave on The Midweek Mix before, after I saw their great Tramlines set at the Leadmill in Sheffield, and I’m definitely a fan. This video for I’m Trying to Break Your Heart was released earlier this week.

Bully – Trying

Bully hail from Nashville and are reminiscent of 90s grunge pop. I love Alicia Bognanno’s Courtney Love-esque drawl.

The Half Earth – The Balance

The Half Earth is Sheffield’s best new songsmith. The Balance is beautifully measured and exact. It rewards repeated listens.

Billie Marten – Bird

Billie Marten has already been compared to the incredible Laura Marling, and Bird suggests that comparison may prove to be well deserved. Beautiful song, beautiful voice, beautiful video.
