A brilliant example of an artist making an iconic tune their own, Glass Animals’ Dave Bayley shared this haunted version of the Nirvana ballad as part of a series of Quarantine Covers. The looping music box tinkle takes the place of guitars, turning on an endless axis as Bayley sings the lyrics in a soft tone that evokes the cotton candy vibe of the Dreamland album that would follow.
Coming from the paradisiac island of Mallorca, come the alternative sounds of The Prussians. Coincidence of origins and influences of artists such as Glass Animals, The XX or Alt J, which results in a sound comparable to that of Half Moon Run, Foals or Balthazar. Bases with “Flow” mixed with an evocative voice, combining rhythms at the service of dance. Atmospheres pierced by rhythmic machinery accompanied by electronic touches that stimulate and evoke the intensity that characterizes this band.
Glass Animals has shared a new song called “It’s All So Incredibly Loud,” which will appear on the band’s forthcoming album, Dreamland.
The track, which is available now for digital download, is accompanied by a video starring frontman Dave Bayley as he stands on a diving board, contemplating whether or not to jump into the pool. “The entire song is only about three seconds of life,” Bayley explains. “I think most people have been in a position where they have had to tell someone something that they knew was going to devastate them. Something that would change their life.”
A Blaze of Feather is a British band from Cornwall. The band features guitarist Mickey Smith, aided by a six-piece that includes Nat Wason (formerly of Cornish band Haven).
A Blaze of Feather was initially a source of speculation since they cropped up alongside established names like Michael Kiwanuka and Glass Animals on the lineups for Citadel and Latitude – despite having no music to their name. Music fans on reddit have been trying to work out who was behind the project (and getting pretty damn close). It turns out that A Blaze of Feather is the new project from artist Mickey Smith and co: artists who were out on the road touring with Ben Howard (who is one of the six). Also involved are India Bourne, Nat Wason, Rich Thomas, and former Hiss Golden Messenger drummer Kyle Keegan.
After retuning with ‘Clock Hands’ earlier this month, his first release since 2017, A Blaze Of Feather has confirmed that his new album ‘Labyrinth’ will be released on 14th August and has just unveiled new cut ‘Magpie.’

Ville à Dômat: The Sweetest Taboo
British quartet Glass Animals definitely had tensions running high since the end of last year when they began releasing new material in the form of Tokyo Drifting, and they prove that they’ve got much more gas in their tank as they share yet another banger with Your Love (Déjà Vu). Oozing with charm and covert sensuality, it’s a passionate and heart-pumping track that blends ardent electronics with sly bass-lines that tantalise and tease. The single hints at what we can expect from the band in their coming third studio album, the details of which are being highly anticipated.
Formed in 2016 by its two members, Ben Barsochinni and Aram “Max” Vehuni, slenderbodies is a musical and artistic project that came together in a particularly unusual way. Having met as college freshman at UC Santa Cruz, Ben and Max became friends and shared music throughout their time during school, The two worked together to shape and refine the tracks, and despite a distance of more than 300 miles separating Ben in Half Moon Bay and Max in Los Angeles, the two successfully finished and released their debut EP, ‘Sotto Voce’, and slenderbodies was born.
For those who are familiar with Glass Animals and Radiation City, you’ll find that slenderbodies’ identity falls somewhere between the two. Their signature sound combines airy falsetto vocals with masterfully delicate guitar riffs, set over present percussion and driving electronic beats. This year they’ve released their debut album Komorebi.
