We got sent this new track by Fred M-G – you should drop it in your next DJ set

'There Is Loss And There Is Love'

Fred M-G has some good excuses for only now getting around to releasing his debut solo track. Some people might be familiar with him as part of Leeds band ZoZo. He’s also organised many of the Come Thru parties before that came to a close and helps run the Chunk space.

Anyway, a week or so ago Fred M-G sent us this track ‘There Is Loss And There Is Love’. It’s out today. Five years in gestation it’s a tear-stained Banger worthy of a capital B that builds to an absorbing crescendo. He says it draws inspiration from the likes of Hercules And Love Affair, Virginia, Hot Chip, The Rapture, Robyn and LCD Soundsystem. Listen and that’ll all make sense.

“Along the way, ‘There Is Loss And There Is Love’ started giving back to me and became a way for me to process instances of loss and love in my own life,” says Fred M-G.

Check it out below. There’s an accompanying video due next month as well.

And if that’s not enough. ZoZo, who also released a couple of tracks this week. So do check those out, too.

Support Loud And Quiet from £3 per month and we'll post you our next 9 magazines

As all of us are constantly reminded, it’s getting harder for independent publishers to stay in business, which applies to Loud And Quiet more now than ever, 14 years after we first started printing a magazine that we’ve always given away for free.

Having thought about the best way to support our running costs (the printing and distribution fees, the podcast and production costs etc.) we’d like to ask our readers who really enjoy what we do to subscribe to our next 9 issues over the next 12 months. The cheapest we can afford to do this for works out at £3 per month for UK subscribers, charged yearly.

If that seems like a bit of a punt, you can pay-as-you-go for £4 per month and cancel any time you like. European and world plans are available too, at the lowest rate we can afford.

It’s not just a donation – you’ll receive a physical copy of our magazine through your door and some extra perks detailed on our subscribe page. Digital subscriptions are available worldwide for £15 per year. We hope you consider this a good deal and the best way to keep Loud And Quiet in your life without its content, independence or existence suffering.
