Weirdly enough, I just flew in from London two nights ago and maybe it’s the jetlag taking over but I definitely shed more than three tears listening to this beauty. What a perfect snapshot of the nuances of lost love.

Superbly crafted and utterly enchanting. There’s a real sense of intimacy that flows through this one and lends itself to waves of nostalgia.

This is one for the bass fiends. Seriously impressive execution, production so thick you would need a hammer to break through it, and topped off with that reality warping moment around 2.20.

I didn’t think it was possible for me to hate Connor Brooker more. Honestly, I really didn’t. It makes my blood boil thinking of how unfair it is that one person can be so god damn musically talented across such a wide range of flawless sounds/projects. But no, here we are. 2018. With Connor Brooker and his outrageously smart and catchy pop sensibilities back again for another year. Great.<...

WALLACE is doing things no one else is even attempting right now. With every release, WALLACE is poised, polished and silky whilst never compromising her sparkling character. We should all be more like WALLACE.

Better hop in the passenger seat real quick and buckle up because thando is going to take us for a wild ride this year! A starry number with rich, nourishing vocals and a seamless feature from Remi.

This is the song equivalent of the classic 90s American high school bad boy - a touch of grit, a dash of maturity, but ultimately a whole lot of heart.

Little bit late to the game on this one so I'm just here to echo everyone else's thoughts. I love how unabashed the delivery on this one is, the women you've mentioned are nothing less than exceptional, and it seems like you've reached a point of comfort in the Moaning Lisa sound.

Another beautiful slice of Feelds. Circle doesn't need any bells and whistles to make it shine, all it's strength comes from a gorgeous, delicate melody and James' humble vocals.

Freya is one of the most exciting artists going around lately and I couldn't be happier with this second offering. Breath and Chime exudes a gentle charm coupled with really sophisticated layering.

We’ve heard the haunting lone vocals and experimental melodies, now we get to experience the lighter dream pop side of Eilish. Every song is captivating in its own way, with pitch perfect vocals leading the way time after time.

Not even the lo-fi wash over Hearts could distract me from how searing this melody is. There's a lot of punch subtly packed in this one!

Helena Pop are not for the faint-hearted. You've got the double bass backbone, rapid rise and fall sequences, and a bunch of commanding vocal moments. There's undeniably A LOT going on in this 5 minute slice of folk-rock - yet the charm still trickles through. Good stuff.
