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.
There has been a recent change in music direction to more R&B inspired synth pop. Bang on trend (one wouldn’t expect anything less from a fashionista) is Young & Sick; the Los Angeles based music and art project of Dutch Nick Van Hofwegen.
The man is just a bit talented. He has a clothing line and has also created pieces of artwork for bands including Foster The People and Mikky Ekko.
The upbeat and seductive ‘Heartache Fetish’ is layered with soulful grooves and a twinkling chorus. The track is taken from his self-entitled debut album which is out now via Harvest Records.
Sounds like: SOHN, Banks, Years & Years, Two Door Cinema Club, Frank Ocean, The Weeknd, Night Panther
