Watch: Wings of Desire Premiere New Single/Video "Chance Of A Lifetime"

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 "Chance Of A Lifetime".

The song "a statement of intent, a snap shot of a world in flux" is the lead track from their just released debut EP 'End Of An Age'. Get your copy here.

The EP is an uplifting look at human consciousness at a time when we’re all going through a period of mass-reflection. It embodies that 'sliding doors' feeling that our lives are just a series of predetermined events, and it’s up to us change direction. We are yearning for something deeper, wanting to jump off the conveyor belt of life and prepare ourselves for the uncomfortable truth that we’ve never truly known what it is to live." 

"We are not claiming to have the answer, but if we can inspire a conversation or spark the listeners imagination then we are one step closer to the realisation that there is much more to living than we can consider tangible."

Watch: The Lounge Society Unleash New Single/Video "Cain's Heresy"

Calder Valley based post punk/psych band The Lounge Society have unleashed the video for their excellent new single "Cain's Heresy".

The song is taken from their upcoming debut EP ‘Silk For The Starving’, produced by Dan Carey (Bat For Lashes, Fontaines D.C.), out on June 18th on through Speedy Wundergound. Pre-order it here.

"Cain’s Heresy" shakes with the propulsion of a nimble rhythm section, full of bite and scorn, simultaneously swinging angrily at a negligent political class ("The death of four souls is less than a kick in the teeth, for them"), the threat of misinformation ("Poisonous ideals on the screen breed a vicious way of thinking, off the screen") and the noxious follow-the-leader march of celebrity culture ("They’re servants to fame"). 

The EP title Silk For The Starving in itself probes at a society that routinely neglects the needs of the have-nots. The Lounge Society sing about what they know then. Make no mistake, this is the sound of young England: articulate, enraged and energised. And – perhaps crucially - highly danceable too. It should give hope to anyone who has lost faith in the future, because here the future is in safe hands.

Field Music Announce New LP 'Flat White Moon', Stream "No Pressure"

Sunderland, UK indie rock/art pop band Field Music have announced the release of their eighth studio album 'Flat White Moon'.

The follow-up to 2020's Making A New World, will be out released via Memphis Industries on April 23, featuring their latest song "Orion From The Street", and the new single "No Pressure". Pre-order your copy here.

"We want to make people feel good about things that we feel terrible about." says David Brewis, who has co-led the band Field Music with his brother Peter since 2004.

Sporadic sessions for the album began in late 2019 at the pair's studio in Sunderland, slotted between rehearsals and touring. The initial recordings pushed a looser performance aspect to the fore, inspired by some of their very first musical loves; Free, Fleetwood Mac, Led Zeppelin and The Beatles; old tapes and LPs pilfered from their parents' shelves. But a balance between performance and construction has always been an essential part of Field Music.

By March 2020, recording had already begun for most of the album's tracks and, with touring for Making A New World winding down, Peter and David were ready to plough on and finish the record.

The playfulness that’s evident in much of Flat White Moon's music became a way to offset the darkness and the sadness of many of the lyrics. Much of the album is plainly about loss and grief, and also about the guilt and isolation which comes with that.

About the new single  David Brewis says, “The song is like a mirror image of ‘Under Pressure’, but if that was about ‘people on the street’, this is mostly from the perspective of someone up on high insisting that nothing is his fault while the rest of us scratch around trying to hold things together.”

On Flat White Moon Field Music take on the challenge of representing negative emotions in a way that doesn't dilute or obscure them but which can still uplift. The result is a generous record of bounteous musical ideas, in many ways Field Music's most immediately gratifying to date.
