The Music Week Playlist: June 19, 2017

Wolf Alice
Yuk Foo,
Dirty Hit

A two-minute screamfest that’ll leave you bruised and bloodied signals the return of Wolf Alice. Second album Visions Of A Life drops in September.

Contact Adrian Read

Miley Cyrus


Released in celebration of Pride Month and calling for social change, this has its head and heart in the right place. Also, it’s karaoke-suitable.

Contact Sarah Hall

Sigala (feat. Ella Eyre)

Came Here For Love,
Ministry Of Sound

Here’s one for when nothing other than a huge R&B vocal and a sun-splashed pop house beat will do. Ideal for climactic TOWIE scenes, then.

Contact Matt Learmouth

Future War Bride
Gloves Off,

The Copenhagen band’s poppy take on psychedelia offers a bright counterpoint to the city’s darker punk bands, so turn that frown upside down.

Contact James Sherry

Sheer Mag
Need To Feel Your Love,
Static Shock Records

Cuddle up to the title-track from Sheer Mag’s debut, which softens their punk snarl with palpable desire. The guitars still shred, of course.

Contact Liv Willars

Away Away, 
XL Recordings

The Cuban-French sisters’ comeback is here to lift your spirits, doing so with a combination of floating harmonies and some pretty serious percussion.

Contact Leah Wilson

Lil Peep

Benz Truck,

This heavily tattooed 20-year-old emo rapper is an intriguing pop prospect. Not least due to tracks like this, which mopes along nicely.

Contact Louise Mayne
