South London’s Moreish Idols arrived last year with the absurdist smarts of Speedboat and the contorted thrill of Hangar, two tracks lifted from their debut EP for Speedy Wunderground, ‘Float,’ that was packed full of them and saw international support from the likes of Stereogum, The FADER, NME, BBC 6 Music and more.
Earlier this year, they returned with Nocturnal Creatures, a woozy slice of arch indie-pop that demonstrated an already tight songwriting team growing only stronger. Now, they share the second single from fruitful new sessions with producer Dan Carey in the form of Between These Ears. The track plays on the more esoteric persona of the band, with a playful, near spoken-word vocal, prominent clarinet and a loose feel that fits the explorative nature of their output so far.
Never ones to be pinned down, the band say on the themes of their new single, Between These Ears: “Between These Ears is a silhouette of someone not quite at home anywhere, wading in the mud, somewhere in-between making and missing the point.”
