Haveyou ever found yourself walking down the street while you endlessly search back and forth through the same recycled playlist on your iPod, wishing you had some brilliant new tracks to play? We’ve all been there, and there’s nothing more soul-destroying. We thought we would help remedy your playlist blues with a new weekly list filled with the best tracks from up-and-coming artists that we just know you’ll end up loving like we do.
PANAMA | STAY FOREVER
One of our favourite tracks on the list, Stay Forever’s melancholic instrumental paired with lead singer Jarrah McCleary’s breathy, mellow vocals makes for a haunting addition to the discography of Sydney-based Panama.
TEAM ME | BLIND AS NIGHT
The title track from the Norwegian band’s forthcoming album, Blind as Night, is a euphoric indie-rock track with an gorgeous layered orchestral-edge that helps set the group apart from their peers.
CHARLIE CUNNINGHAM | OUTSIDE THINGS
The debut single from English-based singer/songwriter Charlie Cunningham could not have arrived in our inbox at a better time. With the leaves beginning to turn brown and Summer slowly becoming a distant memory, Outside Things’ folky autumnal vibe paired with Cunningham’s emotive vocals makes for an impressively competent debut single. One to watch out for in the future, for sure.
SAY LOU LOU | GAMES FOR GIRLS
Say Lou Lou have been knocking around for a while now, and it seems the ball has finally started rolling for the female two-piece. Games for Girls is a awesome slice of electro pop with a distinctly indie edge, and it’s slowly becoming one of our favourites from the band. Whether it matches up to the brilliance of their (arguably) best track, Fool of Me, is up for debate though…
SUPERFOOD | MOOD BOMB
After they released a well-received EP, Superfood are preparing to release their debut album later this year, and they’re leading the LP with the 90s Britpop inspired Mood Bomb, that sounds like – at least to us – a Pulp track being covered by We Are Scientists. That’s a good thing, trust us.
JONES | DEEP
Take a moment to imagine what Solange’s superb Dev Hynes-produced EP would have sounded like if it had been recorded by a British artist – you want to hear it now, right? Well now you can, thanks to the release of JONES’ debut single Deep, which is a beautifully-produced ode to the fear of falling in love.
