Introducing…Special Interest

Special Interest is a four piece punk band emerging from New Orleans, Louisiana. Combining elements of No-Wave, Glam, and Industrial Special Interest create a frenetic and urgent revisioning of punk and electronic music for a modern world gone mad. Propulsive drum machines, a swirling layer of detuned samples, and a driving bass line create the foundation across which angular guitar work and dissonant synth lines glide. Front and center are Alli Logout’s commanding vocals and razor sharp lyrics moving from high camp satire to insightful political imperatives often within the course of one song.

Special Interest have returned with a new single, ‘(Herman’s) House’, their first for Rough Trade Records. It comes with a video directed by Special Interest and Juicebox Burton alongside vocalist Alli Logout.


Introducing…BETWEEN FRIENDS

BETWEEN FRIENDS is the latest endeavor of brother/sister duo Brandon and Savannah Hudson, along with drummer Brennan Benko. All three musicians were formerly members of indie-pop band The Heirs, 

Growing up in the famed epicentre of creativity Laurel Canyon, there’s an expectation for BETWEEN FRIENDS’ sound to emit the woozy 70s rock atmosphere synonymous with the area’s golden age. But, the sibling duo, comprised of Brandon and Savannah Hudson, never conforms to the expected. Instead, they rebel with a strict emphasis on modernity through the artificial synth and drum machine that litters their hazy brand of bedroom-pop.

Between Friends have shared their new single laurel’. It’s a cut from the alt-pop duo’s upcoming ‘cutie’ EP, set for release on 10th June via 10K Projects.

Introducing…Bob Vylan

London duo Bob Vylan combine grime rapping and electrifying punk guitar to create visceral music that’s loud, brash and unflinching, especially when it comes to the message behind it. Formed in 2017, singer Bobby Vylan and drummer Bobbie Vylan played their first show two weeks after meeting. Bob Vylan’s music tackles social and political issues, including racism and income inequality head-on. The lyrics are plain and direct. 

Now, after years of having their cutting messages ignored by the wider industry, Bob Vylan are more than content to forge their own path with the release of their second album, 

Introducing… Layten Kramer
