ONE TRUE PAIRING 'ONE TRUE PAIRING' OUT 20TH SEPTEMBER 2019 (DOMINO ALL-IN)

Tom Fleming will release his debut solo album under the guise One True Pairing. The former Wild Beasts songwriter, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist shared the first taste of his new direction earlier this month with “One True Pairing”, the titular track of the upcoming record. Watch the music video above. 

Today, Fleming is pleased to share the second song from the self-titled album, “I’m Not Afraid”. With its refrain - “We’ve been kicked our whole lives and I’m not afraid, But I won’t go back down to that place again” - Tom sets his intention for One True Pairing.

“I wanted to write about the real world, I didn't want it to be an artistic, poised, tasteful record, it’s neo-heartland rock" says Tom Fleming. "One True Pairing is a name taken from internet fan fiction, where you write the perfect relationship you always wished existed. The idea of Prince Charming and Helpless Princess living happily after is no fun at all.”

Tom’s musical touchstones were Bruce Springsteen, Don Henley, Tom Petty alongside Depeche Mode and Swans. He wrote and played everything himself and then brought in Ben Hillier (Nadine Shah, Graham Coxon) on mixing and production duties.

One True Pairing is an album shaped by class frustration and self-despair and there is a continuation of the exploration of masculinity that made Wild Beasts so unique. As well as being deeply personal, OTP has a wider political resonance. "This country is going through a terrible moment and if you listen to the art nobody seems to give a shit,” Fleming says emphatically. He believes that class is entirely discounted from the current conversation about inclusivity and privilege. In its 11 songs of discordant guitar and aggressive synth Fleming channels his discontent with Britain in 2019 and a “feeling of directionless rage and cheatedness which hasn't gone away."

Anna Calvi is pleased to announce that she has written and performed the score for the entire new season of BBC One’s Peaky Blinders. Peaky Blinders had its season 5 premiere in Birmingham yesterday evening, where Anna Calvi joined the cast and director Anthony Byrne on the red carpet.

Previously a fan of the series, Calvi said on writing the original score: “This is a new thing for me but it was a really good fit, I love everything about the show. I completely immersed myself in it and became quite obsessed with the characters, especially Tommy Shelby [played by Cillian Murphy] and getting lost in his mind.” 

Anna adds: “There is a duality to the show, a beauty and a brutality, which I have been exploring in my own music and on the ‘Hunter’ album. I want to say thank you to the director Anthony Byrne for believing in me and letting me seek out what I needed to.”

Read Anna and Anthony’s exclusive interviews with NME here.

Anna Calvi’s first score for television follows the release of her critically acclaimed third album Hunter. Calvi is a previous Brit Award nominee and has been shortlisted for the Mercury Music Prize twice.

Warmduscher’s release their new single 'Midnight Dipper' and announce their upcoming album 'Tainted Lunch' out 1st November 2019 via Leaf Label. Watch the video featuring Iggy Pop above. 

Do you know that sinewy young fellow ploughing his way though the fields? Why, it’s Walt Clipper, and he has something to say. An armful of methamphetamine and a satchel full of anabolic steroids, driving a seven-wheeled behemoth at light-speed along a crystal highway. He is that neural terrorist of unknowing wisdom. Your friend and mine. Won’t you hear his story?  

Let me tell you, morning is the time for breakfast and I am just in time for tea. ‘Midnight Dipper’ has set a new bar for myself, the altruistic lust-conduit, to leap over. I have attempted to raise my limp and worthless body from my chair several times in a futile bid to resume the dance of my forebears, but to no avail. I end up, still, a used tissue of a man, crumpled on the floor, calling for help. 

If Warmduscher’s music can do this to an individual such as myself, imagine what it will do when played live in the discotheques and dancehalls of Berlin, Paris, Ghent and Jalalabad… rammed music-halls around the globe will tremble and swell with rapturous applause. ‘Head pulled back, eyes closed tight…’, our magnificent orator, Clams Baker Jr. III commands, this is how you must listen, dear reader. This is how you must live. Dr. Alan Goldfarb, 2019.

After a highly successful summer touring the UK with Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Alice Jemima has just announced an autumn 2019 release for her second album, ‘Everything Changes’ and revealed a new single video for  ‘Dancing In Love’, which she co-wrote with Sophie Ellis Bextor and producer Simon Byrt. Watch the video above.

Alice’s new uplifting single ‘Dancing in Love’, is the second track to be revealed from her much anticipated second album. ‘Dancing In Love’  has an upbeat disco theme with retro synths and funk-infused basslines overlaid by Alice’s sugar -sweet, sultry vocals. The video for ‘Dancing In Love’ stars Alice and is a sequined,  disco-ball themed affair filmed in a karaoke bar in London, where Alice is surrounded by fun party goers. 

In her own words Alice describes her new single ‘Dancing in Love’ as “…being about falling in love, and the push and pull of the relationship resembling a dance. Since the release of my debut album two years ago, I’ve moved out of my parent’s home and now share a flat with my boyfriend and so I think this record, like most of the tracks on my new album, reflects a more mature view of love and relationships.”

Art School Girlfriend releases her latest single 'Diving' via Wolftone Records and has also shared equally dreamy visuals to accompany the release. Watch above.  

 “Diving is about desire and anxiety in equal measure,” explains Art School Girlfriend (AKA Polly Mackey). Written during a shift in Mackey’s personal life, the lyrics muse on the anticipation of new possibilities in her relationship. Grounded in quintessential Art School Girlfriend production elements - cavernous space, swathes of reverb and great rushes of air - Mackey’s vocal is centered in the ebb and flow.

(Sandy) Alex G has shared a new track and accompanying video, “Hope”, from his forthcoming album, House of Sugar.

(Sandy) Alex G, a.k.a. the singer, songwriter, and musician Alex Giannascoli, began writing the songs that would ultimately become House of Sugar in the fall of 2017. Whereas with earlier efforts, such as 2011’s self-released Winner or the landmark 2014 release DSU, music was written and recorded at a prolific clip, with these new songs Giannascoli approached the recording process with a newfound deliberateness, concentrating on a smaller collection of songs and laboring over each with more focus and acuity than ever before.

 Giannascoli worked closely with Jacob Portrait, who mixed both Rocket and 2015’s Beach Music, and helped to balance each of House of Sugar’s dense, multi-faceted tracks. As the product of extended focus and planning, House of Sugar emerges as Giannascoli’s most meticulous, cohesive album yet: a statement of artistic purpose, showing off his ear for both persistent earworms and shifting textures, and the out-there sonic adventurism that’s made previous (Sandy) Alex G records so singular.

As they edge closer to the release of their debut album, Blume, on 2nd August, Nérija are extremely happy to share the new track, “Last Straw”. 

The new track is one of the more dancefloor ready moments on Blume, capturing some of the best aspects Nérija’s live sets whilst adding some indefinable studio magic, perfectly exemplifying the collaborative nature of the band.

Nérija are the septet of contemporary jazz luminaries, Nubya Garcia (tenor saxophone), Sheila Maurice-Grey (trumpet), Cassie Kinoshi (alto saxophone), Rosie Turton (trombone), Shirley Tetteh (guitar), Lizy Exell (drums) and Rio Kai (bass).

Blume is a truly breath-taking collection of compositions that perfectly encapsulates everything Nérija; vibrant, engaging, infectious and truly current. For just over an hour, they take us on a sprawling wonderful journey, arriving at what is a majestic body of work; their personal and collective experiences and inspirations over the last half decade or so.

Four years since their critically acclaimed album, Escape From Evil, Lower Dens recently announced their newest creation - The Competition - which will be released on Ribbon Music on September 6th.  Today, Lower Dens are happy to share the video for the second single from the album, directed by Jason Nocito, featuring choreography by Veleda Roehl and dancers Stephannie Henriquez & Steven Jeltsch. “I Drive” follows on the heels - in both sequence and theme - of the album’s lead single Young Republicans, about a certain sect of society's elite. On “I Drive,” Jana Hunter sings inquisitively “We had streets. But now there’s just police.  I drive at night.

On “I Drive”, Hunter says, “Like a lot of queer and trans people, I've learned that real family is made, and it isn't necessarily blood. Even my blood relatives, we work for that familial connection and trust. This song is about leaving behind obligations to people who don't love or care about you, being with and about people who do. It's a feeling so strong it's driving me. That's the driving I'm doing."

Villagers are pleased to share a brand new single, “Summer’s Song”. Featuring a chorus of six flugelhorns, “Summer’s Song” was written and produced by Conor O’Brien and mixed by the legendary Dave Fridmann (Tame Impala, Flaming Lips, MGMT). Watch the video above.

In Conor’s words: “Summer's Song is the closest I'll ever get to writing a pure pop song. I just had to roll with it and I'm glad I did; it was really just an excuse to make the horns sound like sunbeams. Boy it's fun to play live. I can't quite believe we managed to get the magical touch of Dave Fridmann in on the mix”. The video - animated by Joe May and illustrated by Patricio Bauzá - is equally drenched with memories of summers past and anticipation of those to come.

Fresh from supporting Mumford & Sons on their recent UK arena tour, Villagers will be playing shows throughout the summer including a sold-out gig at Dublin’s glorious Iveagh Gardens (his biggest ever headline - 4000 cap).  A European tour including Paradiso, Amsterdam and the Rolling Stone Weekenders in Germany have also been announced for November.

Villagers released their acclaimed fourth album The Art Of Pretending To Swim last year and O’Brien has a string of accolades under his belt including two Ivor Novello Awards, two Mercury Music Prize nominations and is a previous winner of Ireland’s Choice Music Prize.

Additionally, Villagers’ music has featured in both seasons of HBO drama ‘Big Little Lies’ – reaching the Top 60 Shazam charts in the UK and US last month - and their Spotify session of “Nothing Arrived” has hit over 130 million streams.
