The best music on the web this week…

Arctic Monkeys – Brick By Brick

Sheffield’s finest are back with a retro-sounding new song, vocals by drummer Matt Helder and a Josh Homme-esque guitar solo. The song is taken from their forthcoming album due in the summer.

Icona Pop

Uber-catchy electronic pop from the Swedish duo who release their brilliant debut single Manners through Neon Gold (who first brought Passion Pit and Marina & The Diamonds to our attention amongst others).
Listen at Neon Gold

Kimbra – Settle Down

Rich and imaginative vocal pop from a Melbourne-based Kiwi called Kimbra Johnson (pictured). It’s a little bit jazzy and totally magnetic. Check out the music video too for some more awesomeness.

Foster The People

Welcome to your new Summer jam. It’s called Pumped Up Kicks and it’s a funky whistle-infused ray of pop light from a band based in Los Angeles. Make it happen.
