Ata|antA is the new single from Dutch-Zimbabwean singer-songwriter Rina Mushonga. Inspired by the Greek mythological figure ‘Atalanta’ in Ovid’s Metamorphosis, the track encapsulates the strong and independent figure.

Once a duo, now a trio. Dublin’s Kid Karate were known for their instense guitar and drum dualings, often boosted by occasional synth beats. Now with Ian McFarlane, their bassist who contributed to their recording sessions and album end product, they take on the world once again with ‘No Way’. There is an 80s track reference to it’s sound, and a 90s approach to the songwriting

Family Friends drop new single, ‘I’m Like You’, a punching indie track that shows it’s influences of Stone Roses or Oasis based guitar chorus with melancholic moods and 90s rock style.

A promising young artist, Rosie Carney is making waves following her stint on a major label when she was still at school. Now, Rosie is on independent London boutique Label X Novo ( Mt. Wolf) and enjoying the freedom that comes with it. Echoes of Lucy Rose here, delicate and captivating.

On the edge of Manchester, Ambiere have a relaxed, ambient and at times atmospheric track on their hands with ‘Tree of Life’. Dotted guitar pickings that are accompanied by dramatic drumbeats and synth pulses.

London’s Strong Asian Mothers blend hip-hip and trap music to the structure of pop sensibilites. Fast rising from underground gigs to confident strides as Ones to Watch, new track ‘Just Another’ is taken from their forthcoming EP due out in March.
