South London-based indie rock/alternative band Moreish Idols have released their new single “Chum“, and its accompanying video.
The song is taken from the Dan Carey produced upcoming EP, ‘Lock Eyes and Collide‘, which will be out on April 28 via Speedy Wunderground. Pre-order your copy here.
Chum is a slice of insistent, grungy noise-pop that pairs knowing melody to Sonic Youth-esque dissonance. Tied to a Sambu directed video, where a deranged TV presenter welcomes the band to his late night TV show hellscape to perform the single, they had the following to say regarding the themes to both their new single and the latest EP:
“‘Chum’ is our latest single, a sacred offering to the hungry sharks out there. It’s a bittersweet story about a pair of lost souls getting mad at each other.
Our new EP ‘Lock Eyes and Collide’ is born out of a shift in artistic approach. Focusing more on personal experiences and how people can change when they collide with life’s challenges.
We’ve tried to shed light on the strengths of each of our roles within the band with care and vulnerability, giving each of us a place to be heard.”
