Every Friday, I pick out four new music picks from the best of the music blogs as part of my Day & Night digital section. Follow Day & Night on Twitter or Facebook. The magazine is out today in print with every copy of the Irish Independent so pick it up to see my full section as well as the rest of the mag. My picks for the this week are…
Florida’s Blonds (not to be confused with the NY electronic duo Blondes) channel the bruised emotion of Nancy Sinatra on the melodramatic ’50s-referencing single Run from their album The Bad Ones, coming in August.
