Liverpool post punk band Courting have unveiled their new single "David Byrne's Badside".
The song is out today (May 15) via Nice Swan Records, from the label' series ‘Nice Swan Introduces…’.
Lead singer and guitarist Sean, says: “David Byrne’s Badside has nothing to do with the Talking Heads frontman. It’s about class tourism and the casual racism that exists in Britain today. It’s a portrait of the type of person who votes UKIP and wants to close our borders yet promises they’re not a racist. The type of person who says to buy British yet owns a Porsche.”
Dundee indie pop/synth/electronic duo Beta Waves have shared their new single "UDH2" (U Don’t Have 2).

Los Angeles native musician, producer and vocalist Jonathan Bates aka Big Black Delta has revealed the video for his brand new single "Lord Only Knows".
The song is out now and is taken from his forthcoming album '4', set to arrive on July 10th. Pre-order it here.
"Getting things off to a glorious start with heavyweight guitars and lush hooks, "Lord Only Knows" is a mission statement set to major-keyed avant-pop music. According to Bates, "It starts like Whitesnake and ends like Liberace," reflecting a renewed interest in heavy-metal (see also: some breakthrough sessions with Dhani Harrison.) “Through therapy and proper medication, I’d hit a new place as a conscious being. Being of service was this warm, bright light that I wanted to be near. This song is that to me. When I close my eyes I see the shape, colors and probability waveform of where I’m trying to go. If that makes sense.”
Munich-based indie pop/rock quartet KYTES have revealed "Supalonely", their cover version of New Zealand singer BENEE, featuring Nina Chuba.
The band's words: “Supalonely is a fantastic song we discovered weeks ago at the start of self-isolation. We love how the song deals with a very sad theme but still makes you feel happy afterwards. It helped us get through some rough times, not being able to tour after our album release...more than 20 confirmed festivals cancelled in 2020.
We had a lot of fun playing and recording the song and we can’t get the song out of our heads since then.
Huge shout out to Nina Chuba
We met Nina at a surfcamp in the south of France last year and nobody else couldn’t have done it better .”

The song is taken from their forthcoming fifth studio album 'Darkest Dreams', which will be released this fall on Italians Do It Better. Grab it here.
With "The Ocean Between Us", we are treated to a dose of pure 1980's bliss spinning the fatal tale of a Summer romance that was never meant to last. Through this looking glass, Deniz Çiçek offers us a closer look into a world where dreams collide with reality. The thirteen song suite explores what happens when we plunge headfirst into our deepest fantasies and desires - even if it means losing ourselves along the way.
