The Dirty Hit band released their debut album 'My Mind Makes Noises' last week
The Manchester band released their debut album ‘My Mind Makes Noises‘ last week (September 14). In a four-star review, NME said: “It’s the perfect record to summarise the band’s rise from Manchester’s little secret to one of the most adored new bands in the country.”
The group appeared in the Live Lounge today to promote the record, playing the track ‘Eighteen’ from it. Bands who take part in the sessions are traditionally asked to perform a cover of a hit song and Pale Waves took on ‘One Kiss’, Lipa’s collaboration with Calvin Harris. Watch their performance below.
Earlier this year, drummer Ciara Doran said the band had big ambitions for their debut record. Speaking to NME in February, she said: “You can’t not aim for a number one. I think it deserves it as well. We’ve only written half of it, but that half deserves it!”
Meanwhile, Dua Lipa’s recent concert in Shanghai saw fans “dragged out” of the venue by security for waving rainbow flags.
Qingpu police have now said two security guards, known as 22-year-old Zhu and 20-year-old Nai, had argued with and beat members of the audience during Lipa’s gig. They have been given a 10-day detention, while the security company they worked for has been ordered to take steps to prevent other incidents like it happening again.
Lipa recently released a new track in the form of Silk City collaboration ‘Electricity’. The ’90s house-influenced song was co-written by The xx’s Romy Madley-Croft, along with Silk City’s Mark Ronson and Diplo. It will feature on a reissue of her self-titled debut album.
