On new single Never Let Go, @whenyoungband sounds more stylish, more sophisticated. The guitars are less prominent in the mix, in favour of synths. This gives the song a fuller sound, ready for radio and hopefully a next step towards the masses. Nice!

Never heard of @jesse_hite? You’re not to blame, When It All Comes Down is only his debut single. But what a way to start a career! It's equal parts funk and soul, and a horn section makes it even groovier. His debut EP comes out this Spring.

Five year since their break-through single Best Days Of My Life, @aauthorsmusic are about to issue their third album Seasons. It contains the three singles they released last year, and the brand-new track Stay Around. A beat-driven, up-tempo song!

. @jontessiermusic is a Brazilian singer-songwriter. His music can be described as guitar-driven pop music with an alternative rock edge. A fresh sound, that I like very much. His new single For A Little Eye Candy is this week’s @carteblanchemus Wildcard


. @edseed's @statstatstats are a London sextet that plays full-band dance music, inspired by the likes of #RoxyMusic and @lcdsoundsystem. Their funky single Lose It sounds like it could be playlisted by radio stations and streaming services all around.

.@mercuryrev’s new album will be a starstudded reconstruction of Bobbie Gentry’s cult classic The Delta Sweete. A beautifully arranged version of Okolona River Bottom Band (feat. @NorahJones) is the set’s intriguing new single. Looking forward to the rest!

YouTube personality/actress @adelecastillon and singer-songwriter Matthieu Reynaud are @9VIDEOCLUB. Roi (French for ‘king’) is only the teens' second outing. A lovely electronic pop song with classic chanson melodies, coupled with eighties-influenced raps.
