The Killers – Caution

Las Vegas indie rock n roll icons The Killers have released the first teaser from forthcoming LP, Imploding the Mirage – this time in the form of Caution.

Described by NME as “a propulsive charge for the synth-rock horizon,” the legendary performers have always kept their sound fresh with new directions and if Caution is anything to go by, they will once again rip up the rule book with Imploding the Mirage.

The Slow Readers Club – Killing Me

Killing Me is the final single to be released from The Slow Readers Club’s new record, The Joy Of The Return (out 20th March). Vocalist Aaron Starkie says “it is about being controlled by a ruling class, and how we’ve designed a system of living for ourselves that’s a kind of prison, emotionally and spiritually.”

Following the release of Jericho and All I Hear, The Joy Of The Return is certainly an album that will be looked back on when collating AOTY 2020 lists.

Tom Misch and Yussef Dayes – Lift Off

Ahead of their collaborative LP, What Kinda Music, Tom Misch and Yussef Dayes have dropped the “funk infused” Lift Off. The duo bounce off one another across the five minute track that showcases the mastery formed between their styles.

Incorporating “sleek electronica, progressive jazz, vintage hip hop and so much more” (Respect Mag), Misch and Dayes have created a truly magnificent sound that we can’t wait to hear more of.

The Districts – You Know I’m Not Going Anywhere

The Districts are back with their fourth LP, You Know I’m Not Going Anywhere – “an atmospheric record formed around the theme of escapism.” Packed with mesmerizing melodies and distanced vocals – as showcased on the Radio 6 championed Hey Jo, the record as a whole is a majestic, uplifting effort with a clear sight of where the Pennsylvania band are heading next.

Seafret – Most Of Us Are Strangers

Four years since the release of their debut album, Tell Me It’s Real, Seafret are back with the enigmatic Most Of Us Are Strangers. Drawing comparisons to folk-indie favourites Kodaline and Vance Joy, the Bridlington duo veer away from their similar sounding counterparts and put their own unique stamp on their sophomore record – for example, in Be My Queen where their a new jazz-laden angle is flirted with.
