Singer-songwriter-producer Kate Lomas was a real musical highlight of 2018 with her track Drink 2 U. Since then she’s been releasing excellent and energising pop, including Happy Like This.
I’m an unashamed fanboy for Robyn, and for me she can do no wrong. Recent album Honey surprised people by the way it encapsulated a less upbeat, less predictable but still reflective and wholly intelligent sound, but I loved every minute. But it’s always worth remembering that she still knows how to write a catchy tune though, as is the case with Ever Again.

In the lead up to her new Take Off EP which is due out 21st June, Swedish musical allrounder Hildur Hoglind has dropped the moodily magnificent My Heart (Won’t Skip The Beat That It Should). Have a listen and you’ll know why we liked it so much.

Spanish electronic-synthwave quartet NAVVIER have taken an unusual concept for a song but created something to treasure, all to go along with the jaw-dropping video (which contains clips from Supermarkt) . Check out Antonomasia below.
