New Entry: SPINN Unveil New single "Home"

Liverpool indie pop/dream pop/jangle band SPINN have unveiled their summery new single "Home".

About the track, singer Jonathon Quinn explains: “This one’s probably our most shallow track. We went out to create a pop tune with not much meaning behind it, which is different to our other stuff, which usually has some kind of message or secret meaning. You could probably over analyse it if you really wanted to, and hail it as an homage to house party romances or a love letter. But, to be honest it’s just meant to be something that’s good for the ears.”

The song  will be released on 3rd March. Stream it below.

The end only asked for a speech, and the queen of the genre PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE (1956) By Ed Wood, came to mind. Later we decided that the video was also with fragments of this audiovisual jewel." The band explained.

North London indie pop/alt band Theme Park have announced the release of their sophomore album 'Is This How It Starts?'.

The follow-up to 2013's self-titled debut album will be out on May 5, and is the result of the band’s collaboration with their old friend Ben Garrett who, under the artist name Fryars, masterminded his own remarkable 2014 album ‘Power’ and has also collaborated with artists such as Lily Allen and Mika.

"Without getting too philosophical, you're always looking for stories and meanings in the blank space of life," says Miles Haughton. "Lots of the songs are about the start of relationships, the start of things, reading meaning into things, trying to find the stories."

The band are also streaming their new single "I'll Do Anything", which "is about feeling a connection with someone when they've got a boyfriend," says Miles. "It's nice to write a song from the point of view of a villain."

Pre-order the album here, check out thetracklist and listen to "I'll Do Anything" below.

New Entry: Ride Premiere New Single "Home Is A Feeling"

24 hours after you heard the first new material from Ride  in over twenty years, here's their hypnotic new song "Home Is A Feeling".

The song is taken from their forthcoming new album, due to be released Summer 2017 on Wichita Recordings. 

About the track, Mark Gardener says: "‘Home Is A Feeling’ to me is like a slow, wide-screen, sonically, layered, slowed motion warm wash. Like returning home as dawn rises totally exhausted and spangled after a long ..long ...big, great night out’"

Andy Bell says: “Out of all the new songs ‘Home Is A Feeling’ comes closest to the early Ride sound. We felt comfortable going vintage on this tune because the album we are making has a pretty broad sonic scope. It’s a short and sweet, melodic tune, with stacked harmonies, reverbed-out guitars, slowed down drums, and a huge distorted bass sound. Erol put his sage-scented electronic wizards hat on to sample up some of our harmonies and make them into a synthesiser preset, which we ended up using on this and some of the other tunes too. We wanted this song to sound jet lagged, so everything on it was recorded with varispeed, either faster or slower than real time. It’s like 1966 Beatles meets 1988 MBV… in other words, Ride.”

New Entry: Ride Return With "Charm Assault", Their First New Song in 20 Years

British shoegaze pioneers Ride have released their excellent new single "Charm Assault", their first new music in 20 years.

The song is taken from Ride's forthcoming album, produced by Erol Alkan and mixed by the band's longtime collaborator, Alan Moulder, and due to be released Summer 2017 on Wichita Recordings. 

UPDATE 27/02: "Charm Assault" is our new Single of the Week!

About the track, Andy Bell says: "Charm Assault is a pretty straightforward expression of frustration and disgust at the people who currently run our country. The tour in 2015 was a good way of reminding us what we were good at in the first place and Charm Assault feels like a natural continuation from our peak. When we started writing together again we tried to imagine we'd kept on making music all this time, and this was just the latest one."

The band's last full-length record was 'Tarantula', released back in March 1996. The band broke up later that year. After a brief reconciliation in 2001 for a live televised performance, Ride officially reunited in 2014.
