. @HopeDmusic’s sophomore single is aptly-titled Second. Now with a full band behind her, it's an edgy and pulsing track with driving guitars, whirling synths and angsty vocals. Or, to put it short and snappy: an indie pop-rock banger.

Refreshing and vibrant, @magbechmann's new single What Do You Know is an indie-pop song with hints of @TDCinemaClub, @thewombats and @wearephoenix. An uplifting and well-produced track with a driving rhythm and a thumping bass.

(Radio) Playlist material! https://bit.ly/CBMbechmann3

The EP Ancient Futures is @noisettes singer @ShingaiMusic’s first solo release, which draws on her Zimbabwean and Bantu heritage.

Coming Home is the EP’s first single. I dare you not to move your hips to its dancefloor-ready beats. Bonkers pop music! https://bit.ly/CBMshingai

If you like the joyful melodies, anthemic choruses and quick-pacing rhythms of @ballparkmusic: they’re back!

Spark Up! is the band’s euphoric new single. It captures the building anxiousness of a changing world and the forces that are swirling underneath. https://bit.ly/CBMballparkmusic2

. @OtherLives' new single Hey Hey I is characterized by an honest, warm sound, based around a pounding piano melody. Meanwhile, the four-to-the-floor drum beat is enriched with chattering castanettes. A wonderful return.

Red Line is @IzoFitzRoy's soulful new single. Already a great track on her album, the radio version is a beefed up affair.

It’s got even more drive than the original and puts greater emphasis on the horns (which is never a bad idea). Brilliant tune! https://bit.ly/CBMizofitzroy

This week's Carte Blanche Music Wildcard is a great new single by @thespitfiresuk. The title, (Just Won’t) Keep Me Down, sounds like a message of hope (and a middle finger to COVID-19).

A powerful, infectious, brass-infused stomper of a song. Check here: https://bit.ly/CBMspitfires

A Good Song Never Dies is a first glimpse of what to expect of @SaintMotel's upcoming EP.

As always, the single is catchy as hell, with a danceable rhythm and a prominent bassline. Party time! https://bit.ly/CBMsaintmotel3

Swedish singer Flikka's vocals, the beat and the whole atmosphere of @gottsstreetpark's new single Favourite Kind Of Girl melt together in a soulful triphop kind of sound. As if it were a collaboration of @MorcheebaBand and @Portisheadinfo.

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.
