This has blown my mind away. Haven’t been this excited about a new artist in a a long time. Talay Riley is pretty unique in my eyes- when you first give him a listen it just sounds like generic RnB, but the more you listen the more it sounds different. You might recognise him from featuring in Chipmunk’s ‘ Look For Me’. Check out here.
New Zealand based indie electro type band- really lovely optimistic sounds. Check out here.
If you’ve been following my Skinnerisms this month, then you’ll probably like Skittles. This Manchester based MC mixes his own style with a little bit of The Streets and some Scroobius Pip along the way.
Click here to download Skittles’ free EP called ‘prE:P’, in anticipation for his upcoming album, ‘Poor with £100 Trainers’, coming out soon on Broke’n’£nglish‘s label Estate. Definitely one to look out for!
These two girls freak the shit out of me. But they have a weird captivating Simon & Garfunkel vibe about them. I’m not sure if it’s an act, or if they genuinely are this scary. Check out here.
Skrein has been around for a little while in the UK hip hop/ MC scene. His track ‘Reach’ for the Adulthood film is class, and reminds me a lot of Plan B’s first album. Check out here.
French power electropop. Very good. Check out here.
I’ve been meaning to feature someone called Joe Danger on here for a while, and it now seems that he’s changed his name to Antics… I think you would class this music as classic ‘wonky pop’, no? Check out here.
A crisp sound coming from this London based act. Sexy pop. Check out here.
Happy and simple British folk. Easy to listen to and fun. Check out here.
A sort of Stevie Wonder/ Ne-Yo/ Justin Timberlake vibe with some Indian beats thrown in when needed. This is so good! Check out here.
Great pop band founded by former Razorlight drummer Andy Burrows in June 2009. I defy anyone not to cheer up after listening to this song. They’re playing London next month and I’m going to go see them me thinks. Check out here.
Dubstep with shoegaze. Check out here.
This is the sort of music you want to hear in a sunny park somewhere with some friends around you. It’s got a soft innocent about it. Check out here.
French electro rock with a bit of indie. Check out here.
