RIOT Release Radar: #112

blur // The Narcissist
Who saw this one coming? blur have announced new LP The Ballad of Darren with the harmoniously genteel ‘The Narcissist’. This is to be the band’s first album since 2015’s The Magic Whip and we like what we’re hearing.

NxWorries // Daydreaming
NxWorries, the superduo consisting of Anderson .Paak and Knxwledge, have announced a new album with the pensive ‘Daydreaming’; with sun drenched 80’s synth chords teeing-up a shredding soft-rock guitar solo.

Do Nothing // Moving Target
It’s no secret that Do Nothing have teetered on the precipice of the big leagues for a couple of years now; yet to top their masterful debut EP. With their inaugural album Snake Sideways arriving in June, however, ‘Moving Target’ is up there with the very best that the Nottingham band have sounded: tender, intelligent, vulnerable and endearing. Colour us excited for Snake Sideways.

Genesis Owusu // Leaving The Light
If you like Young Fathers, you’ll love this. Ghana-born Aussie artist Genesis Owusu has announced his new album Struggler this week with ‘Leaving The Light’. Genesis coalesces funk, punk, pop and a little bit of everything else to make for an incredible live show.

Sailor Honeymoon // Cockroach
Move over K-pop, Korean punk is the future. Voice note monologues intertwine with Kim Deal flavoured slacker-punk to make ‘Cockroach’ one of our favourite debuts of the year.

Gurriers // Sign Of The Times
Fresh off the back of their performance at The Great Escape in Brighton, Gurriers put our desensitisation of violence under the microscope with their second single ‘Sign Of The Times’. This is definitely a band to keep an eye out for over this year’s festival season.
