Marina And The Diamonds

Other notable announcements and developments today…

• You remember Marina And The Diamonds is doing that thing where she releases a new video every month, yeah? Well here’s the new one.

• Låpsley has released a new video for a track from her ‘Understudy’ EP. ‘Brownlow’, if you were wondering. She’s also announced that she’ll be touring in April. The dates are here, I reckon.

• Those band names where they just change a bit of an existing name are a mixed bag, aren’t they? I heard one the other day I thought was quite good, but I’ve forgotten it now. Anyway, one of the worst (name-wise) is Joanna Gruesome. Here’s their new single.

• Pins are going to release another album then. It’s called ‘Wild Nights’ and will be out on 8 Jun through Bella Union. There’s a single, of course.

• Robyn protégé Zhala has announced that she will release her debut album, ‘Zhala’, on 25 May. “My music’s based on physical reactions”, she says of her music. Here’s a whole interview for you.

• Are Kate Boy planning to release a new single? Yes. Is it called ‘Higher’? Yes. Can you listen to it? Yes. Did I initially think I could finish this by asking a question to which the answer was ‘No’, worded in a way that would make that switch funny? Yes.

• Shigeto is going to be touring in May. There are various dates, but the only one I can be bothered mentioning is Village Underground in London on 8 May. The rest are all listed here.

• Chilly Gonzales is doing alright for himself, isn’t it? He’ll be headlining the Royal Festival Hall on London’s glittering Southbank come 7 Nov. And if it isn’t glittering come November, we’ll order one of those envelopes of glitter, then it will be. Details and that here.
