BullMoose: new favourite band

BullMoose, punkrock kiddies from Augusta GA, are your new favourite band today.

I fell for them when I heard ‘Deadbeat Millenial’ – a perfect, banging anthem for the enfranchised youth. These BullMooses have thoroughly checked their millennial privilege and are responding in the correct medium: sarcastic punk.

“Daddy’s money got me far but I’m prob’ly gonna die alone”

Loving frontwoman Marisa Williams’ hard-hitting vocals (and superb SCREAMING!). And guitarist Dave “Dave” Knight can shred like a motherfucker – the solo on this balances just perfectly on that edge between a brief flash of genius and bourgeois showmanship.

I’m off to explore the rest of their debut EP, ‘Hot Garbage’.

Foundlings: your new favourite band

Your new favourite band today is Brighton’s soon-to-be-indierock-superstars, Foundlings.

Earlier this month the band released a gorgeous (self-titled) 5-track EP on Scottish indie label, Last Night from Glasgow. It’s an enthusiastically jangly ride, with unpretentiously pretty vocals – FFO The Darling Buds, or more recent, Peaness.

Catch them live in in Brighton (19th April, Hope & Ruin), Liverpool (4th May, Sound City), London (27th June, Cavendish Arms) and 26th-28th July Indietracks festival in Derbyshire.

SATE: new favourite artist

Amazing. Toronto’s SATE has just dropped this stunningly, funking fierce video for her single ‘Dirty Little Lie’ and it’s our new anthem for everything.

Produced by Hill Kourkoutis, “Dirty Little Lie” oozes seduction, sex and sweat. It’s meant to make the audience dance, however, the lyrical content of the track is serious and focuses on tough subject matter.

“The track was inspired by the saturation of police brutality and race-related mass shootings in the media and the conversations that I was having with my friends who were not of colour,” SATE explains. “It’s not meant to be preachy, it’s meant to have the conversation, and to ask the question of why my pain and humanity has been fetishized or rationalized versus mattering in the same way.”

We’ll be keeping an eye out for more SATE news …

New favourite band: The Wild Things

Here’s your new favourite band: The Wild Things. You’re welcome.

They’re a London big-guitar big-voice four-piece, and listening to the storming banger ‘You’re Really Something’, the title single from their upcoming debut album, we suspect they’re going to do big and exciting things in 2019.

Rob Kendrick (guitar, vocals), who directed and edited the video says:

“The story of the song is so vivid that to copy it would detract from both pieces, so instead we chose to focus on a different kind of love story. We were toying with ideas when we found our amazing location, an old flat hidden in the centre of London that hadn’t been touched since the 70’s. The story came immediately – we wanted to tell the story of a girl in the 70’s and the battles in love that exist through time.” 

The vintage-inspired video was styled by The Wild Things front-woman and local-fashionista, Sydney Rae White, star of the hit Netflix/BBC show ‘Uncle’ & blockbuster movie ‘American Assassin’.

‘You’re Really Something’ is the second single from the upcoming 12-track album of the same name, which will be released on 23 November via AWAL. The album was recorded in the basement of a castle in West London, produced by the band’s very own Cam White (bass, vocals), and engineered / mixed by Adrian Hall at London’s Metropolis Studios.
