It was our first time in a studio together, because we had recorded everything ourselves before.

Watch: Youth Sector Premiere New Single/Video "Teeth"

Brighton art-rock band Youth Sector have premiered the video for their new single "Teeth".

Taking inspiration from late 70s/80s-era funk, most notably in the joyful interaction of the guitars and the bass, on ‘Teeth’ the band reference Nile Rogers and CHIC’s knack for penning interesting, active instrumentals whilst remaining totally accessible and never overwhelming or self-indulgent. 

UPDATE 30/11/2020: "Teeth" is our new Single of the Week!

Commenting on the track, which is laced with one of the most unforgettable bass grooves of the year, the band said: “‘Teeth’ sees us continue to push into more rhythmic territory and embrace the influence of funk bands Parliament and Tower Of Power, with its constant danceable groove punctuated by wonky guitars throughout. Lyrically the single explores the sinister magnetism of untrustworthy people and the way they can enter the lives of those vulnerable to their charms.”

Youth Sector’s music is a coiled spring of urgency and unpredictable energy, while lyrically offering a sense of catharsis for the confusion of modern adult life. Regimented drum beats and saw-tooth synth sounds are matched with erratic, dynamic vocals. 

“We’re drawn to the balance between making something sound interesting and exciting while keeping it melodic and catchy,” explains front man Nick Tompkins of their approach to writing. “It's a difficult but enjoyable line to tread. Lyrically the idea of writing through the eyes of a character is something that grabs me particularly, as it helps me to empathise with and explore perspectives that I don't hold myself, as well as use characters to demonstrate more serious frustrations I have with the world.”

New Entry: Communions Unveil New Single "Splendour"

Danish post-punk/guitar band Communions have unveiled their new single "Splendour".

The song is out today (November 27) via Tambourhinoceros. Buy it here.

While “Splendour” still features the contributions of ex-bandmates Jacob van Deurs Formann (guitar) and Frederik Lind Köppen (drums), Communions are now solely led by the Rehof brothers, Martin and Mads. With their brotherly musical connection at the center, the Rehof brothers have assembled a new five piece constellation going forwards.

It is a song about “a sickly, unattainable love. One which possesses a destructive power.” Communions’ Martin Rehof sings of a “crowd of lovers” under the influence of a lust so intoxicating that it sends them “leaping in the grave”.

“I wouldn’t say that it’s necessarily about a specific person” says Martin Rehof, musing on the song’s multifarious meaning.  He continues: “Rather, in a less concrete sense, it’s about the oppressive power that certain things in life can have over you. For instance, making art is something I love, but not something I feel I can help, and often it can be quite painful and fruitless. It’s like this thing, whatever it is, has chosen you, and not the other way around. It might inflict you with pain, but you almost come to enjoy it; you sort of accept it, embrace it, and maybe even thrive on it. It’s the context of someone addicted to someone or something else — where the power dynamics are skewed.”
