Watch: Lusts – ‘Waves’ [video]

August 6, 2015 in News

Leicester duo Lusts have announced details of their debut album Illuminations, set to be released on October 23rd on 1965 Records, and unveiled the video for latest single ‘Waves’ which you can watch below.

Illuminations was produced by MJ from Hookworms in his Leeds studio, combining distorted organs and synths with fuzz guitars and driving choruses. The band, who have recently been heralded as NME’s New Band of The Week, release ‘Waves’ following the success of their previous singles ‘Mouthwash’ and ‘Temptation’, which DIY dubbed a ‘glistening, new-wave nodding exciting debut’.

The duo, made up of brothers Andy and James Stone, evoke the the classic woozy chorus and reverb laden guitars of Echo and The Bunnymen and the new wave pop sensibilities of Beach Fossils. Following successful appearances across the summer at various festivals including Secret Garden Party, Lusts continue to build their live presence with further UK/EU dates in September, October and November.

Watch: Vessels – ‘Echo In’

February 13, 2015 in News

The release of Vessels‘ third album Dilate is a couple of weeks away and new single ‘Echo In’ has been unleashed. It is described as “a fine example of Vessels’ evolving sound—streaked with spiraling synth lines and buzzing chords, the track takes shape as a fast-moving electronic hybrid”, and you can watch the newly released video for the track below.

After four years of incremental musical evolution, Leeds quintet Vessels emerge into the light with a brave and brilliant new sound, masterfully fusing the widescreen builds and elegant breakdowns of their previous work with altogether more physical electronic rhythms. With their new album Dilate, Vessels are firmly focused on the euphoria of the dancefloor.

Dilate began as experiments with looped sounds and vintage synths, the tracks flourishing when played live together in a room. Producer Richard Formby (Spectrum, Wild Beasts, Darkstar) was brought in to finesse the recordings and mix the album in his Leeds studio. There was alchemy in this collaboration, with the band’s dexterous digital manipulations and live energy fed through the prism of Formby’s experience and outlook.

Always a consummate live act, recent performances have been an unholy communion, maintaining the crystalline melodies and crushing dynamics of Vessels’ previous life as a rock band: two drummers front and centre, band and audience feeding off each other’s energy.

Dilate will be released in 2nd March 2015 through Bias, a new imprint of The Leaf Label.
