Our Girl’s “In My Head” gets a haunting remix from Dream Wife’s Alice Go

OUR GIRL

Stranger Today, the debut LP by Brighton band Our Girl, is officially our favorite record of 2018 that we failed to discover until 2019. The band, led by songwriter and brilliant guitarist Soph Nathan (also of The Big Moon), was relatively slept on here in the States, but received tons of acclaim in the UK for conjuring a blistering union of shoegaze, grunge, and psychedelic indie rock that added up to one of the best guitar records in recent memory...

video premiere: Splash Addict – Big Talk

Screen Shot 2019-04-11 at 8.24.46 AM

UK duo Susie Green + Simon Bayliss aka Splash Addict share the self-directed video for their new single, out today on Zoee's label/"empowered pop platform" Insecure. The duo makes dreamy, romantic club music that they aptly describe as "SENSUAL VOCAL BANGERS", and the new track features Green's deadpan, oddly moving spoken word about the dreaded "Big Talk", her calmly urgent pleas becoming hypnotic and almost mantra-like when paired with the track's alternately twinkling and aqueous production, resulting in a highly emotional dance anthem that will appeal to fans of peak PC Music and '90s rave culture...

video premiere: Penelope Trappes – CONNECTOR

PENELOPE TRAPPES CONNECTOR

We're psyched to premiere the visuals for "Connector", the darkly mesmeric new single from Penelope Trappes' forthcoming album Penelope Two, due next week on Fabric's Houndstooth label. In tandem, the song and its striking accompanying visuals -- which were directed by Penelope with Agnes Haus, and are intended to be an "isolating and direct personification of Penelope's search to bring light into the dark and emotional period of her own life" -- elicit a hauntingly spectral Under the Skin vibe, with harrowing but hopeful themes of rebirth/renewal, beautifully blurring the lines between eerie conjuring and meditative lullaby...

Rina Mushonga 4qrtrs

Dutch-Zimbabwean artist Rina Mushonga graces us with the premiere of her new video for her infectiously bright and exhilarating Afro-electro-pop club jam "4qrtrs". Mushonga says that the Gugi van der Velden-directed video is "is comprised mainly of 'home-made' self shot footage in Zimbabwe" -- shot mostly on her iPhone and a cheap handheld camcorder -- "combined with vibrant graphic animation"...
