London-based trio HÆLOS have announced the release of their debut album Full Circle – due out via Matador / Remote Control on Friday 18th March.
First introduced in early 2015 with debut track ‘Dust’, HÆLOS (Arthur Delaney, Dom Goldsmith and Lotti Benardout) spent 2015 in their studio writing and producing their debut album. The result is ‘Full Circle’ – a darkly shaded yet ultimately radiant 11 track record that perfectly encapsulates the band’s philosophy.
Charlie Hilton has shared ‘Funny Anyway,’ the latest single from her stunning debut album, Palana out Friday 22 January via Captured Tracks / Remote Control Records.
Charlie spoke to Noisey, who premiered the track today, and told them it accurately communicates what it feels like to be her and that it’s “the most personal” song on the album. The track was produced by Jacob Portrait of Unknown Mortal Orchestra, who also played guitar and keys and Anand Wilder from Yeasayer on cello.
Overnight Savages released their stunning new track ‘Adore’. Marrying Jehnny Beth’s commanding vocals and evocative facial expressions with intimate closeups of the band, oscillating rhythms, and surging guitars, the affecting ballad is inspired by the American poet and activist Minnie Bruce Pratt.
The song comes from their forthcoming record ‘Adore Life’ out Friday 22 January via Matador / Remote Control. STACK Magazine have praised the new record in a review here – have a read!
Courtney Barnett’s debut album Sometimes I Sit And Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit has beencertified with ARIA Gold Sales in Australia.
This follows on from news earlier this month that she had been nominated for a Grammy Award for Best New Artist. Of the nomination Barnett says:
“It’s an honour to be recognised amongst so many great artists on such a huge scale and it’s well beyond anything I ever imagined would happen off the back of my first album. It’s also really cool to see fellow Australians Tame Impala and Hiatus Kaiyote nominated too!”
Barnett is now preparing for a massive summer of touring in Australia which will see her play festival appearances at Woodford Folk Festival, Falls Festival, Southbound, Sugar Mountain & Twilight at Taronga.
There are just a handful of tickets left for her Perth & Melbourne headline shows, with Sydney already sold out. Details here
