Solange could be set to release new material in just a few hours.

The singer spoke to T Magazine last year, and promised something new by the end of 2018.

The project has yet to materialise, but with Black History Month drawing to a close Solange has re-ignited her socials.

A series of teasers have emerged, while Pitchfork points out that the smart URL used by streaming services reveals the title 'When I Get Home'.

Given that Solange has also shared a hotline at 281-330-8004, the phone number that once also belonged to Houston rapper Mike Jones, could there be a Houston theme on the new record?

It's likely to drop at Midnight, so keep 'em peeled…

Belgian-American musician Speelburg is searching after something unique.

Trodden down paths hold no interest for him – this is all about unexplored territory, fresh vistas to nail down and survey.

New project 'Character Actor' arrives on April 5th, a collection of other-worldly, startlingly unique electro-pop vignettes.

Take new single 'Headlights'. An electro-pop squelcher that sits somewhere between L.A. Priest and Metronomy, it's both arresting and completely surreal, occuping its own plane.

He explains: "'Headlights' was co-produced with my long-time buddy and collaborator Laurie James Ross. His talent knows no bounds. We originally tried to write something completely different. At the end of a session which had gone in a very weird and very different direction, and with maybe 10 minutes to go, we started messing around with recording single voice notes through his OP-1. I think we kinda knew from those first 10 minutes we had something cool." 

"We recorded some live drums then added that bassline. That’s my favorite bassline on this album. It’s a real cool thing when you can get the bass to be one of the main hooks in your track."  

It's not all frisky and fun, though. 'Headlights' is about embracing the new, pushing yourself to accept fresh challenges.

He continues: "Lyrically, It’s a song about going somewhere completely new and alien and throwing yourself into it. Sink or swim, just figure it out. It’s about not being able to stay put and always finding a million reasons to be busy. We went to the moon 50 years ago. That was a big deal.  I really hope that in 50 years, future generations look back on the release of this single with the same reverence."

Sweet Whirl is a new project from Esther Edquist, a figure who has worked with a number of different musicians in her native Australia.

Based in Melbourne, Sweet Whirl has a bittersweet countrified touch, with her folk-hewn side matched by some dreamy electric guitar.

Working with Chapter Music on her next release, incoming EP 'Love Songs & Poetry' is set to drop on May 3rd – pre-order HERE.

New song 'Strange News' leads the way, and it finds Sweet Whirl exhibiting a gentle sense of grace, an unhurried sense of beauty.

There's a slight late evening feel, a drowsiness combined with a relaxed longing. Esther says:

"This song is like a warm inebriation, it's about wooing, trying to woo, trying to hold onto a vibe as it slips through your fingers, out of your reach, coo-cooing it back to you, hanging for a kiss…"

Night House have a hushed tone; quiet but exact, their every move is precise, it's just that they don't make a lot of moves.

Need more convincing? Well, the Brighton project will release new single 'Unfold' on March 1st, and it's a wonderful example of their restrained songwriting.

Hushed tones interlocking with sedate elements of electronics, reference points could include everyone from Bon Iver to James Blake, alongside Brian Eno's more ambient works.

Written to soothe the heartbreak of a close friend, there's a meditative quality, a feeling of drifting through moods before reaching resolution.

Night House comment:

"'Unfold' focuses on the moments of change in relationship that is breaking down. The track was written for a close after his breakup with his boyfriend. I wrote 'Unfold' as an attempt to comfort my friend that this pain, however hard, in time will pass."

It all started when Katie Schottland broke her foot.

Spending a lot of time indoors recuperating, she started to pay more attention to her acoustic guitar, becoming absorbed in its universe of possibilities.

Drafting her own take on folk's more progressive wing, a debut EP under the moniker Swimming Bell followed and it thrust the Brooklyn singer into the spotlight.

Lush, Laurel Canyon scenes given a 21st century makeover, her gorgeous songwriting was equipped with a thirst for the left field.

Debut album 'Wild Sight' lands on April 5th, and it finds Swimming Bell spreading her wings ever further.

We're able to share dreamy new cut '1988' and it's opaque sonics turn translucent under the beaming light of Katie Schottland's vocals.

A new video has been shot for the track, and we're delighted to be able to share it before anyone else.

Beginning as a collection of demos recorded in Amber Bain’s bedroom, these stories of her recent breakup appear as tales straight from her diary as everything is laid bare. It’s a personal and vulnerable set of stories but the confident delivery and purring pop rushes see the melancholic messages act as an invitation to dance.

Lifelong influences like The Beach Boys, Bon Iver and James Blake are clear throughout, Amber Bain’s harmonies and sampling methods, a constant feature of The Japanese House sound, are executed perfectly here.

Meanwhile the song structuring, something Bain has always focused on, is clear and distinct. The verses offering a coherent narrative, the choruses acting as an opportunity for Amber to release any remaining pain, angst or energies atop of synth-rushes and pop hooks.

The pulsating opener, ‘Went To Meet Her’, creates an eerie, mysterious feel but darkness soon morphs into light as the album springs to life with a quick one-two of the infectious singles, ‘Maybe You’re The Reason’ and ‘We Talk All The Time’. They are two of the album’s bravest tracks, the latter dealing with the toxicity of maintaining a relationship that has ultimately already ended – it’s brutally honest.

This record sees Bain letting go of the past, represented by the constantly forward-moving motion of the album. ‘somethingfartoogoodtofeel’ sees galloping drums propel the track forward, the acoustic strums and classical strings are a tender touch, but it’s a determined track that exudes with Amber’s newfound confidence.

On ‘Wild’, Bain breaks out into a monologue, barely stopping for a break. It’s as if she’s unable to pause for breath until she gets whatever is on her mind out into the open.

And whilst the album-closing, acoustic rendition of old-time, fan-favourite, ‘I Saw You In A Dream’ may seem like a lazy way to end the album, it instead comes across as Amber’s way of reminiscing about the past, paying ode to her earlier tracks and the time they were written, whilst simultaneously showing her artistic development and growth in maturity.

'Good At Falling' ultimately paints a picture of Amber Bain’s journey following the end of her most recent relationship. Whilst lyrically, it is a portrayal of insecurity and pain, sonically it is a bright, glistening piece of pop magic that merges the quintessential style seen on The Japanese House’s three EPs with new points of exploration that only increases the excitement around this enigmatic superstar-in-waiting.

9/10

Manchester duo Hobby Club seem to interlock perfectly.

The kind of disarmingly charming indie pop the city has long since made its own, their literate, off piste songwriting has a deeply idiosyncratic feel.

Incoming project 'Video Days' EP is due via Heist Or Hit on March 8th, recorded in an ex shipyard canteen.

There's a touching DIY quality to the sound, something that simply makes Hobby Club rather more endearing, like a bright sunny day reflected in a damp pavement puddle.

New cut 'Bedroom' is a case in point – on the surface it's pastoral jangle pop recalls Real Estate or Swimming Tapes, while lyrically lies something darker.

Singer Beth Truscott explains that the song is about heartbreak “turning you from a reasonable human being into a crumpled heap of gelatinous matter and tears, incapable of making a phone call or keeping track of your personal effects.”

The upbeat melody serves a further purpose – it shadows an attempt to retain composure when actually “going home to a darkened room becomes the best option after any minor setback whatsoever.”

Beth finishes: “this song, in essence, is me ripping my heart out and showing it to all of you, in the hope that the person who I wanted to see it the most would.”

Kristina Bazan has devoted herself to forging connections.

Someone who thrives on meeting others, she's conjured this community around her interests and passions which almost has an independent life of its own.

Steeped in fashion but interested in literate, music, and performance, her songwriting taps into each of these worlds and more.

Upcoming album 'Honey & Venom' is a work of real depth, with Kristina's supple vocal delivery set against some astute songwriting.

Album highlight 'The Devil' is a real fan favourite, but we've managed to nab this extremely intimate acoustic rendering.

Just Kristina Bazan's voice and a guitar, it's a beautiful performance, charming, soothing, and delightful.
