Hit of the week: Alien Tango ’Heavenly’

Packed full of raw passion and talent, the whimsical bedroom pop sweetheart Alberto Garcia (AKA Alien Tango) is one to watch out for in 2020. Raised in Murica, Spain and currently based in London, Alien Tango brings you some of the grooviest and tantalising DIY tunes.

Influenced by the likes of Foxygen, MGMT, Hinds, Alien Tango is just about one of the wildest and most mischievous oddballs in the DIY music scene. His latest single ’Heavenly’ is pure bliss.

Hit of the week: Loose Fit ‘Black Water’

Loose Fit are part of Sydney’s underground music scene, a confederacy of nutters, vagabonds, and wayward souls. Leaning towards post-punk in their skewed indie rock sound, the band’s precocious live shows have caused real hype in both hemispheres.

Fat Cat Records will release the group’s self-titled debut EP, and it’s set to land on April 3rd. Driven forward by Anna Langdon’s charismatic vocals, her unrelenting focus provides fresh intensity for Loose Fit‘s guitar squall. New single ‘Black Water’ deals with inner anxieties,

Hit of the week: PVA “Divine Intervention”

The London trio PVA brings together musicians Ella Harris, Josh Baxter, and Louis Satchell in service of danceable art-school pop music combining bits of disco, house, synthpop, new wave, dance-punk, et al. Their latest jam, “Divine Intervention,” is arriving via super-producer Dan Carey’s ever-reliable Speedy Wunderground label (which previously brought us Black Midi, Squid, and Black Country, New Road among others) with production by Carey himself. According to label co-runner Pierre Hall, “It reminds me of Patti Smith fronting Factory Floor,” which is pretty spot-on. The wheel is not being reinvented here, but man is it spinning. Listen below.

Hit of the week: Deradoorian “Saturnine Night”

It’s been eight years since Angel Deradoorian abandoned her stint with Dirty Projectors to pursue a solo career. Since, she’s made several guest appearances for artists like Flying Lotus, Brandon Flowers and Rostam (who, little-known fact, was also a member of the Projectors alongside Ezra Koenig way back in the day). Tuesday, Deradoorian announced her first full-length since signing to ANTI-, Find the Sun, the follow-up to her 2015 album The Expanding Flower Plant. The record is set for release on May 22.

Hit of the week: Jarv Is “House Music All Night Long”

After releasing “Must I Evolve,” last May, Jarv Is, fronted by former Pulp leader Jarvis Cocker, has just released a new single, “House Music All Night Long.”

Unlike the moodier sound of “Must I Evolve,” “House Music All Night Long” is much more playful and will get you instantly dancing around your living room… or wherever you plan to listen to it. This is the latest single off the Jarv Is’ upcoming album, Beyond the Pale, which is due out on May 1.

Hit of the week: The Strokes ‘Bad Decisions’

The return of indie legends The Strokes continues to gather pace ahead of their upcoming new album The New Abnormal with the release of new track ‘Bad Decisions’.‘Bad Decisions’ feels like a return to The Strokes’ original sound following on from the Voidz-y first cut ‘At The Door’. It’s a song that has rock and roll credentials as it plays with the melody of Billy Idol’s ‘Dancing With Myself’. Idol and Tony James even pick up writing credits on the track which will feature on the upcoming new Rick Rubin produced record, The New Abnormal.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5fbZTnZDvPA&feature=emb_logo

Hit of the week: Glass Animals ‘Your Love (Déjà Vu)’

British quartet Glass Animals definitely had tensions running high since the end of last year when they began releasing new material in the form of Tokyo Drifting, and they prove that they’ve got much more gas in their tank as they share yet another banger with Your Love (Déjà Vu). Oozing with charm and covert sensuality, it’s a passionate and heart-pumping track that blends ardent electronics with sly bass-lines that tantalise and tease. The single hints at what we can expect from the band in their coming third studio album, the details of which are being highly anticipated.
