With everyone cooped up in their little quarantine bubble, it’s the perfect time to discover new artists and styles of music (whether you like them or not is a different story, but why not give it a go?!) So, we thought we’d share some new releases from the past week for you to dive into and start exploring…

Holly Humberstone, Falling Asleep at the Wheel

Anyone else just want an EP from this artist already? Holly Humberstone’s latest single is out, and it’s a good’n. Inspired by the work of Bon Iver and Phoebe Bridgers, Humberstone said this latest track “is about losing momentum and feeling like your emotions will slowly destroy the relationship you’re in and you altogether. I think the dark, wonky sonics define who I am musically, which is why ‘Falling Asleep At The Wheel’ is such a milestone track for me, and has taught me so much about myself as a musician.” Listen below…

ELIO, My Friends Online

As if ELIO could see the future, her debut single My Friends Online comments on the ups and downs of social media and is highly relatable at a time of self-isolation and self-reflection, a time of pandemic during which many of us are only keeping in contact because of the existence of the online world. Take a listen…

somegirlnamedanna, hello i am

22-year old Nashville-based Anna Balfany has released her debut single hello i am. “The amazing thing about being a songwriter is that when you share your music with strangers, suddenly you’re not strangers anymore. So all in all, I’m just really excited to meet people through a platform that we all love and get to share everything we have in common.” So, become less of a stranger with Anna…

Mt. Joy, Acrobats

Some calm within the chaotic world, Mt. Joy’s new EP Acrobats is the perfect escape from all that’s wrong with the world today. Acrobats is our favourite track from the EP, offering some anxiety-reducing advice in the lyrics “Realize your surroundings / Count five things in the room.” Described as “a song about walking away from the ledge during a panic attack”, you’ll want to take a listen below…

Jordan Mackampa, Foreigner

Kicking off 2020 with the release of this blinder of an album, soulful Jordan Mackampa has packed the body of work with meaning. One of our favourites, Care for Your Mother, is a beautiful song to the figure who played both parental roles, and got him to where he is today. Another favourite is Foreigner, the title track, which explores Mackampa’s journey of not wanting to lose his Congolese roots as a youngster in the Midlands. Take a listen…

Kahlla, Sense of Self

In a crazy world, made all the more hectic by the recent Covid-19 ~situation~, a welcome escape came in this new EP from London-based artist Kahlla. Favourite track? In the Morning. 100%. (Thanks to our friend Austel for the recommendation on their playlist!)

False Heads, It’s All There But You’re Dreaming

The East-London trio have released their highly anticipated debut album, after years of singles, EPs and amazing live shows (seriously, get to a gig once this Coronavirus lock-down is over!). Check it out below…

Låpsley, Through Water

After her 2016 debut album Long Way Home, Holly Låpsley Fletcher has taken time to regroup and four years later deliver a new album, Through Water. Our stand out track (so hard to pick!) is Speaking of the End. Check it out below…
