Hook-laden and fuzzy – this lead track from the 'Teen Jamz' EP suggests Sam McGarrigle could be Brighton's answer to Ariel Pink.
Live on the Moon
Eat your heart out, Shangri-Las. The Swedish pop star does tragic 1960s-style pop ballads easily as well as the originals. Her slightly flat vocal adds a depth of naïve emotion.
Moody indie rock à la mid-period Arctic Monkeys. A fairly meat-and-potatoes affair, but catchy.
Stoosh ft. Suave Debonair
Bubblegum pop isn't quite as subtle as it once was. Gone are the lush strings, innuendo and platitudes; it's all fairly literal sex talk these days.
The spirit of the early 1990s is alive and well on this grungy indie-pop number.
Stay in Love
Chirpy upbeat house. Jaar has been around a while but his recent Glastonbury show was a real coming-of-age.
A heavily condensed piano sample and thin, repetitive beat drive this near-perfect, lo-fi dance track.
And Then End
This is about as dark as electro-pop gets. Inspired by the death of a bird and packed with atmospherics.
Just Your Type
Croydon-based teens making minimal 2-step garage.
