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.”

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.”

Watch: Roosevelt Airs Music Video For "Feels Right"

Cologne based electro-pop singer, songwriter and producer Marius Lauber aka Roosevelt, has aired the video for his newest single "Feels Right"

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.”
