Wolf Alice


Wolf Alice have released new single ‘No Hard Feelings’. “I started out trying to make a really cheesy almost Motown-y, Ronettes kind of song about the end of a relationship, and feeling ‘What’s the point of being miserable about it?'”, says Ellie Rowsell. “But it was short, because originally it was played so fast. I tried to make it longer, but I didn’t have any more words – I had said everything I wanted to say perfectly, and didn’t want to ruin it with more. So instead we slowed it down, and I felt way more moved by it like that”. The band’s new album ‘Blue Weekend’ is out on 4 Jun.

Mastodon have released new track ‘Forged By Neron’, taken from the soundtrack of DC Comics’ ‘Dark Nights: Death Metal’ series. “We are super excited and honoured to be part of the ‘Dark Nights: Death Metal’ soundtrack”, says drummer Brann Dailor. “We’ve all been fans of DC Comics and the Batman universe since we were kids, so it really means a lot for us to be able to add something to that world”.

Tom Odell has released new single ‘Money’. “No matter where we come from, how much we have, we are all constantly made to feel like we don’t have enough [money], and that somehow if we had more, we would be happier”, he says. “If you’re poor, get rich. If you’re rich, get richer. And you know those most absurd thing about it? By the time you get to the end of this paragraph, Jeff Bezos will have made another million dollars”.

Easy Life have released new single ‘Have A Great Day’. Their debut album, ‘Life’s A Beach’, is out on 28 May.

Torres will release new album ‘Thirstier’, on 30 Jul. “I’ve been conjuring this deep, deep joy that I honestly didn’t feel for most of my life”, she says. “I feel like a rock within myself. And I’ve started to feel that I have what it takes to help other people conjure their joy, too”. Here’s first single, ‘Don’t Go Puttin Wishes In My Head’.

Brodka has released new single ‘Hey Man’, which – she says – “is about role reversal”. She goes on: “It is the woman who dominates, conquers and seduces as opposed to a strong but submissive man. The whole thing is full of erotic associations and rock and roll fun”. Her new album, ‘Brut’, is out on 28 May.

Nyege Nyege’s Don Zilla has released new single ‘Bujingo’. His debut album ‘Ekizikiza Mubwengula’ is out on 18 Jun.

Circe has released new track ‘Going Down’.
