MALMØ – new signing, new single!

MALMØ release debut UK single ‘You’ on 20th October 2017 via Integrity Records. Hailing from Aarhus on the east coast of Denmark, MALMØ features the unique voice and song-writing of Maria Malmø.

EP & single releases and immersive live performances in their homeland have seen Maria likened to Björk, Eivør, Oh Land and Agnes Obel – but there’s a unique musical identity and integrity to her work that defies comparison. To Maria Malmø, it’s all about the art and meeting the listener within it:

“I dream of touching people with my music, reaching their – and my own – inner core. I believe that music can do that, and that there’s a need for art that inspires the good in people. I think we all need that in this world on the edge of self-destruction.”

Written with a backdrop of the Himalaya mountains on a trip to Northern India, ‘You’ is the first UK single to be taken from MALMØ’s debut album ‘We Come From The Stars’, due for a UK release via Integrity Records in April 2018.

“A beautiful love song” – Bands of Tomorrow

“Less is definitely more here [as] folk-pop and dream-pop cuddle together” – Polar blog

A charming laid-back feel … [and] … beautifully pure vocals”   – Nordic Music Review

GOSN – If This Isn’t Love

 

If This Isn’t Love‘ is the brand new single by Ghosts of Social Networks.

After touching on the darker side of politics on previous single ‘Outside The Wheel‘, the band now return to the subject matter of iconic debut ‘Love Potion‘ with an upbeat but introspective look at how beliefs change with time, casting doubt on all you previously held true.

The alter-ego of Manchester based Nathan Till, Ghosts of Social Networks play live with Ben Dargue on drums and Andrea Gobbi on bass. ‘If This Isn’t Love’ was produced by Gavin Monaghan (Editors, Robert Plant, The Sherlocks).

Inspired by new wave, Nick Cave and The National, GOSN have enjoyed spot plays on BBC 6 Music & Kerrang! Radio, playlisting at Amazing Radio & BT TV, a live session on Fubar Radio, and support at BBC Introducing Manchester, several Triple-A stations in the USA and over 25 UK regionals.

“A perfect example of far-reaching indie rock, with a fitting dash of new wave vibes”Fame Magazine

“The band’s intrinsic sound is still one which proudly captures an essential Manchester vibe”Louder Than War

“They write anthemic rock tunes with catchy melodies & choruses the size of houses”One On One Music

Mannequin Death Squad – new single

Van Gogh‘ is Australian scuzz-punk duo Mannequin Death Squad‘s third instalment from debut mini-album ‘Eat Hate Regurgitate’.

The song addresses the world’s obsession with living life through a lens and the tidal surge of consumerism and narcissism to the detriment of the planet’s key resources.

“We think it’s important to highlight how manipulative all forms of the media can be. It’s time to look at the world through your own eyes, recognise what is wrong and do something about it. Switch off. Switch it off.”

The brand new video for ‘Van Gogh’ is exclusively premiered on Gigslutz now – GIGSLUTZ

The Melbourne-based duo, whose first UK tour last autumn saw them personally invited by Slaves to join them at several shows, return to the UK in September with dates already confirmed for Brighton, London, Hull, York, Manchester, Sheffield & Edinburgh (with more tbc).

“raw energy, frothing anger and, crucially, great tunes”  The VPME
“killer songs, without exception”  Aural Aggravation
“truly exhilarating”  GigSlutz
“fiery grit-pop”  Skin Back Alley

‘Eat Hate Regurgitate’ is available on CD and download via Integrity Records.
