Dots Recommends: Terrorista, Lauren Strange and Big Lonely

You know those days when you feel like you’ve got excess energy to burn, but you also cannot be bothered to get out of bed? Be honest – we all have them. On days like that, I like to listen to loud, full of attitude, music to get me the hell out of bed and ready to do something to talk about.

Today was one of those days, so I scoured my emails and found three bands that have kindly sent music to me who absolutely nailed it on the energetic front. I thought I’d share them with you.

First up, here’s a two piece band who hail from Toronto, Canada called Terrorista. They’ve only got four songs up on Soundcloud and Bandcamp so far, but damn they are good, and in my humble opinion their natural yet quirky take on the post-punk style bodes well for the future. The music is fast, genuine and downright awesome to listen to. I love ‘em!

Next, I’d like to introduce you to another Canadian band, Big Lonely. Their EP, “Close Your Eyes, Keep Talking”, is available to listen to right now on Soundcloud. Rousing tunes, eloquent vocals and rhythmic guitar sounds, this is a band who are seemingly using a tried and tested formula. However, they’re putting their own stamp on it with some injections of character and humour – I like that a lot, and I really enjoy listening to music with personality! More, please!

Lastly today, this gorgeous lady (yes, she is a stunner) is called Lauren Strange. With a mix of grungy style guitars, a soulful yet sweet voice, catchy hooks that would get any crowd singing along, interspersed with some ethereal and countryish moments which shouldn’t work but do, this girl has a bright future ahead of her, I think. Maybe it’s that Nashville magic! Go and listen for yourselves!
