▼ Underwater Boys - 'Everyone You Know' ▼

Made up of brothers Tom & Nick Klar, the pair released single ‘Everyone You Know’ back in October – pairing it with the hip-swinging ‘Lies’ a month later. The former wears their influences, like The Cocteau Twins and The Cure on their sleeves – but weave in Unknown Mortal Orchestra-like vocals and groovy Tame Impala riffs.

Most remarkable about the pair’s initial offerings is the frankness and honesty that burrow into the lyrics of ‘Everyone You Know’ – which were written about anxiety and internal battles. Few have managed to address the subject, but offer a optimistic take on bettering yourself on your own terms. NME

▼ Rhye - 'Song For You' ▼

In the wake of the recent announcement of their forthcoming album Blood, LA alt-R&B duo Rhye have shared a new single. Titled “Song For You,” the track follows singles “Taste,” “Please,” and “Count To Five” and takes their indie-adult-contemporary edge into something slightly jazz-inspired, with shimmering Rhodes tones and warm, reverb-slathered guitars.

▼IDLES - MOTHER▼

Idles has its roots in the Batcave club night in Bristol, ran by singer Joe Talbot and bassist Adam Devonshire, who met while at college in Exeter, eventually deciding to start a band. According to Talbot, "It took us a long time to get productive because we didn’t know what the fuck we were doing at all, we were fucking terrible for a long time." The band's first release was the Welcome EP in 2012. By 2014 the band comprised Talbot, Devonshire, guitarists Mark Bowen and Lee Kiernan, and drummer Jon Beavis. They released a second EP, Meat, and Meta, an EP of remixes, in 2015, and then started writing songs for their debut album. (Wiki)

▼Oh Sees - Dead Energy▼

Like any good band with two drummers, Oh Sees have them front and centre, the synchronised abuse of these two drum kits is nothing short of mesmerising. Stomping grooves and complex fills are played with a kind of precise aggression that’s difficult to turn away from, as vocals/guitarist Dwyer shreds, spits and screams only feet away. See them livE!

Video was edited from Shin'ya Tsukamotos 1989 horror, Sci-Fi movie masterpiece 'Tetsuo Iron Man'. 'A businessman accidentally kills The Metal Fetishist, who gets his revenge by slowly turning the man into a grotesque hybrid of flesh and rusty metal.'
