Watch: NewDad Reveal New Single/Video "Ladybird"

Irish alt rock/slo-fi band NewDad have revealed the video for their new single "Ladybird".

The song is out today (October 26) via Fair Youth Records and is the first taste pf their forthcoming EP ‘Banshee’, produced John Congleton due out earlier next year. Get it here.

Ladybird was inspired by the Greta Gerwig’s film of the same name starring Saoirse Ronan. “I wrote the song after watching the film ‘Ladybird’, the chord progression reminded me of Dave Matthew’s song that’s played throughout the film so I initially named it after that, so ‘Ladybird’ was just a working title.” explains singer Julie.

“I then wrote the lyrics about the difficult part of relationships and the struggle we sometimes face when we’re away from someone and the fears and anxieties we have about what they’re doing or if they’re okay, I realised this coincided with the relationship between the mother and daughter in the film so the title ended up being pretty fitting. It’s about the give and takes in any relationship really and about the struggles of being away from someone you care about.”

Blushing Announce New LP 'Possessions', Stream "Blame (feat. Miki Berenyi)"

Austin, TX dream pop/shoegaze/bedroom pop band Blushing have announced the release of their new studio album 'Possessions'. 

The 12-track record, produced and mixed by Elliott Frazier (Ringo Deathstarr) will be out on February 18, 2022 via Kanine Records. Pre-order your copy here

'Possessions' serves as a 1990s transport, complete with charismatic vocals, dreamy guitar hooks and swirling bass lines, it is an album filled with dream pop intensity.

The album title “Possessions” is an observation of the frenetic time in which it was created. Blushing is a part of the modern dream pop and shoegaze community that has helped blushing create an album that all indie music lovers need to hear. Fans of Lush, Cocteau Twins, My Bloody Valentine, Ride, Slowdive won’t be able to resist this album. “Michelle Soto and Christina Carmona sing wistfully over a cascading atmosphere or expansive space created by themselves with help from their husbands Jake Soto and Noe Carmona”

New single "Blame", is an immersive reintroduction to Blushing’s heavy brand of dream pop and harnesses a veritable who’s who of established and upcoming shoegaze scenesters; most notably in the distinctive vocals of Miki Berenyi from Brit legends Lush and Piroshka. This testament to trans-atlantic mutual appreciation began when Blushing covered “Out Of Control” for a Lush tribute album in 2018, catching the ear of Berenyi, who tweeted her appreciation, and a friendship was born. As the tracking sessions for Possessions took place throughout 2020, the band approached Berenyi about the possibility of her collaborating on a song and were thrilled to find that she shared their excitement to work together. The track and lyric sheet were digitally whisked off to London with the request that Berenyi add any vocals she would like. What she returned was a beautifully creative melding of harmonies and counter melodies that takes the original song into striking new territory.
