New Music : Round Up Sunday

Hold Your Horse Is
One of our favourite new acts from last year, Hold Your Horse Is return early in 2011 with a new single 'Forgive and Forget', which carries on where this mathy pop rock trio left off. It's quick, heavy, and fun. You can download it for free from the bands site now. // Hold Your Horse Is
Hold Your Horse Is - Forgive and Forget by Music Liberation

Previously one half of Gowns, EMA is striking out on her own with her debut single 'Grey Ship' out March 7th. It's bleak, bewildering, but utterly convincing, as EMA's courageous balance between folk and rock sensibilities collide amidst pale vocals and sonic guitar feedback. // EMA

Bag Raiders 
Signed to the excellent Modular Records, Bag Raiders recently released their self titled debut album. Very much a forward thinking dance album, the duo of Bag Raiders make things simple with big bouncy baselines and sweeping vocals from a variety of guests such as Dan Black to great effect.  // Bag Raiders

Mute Swimmer
Having recently relocated to Berlin, Mute Swimmer is an intruiging artist signed to a new Brighton based label, Burning Heart Recordings. His music is stripped right back to the core, with dark undertones running throughout the acoustic stop start track 'Song Against Itself'. It's challenging music but well worth sticking with. // Mute Swimmer
