Listen :: Wild Beasts stream farewell EP, 'Punk Drunk And Trembling'

Words: Sam Geary

After last month announcing they were to disband after 15 years, bowing out with a farewell EP, 'Punk Drunk And Trembling'.

The EP is out now via Domino, with a limited 10″ vinyl version released on November 17. The record features three songs from the sessions for their 2016 'Boy King' album sessions - and you can stream now below.

Embers and Dead Pretties both call it a day this week

Words: Alison Mack

As far as weeks go, this one has been a pretty dismal one for band splits.

After Wild Beasts started the ball rolling last month, announcing their breakup after 15 years, it seems to have spurred others on.

First of all, after six years and a raft of sonic tunes to their credit - including the new 'Drowning' and 'Until The Dawn' - Manchester's Embers announced the end of the road on Monday (October 16), posting this message to their social media:


Dead Pretties

Now today, we end the week with the news Dead Pretties have splitu - before many have even had a chance to get to grips with them.

“It makes us very sad to announce that Dead Pretties is no more,” they stated on Facebook earlier this afternoon.

It's been rather a short journey for the raucous London Pretties, only releasing their debut single, 'Social Experiment' this past February, followed by the more recent 'Confidence'.

Will we make it through to the end of 2017 without more parting of band ways? Watch this space.

[Video] Hundred Waters - Firelight

Words: Ellie Ward

After last month releasing their ‘Communicating’ album on !K7,
Floridian synth-folkers Hundred Waters are back with a magical video for ‘Firelight’.

The clip was directed by James R. Eads, whose aim was to create "something magical and ethereal.

“The video was then created entirely in virtual reality using Tilt Brush – a program developed by Google where you are basically sculpting with form and colour and light simultaneously in a three dimensional space. I spent about a month sculpting the world that the light lived in. Once the ‘set’ was completed, I then walked through it filming in VR to generate video content”.

You can stream 'Communicating' in full here.

Hundred Waters are in the UK for three dates next week:

23 Manchester Deaf Institute
24 London Village Underground
26 Brighton The Haunt
