Post Rome "Want To Believe"
Post Rome "Want To Believe"

Sunderland's Post Rome return with their massive new single "Want To Believe".


Soaring guitars stand head and shoulders atop this massive driving song. It powers along at a ferocious pace and earns the title of anthem with room to spare


Our rating: 8.9/10

Conrad Ashton "Time"
Conrad Ashton "Time"

At a little over two and a half minutes, it seems ironic that the song is titled so!


Its an acoustic driven, upbeat song with Conrad's distinctive gravelly vocals delivering the message with aplomb.


Our rating: 8.5/10



The Harriets "Café Disco"
The Harriets "Café Disco"

From the forthcoming album Hopefuls, "Café Disco" is a cracking introduction to Leeds-based four piece, The Harriets.


With a retro alt-pop sound, this is foot-tapping, head bopping feeling-good music at its very best!


Our rating: 9.1/10



Blond "Tainted Eyes"
Blond "Tainted Eyes"

Blond are a Sweden based duo with a lo-fi sound.


Tainted Eyes is an atmospheric alt-pop song in its entirety, with a great synth and guitar bed and spacey vocals and some unexpected chord changes to create a unique sound.


Our rating: 8.1/10



Slye "Waiting"

Slye's new single "Waiting" is absolute genius.


Combining elements of R'n'B, jazz and indie, "Waiting" demonstrates the exceptional voice that Slye possesses, and creates a truly brilliant performance all round.


It's difficult to find superlatives to do this song justice!


Our rating: 9.7/10

Some absolute gems here, and each of these artists deserve your support. Why not give them each a cheeky like?
