Dean Phillips – Just Kids

Out on July 10th, Dean Phillips’ “Just Kids” is a symphony of ethereal imagery. Phillips’ vocals are simply charming and really excel on this track. No heavy production or thumping drumbeats overtake his charisma, “just kids out on the run”. With a narrative that echoes that of Anne Marie’s “2002” and Sheeran’s “Castle on The […]

Deepshade – Soul Divider

With tones crossing from Doctor Who to Jurassic Park – this track is not one to miss! The music video incorporates elements of grunge, punk textures, and maddening red lighting. The reverb is utilised perfectly on the vocals, fitting in with the well-timed cuts of the video. Catchy, bass throttles and footage of the band […]

Future Animals- Last Summer

The bubbly, catchy beat that opens the track is then encompassed by angelic synths. Ibiza vibes surround “Last Summer”, “broken but hoping that one day we’ll meet again”, perhaps detailing a lost, summer romance that we become fond of. It is clear to see why Future Animals has over 2 billion streams already as they […]

Where You Gonna Sleep Tonight – Dan Moxon

The storytelling aspect of this song is coherent and effortless, with the title of the track having a variety of uses. These range from desperation, to annoyance and to pain.

Drug Dealer -Mike Riley

“Drug Dealer” is a country and folk fan’s heaven of a song (aka yours truly). The simple yet calming production, the effortless storytelling that forms your own version of a “s****y one store town” and how hopeless and despondent it can be when everyone around you seems to know what they are doing; a rulebook […]

Fuzzwalker – Hazy

“Tell me about the dreams you had last night”; the track opens as an ode to both Britpop whilst frequently flitting between indie and rock; or all three. The crescendos build fantastically, the vocals are delightful and the backing music slides from raucous to smooth, especially in the bridge where the effects on the vocal […]

Rosa – I Should Have Known Better

With an opening howling, technical sound that leads into an array of exciting riffs and distinctive vocals, “I Should Have Known Better” is not a track you want to miss out on this summer. “I know you think you’re so pretty, that’s cause you are” and a range of similar lyrics convey the idea of […]

Freddie Future – Like It Never Happened

Are you tired of the same old tunes the radio is smashing out? You know the ones I’m talking about. The ones with too much reverb and autotune that makes you want to pull your hair out. Well, if that is what you are looking for then look no further. I present to you the […]
