ROOM8 – Only You Feat. The Sound of Arrows
Production duo ROOM8 have just shared their new single, ‘Only You’, featuring The Sound of Arrows on vocals, and taken from ROOM8’s album ‘Transduction’, released in October.
The love song interprets the feeling of being uneasy with people out in the world. It’s sway-inducing, timeless synth-pop, worthy of a slot on Stranger Things.

UNSECRET – Joyride Feat. Butterfly Boucher
Who is UNSECRET you ask. Well, it turns out that no one really knows. It could be a producer, it could be a collective. We are not entirely sure, but one thing we do know is that UNSECRET’s new single with Australian singer, Butterfly Boucher is a summer corker!
Conjuring up an image of a ‘Joyride’ in new single of the very name, the retro beat is in a pop race with Boucher’s luscious vocals and anthemic lyricism.

Ali Horn – Dreamers
Ali Horn shares his psychedlic new track, ‘Dreamers’.
The ever so radio-friendly track echoes sounds from The Flaming Lips and Beck, in a kalaedscopic state, with a generous nod to the sound of the 60’s.
With a pulsating beat that builds through its verses into an uplifting chorus, it carries the listener through a lyrical journey much darker in content than the music would have you believe at first.
Sounds like: The Flaming Lips, Mercury Rev, Beck, Pavement
Amahla – Have Mercy
Starting with a beautifully addictive bassline, ‘Have Mercy’ by Amahla immediately draws you in, allowing you witness to Amahla’s authentic, modern soulful approach to songwriting.
The honest track – a conversatin between two people about social progress – ebbs and flows between solemn verses and stirring chorus hooks, and has a live performance feel.

Delena – One Night
Ukrainian-born, London-based singer-songwriter Delena has been declared as one of the most exciting names in pop by a number of key pop publications, so who are we to argue?
Her new single ‘One Night’ is another intense slice of the action with an 80’s style drive and female attitude.

A former pro cyclist, Harley discovered an incredible drive to create his own music following a cycling injury.
