South London’s Moreish Idols arrived fully-formed last year with the absurdist smarts of “Speedboat” and the contorted thrill of “Hangar”, two highlights from a 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 month they shared their first new material of 2023 with the acclaimed “Nocturnal Creatures”, a woozy slice of arch indie-pop that demonstrated an already tight songwriting team growing only stronger. Today they share the second single from fruitful new sessions with producer Dan Carey in the form of “Between These Ears” playing 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 is a silhouette of someone not quite at home anywhere, wading in the mud, somewhere in-between making and missing the point.”

Speedy Wunderground are currently celebrating their 10th Anniversary with the release of a limited boxset “The Dubs: Volume 1” featuring label head Dan Carey’s dub remixes of Speedy singles from the likes of black midi, Melt Yourself Down, Black Country, New Road and Loyle Carner & Kae Tempest among others.

The label will also promote a 10th Anniversary show taking place at Village Underground on Saturday, September 15th from 8pm to 3am. It will feature a variety of performers who are currently or previously have been signed to the label, as well as DJs and other special guests.
