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.

Hit of the week: Anteros ‘Fool Moon’

Anteros reveal their sparkling new track ‘Fool Moon’ and it’s concomitant video. With their debut album ‘When We Land’ spinning it’s way to all speakers and headphones on March 1st, 2019.

Flickering with electronic elements, this indie-pop track is a much needed breath-of-fresh-air to the end of 2018. The video is the third and final installment of their video trilogy following from the first, ‘Ordinary Girl’ and the second, ‘Call Your Mother’, which has been a unique visual journey co-directed  by Bella Howard and lead singer Laura Hayden.

Hit of the week: The 1975 “Love It If We Made It”

The 1975 have released some months ago a new single called “Love It If We Made It.” The lyrics, which were teased in a packet sent out to fans and the press, mention the late emo-rapper Lil Peep, quote President Trump, and conclude that “modernity has failed us/and I’d love it if we made it.” This treatise is all set to a heavy drum beat, with a much bigger scope than the deliberately tinny first single “Give Yourself a Try,” as Matty Healy howls his worldview. The song has been chosen as the best of the year according to Pitchfork.

 

Hit of the week: RY X ‘Yayaya’

With album ‘Unfurl’ set for release in February, Ry X has both shared a track from the record, and announced details of a massive London show. The power of quietly intense, passionate music to pull audiences in to an intimate space is something this Australia-born, LA-based singer excels at

Track ‘YaYaYa’ is the latest number to be aired from the record, which is out 15th February via Infectious. It follows the already-revealed ‘Untold’ and ‘Bound’.

Hit of the week: The Decemberists ‘Traveling On’

Veteran indie rockers The Decemberists returned earlier this year with their latest album, I’ll Be Your Girl, which saw the band pushing outside their comfort zone and experimenting with a new wave palette of sounds. Now, a few months after the album’s release, the band has announced the impending release of Traveling On, an EP featuring five tracks originally intended for inclusion on I’ll Be Your Girl.

Traveling On continues on the path that was laid by the band’s eight studio effort, with Colin Meloy and co. shifting their sonic influences in the direction of New Order and Roxy Music.
