Five For Free #260

Yuri's Accident - Lights (On Her Eyes)

More sounds from Greece, although Yuri's Accident are currently based in London after forming in Athens around four years ago. 'Lights (On Her Eyes)' is the band's first proper single and video and shows them exploring the realms of driving alt-rock with just a touch of new-wave thrown in to set them apart from the pack. A bold and confident introduction.

My Gold Mask - Battles

Chicago trio My Gold Mask have also been listening to a little new-wave and possibly some of the noisier shoegaze bands, as they make their own, modern sounding version of alternative pop music that's sharp, full-on and pretty relentless. However, they never lose sight of the tune amongst the barrage of sound that they send your way on 'Battles'.

Passenger Peru - Dirt Nap

It was just last week that we featured 'Heavy Drugs' by Brooklyn band Passenger Peru, and now here's another free track from their new, self-titled album which got its release this week. 'Dirt Nap' keeps things interesting and makes sure that these guys aren't just going down the regular indie route, as they make use of sounds and rhythms from further afield.

Hemmit - Everything Is Fine

Over on the other side of the US, powerpop duo Hemmit are unleashing their third album 'Antimatter'. They don't mess around on freebie 'Everything Is Fine', taking a punky, garage-rock sound and smashing through just under two-minutes of noisy guitar-pop that contains enough energy to power the recording studio of its own accord.

Long Distance Runners - Can't Breathe

'Can't Breathe' is a heartfelt tale of lost love from the debut album by Sweden's Long Distance Runners. 'We Will Never Know' was released at the end of last year, and the powerful and emotive indie of this free track shows a band with a grand vision and the ability to see it through. There's the potential here for these guys to become much bigger news.
