Elder Island: tour dates

Brighton based electro dream pop trio Elder Island have added a bunch of shows to their tour itinerary, promoting their The Omnitone Collection album: "They alternate between accessible pop and gnarly soundscapes, with shifting rhythms and jagged vocalizing. They create smooth yet rough songs with plenty of surprises. Not danceable per se, but that won't stop people from trying. Recommended if you like Portishead and Dead Can Dance".

Waltzburg: Eyes Shut

Eyes Shut, the new single from Dutch indie rockers Waltzburg, is a smoldering "fuck you" to the girl who has decided that she doesn't want to share the singer's bed anymore. It's a complex, post-psychedelic song that unfolds like a chrysalis. Edgy to make it hurt, soft to cure the pain, all tied together in a mishmash of orchestrated and slightly distorted tapestry of sounds.

The single is a taste from the new Cut The Wire album, due for release via Snowstar Records later this year.
