Hit of The Week: Middle Kids ‘Questions’

Middle Kids return with potent new single ‘Questions’. The Aussie three-piece relocated to LA to focus on their new album, with ‘Today We’re The Greatest’ set to land on March 19th.

New single ‘Questions’ is a potent statement, one that emphasises their pop reflexes and the intelligent manner in which those influences are disseminated.

Music by Bergman: HAEVN

When singer-songwriter and film score composer combine, it’s magical – as shown by Amsterdam band HAEVN. Consisting of vocalist Marijn van der Meer and producer/instrumentalist Jorrit Kleijnen, the duo creates “cinematic, unctuous synthpop.” They established themselves with a series of singles beginning in 2015 before releasing their debut album ‘Eyes Closed’ in May.

For the production of their debut album in 2018 Eyes Closed HAEVN teamed up with the acclaimed producer behind London Grammar, Tim Bran. Few days ago they’ve unveiled their brand new single: ‘Throw Me a Line.’

4Ever Songs: Flash and the Pan “Waiting for a Train”

The best-known alter ego of the Harry Vanda/George Young songwriting team (the creative force behind (The Easybeats), Flash and the Pan began simply as a between-production project in 1976. By 1979, the project had turned out a novelty hit with the single “Hey St. Peter.”

However, “Waiting for a Train” is the ninth single by the Australian group Flash and the Pan. It is taken from the album Headlines and was their most successful single, reaching number seven on the UK Singles Chart in 1983.

The muses of La Musa: Laura Jane Grace

Laura Jane Grace is best known as the founder, lead singer, songwriter and guitarist of the punk rock band Against Me!. Since coming out as transgender in a 2012 interview with Rolling Stone magazine, she has become an outspoken advocate for transgender awareness.

Across the 14 songs that comprise Grace’s debut solo album, Stay Alive, she takes all her pent-up fears, anger, and anxiety and releases it, like an olive branch to the weary listeners who are feeling those exact same ways

Divus Julius presents: Frànçois & The Atlas Mountains

François Marry, the singer, songwriter and leader of Frànçois & the Atlas Mountains, likes travelling and so does his music. A lot of different influences can be heard in the songs that he has been creating since the early 2000s: the French ‘chanson’ tradition, African rhythms, oriental spices, sophisticated pop, avant-garde experimentations and funky grooves.

Born and raised in Saintes, on the West coast of France, François moved to Bristol in 2003 and stayed there for six years. While he was living in England, he started releasing his own music and became a touring member of Camera Obscura. He soon decided to form Frànçois & The Atlas Mountains and the band released their first album in 2006.

“Coucou” is the first new release from Frànçois & The Atlas Mountains since their 2017 album Solide Mirage.  Banane Bleue album will be released 26 February 2021.
