Fascinating Things : Issue 09

Montreal’s BIG | BRAVE have their second full length, “Au De La”, recorded and ready to release via Southern Lord 18th September.


Hot off the back of their latest release, A.D.D, just a matter of weeks ago, Jingo are ready for round two with “Ghost In The Machine”, the next track to be lifted from their upcoming EP (25th September).


The single will be featured in a future Aural Delights podcast.


Revelation Records release the “Vanished Crusade” debut LP from Southern California hardcore quintet, Forced Order, in early August.

Revelation Records release Vanished Crusade on CD and digital platforms on August 7th, with the vinyl version to follow shortly afterward.


I’ve been sent details of the new  single by the Swedish electro-pop act Death In The Afternoon. The song is called ’82, and it is produced remotely by the duo themselves. Christian and Linda’s hard work, talent and artistic individuality seem to be paying off by having already gained the support of GQ Magazine, JaJaJa Music, Nordic By Nature to name a few.

Airy, dreamy and filled with stunning vocal lines, the single ‘82 begins with a steady beat and lures the listener into its eerily stunning sound right away.  The nostalgic feel of this mid-tempo summer soundtrack presents the widely respected Scandi winning formula of writing songs filled with skill, quality and creativity. Its tempered instrumental atmosphere is given a steady rise and a contrasting sense of melancholia by the distant lead vocals.

’82 will be released via Summer Heart’s label Sommarhjärta, and it will be available for sale and download everywhere from the 28th August.
