On The Radar 07/02/12

Whatever you do, don't go outside. It's cold. Real Cold. Stay inside and stick some tunes on instead ... New music this week from Pond, We Are Augustines, Lucy Rose and Chairlift.

Pond - Moth Wings (selected by Grim) - Moth Wings is the second single from Pond's fourth record Beard Wives Denim. The entire album was recorded over two weeks in a ramshackle farmhouse in Western Australia; Moth Wings is said to have, quite literally, broken the bands 'mid-recording cabin fever', and it's easy to see why.

Mixed by Kevin Parker (Tame Impala) and Rob Grant at Poon's Head Studio in Perth Beard Wives Denim is out March through Modular Recordings March 5th.

We Are Augustines - Chapel Song (selected by Neil) - Singer Billy McCarthy puts his heart on his sleeve in this beautiful song, which is as heart breaking as it is superbly delivered. Following the success of debut Book Of James, Chapel Song is picking up strong playlisting five weeks ahead of release; B-listed on 6Music, Xfm and NME, on the New To Q list, and receiving Radio 2 support from Dermot O'Leary and Jo Whiley.

Chairlift - I Belong In Your Arms (selected by Matt) - How did I come across this tune? Well I liked a. the band name and b. the image that went with it. Mix that together with the fact that I didn't take an instant dislike to the first 10 seconds and I have a soft spot for an elegant female voice and I was onto a winner! The track is beautifully catchy and superbly presented, the only drawback at the moment being I cannot find a "repeat" button on SoundCloud...

Lucy Rose - Red Face (selected by Kate) - Lucy Rose is an English singer/songwriter from Warwickshire. She contributed vocals on the Bombay Bicycle Club albums, Flaws and their most recent, A Different Kind of Fix. She is now embarking on her solo career and is tipped for the top! Listen to her current single, Red Face, which was released yesterday (6th Jan) via Fauna Records.
