MAZDE| SHIFTED THOUGHTS (FEAT. LA MAR)
On trend at the moment thanks to its muffled bass, soulful vocals and striking synths, Germany-based producer Mazde’s new track feels like a breakout hit in the making.
JENNIFER DAVIES | CHOKE
After releasing her debut EP last month, British singer Jennifer Davies has unveiled the music video for Choke, a commanding, lyrically-driven track about Davies coming to the realisation that she’s become trapped in a suffocating relationship.
FLYTE | LIGHT ME UP
Bringing a hint of summer back to London’s dreary journey toward winter, Flyte’s Light Me Up – which tells the story of a new love bringing colour back to life – is a wonderfully uplifting self-produced masterpiece with a smattering of 80s influences and anthemic chorus that help show off the London-based band’s homegrown talent.
ALL WE ARE| CAN’T DO WITHOUT YOU (CARIBOU COVER)
Hailing from Liverpool, indie group All We Are have been steadily releasing some great music over the past couple of years. However, their recent cover of Caribou’s Can’t Do Without You is one of their most accomplished efforts yet and begs the question why they haven’t made more of an impact on the British music scene.
LEIGHTON MEESTER | HEARTSTRINGS
Feeling like a mix between lyrical prowess of Tori Amos and folky stylings of Sheryl Crow, Leighton Meester’s LP has been five years in the making, and the title track goes at least some way to proving that the wait was definitely worth it.
