LA darlings Grouplove are back with a banger. “Remember That Night” is a soaring indie pop track that will instantly raise your spirits and is certain to get the crowd going at their performance at Reading & Leeds this weekend. Speaking on the track Christian Zucconi says, “We’ve been writing a lot of new music recently – Hannah in particular is starting to come into her own in a new and very honest way. She is really starting to show her fire. Hope you can feel it.”
The tracks we have on repeat rn.
Grouplove – “Remember That Night”
Marmozets – “Play”
Three years since their debut album The Weird And Wonderful Marmozets, Marmozets are finally back with their first official new track “Play”. Brilliantly in-your-face, the song shows the band at their best and you can (almost) forgive them for being away for so long…
Flyte – “Faithless”
With their highly anticipated debut album set to drop on Friday, Flyte have given us a glimpse at what wonders we can expect with new track “Faithless”, and if you’re not already in love with them you’re about to be. Speaking on the beautiful song the band say, “’Faithless’ is about painful romanticising of the past, and the mourning of what has come and gone. Brideshead Revisited (where the name Flyte is from) portrays this perfectly and ‘Faithless’ is based around themes from the book.”
Nothing But Thieves – “I’m Not Made By Design”
In the build up to their sophomore album Broken Machine dropping next month, Nothing But Thieves are giving us a taste of what to expect, releasing the raucous “I’m Not Made By Design”. With the video filmed live from their Brixton performance earlier this year, it’s an exciting look at what the band can do and proof that vocalist Conor Mason is not of this world. Prepare to be blown away.
George Glew – “Me And My Brother”
George Glew is a name you should start paying attention to. “Me And My Brother” is a stunning song, full of emotion and with vocals that will give you goosebumps. “The song is very self explanatory,” George explains. “It’s about my relationship with my brother and how despite the lack of seeing or speaking to each other we’re still there for one another. It also touches on my relationship with the rest of my family and my upbringing, despite everything that has happened throughout my life I wouldn’t change it.”
Wolf Alice – “Beautifully Unconventional”
It’s a given that Wolf Alice’s second album is gonna be amazing, but if you had any doubts, the group have released the third single “Beautifully Unconventional” and you can’t not love it. “I wrote it about one of my friends,” explains Ellie Rowsell. “My feelings towards her reminded me of the film Heathers, where everyone is a Heather and you find your other non-Heather… a ‘you can be my partner in crime’, sorta thing.”
Pale Waves – “Television Romance”
Manchester babes Pale Waves are back with yet another dazzling indie number. “Television Romance” is a shimmering, addictive anthem that you won’t be able to get out of your head for at least a few days. Not that you’ll want to anyway.
Mallrat – “Uninvited”
Okay, so we’re a bit late to the mark on this, but we don’t care because this track’s a banger. The coolest Aussie teen around, Mallrat (aka Grace Shaw) is wowing us yet again with her latest electro-pop perfection, “Uninvited”. The self-proclaimed “Hannah Montana of rap”, we are fully obsessed rn.
The Big Moon – “Pull The Other One”
As if we couldn’t love The Big Moon more, the Mercury Prize nominees have now dropped a video that combines two of our fave things: Sherlock-style hats and Marika Hackman. Taken from their debut album Love In The 4th Dimension, the London quartet are truly one of the most exciting acts around and we’re placing our Mercury bets on them.
King Krule – “Czech One”
Sometimes not releasing this list on Monday has its perks, because King Krule has just released his first new solo music in four years and my god it’s good. “Czech One” is a beautiful chilled out track, featuring hazy jazz keys and his hypnotising mumbles, and we can’t wait for more.
