Kyla La Grange
Powerful indie pop with trad-folk. La Grange's vocal intensity is reminiscent of Florence Welch and Ladyhawke.
Summer has a habit of bringing out the afro-beat bands. Boy Mandeville's take on the seemingly solar-powered genre is mixed with Belle and Sebastian-esque pop.
Noche Nada (A Lot From Me)
Ultra-preppy folk pop from Louisiana. Despite the huge, heavily layered production, a Mystery Jets/Laura Marling influence is detectable.
All The Young
Lad rock really is making a return. All The Young's big guitars and anthemic choruses won't change the world but are still worth a listen.
Shaun J Wright
Warm vocals and semi-mystical lyrics are a perfect accompaniment to the minimalist electro of Wright. Big beats, even bigger voice.
Prince-aping dance music with deep, fuzzy basslines and minimalist beats.
'Kids', by Manchester band Airship, features a hook borrowed from Placebo, the euphoric strings of Arcade Fire and Idlewild's chiming guitars.
Sleek electro-pop readymade for the festival circuit. Think Pet Shop Boys meets The xx.
I Told You Once
Scuzzy, old-fashioned indie currently exciting US labels.Reuse content
