CAPPA – Next Ex

This weekend sees the release of Cappa‘s next extremely catchy number. ‘Next Ex’ is hooky indie pop in all its glory – super fun and addictive. Well worth a listen on to brighten up this gloomy Monday.


Saya – Wet Dreams

Listen to the debut track ‘Wet Dreams’ from the 19 year old, Toronto hailing, singer songwriter Saya. Our current situation: this track blaring full volume whilst munching on a Calippo – perfect combo for this promising sunshine!

Well worth a listen if not a little dance around:

Premiere: SHAW – Sharp Man

Originally from Bristol but now based in Liverpool, 24 year old Geoff Shaw re-announces himself with new track ‘Sharp Man’.

The undoubtedly impressive vocal skills of the songwriter have begun to win him many plaudits and comparisons with the likes of James Bay, Father John Misty and Ben Howard.

‘Sharp Man’ is a gritty announcement of his new sound and comes ahead of a string of live dates throughout the summer.
18th July  The Social, Soho
26th July  Nozstock Festival
29th July  Ten Feet Tall, Cardiff
30th July  Mr. Wolfs, Bristol
Take a listen to ‘Sharp Man’ below and enjoy:

Hinterland Spotlight: Club Paradise

Today we introduce Club Paradise, aka Mark Torres. He’s a Spanish/Australian singer songwriter come producer based in London currently working on an EP that is going to be nothing short of exciting!

Tracks such as Salvation have elements of Whilk and Misky to them whilst his song ‘Strays’ is much more chilled. Check it out below and absorb the beautifully relaxing melody, lulling military drums rolls and electronic twirls. Nice work!

Clean Cut Kid – Vitamin C

Clean Cut Kid is a name that has been frequently whispered on the rumour mill for months now and lo and behold their debut track ‘Vitamin C’ is FINALLY here!

Its different and empowering to say the least with rolling positive choruses and repetitive guitar picks. Having just signed to Universal publishing and Polydor these kids from Liverpool are definitely ones to watch!

Theo Altieri and Only Girl with Blackjack Lnd

Blackjack London events never cease to please. fact.

Back in April I returned to The Social to see Theo Altieri and Only Girl. Altieri’s tunes were confident and catchy in a nostalgic, schoolboy, ‘early Kooks’, indie kinda way however the star of the evening was definitely Only Girl. Her humble, honest and natural aura flowed effortlessly throughout the set and the audience bared witness to her beautifully innocent song dedication to her other half: ‘Only Boy’.

Only Girl ‘Bittersweet’ is on repeat on my Summer playlist and it will undoubtedly be snapped up into the next inevitable Eton Messy/Kygo/Schulz summer house rework.

Until then, Only Girl is confirmed to play at this year’s Glastonbury Festival, I highly recommend you go and check her out!
