New releases – Goat, Modesty, Frauds, moa moa

Goat – Queen of the Underground 

Making masks a fashion statement way before the pandemic, Goat have long since stood out from the crowd with their unique blend of psychedelic dance music and performance. Their pending album, Headsoup, is due out on 27th August via Rocket Recordings, combining tracks from the band’s eclectic career and some brand new additions. Ahead of its release, Goat have shared new track Queen of the Underground, another fireball of a tune to keep the goat-herds from the door. Take a listen below; you can pre-order Headsoup here.



The Sound of Modesty – A Perfect Blue II

One from a pool of great Leeds based artists, The Sound of Modesty (aka singer-songwriter Yvonne Han) brings subtly edgy indie-pop to the table with new single A Perfect Blue II. Citing artists ranging from Bjork to T.a.T.u. as influences, her vocal is playfully operatic, giving the song a sense of emotion and purpose. Listen below.

Frauds – Ships

Recent Alcopop! signings Frauds have released Ships, the third excellent single from their upcoming album Long Spoons. Heavy riffs and a tongue in cheek smattering of humour make the track as ‘catchy, catchy, catchy’ as the nets they reference on the side of their fictional vessel. Look out for tour dates later in the year; the album will be coming your way on 1st October.



moa moa – Coltan Candy

Last but by no means least, we have the pleasure of another special release from the Speedy Wunderground camp. Joining an already impressive list of participants is London based alt-pop 5 piece outfit moa moa. The track, Coltan Candy, immediately catches your ear then takes it through an immersive multi-genre musical journey. The digital version is out now and, as always, there will be a limited 7″ run of 250 copies – release date for these is 10th September – enjoy.
