Banoffee announces second studio album, ‘Teartracks’

Singer and producer Banoffee has announced the forthcoming release of her second album, ‘Teartracks’.

Due for release October 8, the album features collaborations with PC Music’s Planet 1999, fellow hyperpop artist Perto and Charli XCX touring band member Ceci G. It will also include Banoffee’s earlier single, ‘Tapioca Cheeks’.

In a statement, the artist – real name Martha Brown – said the new album is for “people who just want to stay indoors and aren’t really willing to try and be picked up yet”.


“I want people to cry in the car listening to this, driving at night, in the shower,” she said.

“I want someone to think ‘I want to feel sad, I’m gonna put on ‘Teartracks’.’”

Alongside the album announcement, Banoffee has shared a new single ‘Idiot’, which she said was “about needing to stay indoors and be self-indulgent”.

“It’s about indulging in brattiness,” she said.

“[W]ith the help of my amazing creative team, I think we made a version of that’s really fun.”

Watch the music video, directed by Phebe Schmidt, below:

Parcels release joyous new single ‘Comingback’

Parcels have released their second track for the year, ‘Comingback’, along with an accompanying music video.

‘Comingback’ follows on from the band’s previous single, ‘Free’, which arrived last month. Following its release, Parcels shared a live performance of the track, filmed in the small Australian town of Silverton.

The song’s music video was directed by Oliver Rose, who has previously worked on several of the band’s clips as a director of photography. It sees the band members dancing and singing through part of the Australian outback.


Watch the video for ‘Comingback’ below:

In a statement, the band said ‘Comingback’ was one of the band’s earliest ideas following their last album, yet one of the last songs to be completed after being rewritten a number of times.

“When the time came to record it at La Frette, there was an arrangement worked out but no singing melody which we felt could match the furious energy of Toto and Pedro’s rhythms,” they said.

“Determined, it was written and rewritten many times, long after we finished everything else on the album, melodies and singers interchanged constantly.

“Eventually, Noah brought a new power to the verse as well as a message we could all relate to, and together we finished it the night before boarding the plane to Australia.”


The band’s last studio album was their self-titled debut in 2018. In a five-star review, NME described the record as “cheeky, timeless and devilishly catchy”. They’ve since released a new live album, and the EP ‘IknowhowIfeel’.

(hennemusic) ZZ Top have announced that bassist Dusty Hill has been temporarily sidelined from the band’s North American tour so that he can receive treatment on his hip.

“The members of ZZ Top, Billy, and Frank, would like to share that Dusty, their fearless Bass player, is on a short detour back to Texas, to address a hip issue,” shared the pair on social media on July 23. “They await a speedy recovery and have him back pronto.

“Per Dusty’s request, ‘The show must go on!'” With that directive, ZZ Top has put the services of Mr. Elwood Francis, their trusted guitar tech of the past two decades, into play with his slide guitar, bass guitar, and harmonica playing in full swing.”

“And with Elwood to our right, rest assured ZZ Top will deliver their good time, signature show”, adds Gibbons. “Billy’s big guitar, crushing drums from Mr. Beard, and Elwood securing the bottom end continues the delivery with those famous three chords we all dig.”

ZZ Top – who launched the 2021 tour at the Delaware County Fair in Manchester, IA on July 16 – played their first show with Francis in the lineup at the Village Commons in New Lenox, IL on July 23; the trek marks the Texas band’s first live shows since an appearance at the San Antonio Stock Show And Rodeo on Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2020.
