Every week, Music News and Liberty Music look at the best new releases from emerging and self-releasing artists.

BOGART - float

With a timeless syllable-blending flow BOGART defies trends and stands strong with float. Utilising themes from the genre defining era of the 90s, he capitalises on his influences and emerges from the crowds of new artists hopping on the trap music trend to get ahead. The passion continues into the lyrical efforts, with BOGART addressing the positive effect of music on the everyday.

Wafia - I’m Good

Bold Australian artist Wafia created a lot of buzz around her name working with breakthrough indie dance duo Louis the Child for the summer smash Better Not. Amidst all that noise she’s been quietly working on new music that defines her vision. I’m Good is a eclectic pop crossover with a grooving bass line for backbone, with Wafia delivering her distinct vocal timbre with a lyrical narrative of relatable honesty.

Mercury Machine - Aurora

Manchester based five piece Mercury Machine reach stadium rock territory with their 80s flavoured vision. Latest offering Aurora takes on an interstellar journey through iconic sounds both old and new, with every element perfectly encapsulating a modern, boundary pushing ode to the past.

Cat Burns - Sober

Emerging UK R&B Pop talent Cat Burns emphatically makes her stamp on the scene with the blissfully relatable Sober. Smartly weaving elements of afro-pop with funky guitars, it’s hard to believe someone with such a refined sound is just 18 years of age. Sober scratches the surface of modern love addressing the eye rolling efforts of drunk infatuation, creating an honest narrative that I’m sure we’ve all dealt with in one way or the other.

Harri Georgio & SunSun - Rudeboy Sound

Embarking on a musical journey that exports their sound from the Midlands, UK to a national and international audience, Harri Georgio and SunSun combines their talents for the nostalgic summer cut Rudeboy Sound. Their collective efforts forge a very UK sound that weaves in flavours of Reggae and club music through the ages and stands out as a naughty, feelgood hit.
