Wolf Alice
September Girls
Hunter and the Bear

Likeable noise pop on vinyl only debut single from Dublin-based female five piece, September Girls
Promising debut single from harmonic London-based folk trio, Hunter and The Bear
Abrasive and intense but bleakly humorous debut album from controversial Derbyshire-based sibling duo, Drenge

Fawn Spots/Scott and Charlene's Wedding
Surf City
Friday Club
Turnpike Glow

Excellent garage rock on 7” split single between Yorkshire’s Fawn Spots and Australia’s Scott and Charlene’s Wedding, released to coincide with a joint UK tour
Laid back and summery surf pop on second album from New Zealand-based band, Surf City
Instantly infectious and catchy free download single from Birmingham-based indie pop-punk outfit, Friday Club
Upbeat and quirky combination of indie rock, psychedelia and pop on second EP from Rome-formed but now London-based band, Turnpike Glow

OK Social Club
Skint and Demoralised
Fuzzy Lights

Fantastic grunge rock on debut album from Melbourne-based all girl band, Valentiine
Monotonous indie guitar rock on debut album from Edinburgh-based band the OK Social club, whose talkes of drunkenness and nostalgia quickly become repetitive and dull
Socially aware yet upbeat third album from Skint and Demoralised, the project of Wakefield-based poet and musician Matt Abbott
Dreamy folk on beautifully packaged third album from Cambridge-based group, Fuzzy Lights


Chilled out and enjoyable, but not especially distinctive second album from Canadian duo, the Zolas
