New Music From The Inbox: Skating Polly, FEVERS, Hamilton Leithauser, Denitia and Sene, daysdeaf

By: Juliette Jagger

Artist: Skating Polly “Ugly”
Album: Fuzz Steilacoom

Before you rip this Oklahoma City-based duo for channeling to much Kurt Cobain, check out the whole video cause I couldn’t take my eyes off it. These stepsisters have more grit than any rock band I’ve heard in ages. They’re brash, greasy and unconcerned with looking “pretty.” They’re like a new age Bikini Kill.

Sounds like: “She wants to be a pretty girl / She wants to be stereo.”


Artist: FEVERS “Dance Cry Dance”
No Room For Light

Ottawa natives FEVERS, have just released a video for their infectious electro-dance-pop single “Dance Cry Dance,” and it’s all fuzzy guitars, sharp, piercing synths and momentum for miles.

Sounds like: “I wana dance, cry, dance and forget the shit that I can’t stand, I wana leave it at the door.”



Artist: Hamilton Leithauser “Alexandra”
Black Hours

This song comes on like a tidal wave and chugs along on high-hats and harmonica and hand clappin’ and foot stompin’.

Sounds like: “I don’t think back, I don’t need to, but I’m always thinking of you.”



Artist: Denitia and Sene “Divided”
Brooklyn based duo, Denitia and Sene, have returned with this stark, soulful blend of electro-hip-hop.

Sounds like: “What is love? / What is this I’m feeling right now? / Maybe you’re my drug / And I’m fiending right now.”



Artist: daysdeaf “Giving Life to Greys”
When Colour Lost Light

This one was an unexpected, unpolished beauty. Something of a conceptual project, When Colour Lost Light, from daysdeaf takes a subjective look at both the omni-present and unconscious influence colour has on identity.

Sounds like:  “We lost ourselves to each other.”
