‘an object of desire’ by SPIDER

Exploring the nuances of objectification and social pressure, validation and self-worth, SPIDER's thunderous 'an object of desire' is a raw and relatable reflection on conflicted feelings around intimacy. Also the title for her new EP, which features singles ‘straight out the oven !’ and ‘daisy chains’, the deeply personal project unpacks everything from shame to rage to self-possession. "This project feels like the most personal, freeing thing I've made thus far", SPIDER says.

‘god is dead’ by glaive

Landing with his new EP, 'a bit of a mad one', Glaive's 'god is dead' strikes a perfect balance between chaotic maximalism and earworm melodies. Eclipsing his hyperpop roots, the project - building on last year's album, i care so much that i dont care at all - sees the artist embrace an expansive, multi-genre sound.

‘2 Much’ by Quendresa

North west London's Quendresa returns with Jordan Lee-produced slow jam '2 Much', alongside glittering, mesmerising visuals. Pining after a painful love that feels just too much, she sings on the chorus: "Cause boy your love is like a drug... Boy Your love, it keeps me up all night".

'May Sound Crazy’ by Kofi Stone, Benjamin Zephaniah

Birmingham rapper Kofi Stone is back with highly anticipated single 'May Sound Crazy'. Featuring the late Benjamin Zephaniah, the song reflects on his upbringing, paying homage to his story as well as the golden age of hip-hop. “I wanted to tell my story on this record", he says. "My aim was to let the listener into my world".

'Couples Therapy' by LuxJury

Following the release of their debut single ‘Hot Mess’, London trio LuxJury delve into polyamory and romanticised encounters with indie-pop song 'Couples Therapy'. “'Couples Therapy' was initially inspired by a girl at work who’s mere presence upended my life for a few months and drove me to end a long term relationship I was in. I wrote the track months later reflecting on the absurdity of intimacy, and how words and skin carry equal weight in how close we feel to people”, lead singer Nicole says of the track.

'backseat' by WESLEE

Gentle and tender, WESLEE's dreamy new track 'backseat' is the perfect backdrop for an introspective afternoon. Made up of vocalist Emma DD and producer Josh Grant, the LA-based duo are just as well known for their distinctive visual identity, with artworks imagined by animator Agnes Xantippa Boman.
