The track is a really fun rollercoaster of indietronica sounds and melodies.

Shields – Face to Face

Shields

Shields

Shields are an alt-pop five-piece from the UK.

Their latest track ‘Face to Face’ has been taken from their debut album ‘How Can We Fix This?’, which has been produced by Adrian Bushby (Muse, Foo Fighters).

Bushby sings praises of the band, “Shields, in my opinion, are one of the best bands I’ve heard in a long while in both songwriting and performance. They are an incredibly fresh and original-sounding band who I think will go on to achieve great things.”

Watch the video below to see if you agree.

‘How Can We Fix This?’, is available for pre-order, with a free download of ‘Face to Face’ for all pre-orders. You can’t say fairer than that!

Foals – What Went Down

Foals - What Went Down

Foals – What Went Down

Foals are back, after teaming up with producer James Ford (Arctic Monkeys, Florence + The Machine, Jessie Ware, Mumford & Sons) to release their fourth album, ‘What Went Down’.

The Oxford five-piece retreated to the South of France to record in a rural 19th-century mill. The result is a primal, intense, sometimes harrowing album of extremes.

Lyrically, Philippakis deals with themes around cultural identity, generational anxiety, cynicism, pessimism and heartbreak; “I wanted to tap into my inner madman and feel like I was channeling some sort of fevered creature”.

Watch the video for the lead single below:

The album will be released on 28 August.
