Tommy Lefroy – Vampires
Alt-pop girls Tommy Lefroy – aka Tessa Mouzourakis and Wynter Bethel – share the soothing ‘Vampires,’ just in time for Halloween.
It’s a laidback rock track from the transatlantic duo. About staying with someone through trying times, it really exposes delicate and soothing vocal delivery.

Carol Ades – Through
LA-based Carol Ades (pronounced addis) shares ‘Through,’ the title track of her debut EP.
With echoes of a soundtrack for a 90’s cult film, ‘Through’ marks a powerful reclamation of personal artistry for the New Jersey-born talent, who has penned penned fan favourite hits with Demi Lovato, Benny Blanco and Ava Max.
It’s about a break up that Ades went through last year where she traveled to London during the pandemic to win back the old relationship, but this didn’t go to plan and she ended up being stuck in London during the lockdown.
Sounds like: Avril Lavigne, Maggie Rogers, Wolf Alice, Ava Max
Wil Owen – After Dark
Bristol-based Wil Owen shares ‘After Dark,’ a song he worked on with Tamu Massif (Fenne Lily).
As raw as it gets, the delicate plucks of acoustic guitar and breathy vocals conjure up a reflective and honest image of a crowd of people in a room, completely isolated from each other.
Sounds like: Bombay Bicycle Club, Bon Iver, Benjamin Francis Leftwich, Damien Jurado, Ben Howard, Fenne Lily
