"Matty Healy" by Georgia Twinn
Rising popstar, Georgia Twinn, delivers a butter-wouldn't-melt sucker-punch breakup anthem in the form of this new single. "You're just a second-rate Matt Healy/ The only thing about you I found appealing" she sings sweetly. “I was inspired by quite a negative person in my life,” explains Georgia, “who I was in ‘love’ with and they’d always say they looked better than Matty Healy and I was like ‘no!!!’ because I wasn’t going to let anyone ruin Matty or The 1975 for me when they’d eventually break my heart lol".
"Runaway" by KWAYE
A song so soft and gentle it stops time. The dazzling new single from KWAYE is so so intimate it almost feels as if he's singing it just for you. “‘Runaway’ is about the struggle with masculinity - what we feel as individuals vs what we are taught to believe. Tropes like ‘boys don’t cry’ and ‘man up’ still exist and further the idea that emotions are a sign of weakness", KWAYE said.
"Bleach" by Maeve
A breathy, ominous offering from rising "dystopian pop" artist, Maeve. "Bleach" is the second single from her upcoming EP 'Caravaggio in a Corner Store', due in June.
"i'm sad" by Coach Party
The four-piece band have dropped their 'After Party' EP, and this number is great for both it's relatable lyrics and electric guitar riffs. "“Each song on the ‘After Party’ EP came quite naturally to us, many of them are about difficult people, whether that be work colleagues, family members, and even ourselves (like in ‘Everybody Hates Me’). In other tracks we talk about whether we’d be okay on our own and dealing with self doubt and lack of trust - it’s self deprecating but in a positive therapeutic kind of way", vocalist Jess Eastwood explained.
"If I Could" by Ashley Kutcher
Up-and-coming musician, Ashley Kutcher, is set to go big, so get on board now! Signed to Billie Eilish's Darkroom label, she's got a unique voice and powerful delivery. "It was the first song I had ever written about someone else’s battles. But as it all came together, I found my own meaning within the lyrics", Ashley said.

"Peanut Butter" by Porsh Bet$
21-year-old Harlem musician, Porsh Bet$, hits us with an earworm bop all about things you like but can't have. "When I wrote it I was definitely just kinda daydreaming about the most perfect scenario - you know, with a girl and a fancy car on a nice day," Porsh explains. "Cause I'm allergic to peanut butter I really shouldn’t be near it, but it sucks because everyone else loves it! It looks good, but once I get too close, I get nauseous. I think of it like this - sometimes being left out is a good thing”.
