THE GIG
Say Lou Lou support Foster The People - London, Troxy


Getting their fair share of ‘Pumped Up Kicks’, tonight marks one of Swedish duo Say Lou Lou’s biggest shows to date. Their marvelling, softly-softly take on pop isn’t a replica of Foster the People by any stretch, but the pair share similar intentions with the headliners in hopes to steal the charts for the next few months.

THE BIG NEU THING
Sunshine Mind - Cosmic Krash
Cosmic Krash by Sunshine Mind

Clarity rinses out the woes in ‘Cosmic Krash’, one of two standalone tracks being sported by LA duo Sunshine Mind. The pair of Henry Lopez and Travis Moore know their way around heart-pumping, side-splitting guitars and jolting chants practically sung out the side of a car with its sunroof down. Think Splashh with less stoner influences, more eyes on the great open road.

OTHER NEU BUSINESS
Mother - Victim


Brooklyn four-piece Mother are the latest in a long line of acts linking together R&B and minimal production like they’re adding salt to a boiling stew. The combination makes sense - tasty, too. Debut track ‘Easy’ saw the guys - known as Jimmy, Penn, Simon, and Darren - set a standard that’ll prove tough to top. ‘Victim’ gives it a go, swapping funk-stamped guitars for brooding synths and one hell of a sax solo. Everything’s so in vogue, half of the challenge for Mother will be trying to stay ahead of the pack. Songwriting prowess like this suggests it’ll be a doddle.
