Singles Only July Round Up #1

Ryan Fischer – About The Future

Release Date: 18th June 2021

Genre: Rock

If you’re hankering for the days of rock gone by, when it felt like things like going to the shop was less of an ordeal, Ryan Fischer is probably what you’re missing.

A toe-tapping throwback rock track that draws influence from so many bands over the past seven decades.


Contour – Sweet Comfortable Nothings

Release Date: 18th June 2021

Genre: Alt-Rock

Up next are Canadian alt-rock outfit Contour and their latest track ‘Sweet Comfortable Nothings’, a four-minute long tribute to giving up those little distractions that stunt your potential. Something we could all do with doing after so long being trapped.

Quiet verses contrast the more desperate chouses, creating a beautifully raw track recorded in such a way that holds so much authenticity within it.


I Feel Fine – Selfsame

Release Date: 29th June 2021

Genre: Alt-Rock

Venn Records is building a portfolio of bands that are absolutely smashing it and I Feel Fine are a fine example of this. ‘Selfsame’ is the lead single from the band’s upcoming album, due to release on the 10th of September.

An emotional and self-reflecting track, ‘Selfsame’ is vocalist and writer Nathan Tomkins’ self-proclaimed “watershed moment”, identifying personal flaws. This is reflected in the same way that listening to bands like Touché Amoré drags you into the narrative.


Cotter – Keep Driving

Release Date: 2nd July 2021

Genre: Pop-Punk

Stepping more into the catchy side of the rock scene now we have Ohio pop-rockers, Cotter, with their brand of ‘honest’ music that follows the theme of this round-up by being a lyrically reflective track.

With members of Starset and Beartooth lending their experience, the track from Cotter’s debut EP has the feel of an established band that have an exciting career ahead of themselves.


Prescription Happiness – Spray & Pay

Release Date: 18th June 2021

Genre: Metalcore

Despite the theme of this round up being primarily about reflection, sometimes you just need one emotion: anger. London based metallers Prescription Happiness have put together ‘Spray & Pay’ during lockdown and it is oozing that most red of emotions.

From the intro you may be lulled into that false sense of security that you’re getting something slightly melodic, that feeling is battered away quickly as the angst and frustration of lockdowns is released in bursts.
