British indie rockers The Magic Gang released their self-titled debut album last year via Warner Music UK and got some great praise overseas but the album sadly seemed to go rather underlooked here stateside.

By Will Oliver, September 16th 2019 Indie Listen Stream

South Of France, the Denver-based indie pop outfit led by Jeff Cormack, will release their sophomore album Remember That Cool Thing We Did sometime in early 2020.

They’ve given us a preview of the album with their infectious lead single “Comme Ça,” a track that hones in the world of indie rock circa early 2000s with a simple but effective pop-rock approach that feels like a happy blend of acts like Phantom Planet, MGMT, Empire Of The Sun and Phoenix. It’s clear that they know their way around a good pop hook and don’t waste a single second of “Comme Ça’s” breezy runtime.

Enjoy a listen of “Comme Ça” below and look out for it’s inclusion on the Season 6 Premiere of Netflix’s BoJack Horseman.

Stray Fossa are preparing for the release of their new EP Laridae later this month, of which we’ve already heard three great singles ahead of its release.

The band have returned with one of the best of the batch yet, with the wide-eyed dreamy offering “Always Over,” a track that offers some of that dreamy rock that they seem to execute with ease, but around the halfway mark shift gears into something more of a jangly post-punk sound that works with the upmost confidence.

Find the track streaming below and the entire EP available to preorder right now from their Bandcamp page.
