"Summer Night's Fling" by Lilah
New artist Lilah shares her sophomore single.

Her debut EP 'Atlantis' is due for release on 12th November.
"Love You" by Tom Ford & Poppy Ajudah
Streaming synths and lulling vocals sweep you away on this debut track from Tom Ford. He explains: “I really liked this idea that anyone who has been in a relationship goes through a phase where you don't know if the other person is into you as much as you're into them, and they're usually on the same page as you. It's that game of chicken. Who's the one to explicitly come out and say it and just go for it? There's always a vague grey area of who's gonna go first?”
"Queen" by Maya Delilah
Maya Delilah's second EP, 'It's Not Me, It's You' is a grooving, earworm exhibition of the young talent's smooth vocals and enviable guitar skills. Written about a breakup, the process was cathartic for Maya and relatable for anyone who's ever had a relationship end.
"not like my friends" by Jazmine Flowers
Alt-R&B rising artist and TikTok sensation, Jazmine Flowers, drops her debut EP ‘adulting’. This track was written and produced by Flowers herself. Speaking on the EP, she said: "I didn’t plan for its theme of naivety and growing up but when collating these songs, I realised how perfectly they sum up my last few years of learning about myself and this world".
"PFL" by Downtown Kayoto
Indie R&B artist Downtown Kayoto gets in his feelings on new single "PFL", the final single before his EP ‘NAVIG8’ drops 11th November. Kayoto said that the new single is a pessimistic take on the circular nature of relationships in the age of the pandemic: “The meeting stage, the honeymoon stage, the breaking up stage and then repeat".
"Feed Me" by Grandmas House
Bristol trio Grandmas House drop their first ever EP, mixing punk, post-rock and American hardcore for a witchy, adrenaline-fuelled record.
"Love on My Own" by Tertia May
Tertia May's new single sees her full-bodied, smoky vocals intertwine with licks of honeyed trumpets. The new pop-leaning song is an ode to self-resilience.
