In the previous couple of years, Speedy Wunderground has been on a tear, serving to gasoline the brand new wave of guitar bands popping out of England and Eire. Now, Dan Carey has discovered one other new signing. The most recent group to hitch the Speedy Wunderground household is Moreish Idols, a five-piece initially hailing from a Cornish coastal city and now primarily based in London. Going by their new single “Speedboat,” Carey hasn’t misplaced his contact.
“Speedboat” is Moreish Idols’ debut on the label. Right here’s what frontman Jude Lilley needed to say about it:
After I was about 18 I finished off in Venice with some mates after a competition. One sizzling afternoon in our grubby garments, we managed to discover a place doing pizza slices and beer for a few euros. Hidden away from the intimidatingly glamorous vacationers we sat on a jetty and tucked into our newly bought treats. As we had been chatting away over our lunch, we had been interrupted by a thumping kick drum echoing by way of the canal. The kick grew louder and louder till a white speedboat drifted at full pace into our view and pulled as much as the jetty. EDM blasted from the boat, as a slick, effectively constructed man in wrap round shades and a purple polo shirt inspected his huge pile of parcels. He bent down, grabbed a stack and hopped off the boat. After making the drop on the home behind us, he hopped again into the motor and shot off into the canals. That’s after I knew: I needed to be a postman in Venice.
Like a lot of the music we affiliate with Speedy Wunderground, Moreish Idols’ sound has an art-rock punk aesthetic happening, whereas the members additionally cite funk and dub as influences. Test it out under.
