new bands to recommend?

edited September 23 in Rock Music
i would recommend pull tiger tail, cold war kids- the lead singer has got such a unique voice- and an australian band called starky, really good atmospheric indie.

    I looked them up after hearing good things about them from some friends that saw them at a festival in Bristol.

    Thanks Chris, I just stumbled across this site, and already that link lead me to one of the best bands I've heard in ages! It's an awesome track. If you haven't already you should definitely check out 'Love's sick disease' on their myspace.

    Yeah, I too am diggin these tracks. Talking of Bristol bands, check out these guys.

    Saw them in Bristol Fleece a couple weeks ago and they were ace live, cool vocal and wicked energetic feel to the guitars.

    What do you guys think?

    Almost forgot, another really good new band- Rex Radio

    Download their 'Flashboy' single for FREE!!

    www.thatflashboysong.com

    Cheers!


    Rex Radio are not a household name.
    In fact, Rex Radio are barely known outside the four walls of their rehearsal studio in Bermondsey...but all this is about to change.

    The guys have been hard at work putting together their own take on things since signing to B-Unique Records and the hard work has clearly paid off.
    Their first offering is the impossibly catchy “Flashboy” that will have you tapping your feet within seconds.

    With plenty in the band’s song arsenal, you can be among the first to see for yourself as they rock through a month long residency every Monday at The Old Blue Last, London (Nov 13 – Dec 4).

    Awesome band dude, i'm gonna go check them out on their tour!

    Have any of you guys heard of 'The New Root'? another great Bristol band

    Have any of you people heard of Rufio? I would reccomend them in a heartbeat. I have no clue if they're popular in the UK or not-or even if they sell their CDs in the UK, but if you can, you should buy the CD. They rock. "Out Of Control" is really cool.

    Has anyone seen/heard Sacred Mother Tongue? They seem to play in the Northampton area quite a bit, They put on an energetic show and i was singing 'down' for ages the next day. Check out the www.myspace.com/sacredmothertongue

    I recommend you check these guys out.

    They are on the verge of something this year with Distribution in Europe and possibly Asia.

    They are 5 Piece Rock Band with a great lead singer and possibly one of the next Icons of guitar in the ilk of Jimmy Page, Hendrix etc.

    They have had some pretty big reviews and were nominated at the vodafone live music awards in 2006.

    Zenyth are an incredible band of 20/21 year olds way ahead in their musical ability, these guys in my opinion can out play The Answer/Roadstar and could be the next big Stadium band from the UK.

    Check Them Out.

    I've been quite getting into the Noisettes past few weeks - they've got an album out already so not unsigned, but on the cusp of fame. They're playing this summer's Manchester International Festival as one of the "Unknown Pleasures" bands and you'll definitely have heard of them by this time next year I bet: http://www.myspace.com/noisettesuk
