Sennen - Autopilot

At this special time of year, the minds of music fans everywhere are taken up with the all-important, all-consuming task of coming up with the definitive account of the last twelve months in music (aka...

Wry - Waves

Fighting back waves (uh-huh) of nostalgia, I'm nonetheless bound to admit that Waves delivers an ocean (uh-huh x2) of memories of the first time I heard music like this and knew I needed it in...

Butterfly Child - Holding On

'With a first album in nearly eighteen years on the way, Joe Cassidy, aka Butterfly Child, has announced a second track from the album. Holding On is dream pop with a classic twist: something a...

Public Service Broadcasting - Sputnik

Sputnik is the literally pulsing first half of a double a-side, the fourth release from Public Service Broadcasting's 2015 album The Race For Space. It's a mesmeric, metronomic track that brings to life the awe...

Otherkin - Feel It

if Radio X are giving air time to Otherkin and their rapscallion ilk (assumptions: they have ilk, they are rapscallions. Probably true) they can't be all bad.

Saltwater Sun - Wild

First there was the blistering Habit on My Mind, then came the Foals-meets-The-Cardigans of Making Eyes. Now Saltwater Sun have completed the release cycle for their debut release Wild with the EP's title track. Happily...

Naives - No Way

At the end of a year of festival slots and tour support, and ahead of their debut EP due out next year, Anglo-French synth pop trio Naives have revealed their latest single, No Way.

Strange Talk - When It Feels So Good

When It Feels So Good is a shining, pumping, pulsating dancefloor moment with its eyes and mind on the past and its ears very much in the future.

The Lonely Together - Congregation

I want to somehow convey here the idea that Congregation, the new single from The Lonely Together, sounds and feels so very of its place (that place being Scotland) and in many ways strongly reminiscent...

Turin Brakes - 96

'There was much excitement last week among Turin Brakes fans, when the band dropped a teaser video online with the hashtag #TBLostProperty. Then, this week, they announced a new album, Lost Property, and a new...
