Nathan Fake has shared a free stream of the title track from his Sunder EP and had this to say about the track in an e-mail;
“These four tracks are like snapshots captured in a single moment. They were all recorded on an old Marantz tape deck, Jupiter 6, broken Akai drum machine and a Yamaha Reface DX,” he explained.“Basically just hitting record and seeing what happened, not worrying about making mistakes etc. There are no post-edits – they are left completely as they were recorded – so they’re quite messy but I love that energy.”
The EP finds Fake taking more of an urgent approach that still retains the warmth and emotion of his last outing, 2016’s Providence. Sunder is out via Ninja Tune on February 23.

Bea Fletcher of Leeds quintet The Golden Age of TV had this to say about their single ‘Beast’, now streaming for free, in a statement;
“It’s telling a story from my childhood, during that cross-over period when I had to be more independent. It was little things; facing my fear of the dark or going to the toilet on my own without my mum standing outside the door. The change and stress manifested into dreaming and imagining a monster coming after me. I’d see it everywhere I went. It sounds a bit trippy. But I guess growing up is?”
