Republic of Wolves new single 7 replies

The Republic of Wolves have released 'Mitama' in advance of their new LP, shrine, due out in March of 2018. The single comes on the heels of the band reaching its crowdfunding goal, which you can still contribute to here:

'Mitama' puts the focus back on TROW's heavier, more dark and foreboding roots with screamed backing vocals and a lengthy mid-song instrumental breakdown. According to members of the band, shrine will also be their most heavily conceptual record since 2011's The Cartographer EP.

Listen to Mitama here:

Fever Ray Drops New Single 30 replies

More than eight years since her self-titled debut, Swedish electro-witch Fever Ray is back.

The lead single from her as-yet unnamed sophomore record is "To The Moon and Back." Full of busy, technicolour synth work, fans may find the track closer to Karin's work in The Knife, rather than anything off of her sparse solo album.

Will the rest of the album be more subdued? Or has Karin abandoned nocturnal ambience for a more tense, Shaking The Habitual-esque sound? At this point, we can only guess.

Check out the song, and its eye-popping music video, below.
