Galactic Dust – ‘DiscoDust’

With a rich and diverse range of influencers including Parcels, Toro Y Moi and Kali Uchis, London-based outfit Galactic Dust now introduce themselves to the world with their fun and upbeat debut single ‘DiscoDust’. Bringing a fresh and vibrant aesthetic to the fashionable disco sound, this new offering showcases them as a bright and energetic outfit that know how to get a party started.

Sophia Gripari – ‘Lie To Me’

While the coronavirus lockdown has proven troublesome for many artists right now, London-born but LA-based singer and songwriter Sophia Gripari has been sure to stay productive throughout these hard times as she shares her latest single ‘Lie To Me’. Following on from the previously shared cut ‘Hate You But I Don’t’ as the second offering during quarantine, this new delight looks to shine a light on these uncertain times with its bold and euphoric direction.

Valid Point – ‘Be Quiet’

Despite living hundreds of miles apart in Memphis, Tennessee and North Carolina respectively, brothers Thad and Jonah McClelland have never let distant disrupt their creative ambitions as the duo now unveil their latest album ‘Mannequin’. Opening up with the pulsing trap-inspired belter ‘Be Quiet’, the release looks to highlight a pain that almost broke your spirit and how you deal with moving on from it.

XTIE – ‘Flower Town’

Although she was born in Hong Kong, singer and songwriter XTIE spent the majority of her childhood moving around the world, and it is that multinational experience that she brings into everything she creates. Returning with the new single ‘Flower Town’, which she wrote in the Netherlands, this new alt-pop delight sees her play effortlessly with glossy pop tones and a pulsing beat to create a truly joyous gem.

Kiss Kanoo – ‘I Already Know’

Having already received huge acclaim for her latest releases, London-based singer and songwriter Kiss Kanoo now looks to continue the support for her forthcoming EP ‘Primordial’ with the sweeping new offering ‘I Already Know’. Blending smooth and seductive RnB tones with a dark-pop sensibility, her newest single sets her apart from the usual direction of the RnB world and delivers something far more atmospheric in the process.
