The Weekly Broadcast
Another week, another set of blinding new releases both home and away! Here are our top picks:
Weekend Debt – Pomposity
The Glasgow four-piece make a promising return with new single, “Pomposity” a glimmering indie anthem injecting some energy into these lethargic days. A lyrically sincere ode to heartbreak backed by infectiously catchy hooks, we can’t wait to hear more!
Courting – Popshop
Taken from their debut EP due for release next year, the Liverpool quartet offer up “Popshop” an instrumentally relentless yet wildly catchy guitar-driven hit about selling out to the industry, a daring insight into what’s to come from the four-piece!
Nani – Pure Frustration
Having played at Broadcast back in January, Austrian artist Nani has recently released her six-track EP Pure Frustration. Now based in Edinburgh, the EP which is in places elegant and atmospheric shows Nani’s ability to craft songs and let emotions come pouring out in the music. Title track Pure Frustration is smooth and gentle and sets the tone for the rest of the EP.
Dead Pony – 23, Never Me
Dead Pony are back with the punchy and chaotic new single, “23, Never Me” written about that toxic ex-friend. At the core of the infamous Glasgow punk scene it can be quite hard to stick out among all of the punk acts always being raved about, but this new track with its raucous and wild chorus really grabs your ear from the get-go and by the end of the three minutes you will be more than happy to put it on repeat.
Indoor Foxes – Peach Stone
“Peach Stone” is the latest single from Edinburgh based artist Indoor Foxes has already picked up three BBC radio airplay in the space of a week before the song was released so it is interesting to see what comes next for her. The song lends itself to the same self-produced lo-fi vibe that other Indoor Foxes songs follow, and it really adds to the song, with a highly memorable guitar hook apparent throughout the song.
The Ninth Wave – Unhappy Days (The Twilight Sad Remix)
The SAY Award nominee’s have been releasing teasings of their latest (remix) EP over the past few weeks, releasing a track a week featuring some of our favourites including Dream Wife AND Working Men’s Club! Today see’s Glasgow legends The Twilight Sad offer up their take on “Unhappy Days” producing six minutes of industrial bliss, a match made in heaven!
Kylie – Magic
The song is called Magic and Kylie is not wrong. The queen of pop is back with another bop that is ideal for getting your day off to the right start. Whilst it does not quite reach the heights of Can’t Get You Out of my Head, Magic is still a certified tune and you may find yourself humming away at it all day.
Tunng – Eating The Dead
The folktronica group return with a record celebrating mortality, a subject matter currently at the fore now more than ever, this truly sombre affair makes for comforting listening on these darker days.
Matt Maltese – As the World Caves In (Acoustic)
This re-release of a 2017 classic from the London crooner, is currently a very fitting love song for the end of the world, apocalyptic melodrama packaged up as a piano ballad, what more could you want?
Larry Pink The Human – WASTED DAYS (INBETWEENS)
The new Larry Pink the Human tune featuring his good friend Joe is not quite the hard-hitting track you might expect from members of Slaves and IDLES. LPtH has proved that he can write a banging chorus in his three previous singles, even gaining indie lad recognition with a feature on the FIFA soundtrack and this one is no different.
