This week's hottest new sounds...
New Me (Island)
A New Year means a new Ella Eyre. That’s very much the message of this bouncy, dancehall-tinged new single, which signals the reawakening of a pop force.

Meg Remy’s work with US Girls is always engrossing, and the lead track from seventh LP Heavy Light is no different, powered by wandering guitar and brass.
Contact Annette Lee
This Is The Place (Insanity)
TG’s first new music since 2018’s debut Lighting Matches is an epic break-up lament that comes with a video soaked in cinematic bleakness. Happy days.
Contact Dave Palmer
BUGZY MALONE (FEAT. SKIP MARLEY)
Cause A Commotion (Island Records/B Somebody)
The Manchester MC pares things back slightly for a menacing, downtempo hook-up with Skip Marley that signals a shift in sound could be on the horizon.
Contact Shireen Fenner
Boring People (Warner Records)
This is one of those songs that’s brilliant based only on its title. Better still, it’s an instant L Devine classic: acerbic, funny and big on melody.
Contact Phoebe Sinclair
Dip (Speedy Wunderground)
These South Londoners are the latest in a line of indie types to link up with Speedy Wunderground. High vocals and melancholy mean they stand out.
Contact James Parrish
Me & You Together Song (Dirty Hit)
Flummoxing those still anticipating a Burial-influenced night bus album, The 1975 roll back the years on a lovelorn indie-pop splurge. Whatever next?
