New Entry: Lorelei Release Debut Single "I Am A Road"

Australian dream pop duo Lorelei  (aka Claudia Schmidt and Arlen McCarthy) have released their lovely debut single "I Am A Road".

Coming from two distinct worlds, the duo met by chance at a house party. Influenced by bands like Cocteau Twins, My Bloody Valentine, and Blondie, Lorelei exists somewhere in the middle, a swirling current of dark dream-pop.

The song is out now. Stream it below.

Friendly Fires Announce New LP 'Inflorescent', Stream "Silhouettes"

British indie rock/pop/dance band Friendly Fires have announced the release of their their long-awaited third studio album 'Inflorescent'.

The 11-track album includes their previously shared tracks "Love Like Waves", "Heaven Let Me In", also their brand new single "Silhouettes", it will be out on on August 16 Via Polydor. Pre-order your copy here.

Arriving eight years after their last album, Inflorescent is the sound of a band rejuvenated and reborn. The hiatus had left some to question whether we'd ever see another full length Friendly Fires record but once the three band members - Ed Macfarlane, Edd Gibson and Jack Savidge, friends since the age of eleven - reconvened in Macfarlane's parents' St Albans garage (the scene of much of their early recorded output) at the tail end of 2017, things were never really in doubt. Arriving with just three scrawled words ("Love. Like. Waves") as a starting point, they soon emerged with a finished song as fresh and vital as anything they'd done before.

Alongside producers / co-producers Mark Ralph, James Ford and Disclosure, Friendly Fires have spent the last eighteen months making a record in a variety of London studios that stands tall among their previous albums; the Brit Awards and Mercury Prize-nominated Friendly Fires and its acclaimed follow up, Pala. In fact, it may well go down as their best yet. If their previous records summoned a feeling of yearning and hazy escapism, Inflorescent is much more direct, in part inspired – lyrically at least – by reconnecting with the hardcore records they’d bonded over as teenagers. Equally informed by experiencing the here and now, by hanging out and dancing in clubs together as a trio again, it’s a record very much about living in the present; about not being afraid, seizing the moment, casting aside doubts and pursuing the things you love.

Check out the album's tracklist and listen to "Silhouettes", below.
