Liverpool indie pop/dream pop/jangle band SPINN have premiered the video for their newest single "BILLIE".
The song is part of our current playlist and is out now. Get it here.
Featuring a vocal contribution from Christie Simpson of Yumi Zouma, lead singer Johnny Quinn explains: “With social media there is a lot of pressure on us and our relationships to be ideal; but obviously neither of these things are perfect – that’s what Billie is about. It’s somebody who is reflecting on a relationship that’s ended and realising that it wasn’t perfect and nor are they. They’re coming to an understanding that no matter how hard we try, our lives don’t always work out the way we plan. There’s a good life lesson in there, somewhere.”
“I’ve been a fan of Yumi Zouma for a while, so I was made-up when Christie agreed to sing with me. We’ve only met once and I was really nervous as I’m such a big fan, but she was really great and chatty. I was blown away when I heard her sing ‘Billie’ in the studio and after a year of not touring, I was almost embarrassed to sing along with her – she blew me out the water!”
Texas-born, Switzerland-based indie rock/alt band Laddermen have unveiled the video for their newest single "The Huntress Obeyed".
The song is part of our current playlist and is taken from their debut studio album 'Special Kind of Violence', due out later this year.

Texas garage/psychedelic band Night Beats have aired the video for their new single "Ticket".
The song is taken from their upcoming fifth studio album 'Outlaw R&B' set to be released on 7th May via Fuzz Club. Buy it here.
Blackwell says of the album: “Outlaw R&B is music for the borderless, the free, the outcasts and the forgotten. The outlaw is the runner. Those whose minds aren't sold by perfect pitch and clean fingernails. Through this medium you can escape the confines of mental feudalism and bask in the euphoric glow of psychedelic R&B.” Where the last Night Beats LP was a distinctly polished and soulful affair, ‘Outlaw R&B’ sees the band return to their natural habitat: riotous, acid-fried rock’n’roll to lose your head to.

Borgholm/Gothenburg-based post-rock/psych/experimental duo Bolywool have unleashed their new single "Inertia".
The song is taken from their forthcoming upcoming EP 'Canada', which will be available on on March 26. Pre-order your copy here.
It’s been two years since the cousins Calle and Oskar released music together as Bolywool. They’ve both been busy with other musical projects but during last year they began sending files to each other again. In times of uncertainty they groped for something safely and wanted to make songs about that kind of security you felt as a child. The final result is as always a couple of songs about lost love and broken hearts. Between the pursuit of stability and total darkness you’ll find five songs that creates something beautiful. A distinct swarm of different pace, sound effects and echoes. Different clavier that lays like waves upon waves.

Of the song, Adam Boose's GSoP says, "Myk wrote this one. I think it was the last song written for the record. One of those chord progressions that just moves me, maybe our prettiest song yet. I was feeling heavy Banshees vibes, playing my drum kit with mallets and brushes. There are a couple synth tones we created in this song that I’m really proud of."
