Let’s all go to Margate…

By The Sea


Moshi Moshi and Rockfeedback are set to join forces to host new festival By The Sea.

Taking place in Margate on November 14th, the event will utilise the newly re-opened Dreamland – an enticingly-named area that seemingly features a fully functioning amusement park, featuring rides, arcades and other adventures.

An all day event, the first ever By The Sea festival is set to be headlined by returning indie kingpins Foals. New album ‘What Went Down’ will be released on August 28th, with the band set to deliver something special at Dreamland.

The full programme for By The Sea will be unveiled across the coming weeks and months, with tickets due to go on sale on from Friday (August 21st) at 9am from Rockfeedback // Seetickets.

By The Sea takes place on November 14th.

Premiere: No Pain In Pop ‘The Bedroom Club Iii’

A preview of the label’s new compilation…

'The Bedroom Club III'


South London imprint No Pain In Pop has led a rather curious journey.

Focussing on breaking music and new talent, the label has uncovered all manner of exciting artists via its compilation series ‘The Bedroom Club’.

Previous instalments have included fresh material from the likes of Pariah, Warp signing patten, Karen Gwyer and many more, with the label casting an inquisitive eye over electronic innovation.

‘The Bedroom Club III’ contains six tracks, ranging from Sim Hutchins’ avant techno to the industrial landscape of Kepla. NTS mainstay Throwing Shade donates ’38 000′ while Selector’s Roll flirts with shoegaze ambience on ‘Almost A Gaze’.

Carby’s new cut ‘Speechless’ is a piece of stripped down UK funky, while closing track ‘Sout’ is another impressive offering from 19 year old wunderkind Jire.

Here’s an intro: “Solitude need not be a destination. What you’ll find here is the work of acts who use isolation as an escape hatch into vaster internal realms, zones for transmitting untethered from the mores and strictures of music scene etiquette. The tracks here are not ‘done things’ – instead, in bedroom retreat, working feet from where they sleep each night, the producers are free to conjure impressions of the club’s invisible parts. Those that loiter between its sweating walls, ceilings and pillars. Some hear purity, some hear slime.”

“Some of ‘The Bedroom Club’ sounds written in the dark hours beyond shut bars, while other moments seem to anticipate the club’s unifying noise and ooze with the wide-eyes found bursting most often from the desirous, waiting skulls of the underage. All of them, by inference, honour the value of the most private portal, where the digital air snares strike into can hold still-quivering cuts of ecstatic rib-meat as easily as they can harbour the chrome heart of some colossal jet. It’s the idea that counts—here are intimate ones, for you. Windows to auteured territories for you to prise. These are not ‘done things’.”

Check out ‘The Bedroom Club III’ below.

‘The Bedroom Club III’ will be released on August 21st.

Premiere: Queen Kwong ‘Get A Witness’

From her upcoming debut album…

Queen Kwong


Queen Kwong gets to the heart of the matter.

The Los Angeles artist – real name Carré Callaway – stopped by London earlier this year for a four show residency, a vivid exhibition of her startling stage show.

Returning to the studio with The Icarus Line head honcho Joe Cardamone, the pair worked from scratch, improvising one song per day.

With the singer’s debut album due for release on August 28th, Clash is able to premiere the video for recent single ‘Get A Witness’.

Simple yet dazzlingly effective, the monochrome visuals match the starkness of the music itself.

Carré explains: “‘Get A Witness'” is the title track on the record. I chose the song to be the title track on my debut LP because it’s one of the most personal and meaningful songs to me. I didn’t have time to really develop a concept for the video because we were on tour with Failure during the time it needed to be made. We shot it in a Motel 6 somewhere in Tennessee and we didn’t have much to work with. So, Hayden Scott (my drummer who is also amazing behind a camera) and I decided to just make it simple and beautiful which worked out really well because it let the song and lyrics be the main focus of the video.”
