Rivet City are a light-hearted band hailing from the Manchester area, who like to distance themselves from being pigeon-holed into any solid definitions.
Frontman Jake Breeze explained “Circles started as a joke. I bet a good friend that I’d be able to fit the line ‘linear motion’ into a song and get a room of people to sing it. Fast forward six years and we’ve actually been able to achieve that! However that doesn’t mean the song as a whole is a joke.
The lyrics work as both an insight into how I believe the world can be experienced through a surrealist lens; as well as documenting a particular idea I had regarding what the apocalypse may look like. The song’s really about potential, and the potential for a creative mind to sculpt the world into any image that it sees fit; and as a result your physical location doesn’t have to define your reality”.

London based Lecaudé (pronounced ‘Le-co-day’) continues to create lyrically-driven electronic soul music with catchy pop melodies.
The evocative ‘Powder Blue’ (taken from his ‘Circles’ EP, co-produced and mixed by Fred Prest), is, according to Lecaudé, “a multi-sensory raising of sex to the pedestal of art. I wanted it to be the sonic version of making your own DIY Yves Klein painting at home.”

Vök is Margrét Rán (vocals, guitar, keyboards), Andri Enoksson (saxophone, synths) and Ólafur Alexander (guitar, bass). Named after the Icelandic word for ‘hole in the ice’, the trio hail from Hafnarfjörður, a town famous for allegedly being home to a large, hidden elvish settlement.
‘Waterfall’ is a bass-heavy, dreamy and melodic track with descriptive vocals.
Put in your headphones and turn the volume up high.
