Watch: SPINN Reveal New Single/Video "Daydreaming"

Liverpool indie pop/dream pop/jangle band SPINN have revealed the video for their newest single "Daydreaming".

The song is taken from their brand new EP of the same name, out today (June 30) featuring their previous songs "The Things She Says To Me" and "BILLIE (feat Yumi Zouma)". Get it here.

“After a year without live performance we set out to capture the energy of a band playing together in a room once more. Set in a claustrophobic domestic setting the video navigates the escape route daydreaming provides from the reality of life. Recurring motifs of time-lapsed flowers represent the transient nature of love - fading and blooming simultaneously to represent both heartbreak and hope.” - Luca Bailey

“We’ve had ‘Daydreaming’ for years and it always goes off live, but we could never get it right in the studio. I’d almost given up - so when we recorded some of the new songs we decided to give this one last shot and finally, a new guitarist and a global pandemic later, we finally got it to sound good” - Johnny Quinn

New Entry: Vitalic Unleashes New Single "Carbonized"

French electronic DJ/Producer Vitalic has unleashed his new single "Carbonized".

The song is taken from his forthcoming fifth studio album 'DISSIDÆNCE', which will be released in two parts, with the first part set to be release October 15 via Citizen Records.

Speaking about it Vitalic explains: “‘Carbonized’ is about toxic people who can kill without touching, without weapons - just by their nature. Somewhere between American or English 70s EBM and French electroclash on steroids, the punk energy turns decidedly to the dancefloor in these four minutes of screaming synthesizers and saturated beats.”

Watch: Oscar Lang Unveils Music Video For "21st Century Hobby"

London-based indie/alternative artist Oscar Lang has unveiled the video for his latest single "21st Century Hobby".

The song is part of our current playlist and is taken from his forthcoming debut album 'Chew The Scenery', which will be available on 16th July through Dirty Hit. Pre-order your copy here.

“‘21st Century Hobby’ is a tune based on the idea of society’s obsession with sharing your life online and comparing yourself to other people,” Lang explains in a press release. “There was one point where I was spending 13 hours a week on social media, which equated to about a month every year. That was a really dark time for me – I always thought that it would never affect me, but it took some time to realise that it was subconsciously affecting my mental health.”

“With the ‘21st Century Hobby’ video,” he continued, “I wanted to bring to life the experience of scrolling endlessly on social media into physical characters dancing around me to show the chaos and over-the-top-ness of everyday online activity.”

We Were Promised Jetpacks Announce New LP 'Enjoy the View', Stream "Fat Chance"

Edinburgh, Scotland alt/pop band We Were Promised Jetpacks have announced the release of their new studio album 'Enjoy the View'.

The follow-up to 2018’s The More I Sleep the Less I Dream, will be released on 10th September via Big Scary Monsters, featuring the new song "Fat Chance" and previous new single "If It Happens". Pre-order here.

The new tracks signify a change in musical direction for the band, with ‘Fat Chance’ an ode to overcoming, and even thriving, despite the odds. 
 
Lead singer Adam Thompson explains; “We started properly writing this album at the end of March 2020 when we realised that everything was going to be shut down. We had a US tour lined up in May but obviously had to cancel. So from March to June, we sent each other ideas remotely and collaborated that way. I was so glad we had a project to focus on when proper lockdown hit. When we were able to get into our practice space in July, we were finally able to jam and write more like we normally do. This song came out of those sessions pretty early on.”
 
Longtime fans of We Were Promised Jetpacks alongside music critics, often cite the band’s flair for writing infectious pop songs encased within grandiose guitar driven rock soundscapes, yet new single ‘Fat Chance’ offers a change of pace and a glimpse into what to expect from the forthcoming album. With tightly packed drums and cleverly woven guitar arrangements, the band prioritise the track’s melodic core with effortless dexterity.
 
“I was just messing about on guitar in our studio and got the verse chords and as soon as the other guys joined in, we had a song! We can sometimes spend weeks and months and years trying to get the right parts together but this one flowed. I finished the pre-chorus and chorus that day and sent the demo to the rest of the band and we were excited about it straight away” Thompson said.

With versions of the songs being passed between the band members remotely, they found the collaborative process engaging and rewarding. “Writing together this way allowed us to stay in contact all the time, talk about the songs and what we were individually and collectively trying to achieve with them. Even though we were unable to be in the same room, this way of working allowed us to create together and communicate more directly,” says Adam. “Having music to focus on during lockdown assured us that we wanted to keep writing songs together for many more years.”
 
“We’re all very appreciative of the people who are listening to us,” Darren says. “It pushes us to keep getting better.” Nodding to both the band and their ever-loyal fans, Adam agrees. “It is very much our band, and we do this because we can do it together.”

Watch: Wings of Desire Premiere New Single/Video "Choose A Life"

British indie pop duo Wings of Desire (the new project of INHEAVEN’s James Taylor and Chloe Little) have premiered the video for their new single "Choose A Life".

The song is out today (June 29) and is taken from their upcoming new EP 'Amun-Ra', aet to arrive on 13th August via WMD Recordings. Get it here.

From the duo: “‘Choose A Life’ is about our automated programming which convinced us that once we get ‘there’ we will be happy. That once we’ve acquired the material check list we will be fulfilled, but this is never the case. The song explores finding joy in the smaller moments of the everyday, the mundane, those micro expressions that we take for granted. And realising that you don’t have to bend the world to make your mark. That it’s better to just enjoy it.”

Soft Riot Releases New Compilation 'Second Lives'

Glasgow-based synth pop/electronic/minimal/dark wave musician JJD aka Soft Riot has released 'Second Lives', a new compilation of rare and reworked tracks. 

The compilation features completely redone versions of a few older tracks from the 2013 album Fiction Prediction, outtake un-released tracks from When Push Comes To Shove (2019) and Chin Up (2020) as well as newer mixes of out-of-print cover songs: "Lovers In A Dangerous Time" by Bruce Cockburn and "We Are The Chopped" by Nomeansno.

Originally the concept for such a release was to be a more comprehensive archive of unreleased material that has been collecting over the past decade, including demos, odd bits and other ephemera, but with this final version as Second Lives, sees the release fine-tuned into an album of its own right, focusing on key tracks and bringing out their strengths, updating old tracks — often ones that are still played out live — to give them new life and perspective.

Stream the album below the tracklisting.

Second Lives Tracklist:
01. Lovers In A Dangerous Time (Bruce Cockburn cover)
02. Cinema Eyes (Version IV)
03. Another Drone In Your Head (Second Version)

The Zephyr Bones Announce New LP 'Neon Body', Stream "No One"

Barcelona-based beach wave/psych pop band The Zephyr Bones have announced the release of their second studio album 'Neon Body'.

The follow-up to 2017's Secret Place, was produced by Brian Silva and Santi Garcia, and will be out in October (exact date TBC) through La Castanya. Pre-order your copy here.

The record finds the four-piece, made up of Silva (vocals, guitar and synthesizers), Jossip Tkalcic (guitar and vocals), Marc López (drums), and Carlos Ramos (bass), exploring ideas centered around love, self-affirmation, loss, and hope. Musically, it finds the group tapping into their "beach wave" aesthetic once more, a style of music that they helped nurture alongside a few other groups in Barcelona back in 2017. It is sound and approach to music gravitated around spangled psych-rock reminiscent of the radiant, sunkissed environments that surround the scene.

With the new single, "No One", the band turns the dial on those zipping riffs and fervent rhythms, setting a tempo for the rest of the album – tracklist and artwork to come shortly – with dizzying washes of guitar and synth. It's a fine example of the band's off-center approach to psych-rock that finds scintillating pace inter-locking with a wonderful penchant for melody. Speaking about the first single, Silva says: "'No One' surprises us in the same way that love does when it arrives: that instant connection, an instant match on the first listen. A feast of suggestive guitars and synths that encourages both dancing and humming to a magnetic chorus."

Director, Artur Tort expands on the concept behind the video to say: "We wanted to create a very rhythmic video with ecstatic and contemplative moments. We used natural landscapes, trees, and flowers, creating psychedelic dialogues with the music. We shot in film and exposed it in various frame rates to explore some of the mystical and poetic qualities that it can provide. We combined it with some portraits and screen tests of the musicians. They all have their own character and personality in the way they dress, move and express themselves, and we tried to reflect all that as much as we could." 

Get the single here and watch the video below.



Neon Body Tracklist:
01. So High

03. No One
04. Afterglow

Wingtips Announce New LP 'Cutting Room Floor', Stream "Cross the Line"

Chicago new goth-pop/post punk duo Wingtips (aka Vincent Segretario and Hannah Avalon) have announced the release of their second studio album 'Cutting Room Floor'.

Cutting Room Floor maintains a base in ’80s sounds, but sees the band ascend to a new place of pure, timeless songcraft. With brighter melodies, deeper emotions, and a stripped-down approach that lets the songs shine, Wingtips have become something bigger than a retro act. With hooks so compelling they are cinematic in scope, and vocals that grab hold of the heart, Cutting Room Floor marks the genesis of a new style: “new romantic for post-millennial end times,” in the band’s own words.

The video for ‘Shoot The Lights’ was directed by Roger Sargent (Sleaford Mods/The Libertines/Fat White Family) and filmed on a psychedelic trip around London and Roger’s front room. Roger explains the idea behind the video“ it’s about coming out of lockdown, with all the bright lights being tantalisingly close, both figuratively and literally and the toll it’s taken on everyone’s mental health”.

New Entry: MCRAE Share New Single "How To Start A Fire"

Manchester indie rock/punk band MCRAE have shared their new single "How To Start A Fire".

Coming quickly off the back of previous single ‘Lucy’, how to start a fire draws more from the band’s punk influences, while still retaining a distinctly poppy feeling through its shimmering guitars. 

Described by the band as being “a back and forth in every sense of the word, lyrically it touches on the idyllic modern relationship - musically it boasts big riffs and catchy melodies plus potentially the biggest outro we’ve written!” 

‘How To Start A Fire’ is the perfect embodiment of MCRAE’s sound; a deft combination of snarling punk cynicism juxtaposed against blissful pop optimism.

Watch: Roadkeeper Air New Single/Video "Take the L"

Texas indie rock/psych/shoegaze four-piece Roadkeeper have aired the video for their new single "Take the L".

The song, produced and mixed by the band’s vocalist John H, was written about the ongoing immigrant and refugee crisis at the US/Mexico border.

Speaking about the writing process they say: “The song started out as an acoustic voice memo, which is very rare for us. The demo version was heavily inspired by David Crosby’s newer albums, his cadence and the way he integrates lyrics and melodies. We also were jamming a lot of Joey Bada$$ at the time, and the way he and his producers would refocus the tracks between the instrumental and vocal depending on what was happening in the songs. We produced and mixed the track ourselves remotely in the shed behind John’s house in Austin, with some initial pieces recorded pre-pandemic at John’s old attic in east Texas.”

Watch: Lazarus Kane Share New Single/Video "Milk At My Door"

US/UK indie wave/pop-funk band Lazarus Kane have shared the video for their brand new single "Milk At My Door".

The song is out now and is taken from their forthcoming debut EP 'Psychobabble', set to arrive on September 10 via So Young Records. Pre-order it here.

'Psychobabble' is a wonderfully jarring collection of songs that continue to defy any kind of genre. Taking cues from early Brian Eno, no wave, 80’s hardcore and experimental electronic music, such as Biosphere and Cluster, the songs weave and morph in front of the listener with little to no indication of where they might go next, all whilst maintaining Jakes' surreal sense of humour.

Milk At My Door’ takes aim at the cult of self-improvement and conspicuous consumption, questioning where our priorities truly lie as the world is falling apart around us whilst simultaneously examining our obsession with nostalgic imagery when we're all so completely dominated by technology. Take a sip.

New Entry: Pozi Unleash New Single "Sea Song"

London punk/post punk band Pozi have unleashed their new single "Sea Song".

The song is taken from their upcoming new EP 'Typing' which will be out on 29th October via PRAH Recordings. Pre-order your copy here.

You can link themes of anxiety all the way back to drummer/vocalist Toby Burroughs, violinist/vocalist Rosa Brook and bassist/vocalist Tom Jones’ 2019 LP PZ1. It’s in the music of their wire-pulled-tight post-punk, which has always been gripped with tension; and it’s in their lyrics, whether they’re trying to avoid the dull glow of phone addiction, dealing with social anxieties, or addressing national-scale scandals such as the Grenfell tower tragedy.

On Sea Song, that sickly discomfort is once again prominent: the track becomes increasingly suffocating with Brook to the fore, her refrain of “feel the rising tide” closing in around the listener as her violin cuts through the gravelly atmosphere.

“The track’s more meditative structure allowed us to look at themes that Covid 19 had brought to the surface, such as time, death, fear, distance from other humans, the loss of relationships and witnessing cycles within nature around viruses and pandemics” the band explain. “Though on the surface it’s relating to the sea and the beach, these can be associated with release and escape too.”

From the band: "Fame started a while ago when I (Alex) used to work in TV, and it's gone through quite a few iterations. It's about the culture that surrounds reality TV. The focus is on the superficial and illusion. It's pretty horrid. It portrays a misleading representation of reality that appears to have both adverse effects on the reality tv stars and those who follow them. It's fickle, enticing and dangerous for young people, and I personally don't think it's something to aspire to, so I wrote Fame."

Watch: Belishas Premiere New Single/Video "Whispers"

Bristol post-indie/post-pop band Belishas have released the video for their new single "Whispers".

Whispers is an intense, joyous statement of self improvement, liberation and rebirth. The song is a frenzied mix of happiness and cathartic anger. Recorded with Dom Mitchison (IDLES, SPECTRES) the harder, rawer production accentuates the lyrical topics whilst preserving the song's natural melodic jangle.
