British indie rock/pop band Life have released the video for their latest single "Moral Fibre".
The song, produced by Luke Smith (Foals), is part of our current playlist and came out last month, and is the first taste from the band's forthcoming, currently untitled sophomore album (TBA).Grab it here.
Speaking of the track, frontman Mez Green says: “Moral Fibre is a stinging and frenzied shut up and step aside. A tongue in cheek reflection on the music industry, that beige scene, those that pimp poverty from Mummy’s detached house, those that trade in fair-trade cocaine and those that preach behind their keyboard. I’m taking the piss, but I’m deadly serious!”
The video was directed by Anna Bean and Josh Moore. Watch below.
Cardiff indie rock/psych three-piece Red Telephone have aired their new single "I'm Always Thinking About You".
The song "captures the disorientation of a new infatuation and delves into the mental anguish and uncertainty that accompanies it, and brings together the immediacy of classic song-writing with weaving, angular guitars and instantly memorable rhythmic hooks.
Japanese indie pop/shoegaze band Taffy have announced the release of their new album titled "Deep Dark Creep Love".
The band's fifth LP and follow up to 2017's Nyctophilia, will be out on July 5th through Club AC30, according to the press, encapsulates the bands infectious, melodic take on the noise-pop genre, with a greater emphasis on big choruses and backing vocals than their previous work. The material has honed in on that classic Taffy contrast which is musically light but delves into dark places vocally. In tone it feels softer, but effortlessly dips into tracks such as ‘The Bates’, based on Psycho’s infamous lead and his sinister relationship with his mother.
With sensibilities reminiscent of Elastica and The Stone Roses, Taffy have always been inspired by the works of British artists and shown that appreciation by covering them, and on ‘Deep Dark Creep Love’ they decided to continue that tradition by playing homage to one of their favourites; ‘Never Let Me Down’ by David Bowie.
The band have also shared their new single "She & She", which according to lead singer Iris " is a song about being loved very much but you know somewhere in your heart that it could fall apart easily. When you’re good at being loved, whether intentionally or unintentionally, you also know there comes a time that it falls apart. When you stop being the person they imagine you are.”
Toronto based art-dance sibling trio Doomsquad have released their new single "Let It Go".

From the band: “The song is kind of an inner debate between two opposing voices of a conflicted self-conscience over how to cope through these chaotic times. One side balances a process of disengagement, of “letting go” of anger, resentment and fear by detaching oneself from the news cycle, and social media and journeying towards inner peace in a more spiritual way. The other side argues for staying socially and political engaged, staying tuned in and turned on and leaning into the fiery activist energy and fighting this noble fight. Can both sides co-exist? Can you find a balance? Whats healthier? Whats fair?.”
