After sharing their new singles There Is No Other Time and the accompanying A-side track, Children Of The Sun, Klaxons have this week let the world know their third studio album, Love Frequency, will be released this 30 May (Aus).
The follow-up to 2010's Surfing the Void features production from Gordon City, the Chemical Brothers' Tow Rowlands, Erol Alkan, and James Murphy, and was recorded throughout 2013.
Sydney trio Movement reveal their new track 'Like Lust', the lead track from their forthcoming self-titled EP. Made up of a slow-burning anti-song structure with a looping groove, it was recorded by the band at home, then optimized by Canadian producer and The Weeknd foil Illangelo, who was later recruited to provide additional production and mixing.
In the space of the past ten months, Jesse Ward, Lewis Wade and Sean Walker aka Movement released their first two singles, 'Feel Real' and 'Us', played a handful of shows, toured alongside Solange and will soon take to the stage with DARKSIDE. They clocked up over half a million plays each on YouTube and soundcloud, nabbed Best New Track (for 'Us') on Pitchfork, and all the while never shifted their focus from the new - the first fruits of which we share today.
The Presets 'Goodbye Future' is realised by Australian filmmaker Prad Senanayake, who recreates the chaotic history of mankind on the dancefloor. Lots of mixed colours, moody shadows, slow motion and strobe lights allows the viewer to taste short moments of chaos, across an intense and confronting trip. Prad shares: "There has been a lot of dark things happening in Australia and around the world recently, which became the inspiration behind (this)".
