New Music Monday: Purity Ring, Kagu, Clowns and more Happy Monday all! We’re getting very close to the end of the year but we’ve still got a steady stream of new music coming through. We’ve assembled a handful of tracks released in the last week or so for you, so check them out. We think there’s pretty much something for everybody in this short list. ‘Push Pull’ – Purity Ring Canadian electronic pop-innovators Purity Ring released ‘Push Pull’ on Friday, their first new music in 18 months. Somewhat different from their breakthrough album Shrines, the single sounds great and the accompanying visual is simple but somewhat captivating. Hopefully this is a sign of what’s to come. ‘Shadow of the Wind’ – Kagu Snakadaktal alum Sean Heathcliff has released ‘Shadow of the Wind’ as an introductory track to his new project, Kagu. A little different to the music Snakadaktal was making, but still with the same pop sensibilities Kagu is sure to impress Snakas fans and new audiences alike. We’re definitely looking forward to hearing more. ‘Spirals (Slide Away)’ – World’s End Press After a busy start to 2014, the lads from World’s End Press headed back to the studio to work on the followup to last years highly praised debut. With a shuffling disco beat and a stack of droning organs, ‘Spirals (Slide Away)’ is an exciting glimpse of their next record. Melbournians still have one chance to catch them this year, at NYE on the Hill. ‘The News’ – Jeremy Neale Our favourite Briswegian, Jeremy Neale, is embracing the future by stepping back in time. In announcing his signing with Dot Dash/Remote Control he has released ‘The News’, a song Phil Collins himself would be proud of. As a Phil Collins fan, I’ve got to admit it’s pretty great. ‘Figure It Out’ – Clowns Local gents Clowns have given us the first taste of their forthcoming LP, Bad Blood, with new single ‘Figure It Out’. Another savage and driving track, Clowns continue to deliver some of the best punk in town. They’ll be heading on the road in February and they should not be missed live.
