Divus Julius presents: PWNT

PWNT, the LA-based dream-pop project of Kosta Galanopoulos, has shared his new single, “Days in the Summer”, which will serve as the title track for his upcoming debut album, out June 25, 2021, via Acrophase Records.

Borrowing his moniker from the Miles Davis quote, “play what’s not there”, PWNT fuses together the worlds of 60s psychedelia, 90s Britpop, and the sounds of 2010-era acts such as Passion Pit and MGMT on his latest single.

Divus Julius presents: Hovvdy

Based in Austin, Texas, Hovvdy is the writing and recording project of Charlie Martin and Will Taylor. The duo, both primarily drummers, first met in the fall of 2004 and quickly bonded over a love for quiet music. Within a few weeks, they had combined songs and began recording their first EP in bedrooms and family homes across Texas.

Hovvdy has found a unique identity in rhythmic, down-tempo pop songs that are hopeful, yet melancholy; relatable, yet distinguishable. They have announced their new album True Love and shared a video for its title track. The LP is due out October 1 via Grand Jury. True Love is the band’s fourth album, following Heavy Lifter (2019), Cranberry (2018), and Taster (2017). They recorded it at co-producer Andrew Sarlo’s studio in Los Angeles in 2020.

Divus Julius presents: The Parrots

Five years on since the release of ‘Los Niños Sin Miedo’, Madrid’s The Parrots have announced that their brand new album ‘Dos’ will be arriving on 29th October, and they’re sharing the video for latest single ‘You Work All Day And Then You Die’ to celebrate.

 Dos was conceived by Diego Garcia (guitar, vocals) and Alex de Lucas (bass) as a chance to showcase wider ambitions. That desire to expand the band’s sound led them to working with producer Tom Furse from The Horrors.

Divus Julius presents: Moullinex

Moullinex is the alter ego of Portuguese producer, dj and multi-instrumentalist Luis Clara Gomes. After establishing himself as one of the leading artists in the disco scene, with several singles such as ‘Take My Pain Away’ and ‘Maniac’, and remixes of acts like Røyksopp, Cut Copy and Two Door Cinema Club, he released several albums such as ‘Hypersex’ in 2017, after two critically acclaimed albums, ‘Flora’ (2012) and ‘Elsewhere’ (2015).

 Moullinex has released this year his fourth studio album, titled ‘Requiem For Empathy’ which  includes collaborations with Sara Tavares, Selma Uamusse, Afonso Cabral, and singer GPU Panic, who has been instrumental in four different songs. 

Divus Julius presents : Jaws

When Jaws first burst onto the music scene, they did so under a spotlight keenly focused on bands emerging out of Birmingham. A few years on and a lot has changed: that initial burst of hype might have faded, but as they continue to play packed out shows across the country it’s clear that the energy and enthusiasm surrounding this West Midlands band is one thing that’s endured. 

Jaws have served up a treat by releasing the dreamy new single, ‘Untitled’. Jaws recorded the track when they made their third album, 2019’s The Ceiling, but didn’t make the final cut for one reason or another. It’s the first release from the group in almost two years and a timely reminder of their bewitching talent, which sounds as heavenly as ever on.
