New from The Heavy, St. Paul & the Broken Bones, Hannah Jadagu, Northlake, Daughter

The Heavy: I Feel the Love

Here's the second single to emerge ahead of this funk-rock band's upcoming sixth album, Amen. Never mind that the group hails from Bath, England, American Songwriter says the track "rollicks with Pentecostal-pop energy, rich with Mississippi heat."

St. Paul & the Broken Bones: Sea Star

This is the first single from the Alabama band's upcoming album, Angels in Science Fiction. Bandleader Paul Janeway says it was inspired by a fable about a man who picks up a starfish on the beach and tosses it back into the sea. A passerby points to many other washed-up starfish and tells him "you’re not going to make a dent in this." The man replies "I made a difference for that one." Says Janeway: "I hope that the moral is one that I teach my child: ‘Try your best to make a difference, starting with the people that are around you.’"

Hannah Jadagu: What You Did

Following her debut EP, released by SubPop when she was barely out of high school, this Texas native will release her first full-length album this spring. Stereogum calls this single "crunchy and satisfying, a blast of fuzz accompanying Jadagu insistent chorus of  “I know what you did.” 

Northlake: Falling Out of Fashion

Guitarist Dylan Ackelbein, originally from Fleetwood, U.K., and bassist Devlin Manning from Dallas started out playing together around the Dallas/Fort Worth area. They met Austin DeLoach working at a local studio, and in 2020 asked him to join as their singer. Rounding out the group is drummer Josh Street, who grew up in Charlotte, N.C. As diverse as their backgrounds are the influences they cite - from Led Zeppelin, King Crimson and Pink Floyd to The 1975, Clairo and Harry Styles. This single is the first of theirs to reach our ears.

Daughter: Party

Another single emerges from the London trio's upcoming LP Stereo Mind Game. This song is described as "recogniz[ing] that that in order to maintain relationships with others, we must first make peace with ourselves. [It] recounts the place that Elena Tonra got to before deciding to give up alcohol." The lyric speaks of being afraid of getting so drunk at a party that the singer might forget "The worst night of my life / or even worse, the best."
