All Tvvins – ‘Thank You’

Here’s a new duo from Dublin. More good music coming out of Ireland. Where are they all coming from?!

They’ve already supported Arcade Fire, Pixies and Jungle.

They play Birthdays in Dalston, London on March 24th before heading off to South By South West in Austin. They’re also booked to do The Great Escape Festival in Brighton later this year. It’s what Joy Division would have sounded like if Ian Curtis grew up in Dublin, (post internet revolution) while hanging out with Bloc Party and TV on the Radio.

GIRL FRIEND – ‘Monte Carlo’

GIRL FRIEND are a new band who’ve been together for less than a year.

They formed in Manchester and say they’re inspired by Japan, Roxy Music and Soft Cell. Basically, my dad’s record collection.

It’s got a Kitsune vibe to it. Defintely one for Two Door Cinema Club fans. Also check out their tune “Chemical Reaction”.

Lusts – ‘Temptation’

Leicester brothers, Andy and James make up Lusts!

They’re owning, and very much proud, of the New Order/Joy Division influence.

I’ve been playing this for 6 weeks and it hasn’t burnt a sorry musical death yet.

They play Corsica Studios in London on March 12th with Coves.
