. @jeliofthebirds are back with a single that will slowly ensconce itself in your brain.

Ode To Fire is built around a soothing guitar melody, which appears to hint Indian influences. However, the track was conceived in Portugal. https://bit.ly/CBMjealousbirds3

Suffolk alt-pop artist @bessieturner released her debut single Big Sleep in April 2017. Three years on, her new track Donkey is her eighth.
Although the lyrics are rather dark, Donkey is a triumphant-sounding guitar-based tune.

The gorgeous and distinct vocals of upcoming German singer @AliceMerton make @awolnation's The Best even better.

A reworking/collaboration by the book, even though it came together while both parties were in self-isolation in different parts of the world. https://bit.ly/CBMawolmerton

. #Eskobar (remember Someone New?) still exists and just released new single When Your Heroes Fall.

A fine pop song once again, with @OfficialPMDawn kind of vibes. It reminds me a little of their Set Adrift On Memory Bliss, which can only be a good thing. https://bit.ly/CBMeskobar

Just like @kakkmaddafakka’s recent tracks Baby & Echoes, their new single was not on the band’s latest album Diplomacy.

Moonshine is another happy, radio friendly, summery song. Sure to bring some sunshine in your life. Listen via your platform of choice: https://bit.ly/CBMkmf6

. @roquemore_music's debut single Blame sounds like a cross of early @arcadefire and @MassiveAttackUK. Expect tragic string arrangements, compact grooves and tormented vocals, but boy, what a beauty.

It's the new Carte Blanche Music Wildcard! For more: https://bit.ly/CBMroquemore

London-based duo Oh Wonder's single Happy is a tune that delivers what its title promises.

Just listen to the opening piano notes, that fall like raindrops. Or the uplifting violins that grace the choruses, as if it were a Carly Rae Jepsen song. More: bit.ly/CBMohwonder

Elsa Birgitta Bekman made a good start in 2020. She released the EP All ‘bout Love, which bundles her singles so far.

The fourth song, the EP’s title track, is her new single. A beautiful and delicate song, that once again comes with a stunning video.

Dutch indie-pop quartet Charmplay are sure to be embraced by fans of Satellite Stories and Two Door Cinema Club. They produce the same kind of danceable pop-rock, which should go down well on radio as well as live.

Hurry is Charmplay’s great new single. Check it here: bit.ly/CBMcharmplay

They don’t come any more eighties than this, and I love it. Beverly Girl's sound includes elements of disco, soul, r&b and funk.

The Finnish trio's new single I’m Your Girl could have been a 2020 version of Deniece Williams’ Let’s Hear It For The Boy. Read more and listen: bit.ly/CBMbeverlygirl

RAT BOY doesn’t keep his critical views to himself. Musically, his driving cocktail of rap, rock, and grooves adds fuel to the fire.

On new single Victim Of A System, he enhances the aforementioned formula with infectious horns and a pinch of ska. Read more and listen via bit.ly/CBMratboy4

So Moviestar originate from the distant future, and ‘landed the spaceship Moviestar in Norway’. O...kay...

Their single Iron Forest is an intriguing and captivating track however, which sits somewhere between Twin Peaks (the TV series) and Björk.

Legendary duo Pet Shop Boys just entered their 5th(!) hit decennium.

Their new single Monkey Business features a prominent bassline, which makes it sound funkier than they usually do. As soon as the vocoder drops in, the Daft Punk comparison is complete.
