London pop quartet Weird Milk have returned with their jaunty new single, guaranteed to make you feel ‘Better’ no matter your worries. ‘Better’ takes form as the quirky band’s third single, following on from last year’s releases, ‘This Close and ‘All Night’. Having now fully established their sound, ‘Better’ maintains a slightly Ska-infused beat we first heard in ‘All Night’ and the summery vibes of ‘This Close’, creating a sunny concoction sure to leave you daydreaming of good old times on the surf board.
Off the back of just one single (and a lively, choreographed live show), it’s hard to believe the acclaim that’s been thrown behind Haiku Hands already. They’ve been dubbed as the “next big thing”
Jupiter is their second single and it’s arguably a more polished and refined sound in comparison to the synthy stabs of Not About You, with the ravey sounds of their debut left to just a smattering in favour of a more pop-centric sound. ‘Jupiter’ – the new track from Aussie trio Haiku Hands – is a superbly catchy, energetic shot in the arm.
Laura Marling gave us one of 2017’s best albums in Semper Femina, but already she’s back and prepping to release a follow-up. The forthcoming full-length is called LUMP and marks the first collaboration between Marling and Mike Lindsay, founding member of Tunng and Throws. Together, they go by the name LUMP.
Their debut LP was recorded in Lindsay’s London studio and has a June 1st release date through Dead Oceans. Lindsay handled the music while Marling was in charge of the lyrics and vocals. Per a press release, Marling’s contributions are described as “a bizarre but compelling narrative about the commodification of curated public personas, the mundane absurdity of individualism, and the lengths we go to escape our own meaninglessness.”
This week we are introducing…Bilk. Essex based working class Indie 3-piece Bilk released debut single ‘Give Up’ produced by Rich Turvey (Blossoms, The Coral) at Parr Street Studios, Liverpool a month ago.
Having all just turned 18 years of age Bilk write honest songs about the world they live in and the things they go through as teenagers living in modern suburban Britain. The band spent last year gigging extensively in Essex building a strong grassroots following, leading to their debut play on BBC Introducing at the end of 2017.
With influences ranging from The Jam, The Streets and Arctic Monkeys through to Eminem and Dizzee Rascal, Bilk are a young Indie band inspired by the authentic attitude and message in Hip Hop and Grime.
