We’ve rounded up some of our favourite releases from the music scene and we know you’ll love them.
Fresh of the press, this weeks round-up includes Maggie Lindemann, Elyotto, Olivia Swann, Cian Ducrot and a few more.
1. Alex Tierney
Settle For (21)
22-year-old Irish singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Alex Tierney is back with his stunning new track ‘Settle For (21)’. Inspired by the likes Bon Iver, Clairo, The Japanese House, Dermot Kennedy and everything in between, Alex merges his catchy pop and gentlefolk songwriting sensibilities with elements of hip-hop and r&b production.
Known for his TikTok famous track ‘SugarCrash!’, The 17-year-old from Canada drops his new track ‘stalker‘. Talking about the track, he tells us “This song’s lyrics are about nothing in particular, just vague sci-fi struggles from another dimension…It sure sounds great though, methinks”.
3. Olivia Swann
You Want It (But I Don’t)
Following on from her last successful single ‘Gaslight’, she takes us deeper into the fallout & relentless pressure of her ex-girlfriend & those fresh faces that keep sliding into her Dm’s.
4. Maggie Lindemann
She Knows It
Punk rock/pop singer Maggie Lindemann released her new track ‘She Knows It’. Talking about the track, she tells us “I wrote this song about how I liked a girl who had a boyfriend. She would confide in me about how shitty he was and say and do things that would kind of lead me on but then tell me she didn’t ‘mean it like that’…so I was like fuck it, I’m gonna write about it,” said Maggie of the song. About the video, she said: “I wrote up the concept kind of right when we made the song. I instantly had a vision for it and wanted to give it a high school 2000’s feel but also keep it current and industrial and surreal spin from a normal classroom setting. I wanted to tap into my high school fantasy — haha.”
Decorated with colourful textures and floor-shaking 808s, the British Zambian artist calls on LA-based rapper Coi Leray’s dynamic flow for this sleek, precocious gem. Accompanied by its playful visual, the pair’s chemistry breathes new life into the track as they celebrate finding confidence in their femininity.
6. Cian Ducrot
Irish singer, songwriter, producer and classically-trained multi-instrumentalist Cian Ducrot dropped his track ‘Make Believe’ a month ago and we’re still obsessed. The rising star sold out his debut London show at Colours Hoxton on Tuesday.
