Letters to Fiesta and Kissing Cousins this week's new discoveries

Letters To Fiesta - Drag The Fire

This Manchester band write fresh, catchy, uplifting pop tunes with layered lo-fi vocals, synthesisers a-plenty and some serious hooks... Anna Louise Etherington is who you hear on lead vocals and she pounds away at the synths too.


Kissing Cousins - Unfortunate End

From the cold, mean streets of Manchester to the hot, humid and definitely meaner streets of LA - Kissing Cousins are from Silver Lake and led by songwriter Heather Bray Heywood... she pumps out stark, dark rock tunes with an autoharp put through a delay pedal making most of the noise. Nice.

Unfortunate End the EP is out now on Velvet Blue Music.
