What's hot on our playlist

 

Worship

House of Glass

Heavy guitar pop mixing The Killers' disco beats with Muse-esque vocal theatrics.

Friends

I'm His Girl

One of the few indie bands breaking through, Friends' strength lies in their 1970s funk production, ear for a hook and singer Samantha Urbani's swaggering cool.

Jamie N Commons

Nina

The 22-year-old's raw, bluesy vocal may sound like a man three times his age, but perfectly suit this Dylan-esque, organ-driven track.

Joker ft Buggsy, Shadz, Scarz and Double

Back in the Days

This aggressive yet commercial grime number risks straying into US style hip-hop during the dramatised intro, but the lyrics and huge, obnoxious bassline are pure UK.

Toy

Left Myself Behind

Support slots with The Horrors seem a good fit for these self-assured shoegazers.

Peace

Bblood

With their melodic guitars, detached, echo-laden vocals and a rolling bassline, Peace sound like an afrobeat WuLyf.

Massive Attack vs Burial

Paradise Circus

Unable to grab a copy of the sold out joint single? Try this fragile yet menacing B-side.

Jodie Marie

On the Road

Classic country-tinged acoustic rock with heartfelt lyrics. The hippie spirit of Joni Mitchell is omnipresent .

Grimes

Oblivion

Dark theatrical pop, full of unorthodox twists.
