The moment I heard Glory Me, I fell hard for FRANKIIE, an all female four piece from Vancouver, Canada. The song kicks off with a smoky curling step that reminded me of Feist before it opens up into a rambunctiously chugging dream rock escapade. Glory Me comes off the band’s debut full length arriving later this year. The indie outfit released an EP and toured a bit in 2015 before focusing on their own individual projects, but it didn’t take too long before their members reconvened with renewed excitement. FRANKIIE’s full length will move away from their earlier folk tendencies and into a more experimental alt-rock vibe, as heard on sultry simmering, noire burning Glory Me, which contemplates life and death, like many of the other tracks on that forthcoming album. Watch the music video for Glory Me below. Glory Me can also be streamed via alternate platforms, here.

Long time IHM fans might recall a band named Black Gold Buffalo whom we posted about many years ago. The London based band, lead by smoky voiced chanteuse Keziah Stilwell, has been quiet on the music front for a very long time, but we’re happy to report that they’re back with a sensational new song named Pearls Deep. It’s a smoldering affair as Black Gold Buffalo drenches us with post-punky, inky noire art rock on their new song, whose slow burn ferocity recalls bands like Pumarosa and Savages, with some of the feisty guitar prickles of Foals. All hail the return of this charismatic four piece as they immediately drum up a whole lot of buzz with a song as magnetic and spectacular as Pearls Deep. You can snag the song from iTunes, here. Let’s hope this is the beginning of a new string of releases from Black Gold Buffalo.
