British singer James Blake also lent his voice to two stellar songs: ‘King’s Dead’ and ‘Bloody Waters’.
Meanwhile, Scottish rockers Franz Ferdinand made their comeback with ‘Always Ascending’. The inspiring album features singles ‘Lazy Boy’ and ‘Feel the Love Go’. Liverpool band The Wombats also returned with ‘Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life’. The indie rock record features sharp grooves on tracks like ‘Turn’ and ‘Lemon to a Knife Fight’.
London-based pop band Kero Kero Bonito dropped off their surprise ‘Totep’ EP. The tight four-track release is inspired by pop punk. Elsewhere, the Mercury Prize-nominated Field Music released the fiery album ‘Open Here’. Hookworms also surprised listeners with their psychedelic ‘Microshift’ album.
