Foreign Air – Caffeine

Foreign Air - Caffeine

Join Foreign Air on their soul-pop ride, driven by ‘Caffeine’.

We all know caffeine makes us feel good for a little while, but as the benefits wear off, we need another kick. It’s a little like love, which often becomes addictive but for the wrong reasons. It’s just what Foreign Air are singing about in their new track.

The Born Love – Tempest

The Born Love

The Born Love

Debuting their first single, The Born Love share ‘Tempest’.

Comparing themselves to The Temper Trap and Kings of Leon may seem like a slightly cavalier approach, but what’s the point if you don’t aim high? And in this case, the resemblance is just.

‘Tempest’ has the flavourings of an electronic track, but with the additional rocky drums, and an all indie inspiring chorus.

The track was written by Kevin and Aron (BANKS, Halsey) of the band, and has been mastered by Brian Lucey (The Black Keys, Arctic Monkeys) in Los Angeles.

Glass Animals – Life Itself

Glass Animals

Glass Animals

Glass Animals are back with a video for the off kilter and immersive, ‘Life Itself’.

Lead singer and producer Dave Bayley says of the track:

“Things have changed a lot for us over the past two years. instead of sitting in the studio we’ve been in a different city every night; making friends, hearing crazy stories, getting in crazy trouble. So much has happened! All of it made me want to think about people, and write something rawer and more human. ‘Life Itself’ is one of those. It’s a guy who was born a bit strange, and struggles to become part of society. Because of that he spends more time alone in his own head, getting stranger, and it becomes an awful cycle of doom.

Sound and production wise…we’ve been buzzing off of the amazing energy of the crowds we’ve been playing to. As crowds grew, they got more feral…and so did we. We found ourselves going wilder on stage, and playing heavier, grittier, high energy versions of our songs, changing them every night. Now we’ve tried to put some of that energy, spontaneity, and sound on tape.”

‘Life Itself ’ is released via Caroline International / Wolf Tone, and is the first track to be released from their upcoming album, ‘How To Be A Human Being’.

Lake Komo – Resurrect

Lake Komo by Niall Lea

Lake Komo by Niall Lea

Lake Komo are a four-piece from Lancaster who now reside in Manchester.

The video for their release earlier this year called ‘Resurrect’, showcases expansive and bold arrangements, where lush electronic soundscapes act as an impressive backdrop for their emotionally driven lyrics and soulful vocals.

Speaking about the video, lead singer Jay explains;

“‘Resurrect’ is a song about loss and the process we all go through in order to deal with inner turmoil. Each section of the song (both lyrically and musically) is meant to represent a specific feeling, whether it be contemplation, anger, fear or acceptance. When thinking about a video for this song we wanted to avoid a love narrative as whilst it could have matched the track thematically it felt too specific as the song has a much wider range of meaning. With this in mind the narrative is more allegorical in nature and therefore more open to interpretation for the viewer.”

Foreign Air – In The Shadows

Foreign Air

Foreign Air

Foreign Air are a duo comprising of Jacob Michael and Jesse Clasen.

Their latest endeavour, ‘In The Shadows’, is a powerful ballad written about when a past relationship becomes a collage of memories hidden away;

“There is something very animalistic and ritualistic in the way we deal with putting the past away,” Foreign Air says. “You get tunnel vision and don’t see all the other great things and people around you. You’ve got to keep your head up or you won’t see the things that lie ahead of you.”

Foreign Air are set to release their debut EP later this spring.
