Leave The Planet – ‘How Does It Feel’

leave the planet-nowhere-b-sides

Back in March we helped launch Leave The Planet‘s ‘Nowhere’ EP, and last month the British dream pop duo unveiled the b-sides (available here). It’s another solid collection; you’d be forgiven for wondering why they weren’t combined to make an album, they’re that good. It also includes a re-working of their 2014 single ‘Unreleased Life’. It’s awesome to have more from Leave The Planet so soon after ‘Nowhere’, and a timely reminder to check out the EP if you missed it.

Leave The Planet – ‘Nowhere’ [EP Premiere]

leave-the-planet-nowhere

Nathalie Bruno and Jack Milwaukee formed Leave The Planet with a shared love of Slowdive, Felt and early Sarah Records acts. The East Londoners named themselves after a Galaxie 500 song and went on to release an impressive demo (selected by Fat Records), and several singles through Kanine Records. ‘Nowhere’ marks their first EP and features some stunning songs recorded over the past few years. The pair don’t overstate themselves, it’s a gentle and progressive EP that’s delivered with confidence. The combination of classic synths, drum machine and plenty of washed-out guitars makes for a late 80s synth pop sound, most evident on ‘Sirius B’ and ‘White Astra’, while ‘Surrender’ mixes it up with a new wave/jangle pop sound. ‘Seashore’ stretches their abilities again, proving that Leave The Planet are capable of carrying themselves into less structured territory, this (almost six minute song) is perhaps the hidden highlight. ‘Nowhere’ is one of the finest dream pop debuts I’ve heard in a while, highly recommended listening! Pick it up via Weiner Records from March 28 (pre-order).

Leave The Planet – ‘Unreleased Life’

leave-the-planet-unreleased-life-artwork

FatCat Records have featured dream pop duo Leave The Planet on their demo site and rightly so, their latest single ‘Unreleased Life’ is brilliant. The pair are influenced by the early Sarah Records catalog, Slowdive and of course Galaxie 500 (‘Leave The Planet’ being one of their songs). The Londoners (Nathalia Bruno and Jack Milwaukee) are sharing their tunes on Soundcloud and Bandcamp now. An impressive effort considering they formed less than six months ago!
