Euphoric, hazy and big — that’s how “Some Things Never Change”, a new single by Priestgate sounds. This band is one of the brightest young talents on the UK underground dream pop/post-punk scene and should only get bigger in the coming years. Hopefully, they have an album (or an EP) planned for sometime soon or maybe even in 2023.
The single is released alongside the music video, shot & edited by Luke Hallet.
Having just signed with Loma Vista Recordings, Los Angeles-based band Militarie Gun announces the extended edition of All Roads Lead To The Gun. To celebrate the news, they have shared a great single “Let Me Be Normal”, which would be one of the four brand new songs on the deluxe release.
The visuals were directed by frontman Ian Shelton and animated by guitarist William Acuña portraying the band performing in an 8-bit world.
B-Sides are always an awesome treat, especially from cult bands. This is exactly the case here. A Place To Bury Strangers have shared a new visualizer for their previously unheard track “Don’t Save Your Love”, which features tour footage of the countryside around the world in 2009.
It is taken from the expanded and remastered reissue of their 2009 album Exploding Head, out on Mute / BMG on October 21. The release will feature many rarities, including other B-sides, a couple more unreleased songs and also covers of the hits by 13th Floor Elevators, David Bowie & Love and Rockets.

If Humour were your friend, they probably wouldn’t miss a word of your conversations together. This ability to notice the smallest details is clearly visible in the new single “pure misery” from the young Glasgow band, where vocalist Andreas Christodoulidis in a very theatrical and satirical way underlines the problems of public speaking.
Here’s what he says about the new single: “I wrote the song about being a singer in a band, and standing up to address lots of people in a very serious way as though I must have something meaningful to relate; something the audience needs to hear. It feels a little ridiculous doing that sometimes, especially when the songs are most often just about stories or feelings. So the narrator of the song is supposed to be trying to convince the audience that he has something very profound to tell them, and he’s kind of stalling until he can come up with something”.
The sharp and nervy track would be a part of their upcoming debut EP with the same title Pure Misery set for release on November 25 via So Young Records (it would also include the previously shared “yeah, mud!” and “alive and well”). It is released in tandem with the music video directed by Luke Ainger and Fred Qvortrup, which sees the band performing outside with Andreas singing in weird locations.
