Seeing Hands are a four-piece from Newcastle releasing their third single, ‘Love You Still’. Melancholic and 80s inspired, this track is a fine fixture to a well-oiled machine in terms of production. With support slots for Day Wave and Dream Wife behind them, their is some serious positive energy coming from these guys.

Nula (Luke Osborne and Diane N Adu-Gyamfi), hail from South East London, where the duo write alternative and Indie electronica with song structure that would compliment Jack Garrett.

They previously worked with producer Kwes and have quietly been making friends with  artists such as Novelist, Klein and Cosima.

Happyness are due to release their long-awaited follow-up “Write In” is released. Meanwhile, while we wait there is their new track ‘Bigger Glass Less Full’, which sees the three-piece emulate their first release. Take your college rock daydreams and soundtrack them with this gem.

Weslee dropped their debut single, ‘Gassed’, a slow indie electronica track that that unravels and winds its way through weary times. Building in momentum and finishing with a emphatic series of beats and synth pad pinches, ‘Gassed’ is a strong sign of intent from the duo.

VARVARA from Finland have released a new single called ‘Weatherman’ via their own label. It is essentially guitar powerpop that takes in that late 90s and early 00s sound. It is a journey from start to finish, without ever seeing to cease on powering-through.

Brighton trio BOA have dropped latest single ‘Steal It’. A laid-back indie-pop adventure that would suit KYKO fans or even Shura who the band have both supported in recent months. The lyrics fallen in to romanticism while the track’s melodies head straight for the beach.

Following the success of ‘Battles’, Columbia Mills return with their new single ‘Head Start’, taken from their upcoming debut album, produced by Rob Kirwan (Hozier, U2 & Depeche Mode). Tipped for big things, get in early on these guys.

DAUNT has slow-pop well and truly covered. ‘Unbearable Light’ is a track from the debut EP that is haunting and vividly dark in the same time. There are elements of James Vincent McMorrow, Glass Animals, and even Phoenix to create a moving synth-pop masterpiece.
