New Entry: Juliper Sky Premiere New Single "Into the Outer Light"

Manchester dream pop/psych/indie five-piece Juliper Sky have premiered their new single "Into the Outer Light".

The song is taken from their forthcoming EP 'Modern Fantasy', due in 2021. 

Sonically ‘Into the Outer Light’ continues to build upon much of the Shoegaze sounds encapsulated in the bands earlier releases. Made up of lush reverbs, pounding drums and soaring vocal hooks.

Jamie Lambert (Vocalist, Guitar) commented on how “lyrically ‘Into the Outer Light’ explores the feelings and emotions of starting a new journey. When you have got to a point in your life which seems directionless and without purpose, but through an event or encounter those feelings suddenly change and a new cycle begins. The song has been in the making for a while but the lyrics gained a new meaning in light of the current world around us. I’m sure a lot of people, ourselves included, have used the past few months to reflect and question our current directions in life”.  

Liam Grindell (Guitar, Synth) commented “We wanted to write a body of music that is in essence, going from point A to point B. ‘Into the Outer Light’ is the first single release which forms part of a bigger picture aiming towards 2021's EP release. The track itself is the start of a journey and we wanted the music to reflect this, aiming to create an energetic feeling of excitement, and pace”.

Watch: Flying Moon In Space Air New Single/Video "The Observer"

Leipzig krautrock/psych seven-piece Flying Moon In Space have aired the video for their new single "The Observer".

The song is taken from their forthcoming self-titled debut album "a shape-shifting blend of driving Krautrock aesthetics, vivid psychedelic pop and techno-indebted sounds", due for release December 4th through Fuzz Club. Pre-order your copy here.

‘The Observer’ is described by the band as an anthem for the “post-industrial burnouts” of the world. Delivered in the form of reverb-heavy, Krautrock-infused psych-pop, it’s a breezy and exuberant call to break from the humdrum drudgery that modern life entails. They say of the track: “All work and no play is a recipe for disaster. We grow old eight hours a day at a desk and then death comes with a bitter kiss. If you’re lucky enough not to lose your inner kid, all you really wanna do is play now. Before the final act, when all is said and done, time will tell that fun has no age.”

New Entry: The Vacant Lots Reveal "Departure (Robert Levon Been Remix)"

NYC  electro post-punk duo The Vacant Lots (aka Jared Artaud and Brian MacFadyen) have revealed their new remixed song "Departure", produced by Black Rebel Motorcycle Club's Robert Levon Been.

A long-standing crowd-favourite, the track is now set for release for the very first time and is bolstered by the remixing duties of the BRMC guitarist and vocalist, whom The Vacant Lots became close friends with after both bands toured together on several occasions. Blending proto-punk and psych as effortlessly as you’d expect from a Vacant Lots release, the ‘Departure’ remix – due for release October 16th on Fuzz Club – sees throbbing 'Nightclubbing'-esque electronics interlaced with distorted, hard-hitting guitars and vocals that are just as snarling as they are detached.

First conceived when The Vacant Lots were writing their 2014 ‘Departure’ LP but left unreleased and having now evolved over the years since, the song became a staple of the band’s visceral live performances and is now set for a long-overdue vinyl release in the form of a 7” with an etched B-side that’s limited to 500 copies. 

Talking about the ‘Departure’ remix – mastered by Maurizio Baggio (Boy Harsher, The Soft Moon, Merchandise) and housed in stark, minimalistic artwork by longtime visual collaborator Ivan Liechti – The Vacant Lots’ Jared Artaud, says: “In order to translate our recorded songs into our live set we continually have to reinterpret our music and transform them, since there are only two of us. However, with this remix, Robert has done the reverse and brought the live spirit of this song back into the recorded one. It's something only he can do. He added some sounds that truly make it more dynamic and powerful. It's an honor to collaborate with someone from one of my favorite bands of all time.”

Speaking about it, the band said: "This track is about the energy of music and the feeling of community that it nurtures. Like many people, we miss the cathartic power that music can bring to a crowd. We miss you, hell we even miss each other! Can't wait to dance with you in brighter times."

Watch: Cut Off Your Hands Premiere New Single/Video "Live For Each Other"

Auckland alt-pop/nu wave band Cut Off Your Hands have premiered the video for their new single "Live For Each Other".

The song is taken from their third and final album 'HLLH', out tomorrow (October 16). Get it here.

Speaking about it, frontman Nick Johnston says: ‘Live For Each Other’ It is about self-consciousness within relationships and avoiding the temptation to put a magnifying glass on those I love.”

“The structure was built originally around a sample of ‘Slippery People’ by Talking Heads and was built from there. This is a reference not only to that band but also to one of the first songs I wrote for Shaky Hands ep ‘Takes Slowly Over’- which began life as a cover of ‘Girlfriend Is Better’ also by Talking Heads. If imitation is indeed the highest form of flattery then I think my tendency to chameleon socially around people I love finds fitting expression in a song that wears its musical references firmly on its sleeve.”

Watch the clip below, it was directed by Benjamin Zambo.

New Entry: Inhaler Unveil New Single "When It Breaks"

Dublin rock n roll four-piece Inhaler have unveiled their new single "When It Breaks".

The song is out tomorrow (October 15) via Polydor Records. Grab it here

The band's words: “We wrote the song in the last couple of months. Over lockdown we were floating around the instrumental demo, it was dark but also pretty hopeful sounding. When we went back to the studio over the summer and really got to put our heads together again, we felt like we had to write something about what was going on and how we felt about it.

“Coming off tour into lockdown was a huge adjustment for us after we had just got used to life on the tour. At first, it was a welcome break but pretty soon we were dying to get back to any festival or any gig where we could get our fix! The lyrics and the music communicate the anxiousness of how we were all feeling and still are now a couple months later. It’s definitely the most politically-driven song we’ve released so far. It’s our interpretation of this strange and imperfect world we’ve come to live in. Things are gonna change and we are gonna be there when they do.”

The song is part of our current playlist and is taken from his forthcoming new album 'Polydans', set to be released on February 26 via Greco-Roman / City Slang. Pre-order your copy here.

Speaking about it, Roosevelt said: “Feels Right” is about a "feeling of stoic empowerment. When I wrote the song, it began with an ESG-influenced funk loop, which even in its rawest form had something very euphoric and playful. It’s definitely one of the songs on the album that came together really easily - one of these where the song dictates which direction to go rather than you overthinking it for weeks.”

Maximo Park Announce New LP 'Nature Always Wins', Stream "Baby, Sleep"

Newcastle indie rock band Maximo Park have album announced the release of their seventh studio album 'Nature Always Wins'.

The follow-up to 2017's Risk to Exist, was produced by Grammy-winning producer Ben Allen (Animal Collective, Deerhunter), and recorded during lockdown in Newcastle, Liverpool and Atlanta. It will be out on 26th February 2021. Pre-order your copy here.

Nature Always Wins arrives as something of an examination, zeroing in on the notion of the self, identity as a band, and that of humanity as a whole. 

The title nods to the famous Nature vs Nurture debate. Discussing whether change is capable under the influence of time, perspective, environment or if we are destined to be bound by our own genetics, it asks, “who are we, and who do we want to be, and do we have any control over it?”.

Check out the album's tracklist and watch the video for their new single "Baby, Sleep".

Watch: Big Wild Releases New Single/Video "Who Do You Believe"

Portland electronic/dance/pop artist Big Wild (aka Jackson Stell) has released the video for his brand new single Who Do You Believe".

The song is out today via Counter Records, and is "an urgent question that producer, songwriter and vocalist Jackson Stell poses to his listeners ahead of the 2020 US election." Get it here.

Through an enthralling arrangement of arpeggiated synths, undulating guitar, rising walls of bass, drums and hypnotic vocals, “shouting at the screen,” Big Wild captures the hysteria of false narratives, misinformation and biased agendas disseminated by mass media during an unparalleled, divisive point in history. In both the song and its striking music video, Stell envisions a future in which we leave blind faith behind and build a culture driven by individual critical thought, bereft of propagated falsehoods and indoctrination.

Not only does Stell present a new sense of personal audacity to his listenership, he also unveils yet another facet of his stylistic versatility, as his psychedelic, mesmeric vocals and neo-pop production, reminiscent of a new-age Tame Impala, furthers him as the next alternative artist to watch.

To accompany the electric single, Big Wild revealed a bold visual, societal commentary in tandem, centered around the crucial pursuit of truth amid polarization and partisanship.

Psychedelic Porn Crumpets Announce New LP 'SHYGA! The Sunlight Mound', Stream "Tally-Ho"

Australian psych/grunge/rock band Psychedelic Porn Crumpets have announced the release of their new album  'SHYGA! The Sunlight Mound'.

The follow-up to 2019’s LP And Now For The Whatchamacallit, will be out on February 5th 2021. Pre-order your copy here.

Psychedelic Porn Crumpets have used their time off road to continue preparing themselves for the release of their fourth studio release, and an eventual blistering return to stages around the world with a heavy-hitter of an album primed for the live space.

We have already heard their album's first single ‘Mr. Prism’ in August, now the band have shared their new track "Tally-Ho".

The creation of SHYGA! The Sunlight Mound, came together in a different environment for McEwan and the results speak to the band’s evolution and McEwan’s evolution as a songwriter.

“For the first time in a long time I was home without any tours booked, no work, no deadlines and I felt free to create. My writing process became ritualistic; every morning starting with a small walk to the local bottle shop at 11am and writing whatever flowed, allowing myself to design in all styles without boundaries, and not trying to theme the album early on. I haven’t had the luxury of writing this way since the first record, which I spent almost a year working on. It felt like I was myself again, creating without opinion or constraints. I was gliding through weeks with a day seeming to pass.”\

Check out the album's tracklist and listen to "Tally-Ho" below.

SHYGA! The Sunlight Mound Tracklisting:
01. Big Dijon
02. Tally Ho
03. Sawtooth Monkfish

07. Hats Off to the Green Bins
08. Glitter Bug

Dublin-based post-punk band SPRINTS have unleashed the video for their new single "Drones".

The song is out now via Nice Swan Records and is taken from their forthcoming debut EP ‘Manifesto’. Grab it here

Speaking about it, songwriter Karla Chubb says: “’Drones’ is very literally about my struggles with imposter syndrome. I think being a female in music, I struggle a lot with feeling like I have something to prove. It’s not okay for me to just be good, I have to be great. I have to prove constantly why I am deserving to be on the stage, or holding that guitar or that microphone. That pressure can be very difficult to deal with, and I think a lot of the times you doubt yourself then, am I actually able to write? Or is this all shit? ‘Drones’ is about my experiences with dealing with this pressure, but realising that a lot of people have these struggles. The bars fill, the car parks fill, life seems to go on and on, and we can become so focused internally on our issues that you don’t realise that maybe while I was wishing I was someone else, they’re also wishing the same thing.”

The band combine guitar-driven hooks, motoric rhythm and emotive lyricism to create a unique sound that pulls from garage, grunge, punk and beyond.

Watch: Yore Reveals New Single/Video "Hawing (feat. Rakel Mjöll)"

Yore, the solo project from London based musician and producer Callum Brown, has revealed his new single "Hawing", featuring Dream Wife’s Rakel Mjöll Leifsdóttir.

As we transition into autumn, this is a dream pop song for sweater weather. This is ahead of his debut self-titled album out on 4th December via FLAT FIVE Records.

On ‘Hawing’, Callum said: “I wrote this whilst on tour with Ulrika (Spacek), I think we were travelling through Switzerland during Summer and I had my laptop in the front of the van. I felt inspired by the scenery and the freeing feeling of being on the road travelling. As cliche as it might sound I just intuitively came up with something that felt very Summery & bright. 

I’ve known Rakel from Dream Wife for a few years and she has an incredibly versatile voice, we tracked the vocals at our rehearsal space in Hackney a few years back & ended up working with the first initial melodies she came up with. I gave her roam to write whatever sprung to mind & it fit the mood of the song perfectly. I just wanted to make a dreamy pop song & I think it encapsulates that feeling.”

The Muckers Announce Debut LP 'Endeavor', Stream "Suspended"

New York rockers The Muckers have announced the release of their debut full-length album 'Endeavor'.

The 10-track record will be out on January 1st 2021 via Greenway Records. Pre-order your copy here.

Formed in the city of Tehran, Iran in 2014, The Muckers are mainly influenced by 60’s Psychedelic-Rock and some elements of the 70’s Funk Era. After moving to New York City, frontman and guitarist Emir Mohseni started to unleash funky and hypnotic arrangements of guitar that soon would be joined by Antony Azarmgin and his righteous bass.

As The New York Times tells the story, lead guitarist and vocalist “Emir Mohseni, was inspired by the Strokes to pursue a career in music — a passion that brought him to New York all the way from his native Iran.” The move, profiled across acclaimed publications, from Rolling Stone to Billboard, only marked the beginning of the band’s story. Upon landing in this new environment, Mohseni met the three guys that would become his closest friends, and build with him the vitalizing sound and enrapturing live show that The Muckers are garnering early praises for: Anthony Azarmgin at the bass, Chris Cawley on rhythm guitar, and John Zimmerman behind the drums.

Check out the album's tracklist and listen to their new single "Suspended", below.

Endeavor tracklist:
01. I Can't Go Without You
03. Roll The Dice
04. Golden Summer

Lee Paradise Announces New LP 'The Fink', Shares "Maintaining Platitudes"

Toronto cyborg-funk/post punk artist Lee Paradise has announced the release of his new album 'The Fink'.

The 12-track album was written and recorded between Berlin and Lee's home, and will be out on December 4 via Telephone Explosion Records. Pre-order your copy here.

Fusing dark electronic grooves with live instrumentation, the songs of The Fink are both a warning against our impending demise and a head-nodding soundtrack for the post-apocalypse.  

His new single, "Maintaining Platitudes" brings with it a throbbing, head-bobbing rhythm cut with a ping-ponging synth line. Lee's voice simmers below the surface once again, sparring with the blinking 808s, disco-infused hi-hats, and fizzing electronic swathes.

Speaking about the new single, Daniel Lee says: "Maxims exist to guide us, set precedent, give weight to the learned laws of society, rules of conduct and advice on how to live. But in doing so they also constrict and often conflict. After all, there is always an opposing maxim to the one that you are hearing." 

"These little folk laws are dogmatic," he continues. "In a sea of rigid suggestions, which is the correct one to follow? I look to them for superficial comfort and assurance but also find them incredibly oppressive in their sweeping judgments. They are meant to anchor us and provide guidance but, if taken too literally, can also be overwhelming and lead to paralysis. It’s good to be wary of this “law” and question the validity of a thing so staunch in its stance. Life is fluid and ever-changing, and values and ideas also evolve through growth. 'Maintaining Platitudes' is a satirical take on these maxims, and the act of clinging to them in times of despair."

In Lee’s words, this is an emo record with music as medicine to drown out the mind's clutter. Menacing and eerie in its nature, it looks to portray an uneasy state of mind and comes part-inspired by sci-fi tropes and ideas of a dystopian future. “I wanted it to sound like a wasteland," says Lee, "where the sun doesn't shine and humans have long ceased to be relevant out of self-destruction. Weeds are breaking through the cracks of the concrete and nature is slowly creeping back into urban blocks where humans used to live.”

Check out the album's tracklist and take a listen to "Maintaining Platitudes" below.

The Fink tracklist:
01. Lost Interest
02. Message To The Past
03. Tales To Tell
04. Maintaining Platitudes
05. Miscommunication
06. A Present To Ponder
07. What Is Your Safe Place?
08. Positive Manifestations
09. Self-Cafe
10. Hollow Face
11. Medicinal Magic
12. Outersphere

German post punk/noise rock band Kala Brisella have aired the video for their new single "Dark Star".

The song is taken from their forthcoming new album 'Lost In Labour', set to be released on November 13th via Tapete Records. Get it here.

Vocalist Lydia Gammill explains: "This song is about having a false sense of entitlement. Someone who feels attacked or like they’re being pushed out of their own world and not getting the credit they deserve. Someone with a delusional sense of self whose anger and frustration is humorous like the superintendent in a college frat movie. The opening lines make it seem like the narrator is being criticizing by someone else and they’re retaliation is like "you’ve got to be kidding me, you can’t say that about me! I invented water you punk!" …. sort of. "

Brooklyn-based art-punk/post-punk quintet Gustaf have released their new single "Mine", and its accompanied video.

The 7" single b/w Design  will be out on December 4th via Royal Mountain Records (US Girls, METZ, Mac DeMarco, Wild Pink), it was produced by Chris Coady (Beach House, Future Islands, TV On The Radio), and it’s a fantastically off-kilter post-punk track that really tows that line of art-rock. Get it here.

UPDATE:12/10/2020: "Mine" is our new Single of the Week!

Vocalist Lydia Gammill explains: "This song is about having a false sense of entitlement. Someone who feels attacked or like they’re being pushed out of their own world and not getting the credit they deserve. Someone with a delusional sense of self whose anger and frustration is humorous like the superintendent in a college frat movie. The opening lines make it seem like the narrator is being criticizing by someone else and they’re retaliation is like "you’ve got to be kidding me, you can’t say that about me! I invented water you punk!" …. sort of. "

New Entry: Low Island Drop New Single "Don't Let The Light In"

Oxford indie dance quartet Low Island have dropped their new single "Don't Let The Light In".

This is the first single from their hotly anticipated debut album, heavily featured on the upcoming FIFA 2021 game. It is a song about memory; trying to preserve a perfect moment in time but ultimately not being able to. Grab it here

"Don't Let The Light In" was close to never being recorded. Finishing the album in a studio in remote France, it was completed on the same day the French government locked the entire country down. A few hours later, the band had packed up their instruments and were travelling back to the UK to begin their own 2 month lockdown. This song is that moment, that memory, captured in time.

Roosevelt Announce New LP 'Polydans', Stream "Feels Right"

Cologne based electro-pop singer, songwriter and producer Marius Lauber aka Roosevelt, has announced the release of his new album 'Polydans'.

The follow up to his 2018's  Young Romance, was written, produced and mixed by Marius, and will be out on February 26 via Greco-Roman / City Slang. Pre-order your copy here.

“It felt incredibly liberating to realize that I’m in a position now to go to the studio everyday and just do the music that feels right,” Lauber says in a statement. “In this respect, Polydans is my most personal album yet, as there hasn’t been any creative limitations – I just did what made me happy.”

About his new single "Feels Right" he says: “Feels Right” is about a "feeling of stoic empowerment. When I wrote the song, it began with an ESG-influenced funk loop, which even in its rawest form had something very euphoric and playful. It’s definitely one of the songs on the album that came together really easily - one of these where the song dictates which direction to go rather than you overthinking it for weeks.”

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

Polydans Tracklisting:
01. Easy Way Out
02. Strangers
03. Feels Right
04. Closer To My Heart
05. Montjuic
06. Forget
07. See You Again
08. Lovers
09. Echoes
10. Sign
