After checking out their debut EP Rosso, Sea Bed have become one of After Nyne’s favorites. Fundamentally electronic, but with a hint of indie, the pair have been getting comparisons to the likes of The XX and Years & Years. They’re definitely worth checking out. Here’s their fresh track Dark Embrace, which premiered at the Ministry of Sound last week.

Los Angeles rock-pop quartet Northern American are about to release their debut album, Modern Phenomena, which will arrive May 18 on Heist Or Hit Records. With Modern Phenomena, Northern American have found an organic, shimmering sound. Their debut single, Wander, garnered airplay on BBC6 Music and Amazing Radio, and led CLASH magazine to call the band, “California hit-makers in waiting. Sun kissed songcraft designed to soundtrack a late night drive down the Sunset Strip.”

Our pick is Modern Phenomena’s title track. It’s something a little special.

Millions is an indie pop foursome hailing from Brisbane Australia who are set to drop in to the UK this Spring with their debut, self titled EP, Millions. The members are Dominic Haddad (lead vocals),Campbell Smith (bass) and brothers Ted and Louis Tillbrook (Guitar and Drums), the sons of Glenn Tilbrook, a founding member of 1980’s Squeeze.

Lead track ‘Nineteen’ is a stomping indie pop shuffle that was instantly added to high rotation on Australian national radio broadcaster Triple J, and was awarded Channel V’s Ripe Clip Of The Week.

Next is Swedish pop beauty Ninsun Poli, who’s releasing her single ‘Great Leap Forward’ on the 20th April. At the Great Escape last year she caused a storm, being likened to Chvrches, Tove Lo, Lykke Li and Beth Ditto. Below is a link to the music/video.

Finally, here’s Bad News by The Frankyls – a thunderous piece of sabbathesque Rock’n’Roll. The Franklys are a four piece force of nature – an all girl rock ‘n’ roll band hailing from Sweden, the UK and the US. Following on from the brilliant ‘Puppet’ earlier in the year, this new track sees the girls developing a recognised ‘sound’.

The Franklys officially release Bad News, on April 27th but here’s a sneak peak:
