What's hot on our playlist
House of Glass
Heavy guitar pop mixing The Killers' disco beats with Muse-esque vocal theatrics.
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
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.
Left Myself Behind
Support slots with The Horrors seem a good fit for these self-assured shoegazers.
With their melodic guitars, detached, echo-laden vocals and a rolling bassline, Peace sound like an afrobeat WuLyf.
Massive Attack vs Burial
Unable to grab a copy of the sold out joint single? Try this fragile yet menacing B-side.
On the Road
Classic country-tinged acoustic rock with heartfelt lyrics. The hippie spirit of Joni Mitchell is omnipresent .
Dark theatrical pop, full of unorthodox twists.
