News The Neu Bulletin (23rd October 2012)

Neu’s daily guide to nights out and new music. Featuring Dan Croll and Moses Gold.

Neu’s got you covered for new music recommendations and nights out this week. Each day we’ll give you a choice gig, plus a selection of fresh artists to check out. Today we’re spoiled for choice, so we thought we’d recommend you not one, but two gigs in the capital tonight.

Dan Croll, Mt Doom - Sebright Arms
Foxes, Faye, Syron - London Madame Jojos

London is spoiled for choice tonight, as potential chart-toppers enter the city by the handful. In one tiny room packed to its furthest physical point are a trio of stunningly talented female vocalists, all combining at Madame Jojos. Elsewhere, the man behind ‘From Nowhere’, easily one of the tracks of the year, turns up to prove to us that there’s plenty more in his sparkly pop locker.

Dan Croll plays London’s Sebright Arms, tonight.
Elsewhere, catch Foxes, Faye and Syron at London’s Madame Jojos.

Moses Gold - Submissive

In a track premiere on DIY today, Phill Young isn’t shy about how bright he thinks he future is. We asked him for a quote to accompany the track, and he replied by saying: “I really believe that the way I approach things is totally different to anything else out there at the moment. I’m brutally honest, not false/fake and I’m convinced people will respond to this.” Make of that what you will. One thing’s for sure: Said statement isn’t an unnecessary act of bravado. This guy believes in what he’s doing, and clearly suffers for his art. ‘Submissive’ is the finest product of this act of suffering to date. Emotionally charged but delicate in approach, Moses Gold is working restraint into his songs, and it makes them truly immersive, challenging listens, for the better.


Best self-deprecating blog on the planet Lost Lost Lost yesterday introduced Neu to Gun Shy. We’ve always been partial to boy-girl duos with big catchy pop songs, and so Summer Camp and Slow Club fans alike will well and truly lose their heads over this. Debut track ‘Battles’ is as fuzzy as it gets, but fight through the fuzz and you meet head-first a song of endless appeal. And to think, the pair might have named themselves after a Grizzly Bear song. Talk about a new found love.
