“Cool’ is Colleen Green’s first record since 2015’s acclaimed ‘I Want To Grow Up,” and the lead single “I Wanna Be a Dog” sees Green celebrate the simplicity of a canine life and question why she’s still overcomplicating her own .
Colleen Green has always been cool, but on 2015’s “I Want To Grow Up,” she didn’t necessarily feel it. Too young to be free of insecurities but old enough to be sick of them running her life, Green was experiencing an existential crisis. Five years and a new album later, we find her parsing out what it means to be grown-up—and realizing that it’s actually pretty “Cool”.
Burnt out on bad feelings and ready to have fun with melodies and beats, Green enlisted producer Gordon Raphael (The Strokes) to take her songs to higher ground while keeping her lo-fi aesthetic intact.

The band consists of Casablancas (lead vocals) as well as Jeramy “Beardo” Gritter (guitar), Amir Yaghmai (guitar), Jacob “Jake” Bercovici (bass guitar, synthesizers), Alex Carapetis (drums, percussion), Jeff Kite (keys) and Shawn Everett (production). Both Kite and Carapetis were previously involved with Casablancas’ first foray into solo material, forming two of his ‘Sick Six’ live band, which also featured Danielle Haim. The band is signed to Casablancas’ record label, Cult. Their debut album Tyranny was released on September 23, 2014.
The Voidz have offered up brand new track ‘Alien Crime Lord’,
The return of indie legends The Strokes continues to gather pace ahead of their upcoming new album The New Abnormal with the release of new track ‘Bad Decisions’.‘Bad Decisions’ feels like a return to The Strokes’ original sound following on from the Voidz-y first cut ‘At The Door’. It’s a song that has rock and roll credentials as it plays with the melody of Billy Idol’s ‘Dancing With Myself’. Idol and Tony James even pick up writing credits on the track which will feature on the upcoming new Rick Rubin produced record, The New Abnormal.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5fbZTnZDvPA&feature=emb_logo

Formed in Liverpool in 2013, Circa Waves have captivated audiences for their melodic, propulsive rock sound, with comparisons The Strokes and the Vaccines.
Their latest album takes on new territory, as the band fuse the visceral thrill of rock music with a slick pop sound to cover themes of modern ennui, emotional fragility and all the inside-outs and upside-downs of relationships. Circa Waves have released their new album ‘What’s It Like Over There?‘
Julia Jacklin has officially released her dreamy cover of The Strokes hit ‘Someday’. Having originally recorded her version of the song for Triple J as part of their Like A Version series, Jacklin has released her slowed down studio version of the 2001 indie anthem.
The release comes as a break in touring for Jacklin who has just completed a run of sold-out headline shows in the UK and Europe earlier this year in support of her sophomore record, Crushing.
