Sometimes its difficult to pinpoint exactly why a band and/or song resonates. Having seen New York-based Been Stellar at The Great Escape in Brighton in May I was captivated.

We know June’s been very busy for new music, so if you needed a reminder: New York trio Space Fight (featuring two members of Ra Ra Riot) returned from a long time in the wilderness in April with the gorgeous ‘Fool For Me‘, then announced the launch of their long-awaited second album last month with …

NYC’s London Plane have exclusively unveiled to Backseat Mafia the scaling, anthemic title track to their forthcoming album ‘Bight Black’, out through Declared Goods on 17 June 2022.

It’s exciting to see Interpol back in action with news of the release of their seventh LP ‘The Other Side of Make-Believe’, due out on 15 July through Matador / Remote Control. To ease the anticipation, Interpol have released a single and video for the opening track, ‘Toni’. The archetypal Interpol sound is at the …
