News The Neu Bulletin (7th December 2012)

Your daily new music dose. Featuring MYSTYRYS, Playlounge and The Neighbourhood.

Every day of the week, Neu gives you a choice show and a selection of new music tips, all in the name of exposing you to something new and exciting.

THE GIG
Ice, Sea, Dead People, MYSTYRYS, Playlounge - The Victoria, London
Presuming the bouncers are nice guys, have an attempt at getting through the door with a life’s supply of juice, maybe the odd sand pit and paddling pool while you’re at it, and some kind of mini climbing frame. This selection of bands appeal to those who crave fun - the most childish, innocent kind - in a gig, those who revel in the act of getting stupidly sweaty rather than standing awkwardly at the back of the venue with an overpriced pint. If you emerge out of this show, having witnessed Ice, Sea, Dead People, MYSTYRYS and Playlounge, with not an inch of sweat emerging from your skin pores, you’ve failed us. Free entry.

THE SONG
worries - Halloween Night


London’s Alex Williams likes to escape. He does this through worries, a project with one song to its name. Said track is a startling first work. ‘Halloween Night’ nervously commences with dreamy chords and a foggy backdrop, but Williams’ nonchalant vocals and a French spoken word sample join proceedings, to form a work of endless escapism. It’s just begging to be given the chance to soundtrack every road trip and break from reality.

OTHER NEU BUSINESS
The Neighbourhood - London tour documentary



Watching this Neighbourhood tour documentary, you realise not only that these guys could probably have made it as models had music not worked out, that their collection of tattoos is one to rival anybody’s, but also that there’s a creative vision for this band that’s being fulfilled each step of the way. From the very beginning, The Neighbourhood have gone all black-and-white, film-noir Hitchcock-style vision on us, and we’re thrilled by that, because it’s further indication of a pop group refining themselves and standing out from the crowd.
