The Playlist: Electric Soft Parade/ The Boy Least Likely To/ Cold Cave
Electric Soft Parade
Brother, You Must Walk Your Path
Re-emerging after a six-year break, this is the first single from the band's forthcoming fourth album IDIOTS. The White brothers' harmonies are as tight as ever, but other than their sombre decadence, this is a stripped-down, minimalist return.
The Boy Least Likely To
Climbing Out of Love
Another indie-pop duo making a comeback (above), TBLLT explore upbeat pop that brings to mind Bright Eyes and Belle and Sebastian. Clearly the feel-good hit of the spring.
God Made the World
Considerably darker than The Boy Least Likely To, Cold Cave hook this new release around post-punk guitars and a beat reminiscent of New Order or Depeche Mode.
Crawling on Bruised Knees
This rather excellently named song is a brutal and emotionally weighty slice of experimental pop that clocks in at around six and a half minutes – 22-year-old frontwoman Margaret Chardiet describes it as an “exorcism”.
Lust for Youth
Chasing the Light (Anthony Naples remix)
Naples, a young Brooklyn-based producer, really gets his teeth into this remix, transforming it from a light, synth-led track, into a muscular Berlin squat party anthem.
