All The Rest shares addictive new single ‘Backburner’.
Starting with a simple bassline, it’s not long until Baylee Waller’s falsetto vocals kick in, elevating the already smooth number into a contagious overdose of funk n soul.
Formed by four best friends in a basement just south of Atlanta – most famously known as the filming location of The Walking Dead – All The Rest captures the complexity of life’s ups, downs, and complete blindsides with a unique sense of rhythm. Their lyrics are honest and tell stories of their attempt to get through their youth while capturing the essence of those who are “all the rest” of society.
Speaking about their latest single, Baylee explains, “I wanted to write a song about the people who just want to use me. The kind of people who only hit you up when they want something from you. When you have nothing to offer, you’re nothing to them.”
Teeside-based sibling duo Cattle & Cane are back with a corker of a tune.
Their new single, ‘Mexico’ is as sun-drenched as it can get. Produced by Pete Hammerton (KylieMinogue, The Shires, WanderingHearts, TomGregory), the duo have made a real statement with the direction of their sound – this is ambitious, radio-friendly pop for the modern ear.
Dream-pop story teller Harry Nathan has just shared his debut EP, ‘Songs About Dreams About Her’, a piece of work true to himself.
A complete DIY project, the Australian producer/singer/songwriter/DJ ends the five-track EP with ‘Blue Eyed Girl,’ a closing and contemplation on the relationship as well as a little peek into the sound and direction of Harry’s production evolution on his next project.
Introducing 22 year old Swedish songwriter Naah, who has dropped an absolute banger with C. Gold, called ‘Wake Up’.
A background in the indie rock and pop world, Naah’s release is refreshingly catchy. Not wanting to be pigeonholed as pop or electro, Naah has born a love child of modern dance-music and old-fashion disco.

We don’t usually share EPs on the site, but given the fact, we have already featured most of Noé‘s music on the site, it seems fitting to share the Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter’s debut EP ‘ibynoé’.
It’s a proud collection of work that marks an end in Noé’s current musical chapter of dark and quirky indie, electro and R&B. We can’t wait to see what’s next.
Time to strip it back a little with London-based singer-songwriter Hedara‘s latest single, ‘Numb’.
Hedara (aka Scarlet Billham) graduated London’s famous BRIT School, alongside Freya Ridings and others, and enjoyed some time performing under different alias’ and bands. It was only after a near-death experience, narrowly escaping a diabetic coma, that she learnt a harrowing lesson and took stock of what’s important in life.
Slowly finding her way back into music, she began working with different songwriters and producers on before finding a connection with Carey Willetts (DuaLipa, FreyaRidings, DermotKennedy). Together they co-wrote and produced eight tracks, three of which now form the EP ‘Slow’, which includes the single ‘Numb’.
Speaking of the track, Hedara explains,
“Numb is probably the most honest song I’ve written. I wrote it when I was going through a tough time, and although people were around to support me, I was also being told how to feel. I was feeling everything but being made to feel nothing at all.”
