The contest will invite bands and singers to generate support for their entries on social media, with the six finalists playing a live-streamed show on 7 September at London’s world-famous 100 Club.

From today, UK-based singers or bands can submit their entries of original material via Living Indie’s portal here. The artists will then have two weeks to build up the most votes using the hashtags #Living[plus band name] and #LivingIndie. The voting for the ultimate winner will take place entirely online, using footage from the final.
The final will be streamed live on Indietronica.org from one of London’s most iconic live music venues, the finalists will gain invaluable exposure along with a free, high-definition recording of them playing live. The winners will be playing in front of music-industry figures from across Europe, amid some of Spain’s most picturesque coastal surroundings.

Time for some more summery and tropical tunes! This time from Crystal Fighters.

As with all Crystal Fighers’ tracks, it’s a shame it has to end.
‘Love Alight’ is released on 4 August via Zirkulo/PIAS and can be ordered on iTunes here.
