Three Become One: Kudu Blue, Thomston, Holychild

Songs for your listening pleasure.

Kudu Blue - Call Out

Oh hey there new fave band Kudu Blue. (That's like my tenth new fave band this year, isn't it? What can I say, I get around.) Kudu Blue are from Brighton and there are five of them and they're just quite good, aren't they? Like, when you listen to their new single 'Call Out' there's absolutely nothing about it that couldn't be an absolutely huge radio hit. Kudu Blue's vocalist whom I only know (know is a stretch, I read it on the internet) as "Clem" is once again so stellar on this throughout. Genuinely stick this in a bag with Fours for bands I'm most excited about doing things over the next six months or so. However the heartbreak starts at the point where their music is available on Deezer so I don't have the ability to listen to these songs at my heart's content. Good things come to those who wait though, I guess... (EDIT: Subscribed to Spotify for three months at 99p this morning, didn't I? Great work.)

Thomston - Float

Love of my entire life Thomston is back again. We can assume that 'Float' is being taken from Thomas Stoneman's forthcoming debut album can't we? Like, obviously, it definitely is. I don't know what it is about Thomston that I personally find so captivating but there's something and whatever that something is, it's present in every single track he brings out. 'Float' sounds serene and pure and packed full of nautical references which always work well in songs like this. I really can't wait for Thomston to come back to the UK and/or to release his album because both of those things would be so wonderfully excellent.

Holychild feat Kate Nash - Rotten Teeth

Holychild just released an EP, and I'm not a massive fan of it but this song is absolutely excellent and in stark contrast, I'm a massive fan of it. 'Rotten Teeth' is an excellent continuation of the songs on Holychild's debut album which was one of my favourites from last year. I never really thought that there was a place for Kate Nash in music in 2016 but it would appear I was incorrect because this collab is pretty perfect. In true Holychild style the video is absolutely nuts as well... like so nuts I'm not sure watching it in the office would be widely approved of. Catchy as fuck, this, though.
