[FRIDAY'S FINEST] Featuring Sarpa Salpa, Harry Strange, The Good Neighbors & The Sea Atlas

Friday's Finest is a weekly collaborative post between us at It's All Indie, Turtle Tempo, Nexus and Clunk. As each week we pick 4 tracks that we have been loving for the past 7 days with the post going up on one our respected blogs.

So let's kick things off

Fred from It's All Indie's pick: Sarpa Salpa - Smith

Sarpa Salpa have burst onto the scene in the past year with the band rising through the venues locally to them including one of the best new festivals around, Wilkestock. The new track has some frantic guitars, a chorus that you can easily sing at the top of your lungs and a dabble of light synths which wash over it. It's a great way to get into the band if you're completely new to them and following a non-stop year of writing and recording over 2018, the Northampton are looking to push on and gain more followers, more listeners and perform to new audiences. If they keep up making tracks like "Smith" then everyone is going to be in for a treat!

Dan from Turtle Tempo's pick: Harry Strange - Signs

Turtle Tempo -Independent Music Discovery

London/Bristol-based independent artist Harry Strange has just dropped his third release Signs, produced by Duncan Brookfield, we just cannot get enough of this truly spellbinding single, which is jam-packed with emotional, personal lyricism, exceptional vocals and is further evidence that the 21-year-old, who has clocked over half a million (and counting) Spotify streams on his debut single 'Back Around', is an incredibly bright spark to watch out for.

Michael from Nexus' pick: The Good Neighbors - Heat Of The Fire

The Good Neighbors are from Buffalo, NY and consist of three members, Connor Getz (Guitar/Vocals), David Delvalle (Bass guitar/Vocals) and Jacob Frasier (Drums). Their latest track is a huge achievement as the band moves away from their darker roots. Their riffs and melodies create an alluring atmosphere, with the best part being that 'Heat Of The Fire' is a youthful release. There is much passion behind the vocal delivery as this, coupled with the entirety of the track unapologetically plants itself into a space in your head that means you'll be humming the chorus for the foreseeable future... Sorry about that...

Kieran from Clunk's pick: The Sea Atlas - Goodbye

Clunk Magazine

Imagine opening your window and being greeted by the rough landscape of the Outer Hebrides. As you look up moody skies roll across and the ebb and flow of the unpredictable North Sea wash over jagged rocks. This is the home of artist The Sea Atlas, a singer songwriter whose dark melodic tracks, like his home, are nothing short of awe inspiring. His latest track 'Goodbye', which is taken from his forthcoming EP is a deep, dark and brooding number that sees his vocals take precedence over the subtle yet atmospheric guitar. It's easy to make links between The Sea Atlas and Ben Howard and there are definitely similarities but The Sea Atlas' music has a real sense of foreboding running through it.
