3. girl in red
Body and Mind
‘Body And Mind’ is one of our favourites from Flavour favourite girl in red.
Talking about her new album, she said “if I could make it go quiet is an attempt to learn what it’s like to be human; to deal with the scariest parts of myself; to live with the pain of knowing I’m only flesh and bones; to be angry, broken and unforgiving yet still able to wear my heart on my sleeve; I’m shedding light on the darkest parts of my mind and I’m letting everyone in; if I could make it go quiet is me simply trying to understand what the fuck is going on.”
4. The Marías
With sultry vocals and a swanky rhythm, The Marías make you feel like you’re in a daydream. Now, all we need is an album.
5. Tai Verdes
You may know Tai from his insanely popular track ‘Stuck In The Middle ‘. Now back with his new track ‘A-O-K’, Tai set out to make everybody a little bit happier this year.
6. Swim School
Newcomers Swim School drop new single ‘Outside’. Drawing influence from a wide range of genres from 90’s grunge to modern indie and dream-pop.
Talking about the track, Vocalist & guitarist Alice Johnson said “Outside is based on the negative impact the toxic people have on your mental health and the moment you realise how toxic they are.
