Warhaus – the solo project of Balthazar’s Maarten Devoldere – announce a brand new track ‘Love’s A Stranger’ out now on Play It Again Sam.
For the video Warhaus collaborated with Belgium film director and writer Wouter Bouvijn, who accompanied the band on a week long tour of France to gain background and B-roll footage. To the bands surprise the black and white video was cut from this on the road and live footage.
After sharing a teaser last week, Arcade Fire have released their new video for Signs of Life. Directed by digital artists Jillian Mayer and Lucas Leyva, the visual follows two special agents on a day of cultural activities.
During their journey, they discover signs that lead them to the discovery of an elixir at a strange laboratory in a swamp. Later, they are led to an encounter with an old foe – who is defeated – and the clip ends with one of the agents cradling a hen. It’s romantic, thrilling, mysterious and slightly trippy all at once.
The track is from the band’s forthcoming album Everything Now, which is set to land on 28 July. So far, the two singles Everything Now and Creature Comfort have been released. Watch the video in the player above.
The track is the first single to be taken from their second album, Visions Of A Life, which is set for release on 29 September this year. It follows their 2015 debut, My Love Is Cool. Meanwhile, the rockers have announced headline US, European and UK tour dates,
Arcade Fire have announced their fifth album Everything Now will be released next month on Columbia. You can now hear the official stream of the title track after the band’s surprise released it on 12″ at Primavera Festival this week.

Everything Now is out July 28.
London band Oh Wonder have unleashed their brand new video alongside news on their upcoming album Ultralife. ‘Heavy’ launches with a fascinating new video, recorded on set in London with photographer Josh Shinner. The video painstakingly stitches together 2665 individual photographs to create the allusion of the British duo dancing within a makeshift colour cube.. Their new album of the same name will be out on 16th June via Island Records!
Flume has once again teamed up with Kucka for a new bonus track called ‘Hyperreal’. The new track was to be an exclusive addition to the vinyl release of Skin Companion EP II, but Flume decided to make it available in digital form as well.
It’s a thumping, glitchy club track packed with bass and off kilter syncopation. Flume has woven explosions, claps, distortion and kick drums together with Kucka’s soprano to create an unnerving, deep dark beast.
