While Olympic Ayres may not have the ability to hold back time (even their electropop powers have limits), the Australian duo is bringing back a taste of the season’s sunshine with their new EP, Leisureplex. (via Listen: Olympic Ayres – Leisureplex | MTV IGGY)

For Throwback Thursdays we are posting classic interviews from the Under the Radar print archives to our website. Under the Radar used to keep its print articles exclusive to the print magazine and so there are a lot of older articles that aren’t to be found on our website. For this Throwback Thursday we revisit our 2010 article on Florence and the Machine (aka Florence Welch). The article was our second print article on her, ran in the Best of 2010 issue, and centered on her crazy year since the release of her 2009 debut album, Lungs. A year later she released her acclaimed second album, Ceremonials, and we hope we won’t have to wait too much longer for her third effort. Read on as Welch discusses Lungs, her amazing 2010, rabid fans, still living in her family home, and how her mom doesn’t quite think this music thing will last.

When they introduced themselves back in 2012 with the release of their first single “Cocoa Hooves,” Glass Animals set their sights on exploring the darkest bits of life through a fractured, R&B-infused pop lens. (via Glass Animals: Pop with a Treacherous Undertow | MTV IGGY)

Over the years, Anthony Gonzalez has all but perfected the art of the anthem. So when it comes to creating an effortless blend of shoegaze, post-rock, and electronic elements, chances are you’re not going to do much better than an M83 tune.

Al Spx is busy packing for a tour as she speaks. The Cold Specks frontwoman (and sole member) admits that she’s feeling “fresh and happy” about the prospect of heading to Berlin for the first in a string of shows. Still, the self-described pessimist isn’t feeling beyond combining folding clothes with a bit of brutal honesty. (via Cold Specks: Lone Wolf :: Music :: Features :: Paste)

Ballet School’s music offers us a shimmery version of reality — where we’re all just a bit more attractive, and everyone is covered in taffeta and dancing together under a twirling disco ball. (via Ballet School Puts Pop through a Heavenly Prism | MTV IGGY)

Kimbra will tell you she thrives on being surrounded by an onslaught of ideas. It’s a confession that she backs up in conversation, showing equal enthusiasm for an eclectic assortment of artistic heroes (Gaudi, Dali, Madonna, Kate Bush) as she does for her home base — an urban farm located in Los Angeles’ Silver Lake neighborhood that also houses twenty chickens and eight sheep.
