Mercury Prize 2020 shortlisted Kiwanuka looks inward and out, across widescreen sonic landscapes constructed in recording studios in London, Los Angeles and New York, and provides a showcase for the honey-poured mahogany of Michael Kiwanuka's voice.

A Virtue is the new single from Popcorn Fiend, and the second track to be lifted from the Scottish musician's debut album Distance, which occupies a space somewhere between the industrial rock of Nine Inch Nails and the melodic synth-pop of Chvrches.

Quintet Junodream are drawing on a wider palette of sounds for new single Easy Life, with post-rock and modern prog blending into their expansive mix of shoegaze and psychedelia. 

Bastille's new song, which features Blur guitarist Graham Coxon, might feel like a bit of a surprise release, not least to the band themselves, but as frontman Dan Smith says: “We finished the song and it felt urgent. We didn't want to sit on it.”

Brighton-based singer-songwriter and all-round alt-pop fireball Oz's debut single Money is a statement-of-intent, an uncompromising synthesis of Garbage's dark-hued rock/electronica crossover with the bass-heavy zest of contemporary alt-pop.

From synthesizers and computers to a full symphony orchestra, Richter's innovative work encompasses solo albums, ballets, concert hall performances, film and TV series, video art installations and theatre works. 

"Last year, I was a victim of a sexual assault whilst on holiday in Bangkok. What started as a fun night out ended up with me being lost for hours, drugged with something so strong that I forgot my own name. It was the scariest thing that's ever happened to me and I was traumatised."

Yellow Shark YellowShark yellowshark yllwshrk. yllwshrk are an amalgamation. Hailing from both sides of Hadrian's Wall, they are more at home in classical concert halls than the Camden dive bars, and more accustomed to bows and mallets than the amps and synths of the alt-rock scene.

The Big Moon have unveiled a new video for their latest single Why. The band will be heading to Brighton, in March 2021, in support of the single and new album, Walking Like We Do.
