London-based duo Young Romance have released their long-awaited debut album, ‘Another’s Blood’, out on Banquet Records. ‘Another’s Blood’ is a beautifully constructed 10-track epic that merges the powerful vocals of Claire Heywood and raw garage guitars of Paolo Ruiu to create something truly unique.

Maker ‘Move Your Feet’

Maker’s single ‘Move Your Feet’ will have you doing just that.

The track isn’t a brand new release, but that is completely irrelevant when it comes to being Flick of the Finger’s Record of the Week. The song was recorded at Leeders Farm, while being mixed and produced by the band and Nick Brine. A lot…
