Scotland's Neon Waltz impressed with their debut album, an enthralling mixture of song-rooted psych-pop recorded in studios across the UK.
Kind of a snapshot of their rise, the band have switched things up, trimming down their number as they seek out new challenges.
It's a revitalised Neon Waltz who entered the studio with underground kingpin Tarek Musa, overhauling their sound in the process.
New single 'Friends Who Lost Control' opens their account for 2019, a year that features headline shows, festival sets, and a support slot alongside Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds.
It's an ultra-catchy return, yet almost visceral in its approach, retaining the sound of their debut but distilling it still further, and adding some fresh elements.
The video has a curiously trippy feature, with the backwards-forwards effect following frontman Jordan Shearer as he moves through a nighttime city.
