Prima Queen unveiled their latest track Eclipse.
“It’s about the reluctance to enter into a new relationship while you’re still reeling from heartbreak that has screwed you up,” they said.

“Whether it’s working on songs or working on sex, friendships or my relationship with my family – I think if I work on them long enough and hard enough, eventually I’ll sit down and really enjoy them. But that’s not how it all works, is it. It’s an ongoing process.
Tim Burgess shared Sure Enough, one of twenty-two tracks that will feature on his new double-LP, Typical Music.

Alice Boman shared Feels Like A Dream from their upcoming new album The Space Between, due out October 21, featuring guest vocals from Perfume Genius.
“In the past, I’ve written a lot of songs about disappointments, heartbreaks, and longing for love,” observes Boman.
“Being in love – I thought it would be so hard to write songs about it. Not wanting to sound too cheesy. But love can be cheesy. And this song is about how it feels like a dream sometimes. being with that person. Especially when you were wondering if you would ever find love.
