Stars – Fluorescent Light

28 Jul

This one sounds like classic Stars to me. These guys have consistently produced such wonderful records over the past decade or so. Looking forward to the new one.

Eleanor – All I Want

28 Jul

Loving Eleanor’s first track since the break up of Girl Friend. ‘All I Want’ is a bit like Kate Jackson from the Long Blondes getting a synth disco makeover.

Sabella – Fortress

28 Jul

Great to hear Sabella again. ‘Fortress’ has a perky pop feel much like Dagny’s handful of quality tracks.

The Mynabirds – Shouting At The Dark

28 Jul

Another taster from the upcoming Mynabirds album ‘Be Here Now’and it sounds like it’s been lifted from The Breakfast Club soundtrack. The visuals are more Jane Fonda than John Hughes but we love this twist in the direction Laura is taking.

Nakita – In The Water

28 Jul

Fabulous new bop from this New Zealander. ‘In The Water’ has the smoothness of Ralph’s superior EP with some Zara Larsson sass.

The Harpoons – Do You Want My Love

27 Jul

Loved these guys for a while and they have some delivered some sublime Antipodean indie electro funk a la Nite Jewel on their new tune ‘Do You Want My Love’. Get down.

 

Dinner – Un-American Woman

27 Jul

Dinner’s voice has always been a bit Marmite but I totally love his work. Super excited to hear he’s collaborated with Charlie Hilton on his forthcoming album ‘New Work’ which is due to arrive on 8 September. Here’s the new single.

Crystal Bats with Whinnie Williams – Killing Me

27 Jul

Long time supporters of Whinnie and so it’s wonderful to hear her on a new track. We have also mentioned Crystal Bats before so this is a heavenly match up. ‘Killing Me’ is a bit Sheena Easton when she was working with Prince meets Jessie Ware meets Human League’s ‘Human’. It’s gorgeous.

Arcade Fire – Everything Now

27 Jul

I’m late on this (but just in time for the album being released tomorrow)! Here’s the Abba meets Talking Heads sound of the title track from Arcade Fire’s new album. Looking forward to hearing the whole thing tomorrow.

Novelties – Potions

27 Jul

You know we love these ladies here at T&D. There’s a day-glo/neon drenched video for ‘Potions’ and it makes us want to live inside Novelties’ electric daydreams.
