The tracks you shouldn’t be missing out on.
Queen Zee & The Sasstones – “Sissy Fists”
Jordan Mackampa – “Battlecry”
Soulful, gospel-tinged, folk-pop tune “Battlecry” is Jordan Mackampa’s newest beautiful offering. Taken from his upcoming EP, “Tales From The Broken”, the song is a passionate cry for people to stand up for what they believe in. As Jordan explains, “It was written to make people feel powerful in the face of adversity, comforted in times of isolation and brave in the face of change.”
CROOX – “Loyal”
Minimalist electro-pop is the name of the game for CROOX’s latest track, “Loyal”. With captivating vocals over a soulful R&B beat, the London based quartet are set to get everyone dancing at their festival appearances this year.
The Age of L.U.N.A. – “Coco”
West-London collective The Age of L.U.N.A. are back with “Coco”. Delicious R&B beats mixed with flawless and hypnotic lyricism make for a groovy and delicate rap track that you won’t want to stop listening to. Taken from their upcoming “Coco” EP, it’s an exciting glimpse of what we can expect from the enchanting group.
The Drums – “Heart Basel”
With the upcoming release of Abysmal Thoughts, Jonny Pierce and co have released an unassuming offering reflecting on unrequited love and Miami art galleries. “Heart Basel” is in the same vein as the “Summertime!” EP with muted guitars and wailing falsetto vocalisation coalesced alongside that trademark 80’s drum sound we all know and love. Praise be to Jonny!
Odesza – “Line Of Sight”
The glittering electro duo have returned with new music for the first time in two years. “Line of Sight”, featuring WYNNE & Mansionarir, is a cinematic slow burner revolving around a steady lead vocal, backed by intelligent production and driving beats is sure to appeal to both old and new fans alike. We are certainly hooked.
Toffe – “Painting Pictures”
Swedish artist, Toffe, has just created his first sugar-sweet synth laden banger, “Painting Pictures”. An indie-electro smash, we will be playing the track on repeat for a long, long time.
Miss World – “Buy Me Dinner”
A sarcastic take on modern dating, “Buy Me Dinner” is Miss World’s bratty and bold debut track. Describing her sound as “Madonna instead of Nico fronting The Velvet Underground”, it’s a witty and whimsical track, and we’re super into it.
Crooked Colours – “I Hope You Get It” (feat. Ivan Ooze)
Joining forces with Ivan Ooze, Ozzie trio, Crooked Colours, are back with “I Hope You Get It”. With Ivan’s signature vocals soundtracked by delightfully flowing guitar riffs and soaring synths, the track is an exciting look at what Crooked Colours have in store for their debut album, Vera.
Girl Ray – “Preacher”
North London babes, Girl Ray, have given us another teaser of their debut album, Earl Grey and we’re slightly obsessed. “Preacher” is a melodic indie-pop dream with a nostalgic flair that makes us want to grab a Danny Zuko lookalike and slow dance all night. Beautifully intricate, we can’t wait to hear more from Girl Ray.
Jamila Woods – “Holy”
Soul singer, poet and activist Jamila Woods returns with her spine tingling new single, “Holy”. Talking on the track, Jamila says, “I wrote ‘Holy’ to remind myself that my worth is not dependent on anyone or anything outside of me.” Mixing R&B tones and soulful beats, the track is a gorgeous and poignant ode to self-worth that you will fall in love with.
M.I.L.K. – “When You Feel Good”
Hailing from Copenhagen, Emil Wilk, aka M.I.L.K., is creating bewitching pop music that will make you want to get up and dance instantly. New track “When You Feel Good” is a sun-soaked synth-pop beauty, with melodies that will make you swoon. Talking about his upbeat sound, M.I.L.K. says, “Some people have described what I do as summery or dreamy. I don’t know. I just love things that stink of summer.”
Mat Hunsley – “Do You Need Me Near”
Mat Hunsley is fast becoming Newcastle’s answer to James Vincent McMorrow. Honest and emotive, his newest track “Do You Need Me Near” is a folk-pop fascination, documenting his feelings towards his close friendships. Completely bewitching, we can’t wait for what else 2017 has in store for Mat.
