BLACK MIDI SHARE NEW SONGCROWS PERCH
New Rough Trade Records signing black midi have unleashed new single “Crow’s Perch”, along with a video by Vilhjálmur Yngvi Hjálmarssonalso.

Since forming just over a year ago, black midi — Geordie Greep (vocals/guitar), Cameron Picton (bass/vocals), Matt Kelvin (guitar/vocals) and Morgan Simpson (drums) have quickly cemented their reputation as one of the hottest new underground bands, following a string of sold-out UK live dates and surprise shows punctuated by constantly shifting sets and blistering musicianship. Recently, the band played their first North American live shows, were named a standout act at SXSW and sold out their first two NYC shows.
“Almost every song Black Midi performs unfolds in surprising ways, one riff quickly switching to another, one mellow passage blooming into caustic screams and dissonant guitars, songs constantly collapsing in on themselves and being born again.” - Stereogum “Band To Watch”

“Black Midi are less interested in proving themselves the future of indie rock than in imagining indie rock from the future” - Pitchfork

COMING MAY 17: INTERPOLA FINE MESS EP
Interpol have announced a new EP, A Fine Mess, which will be released May 17th on Matador Records. The announcement comes with new track “The Weekend”.
 
Recorded during time spent in upstate New York with Dave Fridmann, the five songs that make up A Fine Mess gradually emerged as a body of work with a narrative and flow unto itself. The previously released title track, “Fine Mess,” then received further production from Kaines & Tom A.D. and mixing from Claudius Mittendorfer, who had first worked with Interpol as an engineer on Our Love To Admire. The resulting set is a living, breathing postcard from the band to their fans as they tour the world throughout 2019, and a linear continuation of the visceral and contagious energy set loose with Marauder.

“Another satisfying example of the band’s signature indie post-punk sound, which has so far been too alluring to grow stale” – Uproxx

“Feels like a pivot back to Interpol’s original, heavily affected post-punk vibe” – Stereogum

HONEY HAHS SHARE NEW VIDEO FOROLIVE GREEN
Honey Hahs this week revealed a video for “Olive Green”, taken from their magical debut album Dear Someone, Happy Something, which is out now on Rough Trade Records.

Honey Hahs are three sisters from Peckham in South London, aged 16, 13 and 11. Their songs convey a disarmingly frank, refreshingly clear view of the world. Honey Hahs have been championed by, and played shows with Goat Girl, Fat White Family, Insecure Men, Shame, Micachu and The Moonlandingz amongst others. Dear Someone, Happy Something was produced by Steve Mackey (Pulp). 

Rowan plays guitar and piano, Robin plays bass and Sylvie plays drums, and they all sing and harmonize.

“Don’t get too hung up on how old the people who made this record are: these songs speak to a spirit that is inside all of us – it’s just that it sometimes gets buried by age.  It’s nice to be reminded of this time-honoured truth: the Youth will save us!” - Jarvis Cocker
