Munich-based indie pop/rock quartet KYTES have unleashed their new single "Runaway".
The song is taken from their forthcoming second album ‘good luck’, which will be out on February 28 via their own label Frisbee Records. Pre-order your copy here.
About the song, the band said: “‘Go Out’ is a song that throws us right back to our teenage days. Life was way easier. After school we’d just ring on each others doorbells and hang out. No smartphones needed. No group chats, no voice memos or video chats. If we couldn’t just go out, we called on this thing called the landline telephone. Some of you may still know it. So we feel ‘Go Out‘ is a throwback song, lots of nostalgia, good memories… and it’s definitely gonna be a banger live.”
Cassadaga, Florida dream pop/shoegaze project Cathedral Bells (aka Matthew Messore) has released his new single "In Absentia".
The song is taken from his forthcoming debut album 'Velvet Spirit', set to arrive on March 6 via Good Eye Records. Pre-order your copy here.
“This song is a metaphor for the destructive tendencies human beings have in their relationships,” Messore explains. “It speaks about wanting to be open to life and other people but also feeling a need to shut off from everyone completely. ‘Cause I want it all / To crash into the wall’ sometimes we want everything from someone, but then it ends up breaking us down and haunting us.”
Bergen, Norway haze-pop/rock band Great News have aired the video for their latest single "Greedy Little Thing".
The song is part of our current playlist and is taken from the band's forthcoming new album 'Now And Them', set to be released on April 17th.
Speaking about it, the band said: "It's a song that came along very quickly, it sort of wrote it self. It's about how we consume too much, and how we measure happiness through materialism. It's just wrong."
Texas shoegaze pioneers Ringo Deathstarr have announced the release of their new studio album ‘Ringo Deathstarr’.
The 11-track record, including their new single "God Help The Ones You Love", will be out via Club AC30 on March 27th. Pre-order your copy here.
‘Ringo Deathstarr’ poetically sees the band in a stage of personal and musical maturity. A staple of the genre with a rich back catalogue of revered material, it’s on their sixth full length that Ringo Deathstarr address the kind of themes that can only come from life experience.
It is a dynamic, introspective psychedelia, multi-layered album with Frazer and bassist Alex Gehring’s trademark, gorgeous, duel harmonies. ‘Nagoya’ opens with cinematic ambience before the groove-laden gothic allure of ‘God Help The Ones You Love’ and ‘Gazin’. An upbeat, more direct shoegaze bristling with a precision and confidence that’s rarely captured with such energy, and the 90s seeped ‘Once Upon A Freak’ as well as ‘Be Love’ elevate the bands now iconic sound pallet.
Elsewhere the reverb-soaked and dark 80s post-punk of ‘In Your Arms’ and ‘Heaven Obscured’ continue to show a band unwilling to stick to the rule book, with poppier sensibilities, while ‘Lazy Lane’ and ‘The Same Again’ showcase their more lo-fi and garage-rock leanings. And in true Deathstarr fashion album closer ‘Cotton Candy Clouds’ sees us out with a climatic cacophony of guitar work and riotous power from drummer Daniel Coborn.
