Watch: SPLLIT Drop New Single/Video "Heavy Headed Time"

Baton Rouge, Louisiana art punk/experimental band SPLLIT have dropped the video for their new single "Heavy Headed Time".

The song is taken from their forthcoming new album 'Spllit Sides', which will be available on July 30 through Feel It Records. Pre-order your copy here.

"Spllit Sides" slowly rises from a cacophony of tape splicing into clear and concrete Next Level Music. Like an acid tableaux vivant ~ a swirling sonic whirlwind of loose and odd time signatures come into play along with the occasional pop sensibility. Originality remains key in Spllit's formula, but let's establish some sonic kinship - maybe a Devolved, Deep South version of The Flying Lizards. Or a deep fried Eno sitting in with The Magic Band.

New Entry: Swim School Reveal New Single "outside"

Edinburgh-based indie rock/alt/indie pop band Swim School have revealed their new single "outside".

Singer Alice Johnson explains: “Outside is based on the negative impact the toxic people have on your mental health and the moment you realise how toxic they are. It’s not until you step back from the situation, that you realise their use of manipulation such as gas lighting and dishonestly was actually destroying your mental health. It made you question everything you did and slowly ate away at your confidence leading to you being unhappy.

It’s about the challenge of finding the strength to cut toxic people out of your life and putting yourself, your happiness and your mental state first. It’s also about realising that toxic people will never change and that is not your responsibility to change them.”

New Entry: Dumb Unveil New Single "Pizza Slice"

The song is taken from the upcoming 7 inch 'Pizza Punks', featuring Dumb and Vancouver punks Tough Age with "Giuseppe Pizzeria", set to arrive on July 9 via Mint Records. Pre-order your copy here.

Dumb serves up “Pizza Slice,” a piping hot pie of chopped chords drizzled with their secret sauce of jittery verse and tangy feedback that will melt your mozza and your face. Best served on a Saturday night with your best pals but also life saving the next morning when you wake up late and need something to get you moving!

Tough Age takes you out for a date night to a classy Italian place with checkered tablecloths and a candle stuck in an empty wine bottle. They serve up “Giuseppe Pizzeria” and it’s a refreshingly authentic taste of the band's time tested recipe of fresh jangle and creamy vocals, all served on a crisp and swaggering crust.

Watch: The Skinner Brothers Share New Single/Video "Iconic"

London indie rock/alt band The Skinner Brothers have released the video for their new single "Iconic".

The song is taken from their brand new EP 'Iconic', out today (May 7) through Blagger Records. Get your copy here.

‘Iconic’ finds The Skinner Brothers raising their game, tempering their boisterous bravado with an anthemic, larger-than-life hook, an unshackled, pulse-raising groove and a classic Britpop flavoured guitar solo. As you’d expect from that title, the band’s creative force Zac Skinner drops references to essential artists that have inspired him including The Doors, Ian Dury and Oasis.  

“‘Iconic’ sums up the last eight years for me,” says Zac. “It paints a picture of the monotony of London life, paired up with the aggression and desperation to make-it. I wrote it in the bedroom in my flat where I record and write everything. We sent it to America for mixing to get it sounding as big and heavy as possible. I’m buzzing man, who knows where it can take us.”
