Yet another great new band from Los Angeles just released this video this week. The Regrettes that take a not-so-subtle swipe at Donald Trump in Seashore, are not really out of high school yet – the frontwoman Lydia Night is barely 16. They just released an album in January and they’re coming to Europe in the fall. Can’t wait!

When in Sweden… You should really listen to some Swedish music. Forget Abba, there’s a bunch of great new music coming from the North. A perfect example are Pinemen. They haven’t got an album out yet but their latest single Predictions is a great start to summer.

Pinemen – Predictions (single, 2016)

Louis Berry really has everything he needs to be a teenage heartthrob. And he makes some great music reminiscent of the legendary Johnny Cash. I just hope he adds some variety to his album (it’s supposed to come out in 2018), ’cause things are getting a little bit repetitive. Just sayin’. Anyways, he really deserves a spot on your heavy rotation playlist.

Deranged seems to be the common adjective when writing about the Dead Pretties. You be the judge. What seems clear though is that the London band who released their debut single just a couple of months ago are destined for bigger things.

Oh yeah! Just to explain: Checklist is our new weekly showcase of new music. We’re going to be doing this every Friday morning, so if you’re up for some great new music, tune in!
