Manic Street Preachers Air Music Video For "Complicated Illusions"

Welsh rock trio Manic Street Preachers have aired the video for their newest single "Complicated Illusions". 

The song is part of our current playlist and is taken from their 14th studio album 'The Ultra Vivid Lament', which came out last month (3rd September) via Columbia/Sony. Grab your copy here.

Complicated Illusions is described by the band as “The battle between chaos and calm with a gliding majestic lyrical flow – leaning towards’ More Than This’ era-Roxy - Bowie’s Lodger - peak pop Echo & the Bunnymen.”

Film maker Kieran described the footage to compliment the song - “I’ve always felt the track feels like an epic soundtrack to an as yet made film so I’ve gone for a visual/lyric type affair using a similar aesthetic / approach to a lot of Netflix type title sequences using minimal / small type over multi-layered imagery.”

New Entry: Alternative Milks Unleash New Single "Shops"

Bristol alt-rock quartet Alternative Milks have unleashed their new single "Shops".

From what started as DIY bedroom demos from frontman Mike Jordan, the sound has now developed and grown into what it is today, still maintaining the same lo-fi quality. Jangly ratty guitar, melancholic lyrics and a beat that just won’t quit; they’re sure to satisfy your sonic receivers.
“Have you been to the shops lately? Have you seen all the people in line? This track asks many questions that all come from confusion and frustration of what has become the norm in our society. This song is born out of feeling like an outsider, questioning why we do anything in life. Touching on consumerism, as well as our education system and living in a materialistic world.”

New Entry: Bandicoot Unveil New Single "Life Death and Other Things"

Swansea, Wales indie rock/alt band Bandicoot have unveiled their new single "Life Death and Other Things".

The song is taken from their forthcoming debut studio album 'Black After Dark', which will be available on March 4th through Libertino Records. Pre-order your copy here.

Taking its influence from Randy Newman, Bowie’s ‘Station to Station’ and Scott Walker, ‘Life Death and Other Things’ is yet another bold move from a band who are steadily building an envious back catalogue on their journey towards a remarkable debut album.

Vocalist Rhys Underdown explains the story of ‘Life, Death and Other Things’ creation: “Life, Death and Other Things is a song about songwriting. It captures the frustrations that come with compressing the whole world and all living experience into three minutes and a few words. It describes the surreality of waking up in unrecognisable nightmarish places, and the impossibility of really saying what you mean. It tries to bridge the overwhelming feeling of distance separating yourself from the world around you, an attempt to understand life, death, and everything in between”
