Debut albums have been confirmed for Torres (Jan 31), Flawes (Jan 31) and Drama (Feb 14). The Orielles, Gengahr and Seafret have announced their sophomore albums.

The 1975 will follow up 2018’s A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships with a new album titled Notes On A Conditional Form (Feb 21). Blossoms have announced their third album Foolish Loving Spaces for January 31st. Mystery Jets also have a new album in the works, titled A Billion Heartbeats, which has been pushed back to April 3rd.
