Sanctify - Years & Years
Almost 3 years after the release of their debut album, Sanctify brings Years & Years’ long-awaited return.

Woes - High on you
Recommended by Tom Walker

Call Out My Name - The Weeknd
The opening track of The Weeknd’s surprise drop ‘My Dear Melancholy,’. The six-track release consists of tracks more reminiscent of Abel’s earlier work than his most recent album, ‘Starboy’. The drop has received wide coverage as fans speculate which of the Canadian’s previous love interests are the subject of his lyrics.

We all die young - The Decemberists
Recommended by Devon Potter

Crisis Fest - Sunflower Bean
Originally released in January, as the first single from their newly released album 'Twentytwo In Blue', Crisis Fest encapsulates the bands post-punk sound. Front-woman and bassist Julia Cumming shows off her vocals and demonstrates that it is not just her appearance that draws similarities with Blondie's Debbie Harry.

Before Sunrise - Gengahr
Recommended by Annika Singh
New Houses - Two Door Cinema Club
‘Four Words To Stand On’ is the latest release from indie heroes TDCC. The EP features original demos of some of the bands most successful songs. Buried in amongst these is calming track, ‘New Houses’. The song will make you want to sway in a sunny field with a drink in hand, joining their back catalogue of songs with a similar vibe.

In The Morning - Jay Prince
Recommended by Louis Andersen-Risager
It Runs Through Me - Tom Misch feat. De La Soul
Never afraid of a collaboration, 22-year-old Tom Misch teams up with hip-hop legends De La Soul. Tom’s eclectic, jazz-influenced, sound blends perfectly with the trio’s lyrics to create a track that is sure to get your head bobbing.

I remember - Ady Suleiman
Recommended by Hannah Williams
Set to Attack - Albert Hammond Jr
Peppered with stylistic influences from his work with The Strokes, single ‘Set To Attack’ offers up an indie vibe so listenable you can't help but give in and “hold on” to its smoothness. Musically, his new material is reassuring and comforting for an avid fan of the early noughties indie takeover and will not be disappointed with Hammond’s return to roots.

Palm Dreams - Hayley Kiyoko
Recommended by Eethan Bello

Saviour - George Ezra, First Aid Kit
With the release of his new album ‘Staying at Tamara’s’ George Ezra brings us a collaboration with Scandinavian sisters First Aid Kit. Saviour combines the Swedish duo’s folk backing with Ezra’s deep soulful voice to create a deep resonating song that is highlighted by slow building harmonies and a full-bodied chorus.

Recommended by Joana Pereira Carvalho
The original release of Lemon brought about N.E.R.D. ’s return to music and teased their album NO ONE EVER REALLY DIES. The remix sees Drake and Rihanna, who also featured in a previously released edit, taking on the song's verses.
