News The Neu Bulletin (1st February 2013)

Neu’s daily new music guide features Metz, Team Morale and The Manticores.

It’s a new month, and Neu continues to offer up a choice show and a selection of new music tips, all in the name of exposing you to something new and exciting.

If there’s a gig that’s worth heading to (and you’d be a fool to miss out on today’s featured show), we’ll tell you all about it, and if there’s a song you need in your life, we’ll make sure it doesn’t fly under the radar. It’s the Neu Bulletin.

THE GIG
Metz, The Wytches, Crushed Beaks - Birthdays, London


Recent Neu profile recipients The Wytches play one of their biggest shows to date alongside proven Sub Pop stalwarts Metz and London’s brashest of two-pieces, ever the Neu favourites Crushed Beaks. It’s a show that bears earplugs, loose limbs and a desire to get sweaty.

THE SONG
The Manticores - New Who


Brother-sister duo Jesse and Sarah Atchison don’t give a flying fox about rules or refined production. When they’ve got a great pop song in their bellies, it just spills out without warning. ‘New Who’ is the Atlanta duo’s most saccharine, pulse-raising song to date; a thorough lesson in how not to overdo things. Emphasis in on melody from the off, and it’s the kind you’ll be humming to your friends until they threaten to slap you repeatedly.

OTHER NEU BUSINESS
Team Morale - Aurora


Their name might leave little to the imagination, but Team Morale’s music is a touch more evocative than a paragraph in a ‘How to get on with your co-workers’ booklet. The Sevenoaks, Kent two-piece make wild, heady electronic music, full of reverb-ed guitars and vocals that go even more high-pitched than the ones you hear on Grimes’ ‘Visions’. It’s musical catharsis, and it’s arrived via. a couple of guys from Kent - George Cloke and Oli Dewdney - who really messed things up by giving themselves such a silly name. We’ll forgive them if you do.
