After the release of the excellent tracks ‘Perla’ and ‘Foam’ last year, Glows begins his 2019 with the hazy new track ‘Passing Talk’.
Glows is the project of London-based producer GG Skips. The 21-year-old has spent the past few years running the promotions company Slow Dance and putting on early shows by artists such as Sorry, Goat Girl and Black Midi.
New track ‘Passing Talk’ however is a world away from his guitar-based beginnings, a track full of glitchy, meditative electronics.
London-based Sorry has spent 2017 slowly building its profile in the city, gigging constantly before heading home to work on their twisted rock songs. Unafraid to introduce abrasive electronic elements or riot grrl choruses to their early singles, the band sits alongside fellow new groups Goat Girl and Shame as an exciting raft of groups giving British indie kids something to get excited about.
The shouty south Londoners write songs about politics, perverts, and their insecurities, and reject the laddism of the indie scene. Shame formed when the five members were in their mid-teens and bumped along anonymously for a while, part of a nascent south London scene of bands drawn together through mutual friends that also included HMLTD, Goat Girl and Dead Pretties. Tonight they will present their debut album at Sidecar.
London buzz band Goat Girl have revealed the details of their self-titled debut album, out on April 6 via Rough Trade Records.
The four-piece guitar band follows the deep lineage of the much-talked-about “South London scene,” which has produced guitar bands like Fat White Family and more recently, Shame.
Along with previous singles “Country Sleaze” and “Cracker Drool,” the band have revealed a brand-new track, “The Man,” alongside its accompanying music video, which features a gender-swapped take on Beatlemania.
