The new Amy Rigby single ‘The Farewell Tour’ has been released.

Amy about the song: "I wrote the words and melody on a late night train from New York City: short story of a troubled relationship, filtered through the young people around me. That feeling towards the end where you’re touching every experience for the last time. Recorded in early 2021, I tried to redo the vocal when we were working on the album “for real” but the rough really tied in to the live guitars (me on acoustic, Eric on the celestial electric) and held all the regret and sadness, so it had to stay." 

Track is taken from the upcoming album 'Hang In There With Me' (out on 30 August 2024).

Levin Goes Lightly: New single 'Headbanging' is out

We are standing in front of the Pink Flamingo and cry in the rain. A solitary tear falls into a puddle reflecting the neon light. From a distance, a beat booms through the club's soundproof door and draws us back inside. Is it DAF or Liasions Dangereuses or something completely new? The vocals switch from German to English and the catchy refrain is: "Is it beautiful when it's sad?" It's the new LEVIN GOES LIGHTLY single Headbanging! Driving and hypnotic, a kind of cold wave that warms your heart. Shake it all off, go crazy, at the latest for the grand finale of this track. 

The new album will be released in autumn. Stay tuned!

Penny Arcade album 'Backwater Collage' is out now!

Hailing from a place of ancient mariners' secret coves and vast moors beaten by the wind and rain, Backwater Collage is James Hoare's first solo album under the name of Penny Arcade. You have most probably come across his washed-out blue eyes several times, in projects including Veronica Falls, The Proper Ornaments and Ultimate Painting.

Similar to Jack Name or Syd Barrett – only less psychedelic – in terms of songwriting and stripped back atmosphere, Hoare is sitting on the Velvet Underground's black-and-white sofa and gives his album a subterranean feel. At times restless but light-footed, deprived of any unnecessary effects, the record follows in the steps of a less noisy but just as raw and unadorned Jesus and Mary Chain.

New HELLSONGS single 'Calling Them Out' is out now!

Those who have a decent political compass could not have missed out on the political winds blowing the past years, all over the world in general and in Europe specifically. What once used to be is no more, and we who have grown up in a context characterized by a positive attitude in general to solidarity, immigration, equality and generosity still cant believe what is happening.
Each month passing by, new low levels are reached by people who call themselves both democrats and politicians. Obviously there are different perspectives on what to focus on when strengthening the pillars of a democratic society. Right now we are seeing a growing nationalism, the spread of racism and bizarre conspiracy theories.
At the same time there is a strong tendency of dismantling libraries, study associations, union rights, cultural schools, as well as continuous attacks on civil rights, the LGBT society, Muslims, Jews - you name it. Polarization is growing and its quite obvious to us who are feeding it.

Calling Them Out is HELLSONGS musical response to all that. Let’s at least be honest, no matter how nice suits you wear - fascism/racism always stinks.

You can stream the single now on all available streaming platforms.
