The Dø

Other notable announcements and developments today…

• Electronica’s own Dan Deacon is to release a new LP, the apparently “simpler” ‘Glass Riffer’, on 23 Feb 2015. Go and look at the video for its lead single ‘Feel The Lightning’, which features Deacon pretending to be a girl, here, and click here to get tickets to his only forthcoming British show, at London’s Islington Assembly Hall on 16 Feb.

• Cinematic pop artiste Kissey has released a new single, and its title is ‘Melting Pot’. Stream the video for the track, which features on the score to Sundance-winning film ‘Dear White People’, at this link.

• Little Mix’s Jade and Leigh-Anne have remade Beyonce’s ‘one long selfie’ of a ‘7/11’ video in a distinctively lo-fi style. From the looks of it, alcohol was involved. Contrast the Yonce original with the Little (re)Mix one by clicking the appropriate links.

• Marina And The Diamonds has siphoned off a sad, slow jam from her new LP ‘Froot’, this following CMU approved first single ‘Froot’. And isn’t this ironic, the sad song’s name is ‘Happy’. Ha ha / boo hoo. Stream it via Popjustice.

• French-and-Finnish pop team The Dø (pictured) have signalled the slow approach of a newly-confirmed show they’re playing at London’s Koko (19 Mar 2015), by releasing a track in the shape of ‘Sparks’. All of which backs the release of the pair’s latest LP ‘Shake Shook Shaken’ on 26 Jan.

• Makers-of-discomforting-R&B-that-sounds-a-lot-like-The-xx 18+ are so hot right now, what with the recent-ish release of their first LP ‘Trust’ and all that, and so will be heading off to London to play a show at Corsica Studios on 28 Jan 2015. Thereafter they shall see the sights ‘on the continent’. In the meantime download the pair’s track ‘Rebirth’ for free, just because, here.

• This year’s Mercury Prize winners Young Fathers have disclosed the dates of a nineteen stop UK tour they’re taking in 2015. The first show is on 13 Mar at Skelmersdale Library, and the last is on 7 Jun at Liverpool’s Kazimier. Find which shoes go where in between here.

• Big-in-Norway (and in this CMU approved article) singer Emilie Nicholas has forewarned fans of a show she’s headlining at London’s St Pancras Old Church on 28 Jan, so everyone take notice because you won’t want to miss it. Tickets are on sale right now.

• Shia Le Bouf’s girlfriend Mia Goth’s fave band, aka American synth-pop types Sylvan Esso, have, like everyone else in the world, confirmed only one UK show in… guess which city. Yes, it’s London. On 26 Feb, at the Scala. To the ticket shop!

• Lana Del Rey, Sia, Lorde and some not-as-important other ‘leading artists’ have been nominated for the ‘Best Original Song’ awards at the 2015 Golden Globes. Also, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross’ ‘Gone Girl’ compositions are up for the ‘Best Original Score’ globe against… find who via this link.
