10 Of The Best Tracks We Heard This Week (Week ending May 10th)

As we always do on the weekend, we have a look back at TEN of  the finest tracks we've heard over the past week. Weather it's covers, originals, live versions or remixes.

Arctic Monkeys - Feels Like We Only Go Backwards

Alex Turner took to Australia's airwaves and performed a cover of Tame Impala's "Feels Like We Only Go Backwards" for Triple J's 'Like a version' segment. You can listen to a snippet of an interview and the full song below.

The Away Days - Your Colour

The Istanbul based band have unveiled a brand new track, and just in time for summer too! The track has some lovely light guitar tones that instantly remind us of Foals' second album and warming vocals. The track has it all! ''Your Colour'' will be available digitally from 9th June by Partapart Records.

The Kooks - Bad Habit

The Kooks unveiled a new track that's set to feature on their new album - "Listens" - earlier last week.  "Bad Habit" isn't a Foals cover, so sorry for that one. But it's certainly the best off of their new LP.

Wild Cub - The Mother We Share

Wild Cub - made famous by their "Thunder Clatter" anthem - have covered CHVRCHES' "The Mother We Share", it was released to celebrate Mothers day in America, and you can also grab it as a free download too.

Hawklion - Africa

Hawklion may sound like a mythical creature to some, but to others they're an Indie band from Dublin. One of the finest un-signed bands Ireland has to offer, well for now anyway! After hearing this epic anthem I can see them going further, so pick up a free download of "Africa" now!

MNRS - Costs

MNRS is Berlin/London based Ben Mercer, and he has currently been touring around mainland Europe. The track was produced by by a member of I Heart Sharks as well, so you know this track has got electronics all over it!

Racing Glaciers - First Light

The Macclesfield post-rock outfit has also been confirmed for Radio 1's One Big Weekend where they'll be playing the new EP in full. We're really loving their latest track, and you can listen to it below, with a 'EP Teaser' below that too. Get ready to hear more about them in the coming months!

Jack Burrell - Flowers In Your Hair

We've seen Jack perform live a couple of times and we know that he has a soulful voice, so when he recorded and posted a cover of The Lumineers' "Flowers In Your Hair" we just fell in love with it! It's also a free download, so check it out and fall in love with this sweet voice!

Bear Hands - Peacekeeper (We The Wild Remix)

Bear Hands are releasing their new single "Peacekeeper" shortly and the duo over at We The Wild have re-worked the track into a electronic fest! Certainly one of the best remixes we've heard this year!

Thief - Cry Me A River

This is a previous 'Daily Download' and on the 6th we posted it! Thief has stripped back the verse to a simple bass line and hand clap, leaving room for his vocals to float effortlessly above, before leading into the brass fuelled, punchy chorus.
