This Cyril Hahn remix of Destiny’s Child’s ‘Say My Name’ is sublime.

This isn’t technically a new band but I love this live performance of Darkstar’s new single.
No one knows who this is by yet, they will be revealed soon apparently. It’s pretty good though, I see radio-play potential with this. I have nothing to link to with this other than their YouTube.
Dreamy, dark, seductive and atmospheric indie from Texas that packs a punch. Check out here.
Sometimes you hear something that grabs you and doesn’t let you go til the very end- and this song is case in hand. It’s by Zee Avi, a Malaysian artist who is already making huge impact (she has over 200k likes on Facebook). I’m ashamed to say it’s the first I’ve heard of her, but better late than never. Check out here.
This is a little different to what I usually post on here but it’s just too nice to not share with you all. And the story behind the music is extraordinary. This score by We Are Are We was meant to be part of a soundtrack to a mystery big-budget Hollywood film that was scrapped months before it’s release. It’s scary to think music like this might never have been heard.
If you like your Ed Sheeran, you’ll probably love this. Frank Hamilton has aimed to write, record and release a new single each week this year, and so far he’s managed to keep it up amazingly. This is the track for week 49, and was recorded with super producer Si Hulbert. Check out here.
The Leftover Cuties are and they have just released an EP with Christmas covers which are undeniably adorable.
