New Music Friday: Garden, Izzie Gibbs, Howlin’ Owls, The Abrahams

Comments are Off

The year may be drawing to a close, but the music doesn’t. Here’s four Northants corkers to, erm, uncork.

Young alt-rock four-piece Garden release their much anticipated debut EP City People are Weird today. Available on iTunes, Spotify, etc. There will be CD copies to buy at shows too. The tracks – recorded at local studio The Lodge – are ‘Such A Shame’, ‘White Wolf’, ‘I Love You And I Want You To Stay’,  and ‘We Need Guns’.

Rising grime star Izzie Gibbs always gives it both barrels, as displayed on ‘Obviously’. The mercurial and prolific 21 year-old Northamptonian won ‘Best Newcomer’ at the UK Urban Music Awards in 2016. Check the video below.

Rootsy rockers Howlin’ Owls have dropped the first single ‘Lucy’s Lagoon’, from the forthcoming self-recorded debut album Until The Moon Goes Blind – all while gigging across the region on a regular basis. Howlin Owls comprise of drummer Dave Webb, bassist Graham Park, lead singer and guitarist Morad Samaloussi, guitarist Stuart Paterson, percussionist Jamie O’Neill and keyboard and banjo player Chris Startup. You can download the song for free here, but only for a limited time. Credit to Wobblylobster for making the accompanying video.

And last but not least come Kettering’s The Abrahams, with their woozy, Flaming Lips-channelling song ‘Darling’. The four-piece “progressive folk rock skiffle beat combo” release their debut album very soon, and on this evidence that’s an exciting prospect.
