Thing For You by Oblique & Bunny X is less a song about 'the one that got away' and more about that certain someone that might still live somewhere in our minds in a distant but fond way. That person that is no longer a big presence in our lives but that tends to pop into our head every so often like old memories often do. That person who, for one reason or another, we can't be with whether due to timing or just the fact that we are only able to work with the information we have at the time.

Then, life moves on and we make our choices and even when we feel instinctively that we made the right ones, sometimes we can't help but wonder what life would look like had we gone down a different path.

It's the impossible human condition and the often insatiable curiosity of life's many 'sliding doors' and the time traveling we do both subconsciously and in our dreams, whether it's thinking back to a particular time and place in our lives or thinking about someone we miss, someone that is lost to time.

09 Sep 2022 - The Midnight - Heroes

The Midnight are thrilled to be announcing their new full-length studio album Heroes – due out September 9th via Counter Records.

Heroes is the third in a trilogy of albums that started with 2018’s Kids – which reached #1 on the Billboard Dance/Electronic Chart – and was followed in 2020 with Monsters. “…for me, Kids is self-knowledge, Monsters is self-love, and then Heroes is empathy,” said Lyle. “I got into depth psychology and this idea of etiology, the way a human forms,” he said about Heroes, adding that “the world doesn't get better but we do. We grow into ourselves. We grow into our voice.”

You can hear this shift in the new songs which are more visceral and warmer. For a band that started as a synth-heavy duo, they have come a long way – creating fully realized arena worthy songs. From “Heartbeat” with its Van Halen-inspired synth leads, echoing drums, layered vocal chants and an explosive chorus to the propulsive guitar-laden “Change Your Heart or Die” – Heroes ushers in The Midnight’s next era with some of their biggest and boldest songs yet.

While taking a huge sonic step forward on Heroes, the band’s music still possesses the dramatic and nostalgic streak they’ve become known for since their 2014 debut in EP Days of Thunder. The new LP also reflects the confidence they’ve gained in their songwriting thanks in part due to their expanded live lineup. The band’s vivid sound is well-suited to full rock instrumentation, and the five-piece has cemented that in front on massive sold-out crowds this past year in 1-2k-capacity venues, up from 500-capacity clubs in 2019 and looking ahead to selling out London’s 5k-person Brixton Academy and similar sized venues in 2022.

Empathy Test's first live album, recorded live, on their 2020 headline tour of Germany. No overdubs, no autotune or pitch correction, just the raw recordings mixed and mastered by non-performing producer member, Adam Relf.

09 Sep 2022 - Future Analog - Sinners

Future Analog is the artist name used by the songwriter & producer Paul Aston who is based in Gloucester in the UK. Sinners started with the aim to write a catchy synth pop song using vintage sounds but with a very modern production style and the sounds and arrangement chosen reflect this.

Blancmange new single
Blancmange have shared a new single, Reduced Voltage, alongside a John Grant remix of the track, ahead of the release of the forthcoming album, Private View.

The new album, out 30 September 2022, will be followed by an extensive UK tour that runs from 1 October through to a London Assembly Hall appearance on 10 December, with Stephen Mallinder, Bernholz, Oblong, Rodney Cromwell and Alice Hubble as special guests across the tour.

Neil Arthur explains of the new song: “I wanted a track driven by a singular minimal beat occasionally shot through with lyrical phrases. They’re thoughts, hints of an internal dialogue. Feel the groove, feel the pain.” before going on to say, “Me and Benge stripped away some of the original layers detail to make the track groove. Increasing the impact by reducing the content.”

The new single is accompanied by a remix from long-time co-conspirator, John Grant who says, “I have loved Blancmange for close to four decades, so it’s such an honour to be asked to remix a track off the new record. It was a blast and it’s my first. Hope you enjoy.”

Across the album, there’s a deft marriage of futuristic electronic sounds, Arthur’s unmistakable vocal hooks, and songs that veer from buoyant and joyful to dark and brooding.

Benge returns as a key collaborator, and David Rhodes (Kate Bush, Peter Gabriel, Scott Walker) returns as the guitarist, having previously performed with the band on 1982’s debut Happy Families (as well as several other Blancmange albums). 

Reduced Voltage’ is available on all platforms. Listen: Taken from Blancmange’s forthcoming album ‘Private View’ out Sep 30. Pre-Order: Subscribe to Blancmange’s channel: Sign up to the Blancmange mailing list: Follow Blancmange Facebook Instagram Twitter YouTube
