Favourite Gig: Low Island

Low Island are one of those bands that sum up the feeling of late night driving. Fusing together electronic and acoustic waves to create a jangly yet emotive sounds, Low Island explore the beautiful side of loss. Named after a small rock in the Atlantic they are fans of Arthur Russell, Warpaint, Grizzly Bear and Caribou. Tonight in concert at Razzmatazz.

The muses of La Musa: Habibi

The Arabic word habibi means “my love,” an apt descriptor for Rahill Jamalifard’s feelings about her Iranian upbringing and the music she creates. Jamalifard is the frontwoman for Habibi, the Brooklyn-based band that mixes Detroit garage rock with girl group harmonies and surf guitar.

New York’s Habibi hypnotise on ‘Come My Habibi’, their new single, and give us the lowdown on their hot sauce-fuelled second album.

Ville à Dômat: Little Indies

 

Hit of the week: Gengahr ‘ Everything & More’

Following their previous single Everything & MoreGengahr have given us a second taste of their forthcoming third album, Sanctuary, set for release on January 31st via Liberator Music.

The newest tune from the North London four-piece has all the makings of a classic indie pop track, but with a dash of ‘Saturday Night Fever’. The danceable disco element makes for a chic throwback, and merges seamlessly with the acclaimed Gengahr sound.

Divus Julius presents: slenderbodies

Formed in 2016 by its two members, Ben Barsochinni and Aram “Max” Vehuni, slenderbodies is a musical and artistic project that came together in a particularly unusual way. Having met as college freshman at UC Santa Cruz, Ben and Max became friends and shared music throughout their time during school, The two worked together to shape and refine the tracks, and despite a distance of more than 300 miles separating Ben in Half Moon Bay and Max in Los Angeles, the two successfully finished and released their debut EP, ‘Sotto Voce’, and slenderbodies was born.

For those who are familiar with Glass Animals and Radiation City, you’ll find that slenderbodies’ identity falls somewhere between the two. Their signature sound combines airy falsetto vocals with masterfully delicate guitar riffs, set over present percussion and driving electronic beats. This year they’ve released their debut album  Komorebi.

Music by Bergman: Blood Red Shoes 

Blood Red Shoes are an alternative rock duo in Brighton, England consisting of Laura-Mary Carter and Steven Ansell.

Mortality, psychosis, neurosis, sex,  dreams, the future, alienation, failure, escape, mass celebration, hope. regret, taking things too far……..and Fleetwood Mac. Following the success of their fifth studio album, ‘Get Tragic’ released earlier in 2019, they will kick out in Mad Cool 2020.
