Every weekday, DIY’s new music know-it-all Neu brings you one essential new release to get obsessed with. Today’s Neu Pick comes from Other Creatures.
Dublin trio Other Creatures are gearing up to release a new EP, suitably titled ‘The First EP’. The first taster of the collection - new cut ‘Luxembourg’ - is our Neu Pick for today.
Centred around spiky, creeping guitars, the track is in equal parts unsettling, anxiety-fuelled yet anthemic. Anxiety creeps into its lyrics too: “I sit here by myself because I might regret it later,” the band sing.
“We spent about a year trying to find one while in the meantime we would make instrumental songs which in hindsight were pretty terrible but I think tightened us up as a band quite a lot,” the band say of their last year and search for a new member.
The band are set to play a headline show at The Islington in London on 14th November.
