Watch: Oscar Lang Unveils New Single/Video "Yeah!"

London-based indie/alternative artist Oscar Lang has unveiled the video for his latest single "Yeah!".

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.

Speaking about it, Oscar explains: “This track’s about trying to impress someone, but really just boring them instead. It reminds me of telling my girlfriend about all the weird little things I find interesting and her not really giving a shit haha (It’s actually my girlfriend’s favourite track). I wanted to capture 90s old-school break-beats, mixed with a little bit of rock to keep it fun and vibey.”

Watch: The Third Sound Air New Single/Video "Dissociation"

Berlin-based neo-psych/post-punk/new wave band The Third Sound (led by The Brian Jonestown Massacre guitarist Hákon Aðalsteinsson) have aired the video for their new single "Dissociation".

The song is taken from their upcoming fifth studio album 'First Light', which will be available on August 27th through Fuzz Club. Pre-order your copy here.

‘Dissociation’ sees The Third Sound deal in a gothic-psychedelic post-punk sound that recalls the likes of Echo & The Bunnymen, The Chameleons and Sisters of Mercy. Talking about the track, Hakon said: “Dissociation is a song about the blurred lines between an altered state of mind and reality that seems to somehow follow your experience even more closely than it should. Leaving you feeling drawn to it and detached at the same time, only being able to see things from a distance.”

New Entry: Planet Return With New Single "Resign"

Sydney indie rock/pop band Planet have unveiled their new single "Resign".

The song, co-produced by the band’s frontman Matty Took and guitarist Tom Peppitt, is out today (August 11), get it here.

Speaking about it, Took says: “Resign is a pop summer anthem with the instrumentation hitting you straight in the face. Lyrically it’s about not being enough in someone’s eyes, and it affects you to the point of collapse but trying to break past it to make it work.”

Peppitt adds: “It’s the first track we’ve released that was written completely in lockdown. I had the chorus laying in the vault and sent it back and forth with Matty, fleshing it out and finishing it off. It was an obvious first single choice for us, doesn’t stray too far from our sound and is super upbeat and catchy.”
