In Case You Missed It: Week of August 4

Online releases from Alvvays, Vance Joy, Hey Rosetta!, Arkells, Jake Bugg, Zeus

This week we got brand new music from Canadian bands Arkells, Zeus and Hey Rosetta! Plus a new tune from Vance Joy and a summery new video from Alvvays. Hear Jake Bugg do an impressive cover of Imagine Dragons, and check out Lucius’ Collective Arts Black Box Session.

Here’s the best online releases of the week. Enjoy and don’t forget to share with your friends.

Alvvays released a nautical and romantic video for their hit track “Archie Marry Me” off their newly released self-titled LP.

Straight from Australia, Vance Joy released a fun new song called “First Time”. The track comes off his upcoming album Dream Your Life Away due out on September 5.

We crammed the lovely ladies and gent of Lucius into our Collective Arts Black Box. Watch as they perform a beautiful acoustic version of “Go Home”, and listen to the story of how they met.

After premiering new material at recent live shows, Hey Rosetta! announced their new album Second Light will be released on October 21st. With the announcement came an album teaser and full track “Kintsukuroi”

Alt-J‘s catchy summer anthem “Left Hand Free” got some visuals. All about water rafting and having a good ol’ summer time.

Hamilton boys Arkells dropped their new album this week, and with it came a new single called “Leather Jacket”. It’s a tune about being cold and calling from a payphone, and it’s worth a listen.

Jake Bugg covered Imagine Dragon’s track “Radioactive”. It’s a smooth and slower version of the track, it’s almost completely unrecognizable.

Zeus fans will be happy to hear that they’ve released another new song off their upcoming album Classic Zeus out on September 2. The track is called “Straight Through The Light”.
