Bull - Eugene
New single from the staple York indie band, ‘Eugene’ sees the quintet embrace a softer side. ‘Eugene’ was originally released in 2015, but this is a newer version that has matured alongside the band. ‘Eugene’ was written from a place of boredom and frustration, which is evident in the track’s moody tone.
Elk - Yue
Taken from the upcoming debut album, ‘Yue’ is an atmospheric and claustrophobic ambient guitar track. Claustrophobic only in the best way, of course, and in a way that gives the track an otherworldly, dense feel. Elk’s debut album, Beech, comes out on June 28th.
L Devine - Naked Alone
A huge contrast in moods in this new single from rising pop starlet L Devine--‘Naked Alone’ sees a bright and funky bassline, with deeply melancholic lyrics. L Devine wrote the track years ago, but felt that now was the best time to release it; its maturity is clear.
LVRA - u dont have to like me
Debut single from the singer-songwriter, ‘u dont have to like me’ gently outlines the soundscape from the Chinese-Scottish artist. We hear breathy choral notes and plucky soft guitars, with trip-hop beats. The song is taken from her upcoming EP LVCID.
Manu Dia - Kids in America (feat. Panama)
Taken from the Spanish producer's debut EP Surface, ‘Kids in America’ showcases a sense of glitchy electronica. Manu says that the track is “about being young and embracing the experiences of your youth.”
Sfven - Paranoid
The jolty new track from enigmatic artist, ‘Paranoid’ is characterised by its quirky, rolling guitar instrumental and smooth vocal. There are elements of sparse electronic, giving the track a more unique feel.
Swimming Girls - 1 2 Many
Bristol indie band’s new offering from their upcoming EP, ‘1 2 Many’ is characteristic of the band, with shimmery keyboards playing with guitar chords and textbook indie vocals.
Tertia May - Twenty Two
Marked by Boiler Room as a one to watch, upcoming soul artist Tertia May sings of struggles of youth on new track ‘Twenty Two’. The song was written on her birthday, and shows a gentle jazz vibe with gorgeously soulful vocals from Tertia.
Vistas - Like An American
Scottish band Vistas have been enjoying comparisons to the Vaccines, even more clearly so with new song ‘Like an American’. This track sees an upbeat indie instrumental with anthemic vocals.
Walt Disco - Strange to Know Nothing
Running via a wobbly vocal and danceable instrumental, the uncomfortable and wonky new single from Glaswegian Walt Disco sounds like it shouldn’t work, but it does. The single comes after the performance at the Great Escape Festival, and outlines a future of strange pop for the five piece.
