Selected Reviews and Comments

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.

They return today with "Nocturnal Creatures", a woozy slice of arch indie-pop that shows an already tight songwriting team growing only stronger. Melodic, measured and another step away from the expected, a running theme for the genre-hopping five-piece so far, it's the first taster from a series of fruitful new sessions with producer Dan Carey and paired to a video self-directed by the band, with more material to follow across the year.

Characteristically cryptic the band say on the themes of their new single "nocturnal creatures can teach us to be more observant, in case they dig up your treasure and bury their bones."

Moreish Idols are:
