Singles for the Weekend 10/24

todayOctober 23, 2020


This week’s singles will set the tone for a well-deserved weekend. Kick it off with the sounds of Knuckle Pups, get sad with Julien Baker, and then get spooky with Uni to send you into your week.

Knuckle Pups – “Great Behavior”

Indie-rock outfit Knuckle Pups dropped their second single from their forthcoming debut record. With pretty harmonies and sweetly-meandering guitar, “Great Behavior” mixes softness with melancholy. The video that released alongside the song was created in seventy-two hours.

Mal Blum- “Nobody Waits”

On “Nobody Waits”, Mal Blum muses on the patterns of people in their life and accepting that for what it is.  The track follows Mal Blum’s 2019 Pity Boy and will appear on Saddle Creek’s Document series.

AWOLNATION ft. Grouplove – “Radical”

Grouplove lend their beach party lens to AWOLNATION’s “Radical”. The original track is from 2020’s Angel Miners & Lightning Riders.  The alternative giants’ styles combine for a fun take on the originally electronic rock song.

Julien Baker – “Faith Healer”

The angelic voice of Julien Baker graces us once more. After most recently creating music with Phoebe Bridgers and Lucy Dacus as boygenius, Baker is branching out sonically on her own again. Her forthcoming record Little Oblivions follows her two solo records in 2017 and 2015. The upcoming record is said to touch on her experiences with sobriety and graduating college.

Uni – “Predator’s Ball”

Take the “Monster Mash” and splash in Yeah Yeah Yeah’s “Heads Will Roll”, and you can almost imagine what “Predator’s Ball” sounds like. The track is accompanied by a short film-style music video that channels cult classics (Rocky Horror and Labyrinth are heavily referenced). Note – the video contains mature themes/images and will not be acceptable for all audiences. The typically glam-rocky group trades in their shimmery sound for a spookier vibe, fit for the time of year.
