Death Cab for Cutie are releasing a new album this August and we don't know a whole lot about it but today they’ve shared a snippet of the first single off the record. The 33 second teaser was posted on Twitter, along with the words “Watch this space.” The song is titled “Your Hurricane.” The band's last album was 2015's Kintsugi. Death Cab for Cutie will play two shows at the Paramount Theatre on Saturday, June 23 and Sunday, June 24 to celebrate Paramount’s 90th anniversary. [ The Line of Best Fit ]

Toronto veteran indie band Stars have shared a new song called “One Day Left.” The sweeping single follows March’s “Ship To Shore” and just last year the band released their latest album There Is No Love In Fluorescent Light. “The last 12 hours you spend with someone you love might as well not exist. You are looking at a ghost,” says Stars about the single. “Maybe you have fucked a hundred times, maybe you just met. But if you are in love with them, goodbye hits like poison. You are in the hotel room. You know it’s almost over. You know it has to be. The city rages on outside. But in there lying next to them with all your clothes on and your bags packed, listening to them breathe, time stops. Why won’t the city have some heart and stop while you say goodbye? This song is for everyone who has a fucked up love affair this summer. It might not feel like it now, but….one day you’ll sit in a bar somewhere alone and realize; the pain was worth it.” Stars will play the Neptune on Wednesday, June 13 with Shamir. [ BrooklynVegan ]

The Internet have unveiled a video for “Come Over,” the recently released single off their upcoming album, Hive Mind. The clip, directed by frontwoman Syd, sees her trying to lock down a girl she’s romantically interested in, while we see the rest of her bandmates in different color-coded rooms with their romantic partners. “Come Over” is the second single off the album, following “Roll (Burbank Funk).” Hive Mind is out July 20 via Columbia and follows 2015’s Ego Death.

British musician Anna Calvi has announced her third solo album, Hunter, and shared the lead single, “Don’t Beat the Girl Out of My Boy.” The song examines gender and how children at a young age are conditioned to conform to gender stereotypes. "It's a song about the defiance of happiness. It's about being free to identify yourself in whichever way you please, without any restraints from society,” says Calvi. It comes with a video directed by William Kennedy with choreography by Aaron Sillis, who’s previously worked with FKA twigs. Calvi’s last release was 2014’s Strange Weather, a covers EP with David Byrne. [ Under the Radar ]
