Dutch mavericks return with an absolute melter...

Dutch guitar thrillers Mozes And The Firstborn might well be on your radar.

Clash has rhapsodised about them in the past, part of a wave of underground talent flowing out of the Netherlands.

New album 'Dadcore' arrives on January 25th, produced by drummer Raven Aartsen with Chris Coady coming on board as co-producer.

Singer Melle Dieleson explains a little more: "Dadcore is a love letter to rock music. It's an ode to being in a band. After eight years we still sometimes play shows where only twelve people show up, there's no backstage and the fee is a case of beer and a place to crash. Nonetheless, there's four people up on that stage rocking out as hard as they can. That's Dadcore to me."

New single 'If I' is a righteous guitar melter, a sort of fuzzed out Dinosaur Jr. riff attached to a sunshine pop song, driven by helpless adolescent fantasies.

Melle explains further: "I see 'If I' as the counterpart of our last single ‘Hello', which was about going into the world and claiming your space by simply letting yourself be seen. 'If I' is about everything you do not want to show the world; all the things that you regret. This can be a certain emotion you have, a choice you've made in the past, a secret love that you've never been able to share with anyone else but yourself."

We've nabbed the video, a lo-fi shoot that recalls gritty VHS while sluiced with outrageous colour.

Tune in now.
