San Francisco/Brooklyn indie pop/dream pop/surf band No Vacation and Nashville folk-pop duo Okey Dokey have dropped the video for their collaborative track "Really Truly".

Kicking off with a quaint sluggishness, “Really Truly” seems to beckon the slow-paced moods of summer before slipping into an upbeat, disjointed phrase cloaked with the calls-and-responses of the groups’ respective singers.

"The constant polarity of driving guitars, sun-soaked synthesizers and laid-back beats set the undertone of a mind with conflicting sentiments over a broken relationship and foggy future," says guitarist Pallé Mazzulla on the single.

New Entry: Children Collide Unleash New Single "Aurora"

Melbourne post punk/krautrock/indie rock band Children Collide have unleashed their new single "Aurora".

The song is the first taste of the band's upcoming fourth studio album, set to arrive on early 2020 via Spinning Top Music.

Returning with a post-punk charge and the unmistakable trademarks of Children Collide, Aurora is a love letter to humanity’s grand illusions. “I kept listening back to the demo and remembering how much fun it was playing this kind of music,” says vocalist / guitarist Johnny Mackay of the track. 

“It was originally written for our third album Monument, so it’s felt like unfinished business ever since and a big part of the reason we made another album. In the end if felt like it was burning a hole in my hard drive, so we had to put it out.”

“I never really stopped writing music that felt like it belonged to Children Collide.  In 2014 Heath, Ryan and I jammed and did a couple of shows and remembered how much fun it was to play that stuff together. The idea of a fourth album was thrown around in those sessions, but we were all busy pursuing our own paths,” he adds.

New Entry: Pynch Premiere New Single "Disco Lights"

London-based lo-fi/indie foursome Pynch have premiered their new single “Disco Lights”.

The song will be out digitally on November 22 via Speedy Wunderground and on 7" single on 13 December, the B-side is a dub remix by Orla Carey. Grab it here.

Pynch originally started life as a set of demos written and recorded by vocalist/guitarist Spencer Enock in his parents Ramsgate basement taking inspiration from indie stalwarts like LCD Soundsystem, The War On Drugs, The Strokes and Beach Fossils to name a few.

Speedy label boss Dan Carey came across the band when they sent an email containing three demos over to Speedy HQ – the first of which was Disco Lights. ‘I try and listen to everything we get sent,’ says Carey, ‘which is hard because we get sent a Lot. This came through as I woke up early one morning in a hotel in Berlin where I’d been recording with an artist. Disco Lights stood out immediately – and seemed so different to anything we’d done before. I called Pierre (Hall, Speedy co-runner) saying we had to do it, and emailed the band straight away. I loved its pop sensibility – but the demo was really lo-fi. I kept imagining this bigger, more widescreen version of it. In my head I wanted it to be almost like Toy covering Everywhere by Fleetwood Mac.’

The resulting cut puts Carey’s vision into fruition. An immediate sun-drenched pop song with nods to Tame Impala and MGMT whilst maintaining that lo-fi Captured Tracks-esque feel, the production gets bigger and bigger as the track progresses culminating in dreamy synth layers being added and a killer solo to boot.

Of the recording process the band says - 'Hands down the best recording experience we've ever had. It was so much fun working with Dan. He was genuinely excited about the song and had so many creative ideas on how to bring it to life. Everything took shape really quickly and we were blown away by how everything was sounding.'

It’s got amazing nature, and there’s an inescapable spiritual vibe to the place. But it’s held with this tension between real estate money and nature now constantly being logged and developed. It’s a process that’s been happening for maybe 150 years—you’re watching this beautiful place just kind of melt.”.

M!R!M Announces New LP 'The Visionary', Shares "Survive"

London-based coldwave/darkwave/post punk project M!R!M (aka Jack Milwaukee) has announced the released of his third full-length album ‘The Visionary’.

The 11 track record will be out on January 31 on Avant! Records, and features the brand new single "Survive". Buy your copy here.

The Visionary is a collection of songs pieced together in a meaningful and harmonious way where the storytelling is very vivid and fundamental. Trapped between hope and melancholy each track evolves smoothly into another one until it gets to a mystical end, a point of no return. From syncopated punchy bass lines drove by solid drum beats to elegant violin quartets accompanied by almost religious choirs, The Visionary is an engaging work that doesn’t remain only inside the robes of shimmering synth-pop tunes but also explores more intimate and private territories as an ode to the most deep feelings.

Pulling from the ‘pop' approach of mid 80's synth-pop pioneers like New Order, The Wake, Tears for Fears to most iconic figures of the Italian 80’s era, M!R!M dialed in on a clear understanding of its own specific sound, which has since evolved.

The Visionary is the ultimate unified vision of M!R!M’s work, it’s the sweetest transition of the most nostalgic daydream.

Milwaukee says about the album: “The record comes out of experiencing a lot of emotional turmoil caused by the loss of my best friend at the end of 2017 and wanting to create something that could pay tribute to her and to our friendship. The Visionary is the manifesto of those who decided to be not afraid of being different despite people’s judgment because being yourself always and in any case is the most important thing.” 

Check out the album's tracklist and watch the video for "Survive" below.

The Visionary Tracklist:
01. Survive
02. Another Life Another Time (feat. Kat Day)
03. Superstitions
04. Crystal Cave
05. Adolescent
07. Crucifix And Roses
08. Not The People
09. Testament
10. The Mercury Girl
11. The Visionary

'Amidst the clutter and the mess' is basically how all of 2017 felt for me, it was a pretty turbulent year. After I wrote this song, it really shaped how I wanted the rest of the album to sound. It was sort of a benchmark for the feeling and mood, a starting point, so it felt right to name the album after it. "
