Other notable announcements and developments today…

• Interpol have released new track ‘Fine Mess’. They’ve also announced UK shows in Leeds and Brighton this June.

• Octo Octa has announced new EP ‘For Lovers’, which will be out on 1 Mar. Here’s new single ‘I Need You’. The producer will also be in the UK for live shows in February and March.

• Cid Rim has released new track ‘Further’, featuring Lylit. “‘Further’ is about picking oneself up after defeats”, he explains. “But not only that, if you take all the energy a defeat or a big loss creates and channel it in the right positive direction it can give you a boost to take risks, challenge yourself and go further than you’ve gone before. And sometimes as a result of all that, a defeat can lead to a much bigger positive impact in the end. That’s what the song is about”.

• Jónsi & Alex Somers have announced that they will perform their ‘Riceboy Sleeps’ album live with the London Contemporary Orchestra at the Barbican on 8 Jul. It will be just the second time that they have performed the album live and the first time in Europe.

• Killers guitarist Dave Keuning has announced that he will return to the UK for more solo live dates in March and April. He’ll conclude the run at The Garage in London on 2 Apr.

• Confidence Man will play Electric Brixton in London on 2 May. “We’re coming back London and we’re takin it so far that you need to be fluent in body language to even understand it”, the band insist.
