South London’s Moreish Idols arrived fully-formed last year with the absurdist smarts of “Speedboat” and the contorted thrill of “Hangar”, two highlights from a debut EP for Speedy Wunderground, “Float“, that was packed full of them and saw international support from the likes of Stereogum, The FADER, NME, BBC 6 Music and more.

Earlier this month they shared their first new material of 2023 with the acclaimed “Nocturnal Creatures”, a woozy slice of arch indie-pop that demonstrated an already tight songwriting team growing only stronger. Today they share the second single from fruitful new sessions with producer Dan Carey in the form of “Between These Ears” playing on the more esoteric persona of the band, with a playful, near spoken-word vocal, prominent clarinet and a loose feel that fits the explorative nature of their output so far.

Never ones to be pinned down, the band say on the themes of their new single: “Between These Ears is a silhouette of someone not quite at home anywhere, wading in the mud, somewhere in-between making and missing the point.”



Moreish Idols are:

Jude Lilley – Guitar and Vocal
Tom Wilson Kellett – Guitar and Vocal
Caspar Swindells – Bass and Backing Vocals 
Solomon Lamey – Drums and Backing Vocals
Dylan Humphries – Bass Clarinet

The band will play a couple of festival shows in support of their 2023 material, with further dates set to be nnounced soon:

16.04 – Outertown Festival, Bristol
0.06 – Brighten The Corners Festival, Ipswich
