01. Ministry of Mars – Day ‘N’ Night (feat. Jad Lagoon)

Genre: indie pop, from: AUS, for fans of: The 1975, The Japanese House

Ministry Of Mars consists of British-Australian brothers Alistair and Jon Marsden. Both lads have had some success as solo artists already before joining forces on this new project. Day ‘N’ Night is their third single ever and features Aussie rapper Jad Lagoon.

02. Rupert Stroud – Along The Low

Genre: singer-songwriter, indie rock, from: UK, for fans of: Bruce Springsteen, George Ezra

Along The Low is the title track of singer-songwriter Rupert Stroud’s new album of the same name. The Yorkshire musician has made himself a name opening for the likes of James Blunt and Texas and names his parent’s record collection as his main influence. Along The Low was produced by Will Jackson (Kaiser Chiefs).

03. Approachable Members of Your Local Community – On + On

Genre: indie pop, from: AUS, for fans of: Chvrches, Vampire Weekend

To be fair, I always had a fondness for bands with ridiculously long names. Approachable Members of Your Local Community – that’s quite a mouth full – are no exception to this rule. The Aussie four piece has just dropped its infectiously fun single On + On from their forthcoming debut EP (out early 2020).

04. Sultans Court – Shutdown

Genre: electro pop, From: DE, for fans of: Glass Animals, Alt-J

Berlin four piece Sultans Court was conceived when singer singer Julius and guitarist Konstantin met while catching a ride together to a musical festival. Bonding over a shared love for Glass Animal, Alt-J and Chet Faker, the group started releasing music this year. Shutdown is their second single.

05. Gold Spectacles – Ask Twice

Genre: indie pop, From: UK, for fans of: Flyte, Metronomy

Gold Spectacles is a elusive London duo consisting of two songwriters / producers who haven’t revealed their names to us. New single Ask Twice is the ninth track in their full moon series, a run of monthly released songs coinciding with the lunar calendar.

06. Young Braves – 1984

Genre: indie rock, from: UK, for fans of: The Sherlocks, Catfish And The Bottlemen

Granted, Young Braves aren’t really newcomers. The band formerly known as Arcade Parade was founded back in 2013. Having spent the last two years touring with the likes of The Sherlocks and The Amazons, Young Braves have just dropped their new single 1984.
