With the transition into a new year comes the promise of brand new music. New albums to make the hair on the back of your neck stand on end, to energise your morning commute, new songs to sing in the shower, and upcoming gigs to impatiently count down on that kitten calendar your aunt Susan got you for Christmas.
Whilst I wouldn’t say 2018 was a terribly impressive year for the majority of overhyped albums, I must say that the previous slot of 365 days definitely redeemed itself through the means of singles.
Amidst these revelations of 2018, one stood out to me in particular. The unequivocally unique sounds of Calva Louise’s track ‘Outrageous’, show us a pure source of creativity and passion. From the moment I heard this power-punk grunge fusion, I was instantly hooked.
Not only are Calva Louise’s singles exceptional in their own right, but the band are set to be expanding their ever-growing song collection with the release of their debut album; Rhinoceros, which is set to come out on Friday the 1st of February.
Personally, I can’t wait to hear the entire album in full. These guys and gals are 100% ones that you need to keep your eye on throughout the coming year.
