Track Of The Day: Anteros – ‘Love’

Our eyes and ears are blossoming in to heart shapes at the “effervescent pop” sounds on Anteros‘ latest single ‘Love’. Produced by Charlie Andrew (Alt-J, Marika Hackman, Bloc Party), The London-based band channel Blondie and The Cardigans on their new ode to the all-encompassing universal emotion.

‘Love’ follows on from Anteros’ previous single ‘Bonnie’, which will be released on vinyl as a AA-side in Flying Vinyl’s December boxset. Speaking about the track, frontwoman Laura Hayden says: “Everyone is so scared, the world is so fragmented. Love is self explanatory, really, in the general sense of the word. It’s about putting LOVE first: before race, before fear, before hate, before greed.”

This year, Anteros have played sold out shows alongside Two Door Cinema Club, Sundara Karma and Blaenavon, made a splash on the pages of NME, Sunday Times Culture and Vogue and begun work on their debut album, due for release next year.

Listen to ‘Love’ below.

‘Love’ is available digitally now. Follow Anteros on Facebook for more updates.

Track Of The Day: Anteros – ‘Bonnie’

A staple of their live set from their very first shows, ‘Bonnie’ has proven to be an instant crowd-pleaser among Anteros’ loyal following. The track is a call to arms for women and girls, asking them to stop competing against each other and unite in the face of adversity and intense media scrutiny.

“We wrote ‘Bonnie’ about the pressures of being a girl in a world of people who never seem to be happy with what they have,” explains Anteros’ frontwoman Laura Hayden. “It’s time to break away from that, to love and accept ourselves. To stop comparing ourselves to each other and work together. ‘Bonnie’ is our tribute to girls.” Produced by Charlie Andrew (Alt-J, Marika Hackman, Bloc Party), the band’s new track is a polished, defiant effort to unite the girls that Laura speaks about.
