Astari Nite release new single ‘Dearly Beloved’

The post punk / dark wave band Astari Nite has just released a new single off their forthcoming album “Here Lies”. The album will be out this winter, but we get our first taste with the track “Dearly Beloved”. While compared to artists like Drab Majesty and even The Cure, this track reminds me of a darker version of The Psychedelic Furs.

Ride release another single, ‘Repetition’, from upcoming ‘This Is Not A Safe Place’ album

On August 16, Ride will release their next studio album This Is Not A Safe Place. The first single from the album was Future Love which featured the classic Ride shoegaze sound that we have become familiar with. The new single is called Repetition and it has quite a different vibe to it. It’s more of a banger that kind of feels like if Underworld wrote a song for Jesus And Mary Chain.
