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

LEAP – ‘N.L.T.D.’

After originally making a name for himself as the frontman of riotous indie outfit The Mispers, singer and songwriter Jack Scott now returns with his eagerly awaited solo project LEAP with debut single ‘N.L.T.D.’ Inspired by the fresh and vibrant sound of Twenty One Pilots and Sam Fender, this new offering blends pounding production with a warm and wistful atmosphere to create a fresh and distinctive initial cut.

Issermann – ‘Throated’

Spending much of his childhood darting between numerous musical projects as a producer, writer, performer and much more, London-based artist Issermann was only naturally to become a one-man-band in his later life, and now delivers his thunderous new single ‘Throated’. Mixing up a pop-rock aesthetic with thumping hip-hop beats, his debut track is an intimate, grungy and daring offering that instantly makes you stand up and listen.

Alex Softley – ‘People Watching’

Since the release of his debut single ‘Walk By The Riverside’ in 2018, London-based singer and songwriter Alex Softley has been on a hell of a ride. With regular gigs all over the capital, as well as a quarterfinal spot at the Isle Of Wight New Blood competition, he now returns with his latest release ‘People Watching’. With a wistful yet richly luxurious voice, Softley takes his cues from the likes of Ed Sheeran with this bold and blissful new gem.

Luna Pines – ‘You’ll Miss It All’

With a string of praise already coming in from the likes of BBC Introducing, Clash Magazine and SoFar Sounds in recent months, Leeds-based outfit Luna Pines now look to continue their upward ascent with their latest release ‘You’ll Miss It All’. Sitting somewhere between the sounds of dream-pop and alternative music, this new jam looks to present them in a more romantic light, showcasing their talents for a more pop-focused dynamic.

Far Places – ‘homecoming’

Having spent the majority of the last few months drip-feeding us exerts from their latest EP ‘memorabilia’, which have included ‘sway’, ‘for worse’ and ‘el matador’, US electro-pop duo Far Places now return with their latest offering ‘homecoming’. Continuing that same sparkled and euphoric alt-pop direction as their previous material, the pair follow in the footsteps of The Naked And Famous and M83 with this bright and uplifting new delight.
