Moreish Idols Tease Lock Eyes And Collide With Chum

South London’s Moreish Idols today announce their much-anticipated second EP, Lock Eyes And Collide, will be out 28th April on limited 12″ vinyl and digital release from Speedy Wunderground. Pre-Order HERE. They also share a final single from the Dan Carey-produced upcoming EP, Chum, 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:

Moreish Idols (Ollo Weguelin)

Moreish Idols (Ollo Weguelin)

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.”

Since the start of the year Moreish Idols have released both the arch recent single Between These Ears and the acclaimed Nocturnal Creatures, a woozy slice of indie-pop that demonstrated an already tight songwriting team growing only stronger following the release of their debut EP, Float, which landed last year to acclaim.
