Music Monday: Maria Sanchez, Icarus, Fair Do’s, Blossoms, and Sticky Fingers

Budding LA soul artist Maria Sanchez (who also goes by the alias Groovy MS) has released a new track titled “Hey Love”- one of two new singles she will be releasing on My Grito Industries/Soul Tune Records. Both songs will appear on an upcoming 45” out later this Spring/Summer. “Hey Love” is the Side A.

Bristol-based duo Tom and Ian Griffiths, a.k.a Icarus, are back on Anjunadeep with the new single ‘Only’. The pair made their long-awaited return to the label last April with ‘Moment In Time’, a single that perfectly encapsulated their distinctive brand of emotive and melodic house. ‘Only’ sees Tom and Ian produce a wistful, piano-infused offering, with a two-step groove firmly rooted in UK dance music.

Fair Do’s are a powerhouse of technical melodic hardcore, who combine hardcore punk and metal in a way that few other bands dare. Fair Do’s spent their formative years hammering their distinctive fast-punk style home, however, they’ve also invested considerable time honing their metal chops, evident in their heavier rhythms, riffs, and plentiful beat-downs.

“Ribbon Around The Bomb” is the first single and title track from Blossoms‘ fourth studio album, Ribbon Around The Bomb which is set to be released April 29th. The song’s music video was directed by Edwin Burdis, Arctic Monkeys’ Creative Director, who worked on the band’s Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino and AM albums.

“Lekkerboy” is the fifth track to be released off of the upcoming album by Sticky Fingers and rings true to the band’s loved sound of effortless vocals, mellow melodies, and an overall laid-back atmosphere. Touching on addiction, it’s another personal look into the lives of five Aussie lads.
