2. Dean Lewis
Singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Dean Lewis pulls at your heartstrings with his hotly anticipated new single ‘Falling Up‘,
Talking about the track, Dean comments “I always thought I would be happy when I finished school or when I passed an exam, or I got a job or a promotion or if I went travelling and then I was like – ‘ooh, now I have a record deal, what if I have a big song? Then, I had a big song, and I was on the road for three years and when I stopped, I realised it had all passed me by and I was actually less present and more anxious and stressed than ever. I looked back on my life and at all of these points along the way and I realised that I’ve never felt any better, it’s always been onto the next thing, always moving.”.
3. Two Feet
Known for being the King of sex playlists (trust us on this), Two Feet aka Zachary William Dess is back with his new track ‘Never Enough‘. Give us music a listen and we think you’ll agree.
4. George Moir
If you’re obsessed with bedroom pop then George Moir is the artist for you. ‘Baked Beans‘ features on his new EP ‘Guide To Growing‘.
Talking about his new EP, George tells us ” ‘Guide to Growing’ ended up being about loads of stuff: relationships, mental health, ambition, poverty, work, stress, and more. They’re things I think so many of us run into, particularly as you step out into the world on your own as a young adult. There’s so much still to learn and experience, and I wanted to capture what it’s like to bump into this stuff when you don’t really know how to tackle it.
5. Perry Bancs ft. Gem Chantelle
Los Angeles-based Perry Bancs and New York-based singer-songwriter Gem Chantelle release deliciously seductive R&B tinged track ‘Alone Tonight‘. Add this to your Chill playlist
6. Japanese Breakfast
Talking about ‘Be Sweet’, Michelle tells us “After spending the last five years writing about grief, I wanted our follow up to be about joy. For me, a third record should feel bombastic and so I wanted to pull out all the stops for this one. I wrote ‘Be Sweet’ with Jack Tatum from Wild Nothing a few years ago. I’ve been holding onto it for so long and am so excited to finally put it out there.”
7. Billy Nomates
The fiercely talented Billy Nomates is back with her EP ‘Emergency Telephone‘. Listen as her voice hypnotises you and gives you shivers down your spine.
8. The Howlers
I Don’t Love You All The Time
London’s red-hot desert rock band The Howlers drop addicting new track ‘I Don’t Love You All The Time‘. Consisting of members Adam Young (vocals, guitar), Cameron Black (drums) and Guus ter Braak (bass), the three-piece draw influence from Afrobeat, West Coast psych music and some of the more timeless seventies records.
9. Jodie Harsh
Songwriter, DJ icon and reigning Queen supreme of international nightlife, Jodie Harsh, has shared the new visual for her latest single ‘My House’.
Talking to us, Jodie said “I wanted to get the whole British drag queen community together in one video as it’s never really been done before. We were all stuck at home at the peak of the second wave, so I got a lip-sync sent over from everyone! Of course, loads of the girls from the first two seasons of Drag Race UK are in there. I also wanted to feature queens from all corners of the UK, such as trans icon queen Juno Birch, bio queens Tete Bang and Heather Duster, and queen of transformations Charity Kase. The 61 queens combined make up the best of the best of the British drag scene in their own houses, for My House!”
10. Megan Mckenna
You may recognise Megan from The Only Way Is Essex or Celebrity XFactor. Now back with her new track ‘This’, Megan is blowing up the music scene with her passion-fuelled vocals and honest lyrics.
