Omni – Sincerely Yours

Set for the release of their album Networker with the mighty Sub Pop Records on 1st November, Atlanta’s Omni share new track Sincerely Yours. The album takes the familiarity of the band’s experimental post punk and adds softer harmonies, giving a fresh twist on their older work. To promote Networker, Omni will be bringing their tour to the UK in late November stopping off in Brighton, Bristol, Manchester, Glasgow, Leeds and London. Take a listen to Sincerely Yours here.



Drusila – Single Life

Giving the 80s a run for their synth-pop money, Portsmouth duo Drusila released their new track Single Life on Friday. The song takes a perhaps unexpected melancholic turn but retains the catchy electronic backbeat that has become their trademark; it’s an accomplished sound for a band so new. Drusila have been busy on the live circuit this year and proved to be a stand out act on the urban festival scene. Look out for more from the two piece in due course and listen to Single Life here.



Mermaidens – Millennia 

New Zealand trio Mermaidens bring new track Millennia to the table, full of dreamy vocals and indie pop hooks. The band’s Lily West describes the song as ‘A deadpan dig at the masks we wear. I wanted us to explore the mess of feelings around that twisted meeting of media and identity and how it can create such a warped sense of reality. There’s an implication that we can’t be successful without this system, despite it not being that much good for anybody.’ The album Look Me In The Eye is due for release via Flying Nun Records on 6th September and Mermaidens will be playing live dates in Margate, Oxford, Glasgow, Sheffield and London also in September. You can hear lead track Millennia here.
