CHAMPS - 'St. Peters' [405 Premiere]
Hailing from the Isle of Wight, you may not have heard of CHAMPS yet, but after you listen to their latest song, the beautiful 'St. Peters', you'll never forget them.
It may seem like an exaggeration at first but I'm ready to go on hand by saying this is one of the best songs of 2012. Absolutely fantastic, building, amazing. You can hear it below (and replay it as well) and look out for the band's debut 7'', expected to be released on the 24th of September (you can pre-order the 7'' here).
Eaux's opening single from new EP, i, captivates immediately with standalone rhythmic drumming, before those sounds are amplified by the various noises that peek out at you ever so often. Sian Ahern's vocals are made all the more mesmerising by the initial rarity of them as she repeats the title 'i' over and over. The EP is set to be released on 19th November. [read more]
