SLUG shares new single 'Dolly Dimple'

SLUG has shared his new single 'Dolly Dimple' - Taken from the upcoming album, HiggledyPiggledy which is out next week!

“With the rise of Trump and Brexit, it feels as if we've returned to a more 'greed is good' or Thatcherite era," says Black. "More and more people seem to be wanting to get into bed with this mindset."

""Dolly Dimple" is a song about the pornography of wealth, power and business in place of good family values and looking after one another. All dressed up like an late 70s-early 80s Bowie pop record.”

HiggledyPiggledy is available to pre-order now via www.slugband.co.uk on Limited Edition Yellow LP, CD and download.

SLUG has just announced a UK tour for April and May, he'll be supported by fellow Memphis Industries associates The Cornshed Sisters. Full dates below.

29 Apr – Glasgow, The Hug and Pint TICKETS

Haley shares new single 'Bratt'

HALEY (FKA Haley Bonar) has a brand new single "Bratt" - debuted this morning as Lauren Laverne's Just Added track on BBC Radio 6 Music - and you can hear it now.

"Bratt" will be paired with another new song, the as-yet unheard "My Wave", and released on a limited edition red 7" for Record Store Day 2018. And HALEY will be crossing the Atlantic to celebrate RSD with Lauren Laverne, performing live on a special show from Spillers Records, Cardiff on 20th April. The day after, Record Store Day itself (21st April) will see Haley head out on a helter-skelter tour of some of the UK’s best loved record shops, including Resident Music, Pie and Vinyl and Banquet Records.

Haley: "Bratt" was intended to be sung from a teenage perspective, appropriating that unsentimental attitude while simultaneously looking back at yourself at that age, all of the insecurities that went along with it, letting go of your self-judgement on the past."
