Watch: Lacuna Common Drop Music Video For "Learn To Feel"

Oxford indie rock band Lacuna Common have dropped the video for their latest single "Learn To Feel".

The song is part of our current playlist and came out in late January. Grab it here.

Speaking on the song, frontman Alfie Franks explains, “It’s a song about seeing the men around our hometown feel like they need to compete with each other to be this ‘alpha male’ character. It’s a pack mentality and a poison and it frustrates me. I don’t really like to write quote-unquote ‘political’ songs, but I felt like I needed to put this sentiment across. We’re not ‘the political band or ‘the band that doesn’t want to be the political band’ - there’s enough of both knocking around at the moment. We just write about what’s in front of us, good or bad.”

 The video was directed By Oscar McNab. Check out below.

Watch: Pottery Share New Single/Video "Take Your Time"

Canadian indie rock/garage punk/psych rock band Pottery have shared the video for their new single "Take Your Time".

The song is taken from their upcoming debut album ‘Welcome To Bobby’s Motel’, set to arrive on 10th April through Partisan Records and Royal Mountain Records. Pre-order your copy here.

Speaking about it, the band explain: “It’s not a secret that we enjoy occasionally using drugs recreationally, in the past they’ve helped guide us creatively and personally. But this song is about the darker side of drugs, when they become habits. It’s about the tough spot that stuff can put you in, beyond the isolated experience of briefly having a good time while you’re using them. You spend all your money, ruin your body, and don’t get anything out of it except for a fun night.”

New Entry: Pale Blue Premiere New Single "I Walk Alone At Night"

Bayonne NJ/LA County electronic/drone project Pale Blue (aka Elizabeth Wight and Mike Simonetti) have premiered their new single "I Walk Alone At Night".

The song is taken from their new EP 'Breathe', which will be out on March 20 via 2MR. Pre-order your copy here.

‘I Walk Alone At Night’ continues Elizabeth’s essential message from previous single "Breathe", but from the perspective of fear and the heightened sense of danger abusive experiences create. She wrote it just after she’d moved into her own apartment and began volunteering on the rape crisis helpline at the East Los Angeles Women’s Center. “When I first heard this song, I closed my eyes for a moment and thought about all the times I was scared, all the ridiculous things I do because of fear, and how wonderful it must feel to live without even the slightest bit of fear,” says Elizabeth - whose powerful spoken word vocal is delivered over both a chugging, 3am electroid groove and a stripped-back 6am acid house workout. “I wouldn’t have been able to write this type of thing if not for the influence and strength of feminist icons Kathleen Hanna and Kim Gordon. They, and so many others got me through high school and continue to get me through today. What I really want to know is how this song makes people feel.” .

Watch: The Room in the Wood Air New Single/Video "Fun of the Fair"

Liverpool rock/new wave/alt band The Room in the Wood have aired the video for their new single "Fun of the Fair".

Stomping beats with nods to glam rock, name-checking T-Rex, 70s reminiscence and youth gang flair - all the right ingredients for a 3 minute POP song !

About the track, frontman Dave Jackson says the following: “My youth, growing up in Liverpool in 70s. The music was always Tamla, Glam Rock etc blaring loud. An era where gangs of smoothies, troggs and grebos roamed the parks you had to bribe over 18s to get you alcohol from off licences. Big party seven pint cans of beer that you had to open with a screwdriver and a brick when you realised no one had brought an opener. Being chased by gangs of boot boys and the mysterious magic of being out in the night when you’re young, doing stuff you’re not supposed to.”
