Submission Showcase: July 6th – 12th 2015

BY JAKE WILLS-BENNETT

‘Submission Showcase’ is a weekly column where we go through songs submitted to us and showcase the best ones. If you’d like to submit music to us, find out how to here.

Oh Geronimo – The Flood

Toronto-based indie band Oh Geronimo‘s new single ‘The Flood’ actually comes from a story about how the singer of the band’s basement-bedroom flooded one winter. The song itself mixes elements of indie, post-rock and even folk (little bit of banjo which sounds fire!), topped by clean vocals for an overall wonderful sounding song. Check out the song (and the second part of it!) below, and look out for more from these guys soon.

 

Ferris Wheel Jay – G5

Backed by a great sounding beat, produced by the TrakFormaz (who did ‘Off The Rip’ for French Montana), Brooklyn rapper Ferris Wheel Jay provides some dope lyrical content about that one special someone in his life. Almost like a perfect mix of east coast boom-bap and slight RnB. Listen below as always and check his other tracks too.

 

Raw Fabrics – Dead Instruments

LA band Raw Fabrics‘ new single ‘Dead Instruments’ sounds very weird, in the best way possible. It’s a mix of punk rock and electronica, taking the instrumental content and vocal styles of the former, while blending them with the effects usage of the latter, giving the guitars in this track an almost-washed out vibe. Really unique. This track will be released as part of the Plastic Joy EP on July 18th, but you can stream it below.
