One Liners: N-Dubz, Four Tet, Rachel Chinouriri, more

By | Published on Thursday 27 April 2023



N-Dubz are back with new single ‘February’, their first release under their new deal with EMI Records.

Four Tet has released new track ‘Three Drums’.

Rachel Chinouriri has released new single ‘Ribs’. “I wrote ‘Ribs’ when I had a chest infection and a crush on someone and it was annoying me”, she says. “So I combined my two annoyances and described my liking of someone as a chest infection that was hurting my ribs because I actually had achy ribs. So basically fancying someone is a sickness which you can either cure or it can make you worse – in my case I never recovered”.

BB Sway has released new single ‘How Will I Get There?’, the title track from their forthcoming EP, out on 26 May. “It felt right to name the EP after this track because the whole project centres around the theme of transition/striving towards something”, they say. “In different ways, each of the four tracks speaks to some desire for change, congruence and alignment. ‘How Will I Get There?’ is about the journeys we go through, the desires we have, and the truths we confront along the way”.

Protomartyr have released new single ‘Elimination Dances’, taken from the band’s sixth album ‘Formal Growth In The Desert’, which is out on 2 Jun. The band will be in the UK for live shows in August and October, including a show at London’s Electric Ballroom on 26 Oct.

Vexed have released new single ‘Anti-Fetish’, the first single from their new album ‘Negative Energy’, which is out on 23 Jun. “We wanted to start with a huge riff and a strong message”, say the band of the track. “’Anti-Fetish’ is us confronting the constant comparisons and ungrounded hate that bands receive. It’s become completely accepted in the [metal] scene to cross the line of constructive criticism and just dive bomb into hatred and prejudice. This song is us setting the record straight by calling out the blatant discrimination”.
