Spring Offensive – Speak

Spring Offensive release new single ‘Speak’ as a free download today. All you need is an E-mail.

Self produced and mixed by Emre Ramazanoglu (Warpaint, Palma Violets, Summer Camp) ‘Speak’ shows off a fresh side to the band with it’s hypnotic driving loop and clattering rhythms underpinning their more familiar group harmonies and evocative lyrics.

Written in a remote cottage in Wales and recorded in a living room home studio by David Pye (Wild Beasts, Faithless), ‘Speak’ is about being closed off and seeking isolation, about crawling into yourself to avoid confrontation. The lyrics teeter on the edge of a confession, but despite the build up, the ‘thing’ that so desperately needs to be communicated never is.

Sheen – Lovelust

Sheen - Lovelust

London-based six piece Sheen have unveiled their debut release ‘Lovelust’, available immediately as a free download.

First premiered this week on Artrocker.tv, ‘Lovelust’ was recorded and mixed with Samantha Bennett (Boy Kill Boy, The Horrors) and mastered by Grammy nominated producer Mandy Parnell (Animal Collective, PJ Harvey, Bjork) in Black Saloon Studios. This will be the first track ahead of their first official single release later this year.

Echoing elements of The Smiths by mixing a Morrissey-esque jaunty gloom with light and delicate guitar work, ‘Lovelust’ offers a refreshing contrast between lead singer Aneta Wrzos’s sultry voice against the youthful carefree nostalgia of a track that has arrived just in time for summer.
