Get stuck into all the fresh new tracks you need to hear this week, featuring Glass Animals, Griff, Peggy Gou and more.

‘Creatures In Heaven’ by Glass Animals

Grammy nominated Oxford poppers Glass Animals reveal the first single, ‘Creatures in Heaven’, off their fourth album, I Love You So F***ing Much. Put down those pineapples, fans, because this single is far more existential than the tropical indie rock that they’ve pioneered since their debut record, Gooey.

'Eat Pray Love' by Paul Russell

Paul Russell is keeping the groove alive as he shifts gears from pop to disco with his latest track, ‘Eat Pray Love’. Drawing from childhood nostalgia and his affinity for disco, he serves up an infectious anthem that’s sure to lift spirits with its zesty trumpet interlude and timeless '70s flair.

‘1+1=11’ by Peggy Gou

Tech house goddess Peggy Gou is back with another disgustingly catchy four to the floor thumper. Piano loops and a killer break beat feel like sweaty nights on the dancefloor of an Ibiza super club, and there’s no doubt that ‘1+1+11’ will feature heavily on rotation as we move into the Balearic Islands season.

‘Cry’ by Benson Boone

Washington singer-songwriter Benson Boone delivers his debut album, Fireworks & Rollerblades. Singing tales of High school hedonism in catchy pop tones, on ‘Cry’, he rues someone getting the better of his emotions. The track begins with piano balladry before launching into a more danceable anthem.

‘In The Front’ by Vegyn, John Glacier

Vegyn’s emotionally charged new album, The Road To Hell Is Paved With Good Intentions, features some familiar faces. ‘In The Front’ begins with a robotic vocal sample that announces, “Another day, another dollar”, providing all the phrasal mundanity of waking up for a nine to five. John Glacier comes all guns blazing, spitting wise witticisms over the robotic trap beat.

‘Club classics’ by Charli XCX

“When I go to the club, I want to hear those club classics / club classics, club club classics,” chants Charli XCX on the hook of her latest kinetic jam, ‘Club classics’. Frenetic and futuristic, the track travels through realms of Jersey club, euro dance and bassline while the Cambridge native throws her arms in the ear and declares her love for the dancefloor.

‘Boxing’ by Mount Kimbie, King Krule

Mount Kimbie’s surrealistic new album, The Sunset Violent, features a collection of collaborations with Peckham poet King Krule. On ‘Boxing’ the band combines his gruff cadence, which sounds like rocks scraping through a cement mixer, with instrumental shoegaze fuzz. It’s a sunsoaked return from the London band, who seem comfortable in their pocket of guitar laden electronica.

‘Mind Still’ by Sonny Fodera, blythe

Australian-born, London-based house prodigy Sonny Fodera teams up with angelic vocalist blythe for ‘Mind Still’ - another steely four-to-the-floor anthem that shows his masterful mixing capabilities. The DJ’s obsessively streamed back catalogue has taken him on sold-out world tours, including dates at the revered Mayfield Depot in Manchester.

‘House’ by London Grammar

London Grammar reach for their DnB bag on ‘House’, the first single taken from their follow-up to 2021’s Californian Soil. Lead singer Hannah Reid lays down her law, reminding people,“This is my place, my house, my rules,” while acoustic guitars brush shoulders with liquid drums and melodies.

‘Pillow In My Arms’ by Griff

From her bedroom to stadiums in just a few years, Griff’s popstar charm has earned her spots supporting Coldplay, Dua Lipa and a co-sign from Taylor Swift. ver2igo vol.2 released today and standout track, ‘Pillow In My Arms’ sees her showcase a mellower side, letting her soaring vocals bask in the limelight. Sad, yet euphoric, she puts her twist on the pop game, whisking up a three-minute cinematic showstopper.
