A new rock prodigy has arrived. Endorsed by the likes of Angel Olsen and H.E.R., 21-year old Aziya Aldridge-Moore's songs soundtrack the intense rapture of emotions marking the transition from teen to twenty-something.
Debut EP 'We Speak Of Tides' evokes the currents of the sea to present a tale of flux and turbulence. On 'Marathon', spectral chords morph into stadium-sized strums as Aziya motions towards deliverance; 'Slip' is the distorted tale of a date laced with regret and grimy verve; a similar strain of ambivalence clouds 'Heaven For Me', a groove-laden number showcasing Aziya's ability to subtly shift the tonality of her vocals and sonics, anchored by an instantly accessible alt-pop sheen.
With all the momentum behind her, Aziya's carving out a lane entirely her own. Remember her name and read our full interview HERE.

Each of us reacted to lockdown in a different way.For some, it came as a blow - for others, though, it afforded space to explore something different.
VC Pines sits in the latter camp, with the songwriting using the empty spaces of 2020 as a means to hone and research his craft. Reflecting on this, he says: "It was a period of time for me where I was really able to just stop for a second and think about where I am right now as a person and as an artist, and focus on the things I really yearn for - Where I want to be, the things I want to do and also to reflect on things that have happened in my life and conversations that have shaped me."
New EP 'Concrete' is out now, with VC Pines set to play a sold out show at London's St Pancras Old Church on July 28th. The title song is a beaut, and it's construction helped VC Pines to bring the EP as a whole into sharp focus.

Rudie Edwards knows how to construct a commanding vocal. The UK riser caught attention with her recent single 'Forgetting', and the way her voice would rise and fall across the melody.
Devoutly focussed during the creative process - she co-produces everything that carried her name - Rudie Edwards finesses her talents on this potent new single. 'Worst Ways' underlines her status as a significant newcomer, with the Dover-raised singer previewing her incoming EP.
'Worst Ways' is all punchy drumming and dreamy guitars, with Rudie Edwards placing her voice front and centre. Severing emotional ties, 'Worst Ways' is the sound of this talented songwriter laying claim to her own lane.
The video airs through Clash - tune in now.

London bedroom pop auteur Orlando has shared his new single 'Blue Ferrari'. Out now, it finds the songwriter worked on his own terms, tender and open while still displaying his ambitions.
It's a lo-fi glow up, with 'Blue Ferrari' leaning on his jazz tones, while also utilising intimate palm mute effects on his guitar. There's a quirky element to his lyricism, with Orlando happy to play the game by his own rules, no matter the cost.
Orlando explains: “I wrote and self-produced blue ferrari in my bedroom at the end of 2020. The song is about being a super picky lovelorn teenager. It’s rare to find the right person, just like a blue Ferrari.”
Tune in now.
