Pale Waves
Television Romance,
Dirty Hit

Fresh from the Dirty Hit stable, this is lovelorn, full of scratchy guitar and contains a killer chorus. Pale Waves are having quite a year.

Contact Elliot Mitchell

Car Seat Headrest
War Is Coming (If You Want It),

Will Toledo returns with an explicit, bare bones indie-rock song about “not murdering people”. His message is as pure as the riffs are ragged.

Contact Noam Klar

In The Morning,
Black Butter Records

The dance trio have got a real banger on their hands: this is already blowing the minds of unsuspecting Disclosure fans everywhere.

Contact Karim Khan

Dead Pretties
Big Score Records

Here are London trio Dead Pretties, with a bassline caked in muck and scum and a chorus that bounces like a rusty jack-in-the-box.

Contact Matthew Fogg

Chief Of Tin,
Weird World

Romy Xeno moved to the UK from South Africa at 16 and weaves influences from her travels into this trippy debut for Weird World.

Contact Aoife Kitt

Miley Cyrus
Younger Now,

“Change is a thing you can count on”, sings Miley, getting all introspective on the title-track for her new record, which drops September 29.
