News The Neu Bulletin (23rd August 2013)

Neu’s weekend new music guide, featuring the raucous synth glow of Ballet School and Sydney’s Seekae.

The Neu Bulletin provides a daily dose of new music tips, all in the name of exposing you to something fresh and exciting.

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
Ballet School - London, Shacklewell Arms


Bella Union signings Ballet School sport a tight-knit, super-nostalgic glow. It’s the kind you’d encounter in Berlin discos (which happens to be where the band spend most of their time), set in some mid-warp time machine where nothing makes sense. Expect Dalston’s Shacklewell Arms to rejoice in a similar scene tonight.

THE SONG
Seekae - Another


Australia’s hottest export just turned the temperature up a notch. This place is steaming. It’s difficult to hear yourself think. What’s that? Three handsome smiling Sydney-based faces launching electronic-inclined, lustworthy pop into the sky? Why, that’s Seekae. They’re very exciting. ‘Another’ is probably their most accomplished song to date; a rinsing together of sweaty synthetics on top of a smooth-as-hell aesthetic.

OTHER NEU BUSINESS
Kristian Smith – So Much


Kristian Smith may be an unfamiliar name to most, but he’s actually the mastermind behind cult heroes YRRS and The Magic Gang. Here we see Smith go out on his own, and away from the noisy sounds of his previous projects. ‘So Much’ is a sweet acoustic number written for model Cara Delevingne, with a sound that would swoon fans of Travis Bretzer and Mac DeMarco. Hopefully we’ll see more of his delicate side soon. [Michael-James Dent]
