In this sometimes bleak post-LCD Soundsystem world, hope for the future now comes in small snippets, as we do our damnedest to follow what dem band members be up to.

Cue New Build--a London-based band whose members (Al Doyle, Felix Martin and Tom Hopkins) hail from the very likes of LCD, Hot Chip and Planningtorock. Working as a kind of collective, the group's sound is like an atmospheric dance party, with hints of clubby trance mixed with their oh-so-catchy beats! It's the kind of stuff that makes you want to be in a warehouse. With sequins. And sweaty people. In the best way possible.

The band's second release is due out early this year (now available for pre-order ova here:, with tour dates scheduled through the spring. You can listen to New Build’s track “Do You Not Feel Loved?” below via the band’s Soundcloud page. We're totes excited to see them here at the Mercury Lounge on March 13th and 14th, so do get yo' dance shoes on and get ready fo' the par-tay! The March 13th date sold out fast, but tickets for the 14th go on sale tomorrow at 12pm.

We will be there, disco balls in tow.
