ERRORR will unveil a new album Self Destruct on March 3 via Anomic Records (pre-order it here). It would be a debut release for the Berlin-based outfit, which was founded by Leonard Kaage; the Swedish multi-instrumentalist also known as the producer and guitar player of The Underground Youth.
We have already heard a steady run of new songs — “Innocent”, “SIXXX”, “Deep Blue” and more, and now the group shares a last single before the LP release, “Makeshift Happy”, which continues the band’s exploration of dreamy and shoegaze-inflected noise pop music.
It comes together also with the tour announcement, which is scheduled between April and June throughout Europe. It will include four shows in Italy, as per the below:
May 13 – Secret Garden, Venezia May 14 – Ozne, Prato May 15 – Nowhere Club, Modena May 16 – Arci Dallò, Castiglione delle Stiviere

Having already shared singles “Start Over” and “The Last Day”, David Brewis gives us another taster of his upcoming album with the jazzy avant-folk number “Surface Noise”. It follows the all-acoustic direction of his latest songs and sounds fresh and new yet unmistakably his.
He says the following about the track: “I read Surface Noise as a kind of tour around the east end of Sunderland, feeling dejected and windswept. The Astral Weeks influence is fairly explicit on this track, albeit tempered with a denser string arrangement and all played on top of a swung 6/8 rhythm which I probably first heard on John Coltrane’s version of My Favourite Things”.
The Soft Struggles is set for release on February 24 and would be out on the new record label run by David and his brother Peter (who perform also as Field Music), Daylight Saving Records (an amazing Thy Socialite! by SLUG released last Friday was the first release on it).
David will also perform three shows in support of the record. All the dates will feature a full ten-piece band with most of the players from the record — David himself, Peter (drums), Sarah Hayes (flute/piano), Faye MacCalman (sax/clarinet), John Pope (double bass), Field Music’s regular string quartet plus Eve Cole singing. Dates as follows:
