deep tan – beginners’ krav maga

There is much to take from deep tan’s first single of 2022. A feel of some of those classic punk tracks that in actuality were pretty perfect pop songs, a well fitting juxtaposition of spiky riffs with smooth vocals, and an opportune use of music with a message for starters.

In beginners’ krav maga, the band continue to show why they remain firmly at the top of numerous publications’ breakthrough artists lists. At just 2 minutes 38 the track is concise, crisp and catchy; the message behind it no less serious as a consequence.

The band say, “beginners’ krav maga is a response to the idea that womxn should take self defense classes in order to feel safe on the street at night. womxn shouldn’t have to. yet it seems like every day there’s a new sarah everard, sabina nessa or aisling murphy. educate your sons, brothers, guy friends. male violence against womxn is an epidemic and it needs to stop, so we made a pop song to talk about it.”

beginners’ krav maga is out now, details of tour dates and ticket links here.

Peaness – How I’m Feeling 

Good to hear new music from Chester trio PEANESS as they build interest for their long-anticipated debut album. World Full Of Worry is due for release on 6th May through the band’s own label, Totally Snick Records. In the meantime, How I’m Feeling sets the scene for a long player filled with their distinctive brand of sugar coated indie-pop sure to please long time fans and grab some new ones too.

Peaness say, “In an unfulfilling job? Need a shake up with something in your life or you’ll go mad? Well, that’s How I’m Feeling and it can’t be ignored anymore! Amongst self loathing and melancholy there are sparks of determination and a belief that you deserve more. I hope it works out.”

How I’m feeling is out now with album pre-order on this link. Peaness have also shared details of tour dates here.
