It looks like Moreish Idols are not going to pause anytime soon as the band is truly on the roll at the moment. Recently we got a fantastic return in the form of “Nocturnal Creatures”, and now South London’s collective gives us another treat titled “Between These Ears”.
The song opens with a wary and booming saxophone screech, the perfect accompaniment for the vocalist’s chirpy-sounding voice. The group is still energetic and liberated, but this time worldly problems weigh down their love of life. While the band asks more than one pair of rhetorical questions, the instrumental background is enriched with new sounds — already familiar saxophone parts come into play and ringing, accidental knocks appear among them in some places.
As if by chance, Moreish Idols recall: “Don’t reinvent the wheel / Don’t try to be someone you’re not” — phrases that we have heard more than once and which are very important to hear at the right moment. Apparently, with the music of this London four-piece, you will not have to wait for the right moment — just turn on this song.

South London’s Moreish Idols have a new song out, and it seems that they have drifted a bit away from the thick post-punk sound that accompanied their debut EP Float last year. “Nocturnal Creatures” was again recorded with Dan Carey of Speedy Wunderground and is paired with a brilliant self-directed music video.
In the song band members present themselves in a softer and more melodic way. And although their music is still replete with an abundance of all kinds of sounds, it is easy to distinguish two leading lines in it — the voices of the musicians merge in unison, and the saxophone chirps in the background like a bird trying to duplicate every spoken word.
True, it should be noted that in a world overflowing with fabulous nocturnal creatures, there is no place for the sun, which means that the track atmosphere leaves behind a feeling of mystery and magic. It’s interesting to see what Moreish Idols will bring us next.
The debut album from London trio Honeyglaze sounds just beautiful. The record, produced by Dan Carey, and released on his Speedy Wunderground label is full of poetic and inventive songs that get stuck in your head immediately.
There are no fillers here — every track is distinctive and instantly appealing with its smart arrangements, that are brilliantly complemented by the group’s Anouska Sokolow’s gentle and delicate vocals.
