"Polyfilla" by Greta Isaac
Welsh rising star Greta Isaac delivers this gut wrenching ballad that is sure to make you feel something. Speaking on the track she explains: "This song was pretty cathartic for me to write. I was going through a time in my life where I found myself surrounded by friends, family members, fleeting encounters that all seemed to be working through difficulties within themselves that stemmed from hereditary trauma and pain."
"Friends" by Tom Ford
Birmingham multi-instrumentalist brings the funky vibes with this one, delivering distorted noodly vocals alongside a jazzy multilayered instrumental.
"Something Special" by House of EL
Another funky one from Northampton based artist "House of EL". The debut single off his upcoming mixtape, the track is built around an infectious disco-influenced bassline and ethereal lo-fi synths.
"how to be happy" by Joey Knight
Joey's dreamy vocals take centre stage on this lo-fi pop tune reflecting on the loss of childhood innocence. Joey muses: "As you get older, pretty much everything you do in life is to try and be happy... Children don’t actively think about any of that, they are just passively happy without thinking about it. I think that’s a different kind of happiness which as you do get older gets harder to hold onto."
"Teardrop" by Poppy Baskcomb
If you want a mini party in your bedroom look no further than Poppy's upbeat pop anthem celebrating love and romance.
"NAVIG8" by Downtown Kayoto
