Arctic Monkeys’ Alex Turner and Miles Kane have a second album coming.
‘Bad Habits’ is the first single from the album, to be named, produced like the first one by Simian Mobile Disco’s James Ford. The song has a spiked psych-punk aggression to it matched with Owen Pallett’s swirling Bond-esque strings. The band are playing Coachella so we expect more live festival dates later this year. The duo’s last album together was 2008’s The Age Of The Understatement.
Bad Bones is a new Dublin female producer who has promised to release her debut EP this Spring.
If there’s one thing that the music world is lacking, it’s female musicians and producers. That’s true in Dublin the same as it is anywhere. Sal Stapleton’s new single ‘Beg’ suggests we need much much more. The song’s chopped and screwed style is paired with a tense house-facing electronic production. There is enough wooziness in the production to detect a love of dance music’s underground in her style, reminiscent of Maya Jane Coles. Vocally, Stapleton has a Robyn-style whisper going on contributing to the “eerie, rhythmic pop” vibe.
