THE GIG
TEEN, Us Baby Bear Bones - Brighton, The Hope


Two years back we were catching sight of Brighton band Us Baby Bear Bones at their local Great Escape Festival. And only now is the trio’s music being released in a big juicy record format via. Love Thy Neighbour. They join DIY favourites TEEN - who are touring the UK across several cities this week - to help preview their debut ‘What starts with a U ends in an I’ EP.

THE SONG
Superfood - Superfood


The debut effort of Birmingham’s Superfood is an interesting one. For starters, these guys were getting interview offers before they even played a show (their first London date was part of our ‘Hello 2013’ series). If ever you needed an example of B-town’s impact, that was it. But this self-titled, sense-enhancing debut effort meets hype by the eyeball and sends it to one side. The song’s so assured it spends half of its 4 minutes crying out the name of its makers, but it warrants its cocksure pose, no doubt about it.

OTHER NEU BUSINESS
RÊVE - COSMIC BELLY
COSMIC BELLY by RÊVE

The ‘cosmic belly.’ It sounds like some nonsense Russell Brand might refer to with regards to his sex drive, but it’s also the title - and indeed the literal sound - of RÉVE’s new track. The work of Julie Fossaert, based out in Lille, it’s a sparse effort with the occasional interruption of something harsh. When you think you’ve found a peaceful corner, the song’ll bolt out some forceful movements that jolts you out of your comfy musical chair. Its final coda of ‘Can you hear me calling?’ feels like a rhetorical question. Of course you can hear Fossaert. Nothing could be clearer.
