Everything But The Girl


Management company YMU has hired Yvette Medina as Head Of Latin Music. She joins from her own management business the Creative Management Firm. “YMU’s global resources and commitment to continue driving Latin music forward on a global scale aligned with my vision and passion, making them a perfect partner”, she says.

Music publisher Wise Music has promoted Marcus Wise to CEO for Europe. Meanwhile, Dave Holley becomes Chief Operating Officer. “It is both an honour and a privilege to take over the reins of my family’s European business”, says Wise. “I look forward to supporting our historic publishing houses by increasing our core activities in sync and classical music”.



Everything But The Girl have released new single ‘Caution To The Wind’. “Lyrically, ‘Caution To The Wind’ is a simple song about arrival and seizing the moment, so with the music we tried to capture the feeling of a perpetual point in time”, says the duo’s Tracey Thorn. Their new album ‘Fuse’ is out on 21 Apr.

Unknown Mortal Orchestra have released new single ‘Nadja’, taken from new album ‘V’, which is out on 17 Mar. The band’s London show at Brixton Academy on 31 Mar has now been moved to the Troxy, with a second night added at the same venue on 1 Jun.

Ahead of the release of new album ‘Bless This Mess’, US Girls has released new single ‘Tux (Your Body Fills Me, Boo)’.

Frankie Rose has released new single ‘Come Back’. Her new album ‘Love As Projection’ is out on 10 Mar.

Meet Me @ The Altar have released new single ‘Kool’, ahead of the release of their debut album ‘Past // Present // Future’ on 10 Mar. “’Kool’ is the love child of everything we’re into musically”, they say. “There’s rock n roll guitars, heavy drums, and a crazy, catchy, pop-inspired vocal melody on top. It’s a fun, anthemic song about having a crush on someone, and wanting them to know how ‘kool’ you think they are”.

Gruff Rhys has released new song ‘I Want My Old Life Back’, taken from his soundtrack for upcoming film ‘The Almond And the Seahorse’. “I actually wrote the song after my van got nearly totalled in early 2020 during a flash flood on the A1 at 3am after a gig”, he says. “I was stranded in a pub for three days as I waited for it to be fixed, like my own personal lockdown a few weeks before the big one when the song seemed to make even more sense”.

Lvra has released new single ‘Venom’, featuring Spent. Her new EP ‘Soft Like Steel’ is out on 22 Mar. “’Venom’ is a song that oozes confidence out like green sticky dew, and was written after a particularly eventful night out”, she says. “For me, going to clubs is a chance to put on all the shit I can’t wear during the day – it’s a place where I’ve seen so much individuality and style, and the queer club scene here in London has been where I’ve been able to explore my own queerness – something that I never felt safe enough to do before I came here”.

Tiny Ruins have released new single ‘Dorothy Bay’. Their fourth album ‘Ceremony’ will be out on 28 Apr.
