All The Luck In The World - Golden October

Berlin-based Irish band All The Luck In The World today announce their immaculate new single Golden October. Quick to mould their serrated guitar plucked melodies, the track steadily builds in to one of the most invigorating and pure releases I've heard all year. The result; an utterly unique and spellbinding work of art. Having been hard at work on their second album, Golden October marks the trio's first work since 2015 and will no doubt leave us eagerly anticipating more. Take a listen for yourselves below.


Lewis Capaldi - Mercy

Today sees the release of Lewis Capaldi's 4-track debut EP, 'Bloom', culminating with him sharing the final single, Mercy. "I’m over the moon to be finally putting out a full EP" explains Capaldi, "It’s a collection of songs that captures the last year of my life, and features songs I recorded in London, New York and Los Angeles". Expertly crafted, his latest track sees him take the pain and anguish felt in his vocals, etching them on to the track's despondent sound to raise a song that's filled with a final cry for hope and wishing. Take a listen below.

BOBI - Apartment

Upcoming Australian artist Bobi Andonov today shares his debut single Apartment, accompanied by a brand new official video directed by Ellis Bahl. Think big powerhouse vocals and a huge stomping bassline and you'd be somewhat on your way to describing his unique enrapturing sound. "I write a lot while watching movies," he says, "It started with an idea of an intensely vocally driven song. Dylan and I just got each other instantly. He amplified the idea with dark, minimal, sexy sounds". Take a listen for yourselves below.

Saint Raymond - Nightcrawling

Having featured quite possibly every single he's released over the year's, it would sadly seem I've been left off his PR's emails this time around. Luckily I caught the new single on Facebook. Back with a brand new EP entitled 'A Light That Blinds', Saint Raymond makes a very welcomed return with his brand new track Nightcrawling featuring swanky guitars and a huge chorus to boot. We'd expect nothing less really with his renown pop sensibilities. Take a listen below for yourselves.

Mallrat - Better

First introduced to Mallrat through her accentuated vocals on Allday's single Baby Spiders, I knew I was hooked. Here she returns with her brand new track Better that reinforces just why she's so good at what she does as we get another taste of her delecatbale charm and sickly sweet pop melodies. "I wrote Better over a year ago but it’s taken most of this time to get it sounding exactly how it does in my head, so thanks for waiting so patiently for new music" explains Mallrat. "My dad says it’s his favourite song which makes me very excited to share it with everyone". Take a listen for yourselves below.
