News Bits & Pieces

LOOMING ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM, SHARE NEW SINGLE
Illinois indie rockers Looming have announced the release of their second LP ‘Seed‘, and premiered a new single ‘Down‘.

This new album will follow their 2015 debut ‘Nailbiter‘ and be released on September 29th via No Sleep Records. You can pre-order on Bandcamp [Here].

Jessica Knight had this to say on their new album and single;

This record still feels quintessentially Looming while exploring new musical concepts for the band. It feels familiar to us but new. ‘Down’ is about drawing new boundaries with other people and ourselves. This song blends jagged elements with a characteristically ‘Looming’ chorus and serves as a good example of how are growing as a band.

Listen to ‘Down‘ below.

THE NEW YORKS RELEASE NEW SINGLE, ANNOUNCE EP
Adelaide band The New Yorks have released their new single, ‘We Enjoy This Too Much‘.

Along with the single, and video clip which you can view below, the band has announced the release of a new EP ‘I Wish I Was You, But That’s Just Me‘ for July 31st.

To launch the EP they have a few shows in August / September lined up. They will play Hotel Steyne in Manly on Friday 18th August, Rocket Bar in Adelaide on Friday 25th August and The Reverence Hotel in Melbourne on Friday 22nd September.

Check out that new video below.

BRIGHTR SHARES A NEW VIDEO CLIP
UK acoustic emo act Brightr just dropped a new video for his single ‘Sick Note‘ taken from the debut full length ‘Year One‘ available via now Perth based Penultimate Records.

The video for ‘Sick Note’ is silly and bloody, with occasional sick, but I was also trying to convey an idea through it that no matter what knocks you down (the mocked up injuries and fake bloody scenes), those sad times are only as powerful as you allow them to be and the awesome stuff (family, friends etc) is gonna be there to pull you back up. I pieced this video together with footage from two of my favourite tours with my best friends Marty (Annas Anchor) and Tomasso (Girless), as well as footage from my time away in America to play at The Fest and have a holiday with my family. The bloody injury prone scenes were where it all got a bit silly, but what can I say, I’m a sucker for fake blood and gross silly antics.

Check out the video below.
