Brisbane indie pop/rock band The Jungle Giants have revealed their brand new single "Every Kind Of Way"
The song is the first taste from the band's forthcoming sophomore album, and the follow up to 2013's ‘Learn To Exist’, which is due for release early August 2015.
About the track, the band said: "‘Every Kind Of Way’ shows a band that is completely confident in its sound. This time around we’re much more comfortable with recording and went in thinking we’d just try everything we wanted to try. It was a little chaotic and messy, but we felt like we could do whatever we wanted and no one could tell us otherwise."
Recorded in a makeshift studio inside an old Queenslander in rural South East Queensland, The Jungle Giants have worked with producer Magoo once again.
"Every Kind Of Way" will be out on 10 April through Amplifire Music, and is available for pre-order and stream here.
Sheffield based musician JJD aka Soft Riot has aired his latest single "You Never Know What Might Come Next".
The song is the title track from his new album 'You Never Know What Might Come Next' out now on limited CD version via the French label Exhibition Records. The official LP/Digital version of the album will be released in early June. Get it here.
White Shadows, the new project from Craig Nicholls of The Vines & Nick Littlemore of Empire of the Sun & Pnau, have shared the video for their current single "Give Up Give Out Give In".
The song is part of our current playlist and is the first single from the forthcoming record 'Secret of Life', which will be out on April 14 through Wicked Nature Music. Pre-order it here.
It was co-produced by Littlemore and his younger brother Sam, who is associated with Australian bands including Peking Duk and Parachute Youth. 'Give Up Give Out Give In' was originally recorded by The Vines as a B-side to the 2006 single, 'Don't Listen To The Radio'.
The clip was directed by Melvin J. Montalban & Dylan Duclos. Watch it below.
Brighton post-punk duo Prinzhorn Dance School (aka Tobin Prinz and Suzi Horn) have shared their new single "Reign".
The song is taken from their upcoming third full-length album 'Home Economics', which will be out on June 9 via DFA Records. Pre-order the album here.
In an interview, speaking about the new album, Prinz said: "There has been an evolution, definitely. Adding colour to the monochrome. Adding emotion to the observation. It’s not a conscious development. We just record the things we feel."
The 12-track album has been produced by John Congleton at London’s RAK Studios, and was recorded during an intense 15-day period in late 2014. "We approached it the way bands do with their first record,” says Alex Kapranos. “We had the songs first, rehearsed them and then recorded it all together, in a room. So no hanging around or fannying about."
Very much a ‘new’ project, FFS doesn't truly sound like either band, but a striking and fascinating mutation. “The real motivation was to make something new, not ‘Franz featuring Russell Mael’, or ‘Sparks with Franz Ferdinand backing them," he adds.
The lead track "Piss Off" is the first song they wrote for the album, it is out now, and is very Sparks but also very FF. Pre-order the album here.
