Arcade Fire // Unconditional I (Lookout Kid)
If, like us, your invite for Arcade Fire’s tiny Koko show this weekend got lost in the post, ‘Unconditional I (Lookout Kid)’ is the perfect soundtrack for some wallowing. AF’s new album WE is out next week.. so that’s something to look forward to.

Been Stellar // Kids 1995
Big coming-of-age energy from So Young Records’ newest signing. ‘Kids 1995’ is brimming with scuzzy NYC texture, combined with a sweet sprinkle of melancholy. We’re buzzing to catch Been Stellar when they tour the UK in May.

Sean Nicholas Savage // Shine
Sean stays consistent to his winning formula of nostalgia-drenched melodies that melt in your hands. ‘Shine’ is the title track from SNS’s new album, so keep an ear out as the campaign progresses.

Spang Sisters // Totally Feeling
Perfect as always from the Sisters of Spang. Sexy candlelit dinner bangers are back in, with Jules & Rachid leading the charge.

For Breakfast // Orfordness Lighthouse
We’re not sure where Orfordness is, but it sounds ominous. For Breakfast are a 7-piece who spin explorative post-rock anthems, pulling their songs into a thousand directions at once and creating a sound that is nothing short of otherwordly.. if that’s a word.

Bad Waitress // Spit It Out
Now for something completely different. Kick a table over, throw your cup of tea at the postman and lose your head to this brilliant new tune from Toronto punks Bad Waitress.

KANADA THE LOOP // LIFE ON MARS
Don’t let the red herring in the name or the blond hair fool you, KANADA THE LOOP is repping the indigenous Aussie community with a talent for pooling oddball energy into a sound that is brimming with serotonin.
