The Cult – ‘Give Me Mercy’

The Cult have announced the October 7th release of new album, ‘Under The Midnight Sun’.

To celebrate, the band have also shared their new single, ‘Give Me Mercy’, which you can listen to above.

Ian Astbury comments, “I was absolutely enamoured with this piece of music Billy had written, and it perfectly fit these thoughts I’d been having about our culture’s need to move past assumptions of duality.  We need new language because words can’t express where we’re going.” 

Billy Duffy adds, “‘Give Me Mercy’ has all the hallmarks of the new classic Cult to my ears … fresh yet familiar.”

There was also new music on offer this week from The HU. The band continue to build towards their second album, ‘Rumble of Thunder’, which is out September 2nd.

You can listen to their latest single, ‘Black Thunder’, above.

Vocalist Gala shared, “’Black Thunder’ is the crown jewel of our second album. The music video is split into two parts and conveys the core values of men through visuals. Our producer Dashka chose a unique location in Mongolia to shoot the video, where we had a great time riding the horses in the vast grassland of our countryside. We hope that our pride in our culture shines through, as we aimed to bring viewers joy and a piece of our culture through this video.”

Speaking on their next studio album, he continued, “Our second album will include ‘Black Thunder’, along with many new songs. We can’t wait for you to listen and enjoy it as much as we enjoyed recording it.”

As always we conclude our News Report with the latest additions to our ‘Discover’ New Music Playlist!

The Native – ’20 Something’

The Native share their brand new single ‘20 Something’.

Frontman Charlie Noordewier says, “This song is about a person who is ruining their life with addiction. It started as self medicating at weekends trying to escape from their job and slowly declined into more drink and drugs. They’re working a hard job all week and then blowing all their cash at the weekend to distract themselves from their unhappiness – rather than escaping from the rut they have created.”

Jack Valero – ‘Hollow Warmth’

Jack Valero has shared his second single, ‘Hollow Warmth’.

Jack says, “This continues the abstract motifs of the previous video with a little bleak humour added in. It’s supposed to be a classic breakup narrative, but with a dark twist that can be interpreted in many different ways.

We touch on the ideas of isolation again, but this time dive more into the sometimes dark privacy of a person. It can be taken metaphorically or literally, but either way it should make you feel like you’re getting a peek into someone’s very private world and maybe make you feel a little uncomfortable.”

Humour – ‘yeah, mud!’

Humour share their debut single, ‘yeah, mud!’, an early live favourite, with the band saying the following on the themes behind the track:

This song was one that just came to us. I think it came together in less than an hour and everything just seemed to fit first time. A lot of the lyrics are inspired by an old book Andreas read. In this book a soldier realises he’s about to die and writes his mother a note.

I think it’s interesting to think about what you might have to say if you realised you were going to die in a few minutes, and what you’d then say to your mother. Lots of pressure to come up with something important.”
