“Sounding really great” – Huw Stephens (BBC R1)
“Isn’t that gorgeous… I’ve been listening to this loads recently” – Tom Ravenscroft (BBC 6Music)

The next single from Inwards' hugely well-received debut album is a digital double A-side showcasing the explosive, mischievous and nostalgic title cut “Diesel” (which has gained early BBC Radio 1 support from Huw Stephens), backed with deep, dark, drum-led odyssey “Ican Culture”. The single release will be accompanied by two special session videos, featuring live drums from Dave Morgan (of acclaimed experimental trio The Physics House Band). You can also look forward to an Inwards Guest Mix for Tom Ravenscroft (BBC 6Music) in the run-up to impact (date TBA).
Released in late April, the 'Diesel' album introduced modular synth manipulator Inwards in emphatic style, with a cracked, psychedelia-tinged energy and colourful sonic palette. The record pricked up the ears of tastemakers including BBC 6Music's Tom Ravenscroft, Steve Lamacq, Lauren Laverne and Don Letts; BBC Introducing (for whom he performed a live session), TRAX mag, Our Culture and Electronic Sound magazine. The last single “When She Flashes Her Smile On Me”, was crowned BBC 6Music Recommends Track of the Week, and has gained more than 75K Spotify streams.
