🎧 Pozi – ‘The Nightmare’

Just recently we came across the new single by London post-punk trio Pozi and it’s been on repeat ever since. Imagine CSS and Los Campesinos! had a lovechild… The Nightmare would be the result. The track will be included on their upcoming 5-song effort, 176, due for release on July 3rd via Prah Recordings.

“Taking its title from the eponymous London bus route that runs from Penge to Tottenham Court Road, 176 contains themes of paranoia, social anxiety, jealousy and the accompanying nightmares these can create. All five songs have quite grim, dark subject matter. Once we’d started exploring that paranoid, angsty kind of path, the floodgates seemed to open and we ran with it”

Take a listen in the embed below and be sure to hit up their Bandcamp page to check out their other single Whitewashing.

πŸŽ₯ TBT: Diamond Rings – ‘All Yr Songs’ (2010)

The year is 2010 and the indie music scene is hitting its stride here in Toronto. Enter John O’Regan and his D’Urbervilles (pre-Matters) side-project Diamond Rings… everything points to a bright future for indie-show-goers in the T-Dot. That said, we’re not sure there’s a song that reminds us more of that time period like All Yr Songs; a track we will never tire of.

Check it out in the embed and hit up John’s most recent project JG Ballad at the ‘listen’ link below. There’s some killer covers on there only he could create… and we mean that in the best way possible.

🎧 Southern Shores – ‘Estrisa’

It’s been a minute since we’ve heard from Toronto electronic-pop duo Southern Shores. Just recently we came across their new single, Estrisa and we can’t take this thing off repeat here at The iM. The song conjures up memories of late 00’s era Delorean and Air France; wispy and carefree, sun soaked vibes that leave us longing for a day at the beach.

Check out the track in the embed below and be sure to visit their socials for more. The new EP, Siena (Part I) is due for release via Cascine on June 12th.
