School of X (aka Rasmus Littauer) shares the visuals for new single, ‘Forgot Me on the Moon’.
What starts off as a sombre beginning, soon turns into an uplifting slice of pop.
Ten years ago, a much younger Littauer first wrote the chorus to an unfinished song out of anger, unable to take the initiative of moving on from a fading love. However, the song now shows a newfound sense of resolve in the face of heartbreak and confusion.
His debut album ‘Armlock’ is out next week.

Following the success of their debut album release – sibling trio Saint Nomad has returned with ‘Nothing to Lose’.
The US-based ‘Band of Brothers’ describes their music as “a celebration of living life in light of the fact that nothing lasts forever” and that’s exactly the vibe that comes out of this latest record.
Lyrically, the record discusses the idea of setting a plan in motion and finding a purpose to one’s existence, whilst sonically, the track builds beautifully, beginning with subtle soft layers of vocals and a gorgeous guitar tone, slowly bringing in other instruments in the intro faux chorus.
As we continue on the 2:44 journey with ‘Nothing to Lose,’ we are treated to new elements with each section, adding complex layers of guitar, new backing vocals all culminating with a Mew like girthy rock guitar filling out the final anthemic chorus.
Having been on the road for the majority of their musical lives, you can expect to see a great show from Saint Nomad when the global pandemic comes to its end.
Sounds like: Mew, Nick Mulvey, Handsome Ghost, flor, Lo Moon, Low Island
Following the extremely well-received release with Lord Silva, School of X releases ‘Bad Love’.
Inspired by Eks-skolen – an anti-establishment art collective that was based in Copenhagen in the 1960s – the emo-tinged song by School of X’s Rasmus Littauer (MØ, Liss, Clairo) is about the loss of trust or faith.
Born from a remote connection via Instagram and a mutual love of big cats, London-based Welsh/Finnish electro-pop duo Rochelle and Vee are Tigerpunsh.
Brand new onto the scene, their single ‘Shade’ holds a bursting energy throughout, with delicate Eastern synths and experimental pop elements. A great start to what could be a very exciting future for the girls!
Sounds like: Broods, EXES, MS MR, Vera Blue, RAINDEAR, Nova Club, Georgia
Having entered the music scene from the early age of 17, this rising star has already received national recognition within the UK.
In his signature soul-infused, pop sound, HUDSUN’s latest offering ‘Shutdown’ speaks of the frustration in attempting to break someone out of an emotional prison they have created for themselves wrapped up.
