Premiere: A New International – ‘Valentino’

Check it out now...

Name-checked by Stuart Murdoch, Glasgow’s own A New International do things their own way.

There’s a continental flavour to their songwriting, a sense of French sophistication or Mediterranean passion. Lush, cinematic artistry, the group have already built a reputation for themselves as one of Scotland’s most under-rated bands.

New single ‘Valentino’ drops on February 12th, and it’s a lush, ambitious piece of work. Almost operatic in tone, it sits quite outside almost anything else operating in British music right now.

Backed by some sumptuous visuals, A New International are a group who don’t want to hide away, who aren’t content to simply shuffle onstage. They’re a group with an identity, one that demands to be heard.

Dive in below.
