Guy Connelly brings his London quartet back with a second album, ‘Venn’, out via League of Imaginary Nations and !K7 on February 10 2017, their belated follow-up to 2012's debut ‘Ways To Forget'.

COCOA FUTURES - BEE
Lifted from the forthcoming ‘Blue’ EP - produced by Marc Withasee (Micachu & the Shapes) - out on Lost In The Manor Records on December 2. Electro-edged, indie pop grower from the London-based outfit, the follow-up to ‘The Blue’. “This song plays with the idea that different animals might experience emotions that we might not expect,” explains vocalist Greg. “I like how the lyrics have an almost children’s song vibe about them - coupled with a pretty filthy bassline.” Star rating: ★★




DRAHLA - FICTIONAL DECISION
Produced by Hookworms' MJ and released on October 15, the Leeds noise-punk trio offer a sub four-minute blast of hypnotic post-punk on this debut offering. Catch live at Wharf Chambers, Leeds on November 19. Star rating: ★★
