This week's hottest new sounds...
Nobody (EGA Records)
Get to know Sharna Bass, whose hard-edged R&B is ready to go big. At once dreamy and disconcerting, Nobody is a brilliant taster. Debut EP Beautiful Chaos is coming soon.
Contact Livy Coare
No Time To Die (Darkroom/Interscope)
It already felt like Billie Eilish had taken over the world, and then she went and recorded a Bond theme. Right now, there are no limits for the 18-year-old.
Contact Annabel Crowhurst
Wait For Me (Parlophone)
In the wake of George, Tom and Lewis comes Jack Curley, a rising, rasping new songwriter turning heartache up to 11. Have Parlophone unearthed another star?
Contact Louisa Worskett
ARIZONA ZERVAS (FEAT. SWAE LEE)
Here’s a jolt for those who may have been relaxing into a post-Roxanne phenomenon slumber: Swae Lee has jumped on a new remix! Chapter two starts here...
Contact Abisola Oke
Cellular (XL Recordings)
The expansive opening track to Archy Marshall’s third King Krule album Man Alive! is quite some trip. The 2018 Mercury nominee is on the up.
Contact Leah Wilson
CHARLOTTE DOS SANTOS
Helio (Because Music)
Norwegian-Brazilian singer Charlotte Dos Santos is an intriguing proposition, fusing disparate musical worlds into a cosmic, singular sound. Because have signed a gem.
Contact Adrian Read
Lick In Heaven (Hyperdub)
Jessy Lanza hasn’t released anything under her own name since 2016, and this comeback is a blast. The dancefloor explorer’s pop instincts have sharpened.
