3AM is my favourite track on @halsey's new album Manic. A tune full of ’90s rock nostalgia and killer drums, played by by Red Hot @ChiliPeppers’ @RHCPchad.

It also features a voicemail message by @JohnMayer. Read all about it and listen via http://bit.ly/CBMhalsey

Dark Star sees @jackrivermusic tapping into long-past feelings, when she sings of the dark obsession underlying young love.

River intended it to be ‘a racy, guitar-y, sentimental song that made you feel like you’re driving past your ex’s house’. http://bit.ly/CBMjackriver

Brightest Star is the 1st single off @LillyHiatt1's new album. This irresistible piece of jangle-rock doesn’t hide her Nashville roots.

An empowering song about walking through life’s darkest moments of insecurity and self-doubt. Read more and listen: http://bit.ly/CBMlillyhiatt

Her latest slacker jam Bang Bang Bang is @lauranhibberd's favourite song of hers so far. “It’s my Crash by The Primitives, my ode to the ’90s teenager and the soundtrack to every mistake I’ve ever made and how I can laugh at that now.”

. @hayleymarymusic's debut EP features 2 unreleased tracks: Holly and Brat. The first was inspired by Concrete Blonde’s Joey, but the latter, the EP’s closer, is my favourite.

Brat is another driving rock song, that suits Hayley’s smooth vocals very well. http://bit.ly/CBMhayleymary2

. @ficklefriends are from Brighton. So, unsurprisingly, ‘bright’ is one of the first words that spring to mind listening to their new single, just like 'fresh' and 'vibrant'.

Pretty Great is an addictive synth-pop tune, full of charming, relatable lyrics. http://bit.ly/CBMficklefriends

Circle The Drain by @sopharela (Soccer Mommy) is as intriguing as it is contradictory. Lyrically, it addresses dizzying sadnesses, but the melody is poppy & deceptively cheerful. I even hear echoes of @JanetJackson's Whoops Now in it.

Check for yourself: http://bit.ly/CBMsoccermommy

The five tracks on @HayleyKiyoko's brand-new EP I’m Too Sensitive For This Shit already have over 15 million streams combined.

One of those songs is her new single She, a previously unreleased anthem about self-empowerment and knowing your self-worth. http://bit.ly/CBMhayleykiyoko2

Ready For More is easily @sonicseagirls’ best and most accessible single to date. The band recently signed to major label @Polydor, which I expect to put their weight behind it.

For starters, this potential hit is the new Carte Blanche Music Wildcard! http://bit.ly/CBMseagirls2

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

The Fool by Overcoats is a powerful anthem, musically and lyrically. It contains a strong message of empowerment, independence, and self-determination.

Based on ‘The Fool’ tarot card, it’s only logical it's this week’s Carte Blanche Music Wildcard! bit.ly/CBMovercoats

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.
