    Hockeysmith - "But Blood"

    Hockeysmith, the sisterly duo of Georgie and Annie from the UK, seemed to have something really special when they released their debut track "Let's Bang" (probably the least aggressive song to ever be called "Lets Bang") in July 2013. They were quiet for quite a while, dropping the solid "Meanwhile" but not reaching the same glorious highs as on their debut track. The wait is now over, and "But Blood" shows the benefits of not rushing out more songs quickly to capitalize on that fleeting blog buzz, but instead biding your time and cooking up something really excellent.

    With a beautiful video from The xx album art and video creator Davy Evans, and layers of distorted guitar swirling around soaring vocals, you should be excited for the duo's debut EP, coming soon.—Constant Gardner
