The 1975 – “It’s Not Living (If It’s Not With You)”
“All I do is sit and think about you”…us too Matty. Another week, another anthem from the 1975 and another day crashing the Spotify app whilst frantically smashing repeat. The high energy love song ‘It’s Not Living (If It’s Not With You)’ drops in the lead up to their new album ‘Music For Cars’, set for release on 30th November (6 weeks exactly not that we’re counting).
Again…POISON ME DADDY?
Jonah Hill’s Mid90s Spotify Playlist
Jonah Hill’s directorial debut Mid90s – the story of a 13-year-old boy’s induction into the skating world over the course of a seminal summer holiday – has finally arrived in cinemas today. We’ve had the trailer’s soundtrack – scored by Hungarian rock band (and Kanye fave) Omega – on repeat since it dropped, which basically means feeling like the star of your very own coming-of-age movie 24/7. In line with its release this week, Hill posted a film playlist on Spotify and it’s as rich with 90s nostalgia as you’d expect, from Nirvana and Pixies to Tyler, The Creator and Joey Bada$$$. Dream on.
Ten Fé – “Won’t Happen”
Ben Moorhouse and Leo Duncan, aka Ten Fé, started out playing in various bands, busking on the London underground and writing in each other’s bedrooms, forming the gritty and highly personal sound that’s drawn comparison to the ‘Madchester’ scene of the late 80s and 90s. This week the London-based duo announced their sophomore album “Future Perfect, Present Tense” (due for release in March next year), and dropped “Won’t Happen”, a feel-good track that channels the optimistic outlook they preach.
Catch them at London Islington Assembly, where they’ll be performing new bits from the album on 15th November.
Connor – “Four Three Six”
If you didn’t know, Connor Schofield (of Birmingham band Jaws) is making serious waves with his new solo material. ‘Four Three Six’, the next track from his project ‘Connor’, was written around a year ago when he left home for the first time to move to London, and ruminates on the challenge of navigating a new city as an anxious person. With ambient synths and a moody, reflective feel, it’s one to soundtrack that rainy October commute.
Gus Dapperton – “World Class Cinema”
New York-born Brendan Rice, better known by his stage name Gus Dapperton, has moves. In his new video for ‘World Class Cinema’, Dapperton recreates a series of iconic movie scenes feat. a) some highly impressive shapes and b) ultimate bae, actor Charlie Plummer.
The singer, songwriter, instrumentalist and producer (yep) has released the track in the midst of his US and Canada autumn tour. Book your flights, people…
Krept & Konan feat. Tabitha – “Pour Me Another One”
Sweet Female Attitude’s ‘Flowers’ is an iconic track. Garage anthem circa 2000 (and tbh, life anthem ever since), it’s had no shortage of reworks and revivals over the past 20 years. Now South London duo Krept & Konan have sampled the track for their new song “Pour Me Another One”, featuring singer Tabitha. Mixing grime, R&B and hip-hop over a series of mixtapes, the pair have carved their own seat in the burgeoning UK rap scene, which they’ll perform for a sold-out crows at Ally Pally next week.
“I’m been thinking ’bout you all night long” sings Tabitha on the track, “I’mma keep on sipping til the feeling is gone, so pour me another one”… here’s to the weekend.
