NITE FIELDS – VACATION

Brisbane-based NITE FIELDS are to release their new single through Lost Race Records on November 17th. Recorded and mixed entirely by themselves, Vacation’s sparse drums clatter behind a whirl of synths and eerie, ever-so-slightly detuned guitars, the low, intoned vocals recalling Faris Badwan at his broodiest, before an extended instrumental section arrives, midway through, in which the multiple layers of noise spill over into something quite entrancing. Listen below.

ANCIENT TIMES – RANI

MELODY’S ECHO CHAMBER – I FOLLOW YOU


MELODY’S ECHO CHAMBER
will release her self-titled debut album on 25th September through Weird World. Another tantalising preview of what to expect from  forthcoming release comes in the shape of new, underwater, video for I Follow You. Typically breathy vocals and dreamlike soundscapes are the nuts and bolts, with a scratchy psych riff on the end for good measure.

Take a listen to previous track, Endless Shore, here.

FEMALE BAND – RAIN SONG

FEMALE BAND will release her new EP Goodbye New York, Forever through Italian Beach Babes on August 20th. As a teaser, you can stream lead track, Rain Song, below. It’s gentle and pensive; slow, meaningful lyricism displaying Anastasia Vtorova’s penchant for intricate song-writing.
