Although the weather outside might be less than summery, the rootsy, summary pop of The Hempolics should be enough to bring some much needed sunshine into your life. They are back with their new track ‘Wild Is The Wind’ - a clever cover of the Nina Simone classic, all in finest Hempolics style The track forms part of a a new limited edition 12” vinyl release for Record Store Day ’19. Radio 6 Music DJ Liz Kershaw thinks they could be her favourite new band of all time, and Clash Magazine described the track as being like “Funkadelic playing reggae in a Brixton basement."
Foals have often flirted with dance music on their earlier records, taking inspiration from techno music. Their new track ‘In Degrees’ finds them pushing further onto the dance floor than they've ever been before. Vocalist Yannis Philippakis explained "I thought it was a cool paradox to have a dance floor song that will hopefully bring people together in a meaningful way in a sweaty room, and the song lyrically is basically about the lack of that."
Pixx has unveiled her new single ‘Andean Condor’, the third to be shared from her new album ‘Small Mercies.’ Pixx says, "This song is written about the link between wo/mankind and nature. It is important to recognise how many times women have to face the absurdity of male hierarchy in our modern world. Having had endless conversations with (certain) men who justify the inequality of the sexes by comparing themselves to animals, I thought what better way to help them than to remind those men that they are supposed to be human, with emotional capacity and growth."
