James Blake releases the atmospheric ‘Are You Even Real?’, in partnership with Apple’s Behind The Mac campaign. Another contender to the evergrowing back catalogue of comforting masterpieces from the British producer and multi-instrumentalist.
We all know a Daniel, or perhaps we even are one – the one that gets “lost in the sauce, stoned, lost in some existential fear or lost his way in some VR game”, yet has so much to prove. Declan McKenna gives us a delicious taste of his forthcoming album, ‘Zeros’.

Refreshing alt-pop artist Connie Constance bares all and dives into “an ocean of narcotics” in new single ‘James’, summing up how we all want to feel and act right now – to get a bit squiffy and then crawl back to bed.
Sounding particularly Glass Animals, and more instrumentally upbeat than previous releases, duo Tom Higham and Ben Fletcher – aka Aquilo – return after a two-year hiatus with the ‘Sober’ EP, featuring ‘Moving On’.
Singer and producer MAX RAD takes a positive stance with new single ‘It’ll All Be Fine’. Comparing the track to an out-of-body experience, he advises to look at the bigger picture, and stop internalising. Wise words.
Sounds like: Tash Sultana, Foals, Chet Faker, Honne, Ben Khan
Self-produced/directed DIY music videos are becoming almost a necessity given the current world climate, however, some are executed better than others, and this statement rings true with the mesmerising release from Celeste, out now on Polydor Records.
Beautifully simple and graceful, the video for ‘I Can See The Change’ doesn’t try too hard to be noticed, instead, the focus is put on supporting the track itself, and allowing the attention of the viewer to remain on Celeste’s arresting vocal tones.
The video features iconic and never more relevant footage from the March on Washington in 1963, at which Martin Luther King Jr delivered his historic “I Have a Dream” speech.
Produced by FINNEAS, this modern-day jazz ballad will move you to the core.
