Our Mother – Heaven Video

Our Mother have shared the video for their latest track, ‘Heaven’, ahead of their London show at The Pickle Factory on March 30th.

Described as a “homage to karaoke”, the video sees singer John Hartley alone on stage while the rest of the band look on. Subtly funny, sombre and slightly bizarre the video offers a window into the world Our Mother have created for themselves, not just through their distinct and original music but through the intriguing personality they inject into everything they do.

Dream Wife – Somebody

Dream Wife have quickly became one of the foremost up-and-coming bands in the UK, and ahead of their U.S. debut at SXSW and tour with The Kills they share an anthemic new single.  On “Somebody,” a driving bass-line meets elegant yet gritty guitars to reinforce the lyrical message of the song – “I am not my body, I am somebody.” The single premiered last night on Radio 1– listen to it now HERE.

Dream Wife on “Somebody”-

“Somebody’ is a ballad for women. The song explores the experience of living in a female body within our society. It’s a conversation on the reclamation of bodies by the women who occupy them in a tender, yet direct and empowering way.”


Sunflower Bean – New Signing

Very excited to share the news with you that we now represent the w-wide publishing interests of Sunflower Bean, from Brooklyn NY.  Sunflower Bean are singer/guitarist Nick Kivlen, singer/bassist Julia Cumming, and drummer Jacob Faber. They released their full-length debut album, Human Ceremony via Fat Possum Records last year to great acclaim.

It’s a joyous pop nugget, with 11 tracks at the intersection of dreamy modern psychedelia and urgent fuzzed-out bliss.  An album of the year at NME, Rough Trade, iTunes, Esquire, The Guardian and more.  We’re delighted to now be working with them.

Sunflower Bean - Rebekah Campbell - General 5

“The music is both restrained and aggressive…but like a lot of great rock’n’roll, it’s also catchy, compelling, and concise.” Pitchfork

“Nimble, restless guitars propel the songs of Sunflower Bean, a Brooklyn band barely out of its teens that neatly connects 1960s psychedelia with decades of its indie-rock descendants, a family tree that holds Pink Floyd along with the Smiths, the Sundays, R.E.M. and Haim.”  New York Times

“…Human Ceremony is one of the most fully realized, sonically eclectic debut albums (everything from psych pop to stoner metal gets touched upon) in a minute.” Billboard

Our Mother – Heaven

AT_17277_18.02_17 copy

Tottenham-based four-piece Our Mother have shared new track, ‘Heaven‘, ahead of their London show at The Pickle Factory this month.

Heaven‘ occupies a realm that doesn’t quite feel like real life; jitttery percussion clashes with punchy video game samples whilst dominating horns and synths rumble and jolt through catchy choruses and overlapping hooks, soundtracking a world that is entirely of their own making.

Our Mother continue to reinvent and push themselves, the only thing that remains constant is widespread praise of the fact that this is a group with their own distinct style. ‘Heaven’ comes as no exception.

Brandon Can’t Dance – Angelina

Fresh off the back of his recent US tour with Alex G and LVL UP, Brandon Can’t Dance today shares “Angelina”, the new single from his forthcoming physical debut album Graveyard of Good Times.

“Angelina” is a straight shot of vitriol, all grizzled, grumbling guitars and haunting lyrics. Entirely self-recorded and produced, Brandon’s music is unique and diverse, and this song converges at the point where his songwriting melds the sombre tones of Elliott Smith with strains of ‘90s Sub Pop-inflected grunge.

Brandon says that the song is “about a girl own her own doing her best to deal with severe depression during a period where her friends are starting families and careers. I drew from southern gothic writings and tried to bring that out in the music itself.

A truly diverse collection of songs from one of America’s most compelling new songwriters, Graveyard of Good Times is as cathartic and melancholic as it is sardonic and playful.

Dream Wife – FUU

Dream Wife  have today released new track ‘FUU’ featuring a guest rap appearance from Fever Dream (ex-Reykjavíkurdætur).’FUU’ is a raucous ball of energetic and grizzled guitar licks positioned against an aggressive mantra of retribution in the form of irresistibly anthemic lyrics. Premiering on i-D you can stream now.

In addition, Dream Wife announce that they are to headline Huw Stephen’s Presents 10TH Birthday at The Social in London on November 8th (FREE entry).   The Huw Stephens event follows hot on the heels of the bands UK tour with Black Honey, and their appearances at Simple Things and SWN festivals. Dream Wife are also set to play a very special, SOLD OUT, Halloween headline show at London’s Moth Club this coming Monday.

Sleigh Bells – I Can Only Stare Video

Sleigh Bells have today shared a stunning video for their forthcoming single, “I Can Only Stare”, the music video directorial debut from the independent filmmaker Alex Ross Perry (Listen Up Philip / Queen Of Earth) along with the band’s Derek Miller.

Derek  said the following about the collaboration:
“The video follows three doomed women, all played by Alexis. It’s bleak but hopefully inspiring, too. Most of us have probably felt like one or all three of these characters at some point in time. I know I have. Making this was cathartic.

We had the privilege of working with Alex Ross Perry, one of my favorite young writer/directors, Sean Price Williams (badass Director of Photography) and a really, really great crew. Alex’s last film, Queen of Earth, was one of my favorites of 2015. There’s a tense, ominous quality to it which I hoped he would bring to the video. He did. His decision to shoot on Super 16mm film helped avoid the slick crispness we had grown tired of with digital cameras. It was a great experience. And a huge debt is owed to Robert Richardson, my favorite cinematographer. We ripped Mr. Richardson off big time for the rear projection screen performance footage.”

“I Can Only Stare” is the latest offering from forthcoming album, Jessica Rabbit, set for release on November 11th 2016.

The band have also been invited to perform for the first time on BBC2’s Later… With Jools Holland on 1st and 4th November 2016.
