New music guide The Neu Bulletin (3rd August 2015)

DIY’s new music tips, featuring Sea Moya and Wayde.

The Neu Bulletin is a daily update of the most exciting new things DIY’s listening to. Think of it as a stream of recommendations that every so often pops up something spectacular. Most of these are Bandcamp finds, big ups from readers or cheeky submissions that pop out the inbox.

Every day we offer up a choice show, a song of the day (branched under the understated heading “Big Neu Thing”) and a little something extra that’s caught our attention. Check back here every day for your latest Neu Bulletin delivery and follow our ‘Listen’-tag for everything new music related.

THE BIG NEU THING:
Sea Moya - Slow Down

German trio Sea Moya make club music for people who’d rather bury their head in the sand than speak to anyone new. Dark, introverted but defiantly beat-led, their take on neon-glowed dance is minimal to the bone. On ‘Slow Down’, instead of letting their limbs take control, they pare things back and set a new agenda. Just six months into their career, it’s clear these three already firmly know what they’re about - the opposite of in-your-face, one-dimensional #bangers.

OTHER NEU BUSINESS:
Wayde - Eleanor

Without wishing to, err, wade into a debate about stones uncovered and new territory, thrashy Essex newcomers Wayde make strung-out, psych-doused rock that relies on its sense of familiarity. Don’t let that put you off ‘Eleanor’, though. Racing through a collision course with the likes of Ty Segall and Pond by their side, they still hit heights that other have yet to cross, rinsing a trusty sound and sourcing something original at the same time.
