national anthem are clearly a project to keep a weather-eye on. Flushed with their end-of-year successes with Haim and Chvrches, the boutique singles label have now secured the release of an ep by Aussie duo atlas genius. The song trojans itself has gained quite a bit of traction state-side, and the band will be releasing their debut long-player at the end of the month. A couple of days before that, however, you can get the uk release of the track on it’s own ep from the national anthem website.
If ridiculously expensive limited-edition vinyl releases are your thing (and they certainly are mine) then the na page is definitely one to add to your bookmarks, but you need to be quick – the Haim and Chvrches records are all sold-out, and I imagine the atlas genius record may go the same way in double quick time. This is indie electro-pop at its very best; a little slice of summer to stave off the hail and sleet.
