Long, long, long overdue new single from Fair Weather Friends is finally out, and is accompanied with a video full of summer and positive energy. ‘Love Won’t Make It Easier’ is said to be introducing a second LP by the Polish electropop band, however no details have yet been released.
If you liked Fair Weather Friends’s first album, Hurricane Days, and songs like ‘Fake Love’, or the older classic, ‘Fortune Player’, you will be delighted to hear they haven’t dropped in quality one bit. Seamless combination of synthesizers, guitars, drums and a catchy melody, again proves to be more than enough for a successful dance tune.
The video also fits perfectly with the summery climate of the song. The band members are cycling through the French Riviera and the Alps in Austria. They decided to take up the challenge and test their skills on the Tour de France route – successfully! The video was shot by Mariusz Rychłowski and it’s dedicated to Eddy Merckx, one of the greatest bicycle racers of all time.
*Fair Weather Friends – electropop, dance band from Poland, set up in 2011. After releasing their first EP, Eclectic Pixels (2012), they quickly became associated with alternative music which links modern electronic sounds and some old school dance tunes from 70s and 80s. Band members: Mateusz Zegan, Michał Maślak, Maciek Bywalec, Paweł Cyz.
Irish electropop artist Róisín Murphy just served us a new, self-directed video for “Evil Eyes”, off her recent album, Hairless Toys. It’s a fascinating and unpredictable clip, in which she acts as a hysterical woman. So full of personality. What a legend that woman is!
La Roux again proves that pop music doesn’t have to be bad. Just shared ‘Topical Chancer’ is the next single from her upcoming album, Trouble in Paradise (out July 7). Simple lyrics and melodic synths work together quite well taking you back to the 90s. Nice holiday vibe 🙂
A few days after sharing ‘Let Me Down Gently’, the English synthpop singer La Roux released another single from her forthcoming LP, Trouble in Paradise (out July 7). Nicely uplifting funky vibe, will make your feet jiggle 🙂
Klaxons have just unveiled another single from their upcoming LP, Love Frequency (out June 16). ‘Show Me a Miracle’ follows already shared tracks ‘There Is No Other Time’ and ‘Children of the Sun’. Very different to the old Klaxons. Hm, would they actually need a miracle…?
Watch the new, animated Metronomy’s video for ‘Reservoir’ from their latest album, Love Letters. The cartoon was directed by Daniel Brereton. The abstraction of of the song and video quite reminds of another band’s hit, ‘The Look’ from The English Riviera LP.
