News The Neu Bulletin (4th March 2013)

Your daily new music dose, prescribed by Neu.

From Monday to Friday Neu gives you a gluttonous supply of new music tips, ranging from which shows to head to across the UK, right up to which latest Canadian export is due to take the world by storm, or which local band is breaking big.

Every day we offer up a choice show, a song of the day and a little something extra that’s caught our attention. Check back here every day for your latest Neu Bulletin delivery.

THE GIG
Night Engine support The Joy Formidable - Brighton, Concorde II


Labelled as something of a Franz Ferdinand for today’s yoof, Night Engine’s twisted, Bowie-challenging disco-pop is anything but restrained. Joy Formidable fans stumbling in early to the venue won’t know what hit them.

THE SONG
AQUILO - Calling Me


London Grammar have only been around for a couple of months but apparently they’re already influencing a further crop of new bands. AQUILO’s debut track is the work of Tom Higham, Ben Fletcher, Fin Kay Lavelle and bedroom-producer Lucas Button. Like Foals sent through a nu-soul portal, it’s all proud bellows shrouded by misty production.

OTHER NEU BUSINESS
Au.Ra - Pyramid


A cheeky play on words on those strange psychic-medium monuments that help ‘focus energy’, Au.Ra’s new track follows closely in the footsteps of the previous, crystalline ‘Morning’. The Australia duo have that little something that goes beyond the shoegaze nods and the mbv adoration. ‘Pyramid’ shows it. Less emphasis on mammoth, Shields-style guitars and more on the rhythm and the momentum of the song itself, this is a small triumph from a band with plenty more in their locker.
