So this week marks NME.com’s 15th birthday – and what better way to celebrate than by giving out some brand new music for you to listen to? Here’s what we’ve got for you on this fine fall afternoon:
First up is this gorgeous 11-and-a-half-minute remix of Bombay Bicycle Club’s new single, ‘Lights Out, Words Gone’ (out October 17th via Island Records), courtesy of Oslo’s Todd Terje.
If you’re not familiar with the original, check it out below:
And give the remix a spin right here:
We’ve also got the first listen to a brand new tune from We Have Band. It’s been 18 months since they released their debut album, ‘WHB’, so if you’ve been jonesing for some new stuff from the London trio, now’s the time. You’ll be able to download their single ‘Visionary’ over on the band’s official Facebook page in exchange for a ‘like’, but you can stream it here first.
Here’s what vocalist Dede Wegg-Prosser had to say about the new release: “’Visionary’ has at its centre the story of a dislocated, disorientated Los Angelean. Someone struggling to come to terms with himself and the world he finds himself in. Someone who wants to change and doesn’t know how to achieve that change. Someone who pleases but doesn’t really want to please. Someone wanting to leave his stamp on the world but without really knowing how to.”
