New Entry: Soft Cell Unveil New Single "Heart Like Chernobyl"(

British synth pop/new wave duo Soft Cell (Marc Almond & Dave Ball)) have unveiled their new single "Heart Like Chernobyl".

The song is taken from their forthcoming album '*Happiness Not Included', their first in 20 years, set to be released on February 25 2022. Pre-order your copy here.

Heart Like Chernobyl finds vocalist Marc Almond the focus as he tackles politics, relationships and issues with the media as their trademark synth-pop soundscape takes more of a backseat. Producer/instrumentalist Dave Ball said:

"When I wrote the music to 'Heart Like Chernobyl' it was at the height of lockdown and I had been alone for about 6 weeks. I was feeling a bit Joy Division and recalled their track Isolation. I played, programmed and recorded the track digitally in my home studio - Kitchen Sink Drama. The track title was Marc's idea, as was the subject matter."

Watch: WOOZE Premiere New Single/Video "Mighty Cloud"

British/Korean indie pop/alt duo WOOZE have premiered their catchy new single "Mighty Cloud", alongside an accompanying music video.

The song is taken from the forthcoming new EP ’Get Me To A Nunnery’, set to be released on October 22 through Young Poet Records.. Get it here.

Speaking about it, they say, “The soul of the song came from Bergman’s ‘Fanny and Alexander’ and the tale that Uncle Isak tells about a young man travelling down an endless road. It’s an ode to dissatisfaction and inadequacy and the ways we, as people, seek to alleviate this. We wrote it over the course of a hot and steamy week in the summer in Theo’s bedroom in an attempt to alleviate our dissatisfaction and inadequacy, possibly coming from the fact we wilt in the heat.”
