"900 Degrees" by Deyah
The Welsh rapper/R&B artist swaps between fast bars and silky-smooth vocals in her first big release of 2022. “900 Degrees” draws on Deyah’s search for peace and tranquility in her own music, and how it’s often taken her away from the draw of the big city.

"So Cool" by Low Girl
Hemel Hempstead-based alt-pop artist Low Girl has dropped “So Cool”, their title track from their forthcoming second EP, which continues Low Girl’s journey of exploring their own self-worth through frank lyricism. On the song, Low Girl has said, “There was a girl I liked who really knew how to switch it on and off, flirting and then recoiling. I’d end up feeling pretty disorientated, trying to maintain some sense of composure and resolve but failing miserably. I knew none of it was good for me, but my tendency to be self-destructive made it inevitable.”
