Stay with me on this, ok? London’s Duologue will be playing a show at XOYO on the 25th of September and will be supported by Oxford’s Wild Swim. Duologue remixed Wild Swim’s ‘Another Night’, Wild Swim returned the favour by remixing Duologue’s ‘Cut and Run’. This is an mp3 of the day post, because Duologue is offering up their remix of ‘Another Night’ as a free download on their Facebook page here. But you can listen to both remixes in the Soundcloud widget below.
Going back to Wild Swim now, the Oxford band is releasing a single on the 21st of October, called ‘New Dawn’, and it’s just been released to radio this week. You can listen to that below too.
Wild Combination released an EP in earlier this month called ‘Pulses’ on Sweet Release Records. Now the band are offering up a free download of a new song, ‘Goodbye Drive’, on their official Web site in exchange for your address.
BBC 6music presenter had nothing but praise for the Chelmsford band when I interviewed him in May at this year’s Liverpool Sound City. And it’s easy to see…er…hear why in ‘Goodbye Drive': there is a sultriness to the vocals, but there’s also shimmery synths matched up with a grunge-y guitar. It shouldn’t work, but somehow it does. Stream the song in the widget below.
Dance band Fenech-Soler‘s forthcoming single ‘Last Forever’ – we featured it on this previous Video of the Moment post – has been remixed by Eagles for Hands. And it’s up for grabs for the price of absolutely nothing. Listen to and grab it for your very own from the Soundcloud widget below.
Catch the band on tour this November; for more details, go here. Their second album ‘Rituals’ will be released on the 16th of September.
