"Wishin'" by DEJA
With angelic vocals and a flowing hip hop beat, DEJA shares a single all about desire. The artist has said: "I think we’ve all been there - seeing a guy/girl in the street that you actually want up in your sheets. And then wishing you’d made some kind of move because now you can’t get them out of your head! That’s what Wishin’ is about; taking that leap or regretting it. No risk, no reward."
"Tyskie" by Pat
Lyric charmer Pat is back with a heart-warming rap single to follow his acclaimed first two - which saw Clash and Wonderland dishing out the praise. "Tyskie" is about the word smith's dual English-Polish heritage: "'Sippin Tyskie on a park bench' is a lyric that presents a Polish attitude to life and is essentially about getting deep into your thoughts and taking in your journey and surroundings."
"Let Dusk Welcome Me" by MEI
MEI sought out an all-female crew to work across her EP 'The Hard Way Around the Sun'. Lofty vocals and decadent instrumentals meet in this alt-R&B and jazz combo.
"Blame Game" by Biyi
Latin feels, an irresistible beat, assured rap bars - what more could we want from a summer track? Biyi, both rapper and professional rugby player for Wasps, has us completely hooked.
"Poison Apple" by Lukewarmdaily96
A golden egg from his debut EP 'Cluck', this single about "recklessness" moves from dreamy synthy pastures to plucky acoustics and defiant percussion. The Cork native has been creating lo-fi dream-worlds from his bedroom and the EP is a plush soundscape to plunge into.
"New Normal" by Taura Lamb
A number of singles have addressed the "new normal" we find ourselves in - for Taura Lamb, the much-uttered phrase isn't about what you think. On post-relationship single life, this is a zingy better-independent track.
"Avenue B" by Venna
Lo-fi, reeling saxophones and a touch of dance and soul come head to head in Grammy winning Venna's latest - ultimate chill vibes.
"Eliogy" by Morly
Church harmonies and melancholy melodies are on supply in Morly's latest single "Eliogy". From her EP of the same name, the Minneapolis-based singer-songwriter once again hits all the right notes.
"Better View" by Chloe Rodgers
Reminiscent of the gentle pop of the noughties, bringing bands like Noah & The Whale to mind, Chloe Rodgers hands over another happy hit. She is about to head off on a busking tour across 18 countries.
"Party" by Ruby Duff
Moving from a Disney-sweet sound to an intense electronic groove, the 23-year-old Ruby Duff has said on her new track: "‘Party’ is about the anticipation of a single moment in life to then the great downfall."
