New music guide The Neu Bulletin (15th April 2015)

DIY’s new music tips, featuring Rosie Lowe, Sand Dunes and Velodrome.

The Neu Bulletin is a daily update of the most exciting new things DIY’s listening to. Think of it as a stream of recommendations that every so often pops up something spectacular. Most of these are Bandcamp finds, big ups from readers or cheeky submissions that pop out the inbox.

Every day we offer up a choice show, a song of the day (branched under the understated heading “Big Neu Thing”) and a little something extra that’s caught our attention. Check back here every day for your latest Neu Bulletin delivery and follow our ‘Listen’-tag for everything new music related.

THE GIG:
Rosie Lowe

London, St Pancras Old Church

It’s still taking a while for everyone to pay attention to Rosie Lowe’s big step up. Recent single ‘Who’s That Girl?’ marked that milestone, fledging gold out of murky, blink-and-you-missed-it production tweaks. Her future-R&B comes to the fore tonight with a show at the capital’s St Pancras Old Church. It lands ahead of a forthcoming debut album, due out later this year.

THE BIG NEU THING:
Sand Dunes - Doomed

Sand Dunes are a new Houston-based trio - Kitty, Isaac, Dani - fledging oddball pop out of big, crippling real life tales. “I’ll break your heart again”, they sing on Sand Dunes, a duo-vocalist set-up being placed alongside gentle waves of synth. Blog pop with actual serious purpose, ‘Doomed’ is a bright beginning.

OTHER NEU BUSINESS:
Velodrome - Gemini

Santiago, Chile’s Velódromo find a new face in shoegaze. A tired, beaten and bruised term, it somehow comes to life midway through their self-titled EP, where the two-faced burst of ‘Gemini’ exposes itself in the open. This is a song with separate sides, one that eases you in and one that rips your guts out. A razor-edged revelation.
