Hit of the week: The Rhythm Method ‘Chin Up’

Paying homage to the World Cup songs that have held their own against time, the London-duo’s latest single is an anthem crossing between New Order and Pet Shop Boys – a combination made for a winner, and that’s what this single does. With a light hearted comedic touch, ‘Chin Up’ successfully captures the nostalgic sing-a-longs, shout-a-longs and brings home the patriotism which seemingly peaks every four years.

Releasing the music video on the same day, the cut features members of Wolf Alice and Swim Deep, as well as capturing the heart of British culture, the love of Football.

Hit of the week: Wolf Alice ‘Beautifully Unconventional’

Wolf Alice have shared a third single as a follow up to predecessors ‘Yuk Foo’ and ‘Don’t Delete The Kisses’ from their forthcoming album ‘Visions Of A Life’.

The track stays true to its name and is definitely ‘Beautifully Unconventional’ for the London rockers. With its choppy guitars and strutting tune it falls somewhere in the middle of both ‘Yuk Foo’ and ‘Don’t Delete The Kisses’.

Music by Bergman: Fickle Friends

Fickle Friends are about to enter their second life. Two years on from dropping their debut track ‘Swim’ onto the internet, the band are signed to a major label, hitting up festivals and heading out to LA on a regular basis to record an album. Phase two is off to a flyer.

Born out of a love of Two Door Cinema Club and Phoenix, Natti Shiner, Chris Hall, Sam Morris, Harry Herrington and Jack Wilson started jamming together while at university in Brighton

Six months ago, however, the band were in dire straits. Their manager had quit; money was tight; and they were touring extensively in a banged-up Ford Galaxy. But after a rapid slew of upbeat singles and their breakout ‘Velvet’ EP, they bagged a recording contract with Polydor.

The band felt that there was no better way to start the new chapter than by re-releasing their deliciously catchy single ‘Swim’ – just “with a bit of help” this time. Natti describes their new single ‘Cry Baby’ as pop but with a “slightly mental indie feel” and with claustrophobic synths, scattered beats and a gigantic pop hook, she’s not wrong

They’re now working on their debut album with Mike Crossey (The 1975, Wolf Alice) in California and want to spearhead the alternative-pop renaissance, saying: “I think we just love pop music and we kind of just want to give it that cool, credible edge.” Their reincarnation may not signal a brave new direction, but the one they’re following is the pathway to pop perfection.
