Anteros – Breakfast

Anteros

Anteros

Anteros, a four-piece from London, share the seemingly self-indulgent video for ‘Breakfast’.

Speaking about the video, lead singer Laura Hayden said:

“Our aim was so depict situations women get themselves into on the road to finding love & happiness. There’s still pressure for us to be perfect in every aspect, like we’re constantly having to to modify ourselves in order to find our “happily every after”. Our relationships, careers, body, lifestyle, etc. We spend our whole lives focusing on what we don’t have & need to change – instead of enjoying the present. Each character in the video has been inspired by loads of different females: from Charlotte in Lost in Translation (played by Scarlett Johansson) and Beyoncé in Why Don’t You Love Me, to a Barbie Doll.”

‘Breakfast’ is Anteros’s first release on Kissability (Circa Waves, DZ Deathrays), out now.

Girl Friend – Waste My Time

Girl Friend - Waste My Time

Girl Friend – Waste My Time

The Manchester four piece, Girl Friend, are back with a new release, ‘Waste My Time’.

The track has been produced with dance producer LVTHER (of the Monstercat label), which may explain the dominant disco tones, however despite the appearance of an upbeat track, ‘Waste My Time’ has selfish connotations, “written from the perspective of a frustrated lover, constantly kept at arms length by the person they desire the most. Despite the emotional neglect, they still find themselves ‘dreaming up schemes’ to inspire change.”

Sounds like: Kid Astray, Pistol Shrimp, Swiss Lips, Passion Pit, Bastille, Kygo

The Wild Wild – Caspian

The Wild Wild

The Wild Wild

Benjamin Dunn is better known as The Wild Wild.

The Wild Wild found a lot of inspiration from an array of opposing influences, whilst spending time on a California beach and his new album has the ability to make it feel you’re sat there right next to him. Benjamin worked tirelessly in the studio with close friends and producers who each helped to add extra levels of sentiment to the album.

The Wild Wild’s new song ‘Caspian’ showcases Benjamin’s powerful song writing, with its soaring vocals over a dazzling indie backdrop. It also takes influence from the Prince Caspian novel by C.S. Lewis.

‘Into The Sea, Into The Stars’ is available via a 2-disc CD album, vinyl and for download from the 11 December.

Sounds like: M83, Bastille, Mew, Dive In, The Temper Trap, Landings, Kid Astray, Sekuoia, Kármán Line, XPLOR, Mackintosh Braun, FLOR, Friendly Fires, MGMT, Walk The Moon
