MODE - THE SUN
The new single from Adelaide's ace Britpoppers Mode. This definitely has an Australian rhythm section in full swing, with some awesome power pop from songwriter Rich Miller.
MAZE - ARE YOU READY
The new single from London's incredible Maze is a classic Britpop stunner. Madchester and shoegaze smash into each other, with the gorgeous vocals of Taiwanese artist Allie Yo floating over the top. What's for tea mum? MAZE!
CIGARILLO - QUIZ MACHINE
The second single from bedroom Britpop legends Cigarillo. An immaculate, spiky evocation of underage drinking, which will be familiar to anyone who remembers the terror of sneaking into a pub for the first time. What's for tea mum? CIGARILLO (with matched beers)!
ELECTRIC PARK - DREAMING OF A SEASIDE TOWN
The first EP on End of the Pier records, and the first release from Adelaide indie band Electric Park. No Time For Fools is stroppy indie at its finest, and is sure to resonate in an era when most world leaders are complete tits. The Sky's in Love With You is a love song as the Stranglers would write one. Maggie is a surreal, hard blast of nastiness. Dreaming of a Seaside Town saves the best til last - a melancholy breeze from the coast. What's for tea mum? ELECTRIC PARK!
MODE - BAD THING / HOLD ON TO YESTERDAY
The second single release on End of the Pier records, and the first from Adelaide Britpop band Mode. Bad Thing is a cracking slice of proper power pop, right down to the outrageous guitar solo. Hold On To Yesterday is like every Britpop ballad ever rolled into one dirty rizla. What's for tea mum? MODE!
CIGARILLO - rtl2 / EVERYONE LOVES JANET
The first single release on End of the Pier records, and it is a double A-side. Listen to RTL2 - a corking description of a world where your mum and dad have stopped paying for Sky TV in the mid 90s, and you can only watch German TV - then simply turn your phone over and listen to a corking description of a world where everyone fancies the same girl. What's for tea mum? CIGARILLO!
