By Juliette Jagger

Artist: Fonda “Seeing Stars”
Album:
Sell Your Memories


This one’s all about the classic dreamy pop hooks and fuzzed out 90’s alt-rock appeal.

Sounds like: 90’s Brit rock.

Artist: Yukon Blonde “Guns”
Album:
Tiger Talk


Killer harmonies from Yukon Blonde on this one – gut wrenching and enough to make you miss home.

Sounds like:  Uncluttered.

Artist: The Hics “Cold Air”
Album:
Single


There’s something so delicate and yet so suggestive about this song. It slow rides along a ticking R&B backbeat, with beautiful airy double and even triple part harmonies, and is tied together by a weeping jazz sax.

Sounds like: The best part? This is a 6-piece band from south London, all aged between 18-21.

Artist: Naama Kates “Kings For The Day”
Album:
Kings For The Day


“Kings For A Day” is really a quirky take on classical jazz. Namma Kates’ knows just how to play her spoken word poetics against her lush and mischievous vocal style, to cause a little friction.

Sounds like: Jazz-pop

Link/Listen/Watch:


Artist: Burywood “Blackberry Scowl”
Album:
Some Kind of Golden Age


This is the second song from Burywood that I’ve really taken a shining to, but it remains his discerning lyrics, and on this one, even early youthful Beatles-esc pop melody that keeps me coming back.

Sounds like: Taking time.
