Check Out Shapeshifting From Human Interest

London based dup Human Interest really came on to my radar with a force late last year with the release of their stunning EP Empathy Lives in Outer Space. Of course I’ll give a band my full attention once they’ve got a hold of me so I of course immediately had to click play on this new track “Shapeshifting” after receiving it this morning. I dig how the track sort of lulls you in for the first 20-30 seconds of mellow atmosphere, but then blasts off with some driving indie pop with absolutely stellar vocal harmonies. Could they make it 2 for 2 on year end lists? Probably.

This track is part of a new EP entitled Smile While You’re Losing which is due out on September 6th via Nice Swan Records.

Lip Filler Return With followup

London based group Lip Filler came onto my radar last year with the release of their self-titled EP which featured top song of 2023 “Monster Truck.” This year the band will power in to 2024 with more new music along with some planned summer dates in London, Manchester, and Bristol. Their latest effort, “followup”, is a pure stunner of a single with an electronic, dance theme paired with a killer guitar riff and energetic vocals. I am here for all of this.

Lip Filler will release this song as part of a new EP entitled witchescrew. That’s due out on May 26th via Chess Club Records.

Return Flights Drop Newcomer Single

Really been looking to dive more into the electronic pop craft this year, which is how I stumbled upon London’s Return Flights. They spend the first minute or so of their latest single driving the beat, waiting for the song to open up and twist into some indie-disco shuffler. Smoky vocals ride atop the groove for a few moments, then that shuffle kicks in, and you find yourself spinning in the happiest, dizziest circle. Layered vocals work to perfection, building both the texture and the hooks that will likely find folks making some New Order comparisons. Never a bad thing in our book here.

Talk Show Drop Red/White

After a slow burn with a few singles over a couple of years, London based Talk Show really started to make a lot of noise this past year with multiple, straight slamming new singles. As we drive into the new year, the band is full steam ahead with a new album called Effigy due out on February, which is quickly becoming one of my favorites of the short new year. As anticipation builds for the full length, you should take some time to check out the latest new slammer called “Red/White” below. Get after it lads. If you’re in a giving mood, Talk Show are trying to raise a little money to make it stateside for SXSW in March. You can find their donation page over on IG.

Talk Show’s new album Effigy is available on February 16th via Missing Piece Records. Pre-orders are live now.

Chemtrails Say Join Our Death Cult

London outfit Chemtrails have opted to leave the lo-fi production work of their early recordings in order to enhance the vibe on their new LP, The Joy of Sects. Their latest single definitely wears a bit of that studio perfection; you can hear it in the way the vocals get get intertwined perfectly creating this little hook that has your head spinning. But, the band still are driving this thumping psychedelia, often times brooding and other moments sputtering into a smashing bash of joy. When it all subsides, there’s this great bit of buzz trailing behind, locking in the band’s ability to hit all sorts of rock n’ roll notes. The Joy of Sects is out via PNK SLM on January 19th.

Talk Show Share New Single and Video

London’s finest new band Talk Show really came on my radar around this time last year with the release of their Touch the Ground EP featuring hit single “Cold House.” After a few singles released over the last year, the band has now just announced a release date of February 16th for their debut LP entitled Effigy. It features the previously heard jam “Closer,” and this brand new joint “Gold” which dropped late last week. You can certainly hear some 90s electro-rock inspiration in these tunes combined with a tense post-punk energy from leading man Harrison Swann.

Pre-orders are now live for Effigy via UK label Missing Pieces.

Human Interest Share All My Friends

London based outfit Human Interest just dropped this new tune called “All My Friends” and it felt like a solid tune for a Thursday mid morning. It has sort of a boozy, slacker rock style vibe to it that feels like American meets UK indie rock. It’s a foot stomper and a steady groover. Check it out with accompanying video below.

This track is part of a new EP entitled Empathy Lives in Outer Space due out on November 24th via Nice Swan Records.

Another Sky Return with Uh Oh!

London based group Another Sky hit my radar back in 2019 with a couple of stellar SXSW performances along with some singles that same year. Since then, the band fell mostly silent, but have returned with a fury this year having dropped three new singles since the start of the year (links for those here, here, and here). Not planning to slow down with their return, a fourth single came available today called “Uh Oh!” and is available to stream below or on all platforms. I think the song title works perfectly for the track as is doesn’t fool around from the get go and drives through two quick minutes of “Uh Ohs” and fun. One would expect the announcement of a new album soon so stay tuned.

Check Out Burn From RAINSONG

Sometimes the shoegaze label can be a bit much, or even over used with current indie tunes, but London based RAINSONG seem to perfectly fit into the genre. Seriously, after checking out this new single “Burn” you will surely agree that the band is progressing the sound and offering a ton of energy and freshness to the sound. And hot damn, those drums will kick you in the ass for sure. Hit it below and follow RAINSONG via socials.
