Here’s this week’s New Music post. Often new releases slow down around festival season, but Brighton’s bands? No Way.
Orbital‘s comeback has been properly cemented – their comeback in February was technically a remix, so its good to have some proper new material from the Hartnoll brothers with their new single Copenhagen:
Tigercub‘s new single debuted on Radio One, so expect them to be HUGE very soon. It’s Only Love is taken from their new EP Evolve or Die which comes out on Alcopop on on 29th September.
The RPMs released their Agents of Change EP back in June, but have just put out the video for the track Things I Forgot to Do, taken from the EP, which you can watch here:
Fickle Friends new EP came out on tuesday according to their facebook page. In my day records came out on mondays, and I know that moved to fridays, but has it changed again? Anyway, their Glue EP is out now. The band are off on a headline tour later this year, but no Brighton date has been announced as yet. If we hear different we’ll let you know:
DarkTrain are always great about getting in touch when they have new material, but we never get much more than a link to the track. So we haven’t got a great deal to tell you about their new one London Falling, other than if you’ve liked their brooding vocal electronica tracks we’ve posted before, you’ll like this:
First Cry is the debut by Knightstown, the solo project from Michael Aston whose achievements to date include composing music for the Glasgow Commonwealth games to playing keyboards for C Duncan. Now striking his own path he’s due to release his debut EP on Fatcat records in the new year. You can catch him live at SPECTRUM at the Basement on October 28th supporting Dog in the Snow.
Finally we have Medusa, which is taken from Hava‘s Talking to Myself EP. The theme of the EP is invisible illnesses, and the band recently played one of their first ever gigs at Disability Pride.
