New music: Hot Natured, Money, Born Gold & The Preatures

Hot Natured

After last year’s club smash hit Benediction, UK four-piece Hot Natured return with more emotive house music in the form of ‘Isis (Magic Carpet Ride)’ featuring Egyptian Lover and a debut album Different Sides of the Sun out in September.


A Manchester band with epic indie-rock and cryptic Facebook tendencies have impressed Cillian Murphy enough that he has directed the ballerina-featuring music video for the band’s new single ‘Hold Me Forever’. They sound like Wild Beasts playing early songs from The Verve.

Born Gold

American electro-pop that doesn’t resort to EDM drops and sports a huge hook is to be celebrated so step forward Hunger, the new single from Montreal’s ‘Born Gold’ which sounds like The Postal Service made by real pop boffins.

The Preatures

Thanks to Haim and bands like Sydney’s The Preatures, early ’80s classic pop/rock songwriting is back in force. The latter’s brilliant new single ‘Is This How You Feel?’, which also gets remix treatment from Classixx is extremely enjoyable proof of this revival.
