SQUID - June 3rd 2021

Squid’s output is the musical equivalent of the inventions made in Dexter’s Laboratory. Though there are countless bands whose work feels like grand scientific experiments, none better encapsulates the nerdy joy of toying with sounds quite like the mercurial Brighton-originated quintet. Their debut album 'Bright Green Field' is their most concrete set of findings yet.

GREENTEA PENG - June 10th 2021

The London artist sits in the nexus between jazz, neo-soul, hip-hop, and dub, merging these into a distinctive and totally unique sound. Debut album 'Man Made' is her opus - sitting at 18 tracks, it's a huge body of work, one imbued with real passion. Greentea Peng labels the record "an exploration of self and sound, an offering of healing, a provocation of Hu Man spirit soul...". The lead single visuals are immediately striking and set in a shadowy, sinister cityscape.

GRIFF - June 17th 2021

An unwavering tastemaker, Griff is pushing beyond the bounds of emotional electro-pop to achieve something greater — the 20-year-old British singer-songwriter is gracefully carving out her legacy. Griff’s pursuit of success is one rooted in a dedication to being uniquely herself. The upcoming mixtape, ‘One Foot In Front Of The Other’, is emblematic of this very graft.

The band exist in a paradox where so-called high and low art intersect; this is noticeable throughout 'For the first time', making it a unique listen (where else would you hear references to Kanye West amid a fusion of jazz and post-punk?). Nothing less than a milestone in modern British guitar music. In some ways, they are the result of the Internet: 'For the first time' is the sound of being overwhelmed by information and the easy access to art and pop culture. Seemingly, it’s because of this that their influences are all over the place.
