Mabes – Radio
Mabes‘ ‘Radio’ single is a sparkling pop gem. Brimming with the spirit of an Essex gal, Mabes has produced a nostalgic single nods to her lifelong obsession with Nashville folklore. Speaking on the new single Mabes states, “I wrote Radio about hearing a song that takes you back years… in this instance it reminds me of a past relationship that I look back on fondly. The lyrics mention how I always skip this song, but I hear it in the back of a taxi and it’s in my head for ages reminding me of that past love.”

Chapter and Verse – After Midnight
Big and bolshy, Chapter and Verse have laid down confrontational single, ‘After Midnight’. Speaking of the track, one of the members says, “Musically, ‘After Midnight’ is one of our more guitar-driven songs. Josh and I had a lot of fun playing with diverse tones and I think that variation keeps it interesting. There’s also some subtle pop production in there which hopefully people will start to hear after repeat listens. But overall it’s a big old rock song and we can’t wait to deafen you with it at a live show!”
