Great to hear new stuff from Coast & Ocean. His key asset is that chilled yet emotionally-precise delivery, but he goes even better on this track with the high quality production and beautiful guest vocals from Alice Hills.

A very pleasing jangle that's so unexpectedly potent that it'll have carabiner'd itself to your jeans without you even realising.

This one deserves more love. Liking the mix of dark and light that comes through with the vocal.

I like how the pressure and passion boils over and Jason's vocals begin swerve out of control. It might sound a bit busy but love's gotta be a bit messy sometimes.

Leah's in control the whole way through this rolling wave of emotion. A slow burner that's worth smouldering along with.

Well, damn. This song is a monster! Not the terrifying type lurking in the shadows - I mean like some gargantuan beast of a thing that's so big it blocks out the sun. A monster!

Gracie May with a big track! This is showing plenty of promise and likewise plenty of confidence - it's strong, switched-on new school pop.

Sembari with the goods! Dude's developing a dedicated following in electronic circles, I reckon it's only a matter of time before that fanbase spreads wider.

Until the rest of the world steps up and realises how wonderful ILUKA is I guess we'll just have to centralise the ILUKA fanclub HQ to this corner of the office. She only writes good songs.

The Laurels sounding so full and well put together with the addition of Kat to the band recently. There's a nice ethereal quality on top of the dark, lean shoegaze sound.
