As Airwaves ’15 closes in, we’ve been keeping a watchful eye on some of the incoming bands you might be interested in seeing. They keep releasing new music like there’s no tomorrow! But there is probably a tomorrow. So don’t worry too much about that. It’s not good for you.

Beach House released their second album in as many months, entitled ‘Thank Your Lucky Stars‘, last week. Here’s a track from said album, called ‘One Thing’, performed live on US TV last weekend.

SOPHIE released a new single last week too. It’s called ‘Like We Never Said Goodbye’, and it’s a typical SOPHIE hi-NRG future-bubblegum-rave number that sounds like Aqua on a drug that hasn’t been invented yet.

Battles put out a new video for the standout track of their recent LP ‘La Di Da Di‘. This is gonna be great live. But it clashes with so much! Fuck!

LA Priest put out a new collaboration with Lxury last week. With almost 72,000 views already, his on-trend electronic pop must make him one of the most popular priests playing the festival.

Finally, here’s something a bit more indie for those of you who love fuzzy guitars — Tuff Love popped out a new single last week via Lost Map Records.

Hope you enjoyed the list. And if we missed something from your favourite Airwaves band, feel free to comment or tweet us at @RVKgrapevine. Onwards! Airwaves!
