Fenech-Soler released their new album ZILLA on February 3rd on So Recordings. Three years in the making, the band’s third studio album is chock full of bold, shimmering pop gems, which herald a thrilling new chapter for brothers Ben and Ross Duffy.
Loaded with personality and pockets of experimentation, ZILLA is inspired by disco, old soul vocal harmony groups and an unwavering love of pop music. While previous albums have seen the duo collaborate with the likes of Tim Goldsworthy and Starsmith, this album is much more organic, with most of it self-produced.
Fenech-Soler have been touring for the past couple of months, bringing their new tunes to fans across Europe the US. More dates have just been announced in April in May, check out their official site or Facebook for more info. Buy the new album now on

Australian electronic duo Nocturnal Tapes has only been working together for about 2 years but their musical palette is quite broad, with influences ranging from hip-hop, blues and funk, to psychedelic, electronic and dance. New single “Pieces” sees them significantly progress by introducing Tech-house influences, drawing inspiration from Caribou, The Presets and LCD Soundsystem.
With solid 4/4 beats, escalating arpeggio and vocals awash with reverb, the track shines a different light on the band’s creative depth but their pop sensibilities and smart approach to songwriting still remain intact.
Bonus track: “Superficial Light”
With more new material up their sleeve, this is an act to keep an eye on in the coming months. Find out more on their Facebook or SoundCloud. Buy the music on
