Subba-Cultcha.com brings you the latest music, videos & news from; The Melodic, Aquilo, Ava Luna, Pool & Stats...
SUBBA-CULTCHA.COM SAYS: "Stats have unleashed their weirdly poppy sound onto our ears, it's a New Wave-influenced smorgasbord of sounds all delivered in playful, poppy packages. With the loping guitar riff and near spoken word-like delivery, 'Where Is The Money' feels a bit like a post-Millenium update of Talking Heads' 'Once In A Lifetime'. Elsewhere the band reveals influences as broad as Devo, PIL, Wire & XTC (especially on 'D'you Want To Eat'), fusing them with an odd lyrical focus. Taking a wide-reaching pool of influences and creating something close to cerebral Electro Pop reminds me of Hot Chip at the beginning, the arched melodies and English-sounding vocals delight with the playful nature of the music, and hopefully a sign of great things to come!" Inventive art-pop band STATS are ready to release their debut EP 'Where Is The Money' on 28th April via StatsCo/Domino Publishing. They're also playing on the
16th April @ Birthdays, Dalston. https://soundcloud.com/statsstatsstats/sets/stats
NEW TRACKS/VIDEOS FROM BANDS SUBBA-CULTCHA LOVE:
ENO • HYDE STREAM FIRST SINGLE ‘DADDY’S CAR’ Brian Eno and Karl Hyde come together with a new album to be released this May on Warp Records. Now we are delighted to reveal the first single, ‘Daddy’s Car’. Someday World is an album born from years of experimental beginnings, and polyrhythmic musical textures re-contextualised and brought together in one month-long session in late 2013. In contrast to the midi-horns-driven krautrock of ‘The Satellites’, ‘Daddy’s Car’ betrays the duo’s love of Steve Reich and cyclical Afrobeat, maintaining the strong sense of melody and structure through Hyde’s lead vocal. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rDAuBFLkqpQ&feature=youtu.be

STREAM AQUILO'S NEW EP Aquilo is the coming together of Tom and Ben, two musicians geographically located in what is perfectly exemplified in their music, the Lake District village of Silverdale. For those unfamiliar with the Lake District, the vast and open expansive landscapes can’t help but evoke a visual element of solitude and delicacy, it’s these components that feel so evident in Aquilo’s sound. https://soundcloud.com/aquilouk/sets/aquilo-ep
