Extraordinary Being (Virgin EMI)

Emeli Sandé's song for the new X-Men movie is a swirl of dangerous strings and big vocals. A timely reminder for a certain spy franchise working on its 25th film...

Half Man Half God (SharpTone Records)

Bulldozer rock and urgent electronics combine on this sledgehammer of a track heralding the band’s live dates. Moshpits, consider yourselves primed.

Never Fall In Love (Lucky Last Records)

A ghostly fairground carousel of a love song, this haunting track from the quartet is spooky yet beautiful in a way David Lynch would approve of.

Lead track from the Danish Second EP (following 2016’s First), this is a heady mix of smart beats, lush melodies and frontman Søren Holm’s unique vocals.

Contact Jon Wilkinson

Having bossed the anti-folk scene as Moldy Peaches, Adam Green returns from recent film endeavours with this beautiful, swooning solo heart-stopper.
