The Wha
Innocents

The Wha are a new indie band from Kilkenny in Ireland. Their sound seemingly comes from a love of The Jam and Elvis Costello with nods to more recent bands such as The Strokes and The Vaccines. Innocents is their debut single which you may catch them playing on tour in support of Fur and Two Door Cinema Club.

Alfie Templeman
Sunday Morning Cereal EP

‘BBC Music Introducing…’ favourite Alfie Templeman unveils his second EP release at the age of just 16. Presented on 10” cream vinyl, Sunday Morning Cereal sees the prodigiously talented ‘indie R&B’ musician follow up on his brilliantly received 2018 single ‘Like An Animal’. 

Casi & The Blind Harpist
Sunflower Seeds EP

Debut EP from Casi & The Blind Harpist. On Sunflower Seeds EP Casi shows off her powerful voice and knack for the expansive and soaring. The throughline is a good understanding of the music of her Welsh and Irish heritage which serve to distinguish her from fellow soar-merchants Florence & The Machine. On Chess Club.

Billie Marten
Feeding Seahorses By Hand

Ripon's finest sweet voiced folk singer returns with her second album. Isabella Sophie Tweddle  - for that is her real name - made waves with her earlier more sensibly titled album Writing of Blues and Yellows which could have easily garnered comparisons to Laura Veirs. This time she's stripped it back to a more lo-fi sound. Could be interesting.   


Forever Neverland

Forever Neverland is the second album by MØ, it comes four years after her debut, No Mythologies To Follow. The Danish singer, who is 30 - a fact that the press release deems important, has collaborated with several artists on the album to aid her pop/indie/electronic ways. These include American DJ and producer, Diplo and singer Charli XCX. LP and CD on Chess Club.

Billie Marten
Milk & Honey

Nice ethereal acoustic twiddlings from silky-voiced Ripon-based songstress Isabella Sophie Tweddle, aka Billie Marten. A Youtube sensation at the age of 12, Marten is now getting some serious attention, including a nomination for BBC Sound of 2016. And she's still only 17. According to her Wikipedia page she is, apparently, obsessed with alpacas. Interesting, but there's no mention of any llama-like shenanigans on 'Milk and Honey'.

Sundara Karma
Youth Is Only Ever Fun In Retrospect

You must have some lovely karma, to encounter such a gift on your life's travels. Some might argue that Youth Is Only Fun in Retrospect, but listening to Sundara Karma’s energetic and youthful debut album is already fun while you’re doing it. Just be ready to be bob your head and hum catchy riffs all day long. 

Billie Marten
Writing of Blues and Yellows

Emerging out of the delightful North Yorkshire city (yup it has a cathedral) of Ripon, Bille Marten (actual name Isabella Sophie Tweddle) has a voice made out of some kind of silk-like substance and writes moody acoustic songs that tug at any heartstrings you may still have left. This is her much anticipated debut which on initial listen could draw comparisons with early Laura Marling.  

Swim Deep
Mothers

Swim Deep are an indie-pop quintet from Birmingham. Mothers is the band’s second album. Their sound is seemingly influenced by the credible pop acts of the early-to-mid ‘80s. The band are part of the emerging B-Town scene in Digbeth along with Peace. On coloured vinyl LP and CD.

Swim Deep
Namaste

Highly rated Birmingham indie-pop five piece Swim Deep have a new album out soon entitled Mothers. To wet your palate, a 7” of Namaste will be preceding its release. The single will be backed with Everything is Possible which is exclusive to this release. It's limited to 500 copies so don't hang around!

Swim Deep
One Great Song and I Could Change The World

Interesting to release a song named One Great Song And I Could Change The World: the boast seems arrogant but the word ‘could’ suggests that this song is not a great one after all… This 7” of sweeping indie pop from Swim Deep is in a limited edition, released as part of RCA Records’ Chess Club.
