Watch: Sam Fender Unveils Music Video For "Play God"

Newcastle indie rock musician Sam Fender has unveiled the video for "Play God".

The song came out independently in 2017 and has now been re-release trough his new US label home, Interscope. Get your copy here.

“Play God is set in an alternate dystopian reality that shares similarities with our own world,” explained Fender. I wrote it a couple of years ago where there were a lot of big changes happening in both the UK and the States, I had just entered my twenties, I was anxious about the future of the world and its leaders, and it didn’t help that I’d just read George Orwell’s 1984 at the time. As you can imagine, I was pretty paranoid!”

The video was directed directed by Vincent Haycock. Check out below.

New Entry: Blaenavon Share New Single "Catatonic Skinbag"

Hampshire, UK indie rock band Blaenavon have shared their new single "Catatonic Skinbag".

Speaking about the track, vocalist and guitarist Ben Gregory details, “The song is about isolation. Cutting oneself off from the world to engage in fruitless sensual pleasures and pretending everything is ok. Watching fucking Netflix and drinking a bottle of wine when you should probably instead be in therapy. But there's a way out. Art, friendship, love. You don’t have to be a catatonic skinbag. Lol.”

It features on the band’s forthcoming album ‘Everything That Makes You Happy’. Get it here and watch a lyric video below.

New Entry: Fehm Reveal New Single "Blue Hour (Nothing Lasts Forever)"

Leeds post punk band Fehm have revealed their  brand new single "Blue Hour (Nothing Lasts Forever)".

The song is taken from forthcoming debut album, due for release this year, which was recorded in July/August 2018 with Matt Peel at The Nave, and sees the band fully embracing their ever-expanding sound and venturing further into the darker sonic depths that their last releases hinted at. Whilst layers of synths, guitar melodies and driving bass lines wind and fall underneath Paul’s stark and melodic vocals.

The blue hour is the transitional period between day and night, or light and dark if you will. This represents the overall metaphor within the song. The song is about someone being split in half, just like the blue hour, eventually falling deeper into darkness. Nothing lasts forever.

 Take a listen below.

The 10-track record will be out 31st May via Heavenly Recordings, was overseen by Dave McCracken at Big Jelly Studios in Margate and was mixed by Dillip Harris in a shipping container on the banks of the Thames in East London.

Foals Detail New LP 'Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost', Air "Exits" New Video

Oxford UK indie rockers Foals have confirmed announced full details of their new studio album 'Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost'.

The follow-up to 2015's What Went Down, will be released in two instalments: Part 1 will be out on 8 March via Transgressive/Warner Bros. Records, and Part 2 will arrive this fall.

About the record, the band posted: “We couldn’t be more excited for you to hear all the work we’ve poured ourselves into over the past 18 months. The albums which will be coming out are two halves of the same locket. They can be listened to and appreciated individually, but fundamentally, they are companion pieces.

“Musically, we pushed ourselves to the furthest limit. Lyrically, the songs resonate with what’s going on in the world at the moment. These songs are white flags, or mirrors, or attempts to work through the confusing times we live in… each in a different way.

Speaking about ‘Exits’, Foals frontman Yannis Philippakis said, “There’s a definite idea about the world being no longer habitable in the way that it was. A kind of perilousness lack of predictability and a feeling of being overwhelmed by the magnitudes of the problems we face. What’s the response? And what’s the purpose of any response that one individual can have?”

The band have also aired an Albert Moya-directed video for their new single "Exits", starring Christa Théret (Renoir) and Isaac Hempstead Wright (“Game of Thrones”)

Pre-order the album here, check out the tracklist and the video for "Exits" below.

07. Cafe D'Athens
08. Surf Pt.1
09. Sunday
10. I'm Done With The World (& It’s Done With Me)
