RIOT Release Radar: #093

a RI-ku:
reparation time
history doesn’t vanish
royal PR, eh!

Viagra Boys // Ain’t No Thief
Surely one of *the* bands not to be missed this year. Viagra Boys have announced their new album Cave World alongside the frantic and deranged ‘Ain’t No Thief’.

Jockstrap // Concrete Over Water
Jockstrap somehow fuse picturesque balladry with thumping electronics time and time again, and ‘Concrete Over Water’ is more-than capable of living up to the high standards set by the duo’s previous singles.

Sorry // There’s So Many People That Want To Be Loved
Sorry have their very own rom-com moment in this dreamy little ditty. The band are embarking on a big fat UK tour soon, so best grab your tickets here.

Mosa Wild // I Might Let You Down
After touring with artists including Tame Impala and Maggie Rogers, Mosa Wild are teaming up with producer Ben Baptie (Rex Orange County, Little Simz) for their upcoming Zip Your Coat Up For English Weather EP. Jim Rubaduka’s buttery-smooth vocals are bolstered with some indie-rock velocity on ‘I Might Let You Down’.

Moreish Idols // Speedboat
The newest signing from the ever-reliable Speedy Wunderground. Cornish 5-piece Moreish Idols are going to be your favourite band soon, so best get on board early.

My Idea // Lily’s Phone
Everything released by Lily Konigsberg + Nate Amos to date has been endlessly charming and immediately lovable. Debut album CRY MFER is out today: put the kettle on and play it loud.

Flasher // Love Is Yours
Inspired by the highs and lows of a long-term relationship, ‘Love Is Yours’ is a winding and whirling 3 minute slice of head-bopping indie pop. Out now via the legendary Domino Records.

Naked Lungs // Why Do People Change?
Gilla Band’s Daniel Fox lends production duties to this uneasy piece of avant-punk from Ireland’s Naked Lungs – and we love everything about it.
