Get ready for some new musical discoveries in this week's Notion Now playlist, with tunes courtesy of METTE, Nia Archives, p-rallel and more.

"Mama's Eyes" by METTE

A bold follow up to 2021’s undeniable bop “Petrified”, “Mama’s Eyes” is a gospel infused electronic jam. Inspired by her move to London, the single sees METTE pushing creative boundaries as she lyrically searches for a sense of peace.

"Ice Cream Man." by RAYE

Chart-topping singles have put underdog RAYE right at the top of Britain’s pop agenda. “Ice Cream Man.”, thanks to its soulful sensibilities, is our pick from her new album 'My 21st Century Blues'.

"Conveniency" by Nia Archives

An explosion of amen breaks fuels Nia Archives’ new single “Conveniency”. However, there’s an undertone of solitude that exposes the jungle queen with a relatable vulnerability. It’s cry in the club music, for the sensitive soul in us all.

"This Is" by Ella Mai

South west London via New York star Ella Mai has achieved international acclaim in such a short time span. “This Is”, with its shimmery R&B production and emphatically delivered vocals, shows just why.

"Maybe I'm Lonely" by Rachel Chinouriri

Snagging a support slot for Lewis Capaldi on tour after a drunken DM, Rachel Chinouriri’s the name on the tip of every critic’s lips. The indie-folk artist’s latest hymnal, “Maybe I’m Lonely”, is a delicate introduction to her discography.

"Night Light" by yunè pink

yunè pinku’s wistful tracks draw inspiration from a myriad of UK club sounds. “Night Light” is no different, as its idiosyncratic breakbeats and glitchy melodies waft under her dainty vocals.

"UFO" by Olivia Dean

Set to be the first single of an unannounced album, “UFO” is a soft affair from singer-songwriter Olivia Dean. The London native is touring England from March, playing cities like Leeds, Bristol and Manchester.

"Evening Time" by p-rallel, KAM-BU, BXKS

A two-step roller with a roaring bassline, “Every Time” sees p-rallel embedding his sound further in the clubbing-verse. KAM-BU and BXKS reach for their most fiery flows, fearlessly upping the octane.

"Figured Out" by Bawo

“Figured Out” is our tip from Bawo’s brilliant new EP, ‘Legitimate Cause’. The west Londoner’s jumpy delivery rides the 808-ingnited trap beat dexterously, as he addresses refreshingly relatable subject matters.

"Blood And Butter" by Caroline Polacheck

Manhattan-born Caroline Polacheck’s new single is an Irish folk-infused uplifter. Raising your spirits with an angelic vocal delivery, “Blood And Butter” is the latest track from her forthcoming album ‘Desire, I Want To Turn Into You’.
