Fake It Flowers

Fake It Flowers is the highly anticipated debut album from British singer-songwriter beabadoobee.

The 1975
Notes On A Conditional Form

I’m sure there’s a tingle of anticipation for a new album by The 1975. This one is called Notes On A Conditional Form. The band have been making headlines for their support of environmental campaigner Greta Thunberg as much as they have for their music. With their care for the environment in mind, they have chosen not to shrink wrap the CDs and LPs. Good on ‘em.

Rina Sawayama

After years of stupendous singles and EPs, modern dance music cult icon Rina Sawayama finally preps her first full-length album. Sawayama does everything that long-term fans of hers would expect it to, harking back to shiny, gleaming Nineties R&B pop in its production values but always looking towards the future in its sensibilities. 

King Nun

King Nun are an energetic, charismatic, chaotic indie band from Twickenham, London. Mass is their debut LP which follows on from singles such as Tulip, a song which lands somewhere between Mudhoney and Urusei Yatsura. If this doesn’t work out for them, they have a back-up plan - forming a Nickelback tribute band. Let’s hope it all works out then.

The Japanese House
Good At Falling

Got a few ‘Japanese’ bands knocking around at the moment, haven’t we. Not as in bands from Japan, as in bands called things like Japanese Breakfast and The Japanese House. The latter is the solo project of Amber Bain, who has released this here debut LP on Dirty Hit - a label set up by, among others, the late Ugo Ehiogu. Good At Falling is a collection of synth-ified indie-pop tunes in the vein of mid-period Bon Iver.

Benjamin Francis Leftwich

You’d think Benjamin Francis Leftwich’s name would be good for anagrams but it doesn’t seem so. He’s certainly no Neil Warnock in that respect. Anyway, Gratitude is the York singer/songwriter’s third album following on from Last Smoke Before The Snowstorm (2011) and After The Rain (2016). Crystal clear vinyl and CD on Dirty Hit.

Pale Waves
All The Things I Never Said EP

Debut EP All The Things I Never Said from indie pop outfit Pale Waves, a quartet hailing from Manchester. Taking subtle hints from 80s synth-pop acts like The Cure and much heavier ones from the likes of The 1975 (the group are endorsed by Matty Healy himself). Out on clear red 12" vinyl, on Dirty Hit.

Pale Waves
My Mind Makes Noises

Their minds may make noises, but it’s the ones they get out of their instruments that we’re more concerned with over at Norman Towers. Pale Waves is the band. My Mind Makes Noises is the LP - their first LP in fact. It contains some already-massive songs (‘There’s A Honey’, ‘Television Romance’) as well as some soon-to-be-massive songs (‘Eighteen’, ‘Black’). The group would say it sounds like the Cocteau Twins, The Jesus & Mary Chain, maybe even Madonna if they were feeling particularly flush that day.


QTY are a New York band doing the New York rock thing, and this self-titled album is your first full-length opportunity to get stuck in yourself. QTY is no-nonsense business, with daily life stories told over wired guitars. And Suede fans should listen out for the little details of Bernard Butler’s production skills too. On Dirty Hit.

Wolf Alice
Visions Of A Life

Wolf Alice are back, and with a bang if scorching lead single 'Yuk Foo' is anything to go by. Your favourite alt-rockers have returned with Visions Of A Life, what promises to be a lauded released - which will continue the band's unique blend of dreamy harmonies and searing guitar riffs. Strap yourselves in for this one. 


They may be almost impossible to google but Birmingham two piece Superfood produce lad-friendly indie tunes with sample-led dub leading to the sort of technicolour sound we once heard in the days of Brit pop. Generally tunes to bounce around to, they have their more reflective moments too and aren't afraid to feck with the formula. 

Wolf Alice
My Love Is Cool

The debut album from London’s Wolf Alice, My Love Is Cool take further leaps into rock territory following their folksy beginnings. Very in tune with the modern strain of motorik krautrock whilst retaining an ear for melody, it’s like a diluted Sonic Youth for the kids. Out on CD and vinyl double LP from Dirty Hit.

Marika Hackman
We Slept At Last

Finally out with a full length album, Marika Hackman’s voice is a gift. We Slept At Last is not only a pretty debut, but it’s also by sung with poetic force by an artist obsessed with the literary. The songs are pretty but have a strange density to them. All in all: pretty sure you can't go wrong with it.
