Watch: Geotic Premieres Music Video For New Single "Gondolier"

Los Angeles electronic/ambient artist Geotic (aka Baths' Will Wiesenfeld side-project) has premiered the video for his catchy new single "Gondolier".

The song is taken from the upcoming album 'Traversa', out October 19. Pre-order your copy here.

"Gondolier" explores the concept of misunderstandings within a relationship, that can lead to jarring ends. As with the remainder of the album, Wiesenfeld is singing on "Gondolier" about the relationship of travel and adventure as something occasionally isolating, while maintaining a sense of exploration within those feelings of loneliness. Sonically, it boasts a simple, repetitive melody to nautically themed lyrics referencing boats, docks, and lighttowers, like what happens when ships pass in the night with no awareness of each other. Those lyrics build tension with each new verse: "I caught you where the boats get tied/ Off to live a different live/ I knew, I felt myself get angry," Wiesenfeld sings, accusatory and betrayed in one verse, before growing sadder and more internal in the next: "I caught you where the boats sail off/ Like you tied me to the dock/ I fold, I felt the world desert me."

The video was directed by Will Wiesenfeld, Mario Luna and Shannon Pollak.. Watch it below.


New Entry: Perfect Body Drop New Single "Fields"

Cardiff noise pop/psych band Perfect Body have dropped their new single "Fields".

Perfect Body formed in early 2017, inspired by the sonic experimentation of bands like My Bloody Valentine, Stereolab, and The Brian Jonestown Massacre. Their sound is characterized by it’s noisy, psychedelic guitar playing; icy, ethereal synthesizers; and a muscular, yet dynamic rhythm section. Perfect Body is a wall of noise, hazing over and obscuring what is, at it’s core, pop-oriented songwriting.

It is taken from their upcoming split EP with Zac White, out on November 23 via Bubblewrap Collective (digitally on October 12). Stream it below.

New Entry: Oh800 Share New Single "Melanin"

London indie rock/pop/funk band Oh800 have shared their new single "Melanin".

The song is taken from their upcoming debut album 'Character Building', set to arrive in October 12th. We have previously heard the record's first single "I Want You Around".

Speaking about it, band member Eoin Rooney said: "We had the music for this song kicking around for quite a while, but the lyrics came after a young black kid was killed by a police officer in our area of London. The officer thought he swallowed a suspicious package and chased him down. You know the rest… Meanwhile on the same streets, middle class white people walk around every weekend with suspicious packages in their pockets, suspicion free. That pisses me off. So I wrote a song about it."
