Since first twirling across our radar last CMJ, our hømegirl has been blazing a trail to superstardom and we're having a great time watching her star rise from the sidelines. And now, in a cosmos-perfectly-aligned kind of moment, she's teamed up with the one and only Diplo for a brand new sizzler called "XXX 88". The intro pops off like a twisted remix of Mario Winans "I Don't Wanna Know" before Dip boosts the grit and ups the ante, replete with brazen horns and siren shouts. Gamechangerrr.

Thief (formerly known as Thief Urban) is a new Australian producer slash songwriter you're about to get real familiar with. After arriving on the scene with a lights-out debut offering in "Closer" earlier this year, he returns today with an updated name and his debut single proper, "Broken Boy". Soul-stuffed with sinister hooks and dark, ominous synths, "Broken" channels the most addictive parts of Clock Opera and Metronomy like their long lost brother from Down Under. "Broken Boy" is out worldwide September 6th, enjoy the exclusive premiere below.

Attention world: our in-house supergroup, HAERTS, have their debut EP, Hemiplegia, out next month, and are currently on a match-made-in-heaven US tour supporting Washed Out. Still flying high on the back of debut offerings "Wings" and "All the Days", they've just unleashed an absolutely resplendent remix of the latter from Rochester heatseekers, Joywave. It's a tropical rocket that launches you into warmer climes, pushing the ambience to the background and giving Nini's vocals a whole lot of hangtime to shine center stage. The Hemiplegia EP is out September 24th on Neon Gold / Columbia, watch this space for more details.

Miami Horror are one of our favorite Australian bands to ever hit US shores, consistently blinding us with the sun-soaked brilliance of their psychedelic dance records and larger-than-life live show since they first hit the scene in 2009. So it's with boundless pleasure that we welcome them to the NG family with the rollout of their next single, "Real Slow", next month, followed by an AA-side 7" single on Neon Gold in November. After living the American dream and relocating to LA, the imported pop experts have tripped out into new territory with their sophomore album, and we couldn't be more excited to get behind it. It's some of their most personal material to date, and you can catch a sneak peek of things to come through an illuminating making-of documentary above. Something brilliant this way comes, preorder the digital single HERE and watch this space for more info.
