Words: Leah Raymond

Brighton based four-piece Breathe Panel have shared the lead single, 'Carmine', from their forthcoming MJ (Hookworms)-produced self-titled debut album, out July 13 via FatCat Records.

Following debut single ‘On My Way’, the quartet once again meld a lush concoction of psychgaze and dreampop, with a shimmering guitar sound and complementary vocals that give air to somewhat bittersweet lyrics.

HAARM premiere new single and announce debut EP

Words: Ellie Ward

HAARM have revealed their self-produced new single ‘Box of Bones’, released on March 30 on limited edition vinyl via boutique record club HURD. Fans can sign up here to be in with a chance of securing a copy of the record, which will be the band’s first physical release.

Premiered by John Kennedy on Radio X, ‘Box of Bones’ is the first cut to be taken from the Liverpool alt-pop trio's forthcoming debut EP, due out later in the year.

Commenting on the single they said: "We wanted ‘Box of Bones’ to be a marriage between horror and pop music. We wrote the song shortly after watching a film called The Witch which came out a couple of years ago and scared the crap out of us, and we remember watching The Blair Witch Project for the first time and it genuinely scarring us for life too. We’re all obsessed with Abba, too, so we tried to squeeze as many catchy hooks in there as we could. It's the first time we've deliberately attempted to write a song for the dance floor in the same vein as Justice vs Simian.”

Check out the track here.

Despite their York show being snowed off today (March 18), the trio haven't far to go for their hometown show later in the week.

Live dates

21 Liverpool O2 Academy (w/ Fickle Friends)

05 Liverpool Sound City
