Your daily new music dose, chosen by Neu.

From Monday to Friday, Neu has you covered. In these Bulletins right here, with recommended gigs and a healthy selection of songs, you’ll have a seemingly endless supply of new music tips.

Every day we offer up a choice show, a song of the day and a little something extra that’s caught our attention. Check back here every day for your latest Neu Bulletin delivery.

THE GIG
Ofei, Eli Prince, Bagel Project - London, The Old Blue Last


We’re most intrigued about Bagel Project, here. The project of Funmi White is - no disservice to the similarly intriguing Ofei (pictured, above), who headlines - a breath of fresh air. She’s an experimental artist working with some really eye-opening sounds.

THE SONG
William Arcane - Not The Only One


While it’s all about the musician, we’re not denying that, it is nice to see the folk at Pictures Music venturing out into the world of producers who do that singing lark. Sure, William Arcane is by definition an electronic artist, but only in the sense that SOHN roots his music in gadgetry too. Electornic artist, yada yada, this guy sings and it sounds wonderful. These vocals are an oddly warm glaze over some light, shifting synth patterns. It’s half Yannis from Foals falsetto, half something of its own making altogether.

OTHER NEU BUSINESS
Condors - Fearling


A real treat, this, from Guildford’s Condors. The swirling colours and bright blue landscapes that emerge in the accompanying video are similarly gorgeous. The whole thing is in the Wild Beasts’ ‘Smother’ school of fragile pop, made all the more illuminating with some bold, restrained vocals from Martin, acting against a frenzied guitar-led pulse that just gets more and more severe by the second.
