Hit of the week: Foals ‘On The Luna’

Foals have an ambitious 2019 planned, with not one, but two new albums on the way, Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost Part 1 and Part 2. March 8th will bring us Part 1, which is being teased today with a new song called “On the Luna”.

The follow-up to January’s “Exits” single, it features bright, ’80s-style synths matched up with lively guitar riffs. The track also comes with a similarly fun music video comprised of concert footage and behind-the-scenes moments from Foals’ Everything Not Savedrecording sessions.

Hit of the week: FIDLAR ‘By Myself’

FIDLAR are back, and they’re not in the mood to take prisoners. The party-hard guitar quartet have released new album ‘Almost Free’ on January 25th. New single ‘By Myself’ is an anthemic return, with the distorted guitar lines wrapping themselves around a killer vocal melody.

 

Hit of the week: Barny Fletcher “Christ Flow”

There’s a new artist offering up fast-flowing intentionally-nonsensical lyrics over old school hip-hop beats. London-based Barny Fletcher is just 20 years old and though relatively new to rapping, he has already found himself signed to TAP, home of Dua Lipa and Lana Del Rey, with a whole lot of music industry eyes fixed firmly on his progress. Having first showcased his skills on the eccentric DOUGH at the tail end of last year, he just followed up with Christ Flow, the first single from his forthcoming debut mixtape.

Hit of the week: HÆLOS ‘Kyoto’

On May 10th, British trip-hop outfit HÆLOS are slated to drop their sophomore album, Any Random Kindness. Due out through Infectious, the follow-up to 2016’s Full Circlefinds Lotti Benardout, Arthur Delaney, and Dom Goldsmith “experimenting” with new songwriting approaches.

The 11-track collection was produced with Orlando Leopard at Baltic Studios in East London, then mixed by Matt Wiggins (Glass Animals) alongside Marta Salongi (Björk). Its themes touch on modern society and its ills, including our current political landscape, climate change, and technology.

To coincide with the LP news, HÆLOS have broken off “Kyoto” as the lead single. Check out the atmospheric offering below via its official music video.

Hit of the week: Foals ‘Exits’

Foals are gearing up to release two albums this year, with Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost Pt 1 out March 8. They’ve just shared cinematic and funky first single, “Exits,” as well as the video which stars Isaac Hempstead Wright (Bran on Game of Thrones) and Christa Théret.

They’ve also just announced a North American tour, which begins March 18 in Vancouver, and hits Portland, Seattle, Oakland, L.A., Las Vegas, NYC, Boston, Philly, Toronto and more.

Hit of the week: ABC Dialect ‘The Heat’

The Argentinian newcomers Abc Dialect are turning up ‘The Heat’ with a brand new video for 2018 single ‘The Heat.’

It’s a head-bopper, body-popper right to the core, driven by a frankly delicious bassline and beat that’s drenched in groove by the dozen, as splashes of keys and soft stabs of guitar wash over the track like a disco wave. It’s effortlessly cool, and arguably made even icier by the fresh stylee oozing from the new accompanying reel.

Juxtaposing shots of the duo chilling out with mates in front of picturesque backdrops or off bowling (yep, bowling is definitely still cool) with psych-infused mirrored clips of the lads instrumentally doing their thang, it’s a vid that shows exactly what Abc Dialect are all about. Unadulterated, undeniable London style.

Hit of the week: D’Angelo “Unshaken”

D’Angelo’s latest single “Unshaken” has been officially released. The song first appeared on the Red Dead Redemption 2 video game soundtrack.

D’Angelo’s last new music was the 2014 release of his album Black Messiah. Additional contributors to the Red Dead Redemption 2 soundtrack include Willie Nelson, Rhiannon Giddens, Josh Homme, Nas and Daniel Lanois.
