South London’s Moreish Idols have released their latest track, Chum, the final single from the upcoming EP, Lock Eyes and Collide – which has been announced today, set for release on April 28th via Speedy Wunderground.
A portion of determined, grungy-noise pop that combines a knowing melody with Sonic Youth-inspired discordance. Speaking of the track, the band state:
‘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.
Accompanying the single’s release, the band have also shared its partnering music video – directed by Sambu, where a deranged TV presenter welcomes the band to his late-night TV show hellscape to perform their new single.
Moreish Idols’ second EP, Lock Eyes and Collide arrives alongside a physical 12” release through Speedy Wunderground, and follows on from the band’s debut, Float, which saw international support from the likes of Stereogum, The FADER, NME and BBC Radio 6 Music. Continuing about the EP, the band state:
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.

‘Between The Ears’ available now
Following on from the release of Nocturnal Creatures back in February, South London’s Moreish Idols have today returned with their latest offering, Between The Ears, the second single from a number of fruitful sessions with Speedy Wunderground’s Dan Carey.
Introducing the more obscure, abstract side to the band, Between The Ears features a playful, almost spoken-word vocal and conspicuous clarinet. Of the track, the band state:
Between The Ears is a silhouette of someone not quite at home anywhere, wading in the mud, somewhere in-between making and missing the point.
Since bursting onto the scene fully-formed last year, Moreish Idols’ debut EP, Float, saw the band win support from the likes of NME, Fader, Stereogum, BBC Radio 6 Music, and more, for its standout tracks Hangar and Speedboat.
In support of their new material, Moreish Idols are set to play a number of festival shows this Summer, with more dates to be announced shortly.
Recent single, Nocturnal Creatures, is a dazed slice of indie-pop that presents the strength in the band’s songwriting. The release follows on from last year’s debut EP, Float, which was met with critical acclaim.
Taking yet another step away from the expected, Nocturnal Creatures is the first track to be released from a series of fruitful sessions that strengthen their relationship with Speedy Wunderground’s Dan Carey. Speaking of the track, the band cryptically state
is the first track to be released from a series of fruitful sessions that strengthen their relationship with Speedy Wunderground’s Dan Carey. Speaking of the track, the band cryptically state
nocturnal creatures can teach us to be more observant, in case they dig up your treasure and bury their bones.
The single arrives paired with its accompanying music video, directed by the band themselves.
Moreish Idols are set to play a couple of festival shows in support of their single, playing both Outertown Festival in Bristol and Brighten The Corners Festival in Ipswich, with more dates to be announced soon.
