Buying a one way ticket to whatever tropical location Just A Gent is going to. Such a slick, spacey groove.

It's really cool watching Garage Sale develop with each release. We're hearing their shoegaze influences come to the fore and it sounds like a gloomy dream come true.

When you love rock operas but are midway through a True Blood binge watch. Wolf & Chain hoist the drama up high with this epic and theatrical punky burner.

Yoste really wanted to make us tremble and quiver with this one. Slow burning emotion and he delivers it beautifully.

Tender, slow moving stuff from Ray. He's in a reflective frame of mind and it's soothing to join him.

Piphemi's in her element doing this hushed lo-fi soul. The way that sample trills with the rising vocal? Perfect.

The way this guy's going I'm sure we'll be hearing more of him. Good work ethic, working with talented producers and he's consuming as much of the culture as he can and taking that influence into his music. It takes a minute to adjust to hearing someone so young coming through with this energy but remember that Laroi was only 14 when he came up too.

Arresting stuff with the stark and mournful production and GILBZ's vocal really lands in the chorus.

Saw Giveon mentioned on Kuzo's page so I had to have a suss. It's slow and gorgeous, showing a tender emotional centre.

Cooper mentions KIAN in the influences and even sounds a bit like him! Pure voice and an understated and emotive track to show it off.

This won me over with that heart-thumping '80s-influence production and the sticky chorus. All the people named Caroline who're tired af of Neil Diamond and OutKast need to get acquainted with Riley Cooper.

A well-realised dark pop journey from Ilka. The ascending sequencers that take this track home could fit into the Blade Runner reboot and the imagery of the songwriting is similarly dystopian.

Gotta appreciate how wild and wobbly GASM4SK can take a track when he gets his moment. The build up is great and then he hits that turbo boost.

All this talent on the one track? The production had me locked with the tinkly hyperpop concoction and then you get Sophie and company delivering the RNB back and forth.

Pretty epic turn from Dial Denial on this latest track. They pair some frenzied playing with a cinematic finish like 00s punk bands doing the Friday Night Lights OST.
