The Drums


Those who fell for the charms of The Drums' debut won't be disappointed with this taster of their second record: it's more of the same delightful surf pop.

Jenny and Johnny


Sweet harmonies from the indie-rock duo Jenny Lewis and boyfriend Johnathan Rice.

Caged Animals

Girl on Medication

The first single from the New Jersey quartet, a hazy, reverb-soaked ode to an over-opiated young lady that promises exciting things from these newcomers.

Little Dragon

Ritual Union

Big Boi loves them and they've collaborated with Gorillaz. The electro-pop gems of the Gothenburg outfit's upcoming album should gain them deserved success.


Natalia's Song

Futuristic dance-oriented dubstep with minimal fragmented vocals from the exciting London-based producer.

The Horrors

Still Life

Channelling Echo & the Bunnymen, The Horrors scale new heights with this Radio 1 A-listed single and a Top 10 album waiting in the wings.

The Naked and the Famous

Young Blood

The perfect summer feel-good hit from the New Zealand synth-pop five-piece.

Clap Your Hands Say Yeah

Same Mistake

The most melodically accessible track yet from the band's third album, out in September.
