 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:

“‘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. In a recent BBC 6 Music Roundtable on Steve Lamacq’s show said single was rated a glowing 9/10 by all three guests.

Their debut EP, “Float“, landed last year and saw international support from the likes of Stereogum, The FADER, NME, BBC 6 Music and more.


The band will play a number of festival shows in support of the new EP, and have announced a first headline tour for late May, starting at London’s The Lexington and ending at Oporto in Leeds.
