We Are Scientists’ New Album – Out January 20

“Murray says the album’s lead single “Operator Error” is the song that bridges Lobes with their previous album 2021’s Huffy. “We consider Huffy our daytime record – it’s an upbeat rock album designed to soundtrack jet ski rides to the Bahamas and piña colada in aquamarine-tiled jacuzzis. Our new album, Lobes, however, is our nighttime album. As the first song on the record, ‘Operator Error’ soundtracks that moment when you realize that all of those tiki cocktails you started drinking at 11:00am are going to give you a wicked hangover by sunset, and so your best bet is to just keep the party going, consequences be damned!” He adds, “Lobes is, overall, more electronic, dancier, more ominous, and way sexier than Huffy; ‘Operator Error’ kicks the door open into that seamy underworld.

Brooklyn based experimental rock band Pure Adult share new single ‘Hot Crusade’ via FatCat Records

Pure Adult are a Brooklyn-based experimental rock duo formed by Jeremy Snyder and Bianca Abarca. At the centre of their music is the far left political ethos and DIY attitude the pair share. Their new single, ‘Hot Crusade’, is a furiously cynical dismissal of a hope for change.
