Watch: Vacation Manor Drop New Single/Video "Parachute"

Virginia indie rock/pop band Vacation Manor have dropped the video for their new single "Parachute".

The song is out today (April 30) via Nettwerk Music Group and is taken from their forthcoming self-titled debut album. Get it here.

From the duo: "‘Parachute’ is a song we’ve been after for a while. The whole feel of it comes from our 90’s alt rock influences that manage to blend a head-bobbing and upbeat groove, underneath a layer of melancholy. It took a lot of re-writing and re-recording to get it to sound how we were imagining it, but we’re really proud of what we captured. This song fills a very specific role on the album, but we tend to think that about all of the songs on this record. There are albums that zero in and explore a particular sonic landscape, and others that feel like taking a drive across the country and you’re in a new place by the end. To me, this record feels like it takes you for a ride.”

From the band: “With all sorts of wings be they left or right swinging for each other with mocking tweets or cancel culture as their  weaponry, it's easy to feel lost as an onlooking bystander in a world full of hostility. Relationships become strained and  questioning your own mental stability becomes just another daily problem as you peruse through endless news articles,  each one presenting you with a slice of self-loathing or existential dread. But nothing is to fear as the longer you stare upon  the words you read in your sunday newspaper or mobile device the more you will feel the sweet embrace and comfort of Big  Brother's gentle arms. Orwell's Idyllic future has come to be, and everything is going to be just okay.”

The song is part of our current playlist and is out now. Get it here.

Speaking about it, band member Josh Hart said: “The lyrics that Olly wrote for the track took a really simple but stark form. I think we both enjoy how literal and honest the track is, and that’s matched with probably our most simple song structure we’ve ever had, but that chorus just has impact and I think it will be somewhat of a protagonist in our live set. You can’t not go nuts for that, surely?”.

The song "a love letter to all the vibrant African disco and funk of the 70s and 80s", is out today (April 28) and is the lead single from his forthcoming debut album due out November 2021 via The Liquid Label. Get it here.

Noon Garden says of the single: 

"Sonically this is the most I’ve ever drawn on my African heritage and love for African music. I was obsessed with Charly Kingson’s track ‘Nimele Bolo’ for a time which has such an infectious, repetitive bass line and groove that I wanted to explore something similar myself. Musicians like Nigerian funk master William Onyeabor influenced all the bright synth work and I even named the song after a popular recording studio in Lagos called Decca Studios where a lot of my favourite African artists like the Lijadu Sisters, Obenezer Obey and King Sunny Ade recorded albums. Lyrically it’s a celebration of ambition and determination and a call to exorcise one's self-doubt"

The song is about letting go and allowing time to take you on a grand journey of self discovery, and finding empowerment in all the life experience one has gained. We need to find the transcendent in a world rooted in constant change and destruction. Otherwise we risk being washed ashore."

Killing Joke's Big Paul Ferguson Announces New LP 'Virtual Control', Airs "Extrapolate"

Founding member and co-creative mind behind proto-industrial post-punk icons Killing Joke, Big Paul Ferguson has announced the release of his new solo album 'Virtual Control'.

Featuring ten original tracks written with guitarist Mark Gemini Thwaite and highlighted with special guest appearances from former Marilyn Manson member Tim Skold as well as Die Krupps mastermind Jürgen Engler, Virtual Control conjures a dense and foreboding aural atmosphere, layering guitars, synths and Ferguson’s own distinctive vocals, that underscores the thoughtfulness of Ferguson’s introspective and observant lyrics. It will be out on June 25. Pre-order your copy here.

In anticipation of the album’s full release on June 25, we are excited to share Virtual Control’s first single “Extrapolate,” one of the album’s most propulsive tracks that rides an unrelenting guitar/bass hook supported by taut percussion and a hypnotic lead vocal, expertly mixed by award-winning producer Tom Dalgety (Pixies, Rammstein).

Ferguson shares these thoughts on what inspired the song, “My reflections on the dichotomies, social and personal, of these times. How our lives are being affected by isolation coupled with the bombardment of conflicting information. Our trust in what is real and true being challenged on a daily basis.”

Check out the album's tracklist and watch the video for "Extrapolate", below.

Virtual Control  Tracklist:
01. Lapdogs
02. Shiny Toys
03. The Unraveling
04. Extrapolate
05. Sea Of Judgement
06. Seeping Through The Cracks feat. Tim Skold
07. Data Lama
08. Glass Houses
09. Plausible Deniability
10. Dystopian Vibe feat. Jürgen Engler


Piroshka Announce New LP 'Love Drips And Gathers', Stream “Scratching At The Lid"

London supergroup Piroshka (made up of members from Lush, Elastica, Moose and Modern English) have announced the release of their second studio album 'Love Drips And Gathers'.

The record – named after a line in a Dylan Thomas poem – is the follow-up to their 2019's debut Brickbat, and was inspired by love, family, belonging, memory. It will be out on July 23 via Bella Union. Pre-order your copy here.

The four band members are former Lush vocalist/guitarist (and former redhead) Miki Berenyi, former Moose guitarist KJ "Moose" McKillop, Modern English bassist Mick Conroy and former Elastica drummer Justin Welch. 

Love Drips And Gathers follows a more introspective line – the ties that bind us, as lovers, parents, children, friends – to a suitably subtler, more ethereal sound, whilst still revelling in energy and drama.

“If Brickbat was our Britpop album, then Love Drips And Gathers is shoegaze!” reckons vocalist/guitarist Miki Berenyi, formerly of Lush, a band that effortlessly bridged the two genres like no other. “It wasn’t intentional; we just wanted a different focus. I’ve always seen debut albums as capturing a band’s first moments, when you really have momentum, and then the second album is the chance for a more thoughtful approach.”

Bassist Mick Conroy (Modern English) agrees. “Brickbat was a classic first album; noisy and raucous. On Love Drips And Gathers, we’ve calmed down and explored sounds, and space.”

The way Love Drips And Gathers changes shape and dynamic is less a reprise of nineties Brit indie than a transformation into a more shivery, Euro-mantic version with glistening electronic filigrees.

The  band have also shared their new single “Scratching At The Lid”, take a listen below the album's tracklist.

Love Drips And Gathers Tracklist:
01. Hastings
02. The Knife Thrower's Daughter
03. Scratching At The Lid
04. Loveable
05. VO
06. Wanderlust
07. Echo Loco
08. Familiar
09. We Told You

Watch: Twin Diver Unleash New Single "Sweet Sick"

Irish post-punk duo Twin Diver have unleashed their new single "Sweet Sick".

Speaking about it, the duo explain: “‘Sweet Sick’ is about boredom and existential dread. A lot of my friends who are also in their early 20s have talked about not knowing what they’re ‘supposed’ to be doing with their lives. 

Trying to plan your life is a losing game at the best of times, but given the pandemic, I think that feeling was exacerbated for many people, including us.”

Frontman Conor speaks on the track; “Our sound changes depending on our agenda at any time, finding a different stride with every step. With ‘Hands Up’ we found ourselves dropped into a western rerun armed with a fiercely cowboyish twang on our six string shooter. We wanted to forth a thematic, semi abstract prose, attacking businessmen and penny pinchers in a flurry of suitably delirious criticisms.”

Speaking about the band's Taylor Wright said: "[The song] is about people we knew while we were younger and how we see them doing the same things now that they were doing back then. Is about getting past that. Where we are from, it doesn't happen very often and people often get stuck in a cycle. But being from around here, these villages become a part of you. So there's always a temptation to fall back into your old ways. It's like a comfort. It's about temptations and how your decisions have an impact on who you become."

Speaking about the song and the video, frontman James says: “The song is quite literally about love lasting forever. Veiled in wordplay to varying degrees line by line, it reveals certain techniques of sexual alchemy used in the pursuit of immortality.

The video’s imagery is reasonably true to the song’s meaning. We feel it succeeds in expanding upon the initial concept, bringing the ideas through a more nuanced spectrum of experience via mood and visual interpretation. I could go scene by scene but I may have already said too much. I wanna leave some of it open. But I will say every frame is purposeful and intended.”

British electronic duo The Chemical Brothers (aka Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons) have unveiled the video for their new single "The Darkness That You Fear".

The song is out today (April 23) through Astralworks. Grab your copy here.

“The Darkness That You Fear is a hopeful piece of music. When we found the combination of the different voices worked set to the flow of the music it made us feel optimistic, like it was something we wanted to share.” - Tom Rowlands

​ The video is directed by @Ruffmercy “When I first heard the song I immediately connected with the theme and the overall positive vibe. New government rules for relaxing lockdown had been announced and combined with the sun shining, it left me feeling positive about the forthcoming summer. It also triggered a strong sense of nostalgia that led to me going back to look for visual inspiration from the period in time when I first discovered The Chemical Brothers in the mid ’90’s. The video combines archive rave footage from the mid to late 90’s with hand painted Super 8 film textures and hand drawn animation. I love using colour to create chaos and evoke emotions and this was the perfect project to do that.”

Edinburgh, Scotland alt/pop band We Were Promised Jetpacks have revealed their new single "If It Happens".

The song features on their new 7” single, set to arrive on 29th June via Big Scary Monsters. Pre-order here.

This new track signifies a change in musical direction for the band. ‘If It Happens’ is all at once grand yet restrained – sonically reflective of its lyrical examination of the bigger picture of life and how that can be boiled down to a simple phrase; “If it happens, it happens.” 

Lead singer Adam Thompson explains:“I feel that ‘If It Happens’ expresses a lot about what I had been trying to get across to myself. It was all part of my new mindset of trying to be more positive about what I have and not always thinking about what I don’t. It’s about embracing the idea of happiness, doing what you can to encourage it and generally be a lot more ‘c’est la vie’ about everything. If it happens, it happens; if it doesn’t, it doesn’t. What can you do?”

New Entry: Gary Numan Drops New Single "Now And Forever"

English electro-industrial pioneer Gary Numan has dropped his new single "Now And Forever". 

The song is taken from his upcoming 18th solo studio album 'Intruder', set to be released on May 21. Pre-order your copy here.

‘Now And Forever’ presents a subtle change of tone to the tracks that have preceded it. Its spare industrial opening marches like a funeral procession for a fatally wounded world, but its comparatively luminous synths and warm female backing vocals establish a mood of hope rather than pure despair. That ambience also resonates in the lyrics, which are viewed from the perspective of a world which has purged the population that plagued it. There’s regret for what has happened, but there’s the possibility for redemption at some point in the distant future: “Until it’s your time, I’ll wait here for you, forever.”  

“This is one of two songs on Intruder where I tried to write a lyric that continued with the earth speaking theme of the album, but also had a second, entirely different meaning within it. In the case of Now And Forever the lyric is not only a message from the earth to humanity, but also a message from me to my wife Gemma. ” says Gary.

Watch: Roadkeeper Share Music Video For "Enemy Mine"

Texas indie rock/psych/shoegaze four-piece Roadkeeper have shared the video for their their politically charged single "Enemy Mine".

With a blend of shimmering psychedelic guitar, assertive synthesizers and melodic vocals, ‘Enemy Mine’ tells the story of young people vulnerable to far-right radicalisation. It encompasses everything that Roadkeeper are about.

Roadkeeper on the meaning behind the track: "The lyrics to Enemy Mine were written about the far right radicalization of vulnerable young people in the US by white nationalist professional pundits who are fed viewers and readers by algorithms on social media and YouTube. There is an organized effort to convert impressionable young people into radical white supremacists and encourage them to undertake radical action against marginalized people and progressive political movements. Enemy Mine is about the dissonance between the perceived realities of radical white supremacists and that of everyone else."
