Following the release of her recent track “Mellow” featuring Shygirl comes “Started Out”, the brand new single from Georgia, her second single of 2018. Watch the Rosie Marks directed video below. 

“Started Out” is an upbeat and euphoric track infused with hedonism and influences from the Chicago house scene of the 80s. Using the same original 909 drum machines & sequential analogue synths used by dance legends of the 80s & 90s, “Started Out” is another shining example of Georgia’s flair in the studio; melting her thrilling pop lyricism, with her rich wealth of experience in the studio. 

The video, featuring Georgia, was shot and directed by Rosie Marks, who was recently included in the 2018 Dazed 100 list. Georgia says about the track:

Started Out is about that exciting sensation that comes from the beginning of something, maybe meeting someone for the first time and getting a sensation/thrill out of it all. It’s hard to maintain though, and you don’t want to lose it. But we can be bold, take risks, be young fools, and not be able to understand what it all means but know that someone will love us for it.”

ANNA CALVI 'HUNTER' OUT 31ST AUGUST 2018 (DOMINO ALL-IN)

Anna Calvi announces her third album, 'Hunter', which will be released on 31st August 2018 via Domino. To mark the announcement she has shared the William Kennedy directed video for single 'Don’t Beat The Girl Out Of My Boy'. Watch below.

Produced by Nick Launay (Nick Cave, Grinderman) at Konk Studios in London with some further production in LA, the album was recorded with Anna's band - Mally Harpaz on various instruments and Alex Thomas on drums - with the addition of Adrian Utley from Portishead on keys and Martyn Casey from The Bad Seeds on bass. 

Hunter is the embodiment of the feeling of truly letting go. For the songwriter and virtuosic guitarist, it was a catharsis, an opportunity to be more truthful than ever. The first new music since 2014’s collaborative release with David Byrne, Strange Weather EP, her self-titled debut album and the 2013 follow-up One Breath, Hunter is a visceral album exploring sexuality and breaking the laws of gender conformity. A queer and a feminist record, it is galvanising in its hunt for freedom. It was important to Calvi that it was as vulnerable as it is strong; as beautiful as it is harsh; as much about the hunted as it is about the hunter. 

The first single, "Don’t Beat The Girl Out Of My Boy”. A battle cry with a rousing chorus, the song was partly written while thinking about how young children are when they’re conditioned to follow gender roles – in particular, the “heartbreaking” process through which small boys are taught not to cry or show emotions. Speaking about the track, Anna said the following: It’s a song about the defiance of happiness. It’s about being free to identify yourself in whichever way you please, without any restraints from society.

VILLAGERS 'THE ART OF PRETENDING TO SWIM' OUT 21ST SEPTEMBER 2018 (DOMINO ALL-IN)

Conor O’Brien announces the release of Villagers’ fourth studio album, The Art Of Pretending To Swim, released by Domino on Friday 21st September. Watch the video for 'A Trick Of Light' below.                                            

Following the exquisitely sparse, intimate aura of 2015’s Darling Arithmetic, O’Brien’s new record reconnects with the multi-faceted approach of Villagers’ 2010 album debut Becoming A Jackal and 2013’s {Awayland} while adding a new-found soulfulness, rhythmic nous and dazzling panoply of sonic detail, both analogue and digital, creating feverish moods while writing effortlessly accessible tunes. Balanced with subtle aspects and lyrical themes that embrace existential fears and hopes in this desperate, technologically-centred dystopian age, The Art Of Pretending To Swim is the most brilliantly realised Villagers album to date. The album was written, produced, mixed and primarily performed by Conor O’Brien in his Dublin studio.

The video for ‘A Trick of the Light’, the first single from the album, was directed by Bob Gallagher. Conor says of the collaboration:

Myself and Bob got together and discussed the song thematically and came to the conclusion that there was no other option but to make a short film in which we follow a dishevelled shamanistic protagonist who mysteriously triggers an altered state of consciousness in everyone he meets, or at least believes that he does. We also wanted lots of dancing and to inspire a general feeling of "what the hell did I just watch?" in the viewer.

O’Brien has a string of accolades under his belt including two Ivor Novello Awards (the most recent being 2016’s Album Award for Darling Arithmetic), two Mercury Music Prize nominations and is also a previous winner of Ireland’s Choice Music Prize. Additionally, Villagers’ music recently featured in the high profile HBO drama ‘Big Little Lies’, Conor has collaborated with the composer Nico Muhly (that track featuring in the forthcoming Paulo Sorrentino Berlusconi biopic ‘Loro 2’) and Villagers’ Spotify session of ‘Nothing Arrived’ has hit over 100 million streams.
