Porches - Rangerover




Today marks the very welcomed return of Porches with his brand new single, Rangerover. Insatiably catchy, the track takes shape as a slowly built synth ballad that settles in to its catchy melodies and tranquil textures. "Like any other type of diary, when you open up an old one you can feel all sorts of things: proud, ashamed, excited, mortified, humbled, out of your mind, smart, idiotic. I feel all of these things about Porches" explains Aaron Maine. "For as many turns the music has made, I’ve decided to stick to the Porches moniker, to come to terms with and confront my evolution as an artist as well as a person. As clunky as that may be, it comes back to wanting to accept and explore who I am, what I feel, and how I communicate that. I want to swim to the bottom of myself and find the weirdest most special and pure shit that I can offer". Take a listen for yourselves below.

THYLA - Two Sense




Brighton's much loved Thyla have returned recently with their gorgeous new single, Two Sense. Probably the band's most melodic effort yet, the track's energy shifts and infectious swells create a brand new dynamic for the four-piece, one that urges you to play it again and again. Discussing their upcoming single, frontwoman Millie Duthie explained: “Two Sense is about the short-term sacrifices we make in order to create space for long-term gains. It’s a song about growing up and claiming your right to self-determination. We’re really proud of the direction we’ve taken both in terms of the writing and production, it feels like our boldest cut yet; the vocals are purposefully front and centre and the message is clear”.

Callum Pitt - L. Lane




Callum Pitt - L. Lane

Returning with his new single, Newcastle-based artist Callum Pitt has unveiled the stunning L. Lane. A track bursting with colourful melodies and insatiably catchy hooks, the new single tackles a much darker subject matter, one of personal detachment, yet he manages to portray it in his upbeat unique way. "L. Lane is primarily about waiting and feeling stuck" Callum explains. "It revolves around a period in my life where my relationship had to be long distance, I wasn't in an enjoyable job,and not much was happening musically. It explores the feelings of discontent, disconnect and resentment you feel towards the place you feel stuck in and how easily time can be wasted by not being present mentally.” Take a listen below.

Ellen Krauss - Criminal To Love (Official Video)




Rising Swedish pop star Ellen Krauss today shares the cinematic new video to her latest single Criminal To Love. Speaking about the video, Ellen says "Making the video for “Criminal to Love” was a cool new experience. We shot it in the suburbs of LA, in a torn down liquor store and a staged trailer park. I like the way the film gives the audience behind the scenes footage and an honest view of film-making. Someone’s powdering my nose and then it cuts to me robbing the cashier. I had lots of fun making this. Throwing eggs at people is not an everyday thing, nor is spray painting for me...". Described as "a song about the destructiveness of certain relationships, personified", the track's simplified use of space adds to the damaging impact carried by Krauss's emotive vocals. Take a watch/listen for yourselves below.
