    First heard back in early 2018 with 'In My Mouth', Auckland, New Zealand no-wave, low key post-punk trio Wax Chattels followed the same year with their self-titled debut album, released via Flying Nun Records and Captured Tracks.

    Still paying good, from that same record the band now share another of its tracks, along with a video.

    Directed by Dylan Pharazyn, the dark, cinematic visuals to 'Career' accompany the song's lyrics thatare, they say, "about women sacrificing youth, mental and physical health for success."

    Following 'Ready When You Are from late 2019, garage do-wop duo MoonRunners from Glasgow return with their new single, 'Dano'.

    Released on January 29, the Jamie Holmes-produced track is just over three minutes of fast and pacey, scuzzy and surfy wildness. Sounding a bit 60s retro, and a bit rock 'n' roll, for just two of them MoonRunners hit up the full ante.

    You can catch them live when they play a headline show single launch show at Bannermans in Edinburgh on January 29, followed by Gullivers, Manchester on February 9.

    The Snuts are up and running as they prepare to continue into 2020 the buzz they created the previous year. Today they release their dance-pit anthem ‘Fatboy Slim’, along with the announcement of their new ‘Mixtape EP’, out March 13 on Parlophone Records.

    Recorded in LA with Inflo (Karen O / Danger Mouse, Michael Kiwanuka, Little Simz) and Tony Hoffer (Beck, Goldfrapp, M83), the track is the second to be taken from ‘Mixtape EP’ and is filled with all the hooks and groove that you might expect.

    "The song is a nod to the nostalgic subculture of live music across the UK in the 90s and similar decades," says lead singer Jack Cochrane. "Toying with the idea of sampled drum loops and an electronic music styled structure the track is intended to pay homage to Fatboy Slim's notorious set at Brighton beach almost 15 years ago."

    The Snuts embark on a spring UK and Ireland tour, including London’s Kentish Town Forum on April 30. Pre-sale for the tour sold-out in under an hour, general tickets on sale now here.

    Premiered by Annie Mac earlier in the week on her BBC Radio One show, APRE now share their brand new single, 'Your Heart's Like A Jungle'.

    It follows last November's 'You Always Get It Wrong', and is about, say the duo, Charlie Brown and Jules Konieczny, "being lost in a relationship. It describes that frustrating feeling when you are trying your best to love someone, but you fail to understand their emotions and get lost in your feelings for them. It’s about the dead ends that mean you will struggle to get along, and the hardships when trusting the person you really love not to break your heart.”
