01. Walt Disco – Past Tense

Genre: post-punk, from: UK, for fans of: The Ninth Wave, Sparks, Echo & The Bunnymen

Having toured with the likes of Sports Team and Interpol, Glaswegian post-punk quintet have just dropped their latest single Past Tense via Los Angeles based singles label IHC 1NFINITY. The anthemic vocals and soaring synths not only give you chills but perfect 80s nostalgia.

02. Gon von Zola – 100% Risk of Death

Genre: indie rock, from: UK, for fans of: Kaiser Chiefs, Art Brut

Originally from the German town of Leipzig, songwriter/producer Gon von Zola moved to London where he met his Welsh riot grrrl songwriting partner. Having released an album last year, 100% Risk Of Death is their second single of 2019 and combines catchy synths with pounding beats.

03. Lui Hill – I Owe You

Genre: indie pop, from: DE, for fans of: Roosevelt, Lany

German songwriter/producer Lui Hill gives you the perfect summer jam to kick back and relax to. Lui describes the song as a “devoted 3:42 minutes to his mom”, who was diagnoses with dementia. It’s not only a beautiful thank you to a parent but also a chilled summerly tune to dream the day away to.

04. Philip Brooks – I Don’t Know If I Ever Wanna Go Back Home

Genre: Electro pop, From: UK, for fans of: The Band Camino, The 1975

Another dreamy summer anthem arrives in the form of Philip Brooks’ new single I Don’t Know If I Ever Wanna Go Back Home. The track is the perfect song for your next road trip, be it for a well deserved holiday or a ride to a festival. Either way, you won’t be likely to wanna go back home any time soon.

05. Tia Gostelow – Get To It

Genre: singer songwriter, From: AUS, for fans of: Marika Hackman, Angie McMahon

Having released her debut album last year, Tia Gostelow made quite a name for herself in her homeland of Australia. She has toured with the likes of Frightened Rabbit and was invited to SXSW. Get To It is her latest single on which she commented:

Get To It is about not waiting until you think something is perfect to do it, not following the norm and doing things on your own terms. Just getting out there and getting shit done, how you want to do it and not feeling restricted by age or experience. This is a new mindset for me, becoming more self-awareness and not allowing my own fears to hold me back and keep me from being the best version of myself, regardless of who likes it or not.

06. Weird Milk – Honey, I’m Around

Genre: indie pop, from: UK, for fans of: The Academic, Vampire Weekend

It’s hard to believe that Weird Milk hail from the north of London. Their sound not only conveys reminiscences of The Beach Boys but also channels that of Vampire Weekend. Having supported the likes of Frank Carter, Pip Blom, Thyla and Lazy Day, the four piece will appear at this weekend’s Truck festival before embarking on a headline tour in October.
