Thanks for coming back for another New Music Friday here at The Indy Review. We hope you’re all still safe and healthy out there, and finding something productive, creative and positive to do with yourselves.
It’s not much, but we try to help by promoting some awesome artists out there in hopes of helping them find some new fans with all of you. You may already be familiar with the super-talented Norah Jones, but still think you should have her new album out today on your radar. The same goes for the funky and fresh SoCal group Wargirl, who are dropping their second album today. And if you have a craving for some solid indie rock with classic rock influences, look no further than the latest from Mondo Cozmo.
As always, there’s some really cool new tracks from across the spectrum that should make their way through your ears over the next week. Political aggro-rock trio Fever 333 are back with a racer, while the new drop from Leon Bridges is pure sweet, smooth soul. Ruston Kelly‘s latest is another thoughtful and melancholy slice of alt. country, while Gorillaz are showing off another new track from their Song Machine series. And keeping in line with yesterday’s Throwback Thursday post, Black Pumas have released a cover of Tracy Chapman‘s classic “Fast Car”.
British singer-songwriter superstar Tom Walker has returned with a new track, and skyrocketing alt. pop duo Surfaces have a new song out featuring the one and only Elton John. Things get a little heavier with the new song from Mongolian throat-singing hard rock group The Hu, and get a little more romantic with the new one from Zac Brown Band that he premiered on John Krasinski’s Some Good News show.
Hear all of these tracks and more in our New Music Friday Playlist!
