Dutch Uncles - 'Big Balloon' (British Sea Power remix)
Dutch Uncles and British Sea Power have released an exchange of remixes. Robin from Dutch Uncles has remixed British Sea Power's 'Keep On Trying' and Martin Noble from British Sea Power has remixed Dutch Uncles 'Big Balloon'.
"Martin and I met last year at the FAMLAB event in Manchester and we discussed the idea of a remix swap ahead of our new albums’ releases over several pints of IPA," says Robin Richards. "I'd already heard Martin's remix of 'Big Balloon' before I started on the 'Keep On Trying' remix and really liked the Talk Talk vibes they had channelled. I decided to again dip into 80s influences for our remix and arranged a Tears For Fears-esque, dramatic chord sequence to fit with the lead vocals, supplemented with some Italian house piano for good measure."

POLIÇA have dropped the video for their new single Lipstick Stains premiering via Noisey.
Directed by Adam Dunn, the video sees POLIÇA frontwoman Channy Leaneagh and choreographer Nkechi Njaka interpreting the thumping bass of Lipstick Stains through a modern dance routine.
Channy Leaneagh elaborates on the video direction:
"The video was shot in a small studio in northeast Minneapolis by director Adam Dunn using only his iPhone. I've always wanted to create a dance piece with my friend Nkechi Njaka, a choreographer and neuroscientist who has mentored me over the years in how to use meditation and movement as a live performer, and someone I really respect and am inspired by constantly. This was an opportunity to create movement with her in real time to a song that I care very much about."
Lipstick Stains is released alongside Still Counts for Record Store Day on Limited Edition White vinyl.
The new single sees POLIÇA collaborating with long time friends Boys Noize and Spank Rock. Boys Noize provides additional production on the languid, melancholic “Lipstick Stains”. While Spank Rock adds guest vocals to the corrosive electro-punk of “Still Counts” courtesy of a late-night studio session when Spank Rock was on tour in Minneapolis.
Vocalist Channy Leaneagh elaborates on the Spank Rock collaboration:
"Spank Rock is a rare lyrical gem and true musical artist of the damn finest quality. Naeem is one of my favourite people and artists and I'm sincerely honoured to have made something with him."
