The Neu Bulletin (Delivery Girl, Kllo, Peach Club & more)

Neu Bulletins are DIY’s guide to the best new music. They contain every single thing that’s been played at full volume in the office, whether that’s a small handful or a gazillion acts. Just depends how good the week’s been.

Alongside our weekly round-up of discoveries, there are also Neu Picks. These are the very best songs / bands to have caught our attention, and there’s a new one every weekday. Catch up with the most recent picks here.

Manuka Honeys - Baby

Brighton’s prolific bunch of bright-eyed new acts remain as productive as ever. Manuka Honeys’ new single - mixed by The Magic Gang’s Kristian Smith - is a doe-eyed romantic, laced with a summertime sadness that’d make Lana Del Rey envious. There are currently more killer choruses by the coast than in a Madonna greatest hits collection.

Kllo - Bolide

Melbourne duo Kllo (formerly Klo) capture a steamy in-the-club anxiety. Instead of ticking the drinks-dance-snog checklist, they mirror the feeling of walking into a new space for the first time, trying to gather your bearings. ‘Bolide’ is a quick-thinking, powerful ode to those disorienting moments.

Delivery Girl - Delivery Girl

On their scratchy self-titled latest release, Melbourne’s Delivery Girl sound like they’re making it up on the spot. From opener ‘Polly Jean’’s wild declarations of love to the see-what-chord-sticks mentality, it’s no surprise to learn this came together in seven hours. Sometimes off-the-cuff excitement beats glossy perfection, as evidenced here.

Whyte Horses - Promise I Do

Like the first hints of sunstroke, Whyte Horses bring a curious drowsy quality to traditional psych. There’s danger lining the seams of ‘Promise I Do’, a taste of their new album ‘Pop Or Not’. Every standard dose of summer-ready excitement carries a hidden purpose.

WEIRDO - Butter

WEIRDO aren’t here to be serious. Their hook-stuffed pop is like early Metronomy in its don’t-give-a-fuck mentality. Anything goes, flipping soul and standard pop upside down just for the hell of it. Their ‘Butter’ video is bizarre, Snapchat-fused and an unintentionally terrifying portrait of online-led dystopia.

Peach Club - Equivocator

Norwich newcomers Peach Club repeat vicious claims until they become true. “Baby I don’t want you! Baby I don’t need you!” they bark on ‘Equivocator’, an unrelentingly loud introduction to grungers with serious purpose. Beyond the fuzz, what’s most exciting about Peach Club is how every stab of noise feels like a mission statement.
