THE GIG
NO - London, Sebright Arms


The LA National-Channellers NO have been milling around London for the past week, all in the build up to this curious headline show. Expect many a punter to be converted, dreaming of the days they can bask in the band’s back-catalogue, ten years on. It’s early days, but NO are showing signs of being in it for the long run.

THE SONG
WORSHYPER - Calm & Haunt


Their name essentially refers to a person who worships ‘hype’ (y’know, like fickle old us, in truth) and ‘Calm & Haunt’ might be fully loaded to point of collapse with hype-gathering tools - high-pitched vocals, synths driven into overload - but the whole thing works with such a charm WORSHYPER are fast forgiven. The Philadelphia trio place soul in every empty crevice, declaring how they ‘forgot how to show you love’ before launching into a harshly driven, aptly romantic chorus.

OTHER NEU BUSINESS
Séyi - icecold


Upping the soul stakes by some distance is this debut song from enigmatic ‘male’ Séyi, featuring his ‘flatmate’ in ‘icecold’. It’s a breathless, pop-inclined rush, which had it ended up in the grappling palms of a Rihanna or such, would’ve burst straight into the higher echelons of the charts. For now, it remains gloriously under the radar, prepped for bigger things.
