Everything Everything – Can’t Do

Everything Everything

The Everything Everything boys are encouraging you to dance with the brilliant ‘Can’t Do’.

A sound and look we’ve come to expect from the Manchester quartet – synth-driven pop of a cinematic nature with addictive hooks. The video depicts the need to try to fit into what society deems as “normal”.

“Can’t Do” is about trying to bend to the world and fit into it. Nobody is normal, nobody knows what normal is. ‘I can’t do the thing you want’ – we don’t care we just want you to dance.” Jonathan Higgs

It’s the first track to be taken from their forthcoming new album ‘A Fever Dream’ which has been produced by James Ford (Arctic Monkeys, Foals, Depeche Mode), out 18 August on RCA Records.

Wild Beasts – Wanderlust

Wild Beasts

The new Wild Beasts track is a pure indietronica delight. With swimming synth pulsations, and a highly unusual tempo beat, ‘Wanderlust’ is full of poetic lyrics, poking fun at British bands singing in American accents. The tuneful choral background vocals add a layer of urgency, which is accompanied by a music video depicting four characters running against a stark, colourless backdrop while increasingly restrictive obstacles and weather gets in their way.

With the distinctive falsetto voice of Hayden Thorpe loved and hated by all, Wild Beasts’ songwriting abilities are unquestionably brilliant. Wanderlust is no exception. To book tickets for their upcoming EU/US/UK tour, go to their website.

Wanderlust is the first track off their third album ‘Present Tense‘, which is out on Domino on 24 February. Pre-order here.
