Many complain about the fact that in the various alternative-rock music groups and blogs, all the same trivial songs are heard and even the latest songs come from artists who have been active for over 30 years. Bad lies in the last decade there have been no new names that have the displacement to leave in second place the already state names of the area. At some point it will definitely happen and this will be the new band that the whole music community will talk about. So let us not be disappointed because I think it is a matter of time. In this article, listening to the thirst for new names, we will introduce you to some fresh bands, many of which are just releasing their first recordings that deserve our attention.

MØAAs got their name from the MAO-A gene, also known as “The Warrior Gene”, for its association with increased aggression and persistence. Exploring the dark memories embedded in nostalgia, MØAA’s debut album “Euphoric Recall” draws listeners through an intensely dreamy atmosphere to reach the dark illuminated corners of the past. Jancy Rae traveled the world with the demos she recorded in Seattle in her luggage and stopped her trip to wet Venice where, in collaboration with Andrea Volpato, she completed the recordings at Fox Studio Venice.
Listen to the dreamy “X Marks” from the lp debut “Euphoric Recall” which will be released on April 2, 2021.

Will it be in the 20 best singles of 2021? For Bsideriff.com I can not imagine that it will not be in a high position. Melancholic female vocals and SLOWDIVE aesthetics in the surprise of 2021 so far. We are of course talking about the song Die Happily by FRITZ that is in the lp debut “Pastel” that was released on February 12 and I predict it will be in the best lp of 2021 as well. FRITZ is a young talented singer and songwriter from Newcastle, her real name is Tilly Murphy and I think she will be a big part of the alternative music community in 2021.

Joe Cardamone, former singer of the noise rock group The Icarus Line, has left after 17 years and while producing records for other artists, he secretly hit MPC during the night in his studio. Although these rhythms were made without a purpose other than personal creative expression, they possess a uniqueness and power. To date, the night’s rhythms have evolved into a powerful collection of over 40 recordings. This collection in combination with the quarantine launched the creativity of Joe Cardamone who composes, sings and directs the highly aesthetic, paranoid, expressionist aesthetic video clips that we suggest you watch on his youtube channel.


We close this mini tribute to fresh names and first releases of fresh artists with a band with a heavy name since it refers to perhaps the most important film of Wim Wenders, Wings of Desire and their debut EP ‘End Of An Age’, where the vido -clip of the lead track Chance Of A Lifetime made us feel special. Wings Of Desire is the duet of Chloe Little and James Taylor, formerly INHEAVEN.
