Max Blansjaar – Life’s Too Easy
“Returning with a warming take on indie pop, “Life’s Too Easy” tells the story of being lost and how the world still turns even if you feel like it isn’t. As an arrangement, you can feel the ‘numbness’ that Max is feeling through the repetitive vocal melody.” Find out more about the track here.
Evie Irie – Bitter
“Off-kilter, glitchy, production complete with a hook that will easily embed itself in your head for days. This is certainly a grand entrance, to say the least.” Find out more about ‘Bitter’ here.
Reaperz – The Living Dead
“Featuring some intense riffs that make a more than solid base for Westland’s catchy vocals that will worm their way into your hearts and ears. ” Find out some more about ‘The Living Dead’ here.
Bdrmm – Question Mark

Bonne Finken – Down Down

Holy Magick – Even Though
“The Brighton bred outfit combine the intrinsic melodies of Talking Heads and Parquet Courts with the psychedelic fuzz of Mazzy Star and the simple, toe-tapping rhythms of The Kills for a track that at once sounds familiar yet fresh.” Find out more about ‘Even Though’ here.
Bad Flamingo – Fire
“Capturing a deft swagger with its slowly swaying rhythm, the masked, unidentified duo incorporate twanging plucks and smatterings of percussion to create a strange marriage of Americana and smooth R&B.” Find out more about the unique track here.
Jule Vera – AROUND
