The Magic Gang
How Can I Compete,
An indie-rock song that grooves, shuffles, clatters and even comes with bonus “la la la”s. The Brighton mob’s latest is one of their strongest yet.
Contact Andy Prevezer
Wrought from piano and distinctive, eerie vocals, the New Zealander’s first track for 4AD is all about suspense and drama. It’ll make you shudder.
Contact Annette Lee
Jay Kay is back, and not with the Transformers-style science project his initial teaser video suggested. This is lively, and in no way tragic.
Contact Tanya Keogh
Skeleton Key Records
Enjoy this muddy, weird new single and then see the Salford band live. They’re touring through February, March and April.
Contact Chris Latham
This crisp, thumping new single from the Danish trio, out now, will be a real treat for fans of MØ, Haim and almost annoyingly catchy pop choruses.
Contact Susie Ember
Rolling drums and a bristling vocal show a fuller side to the Bath songwriter than last year’s minimal and altogether sadder Blue EP.
Contact Iris Herscovici
Major Toms/Asylum Records
Jaded by January and fed up with February, Anne-Marie returns with a pop sizzler that serves as a teleport to an 18-30s boat party.
