Best new songs this week: Ob Picks 26/1/24

Producer Bullion releases 'Rare' featuring Carly Rae Jepson

Skepta // Gas Me Up
Fresh off the back of announcing the lineup for July’s Big Smoke Festival, Skepta previews forthcoming album Knife & Fork with the enticing ‘Gas Me Up (Diligent)’, featuring Cardo’s slick production.

Bullion // Rare (feat. Carly Rae Jepson)
Songwriter/producer Nathan Jenkins reunites with Carly Rae Jepson to tease new album Affection. ‘Rare’ is an irresistibly crisp slice of 80s-inspired pop.

Fat White Family // Bullet of Dignity
Following the understated noir stylings of comeback single ‘Religion For One‘, the saints of South London’s sordid underbelly amalgamate Bowie’s Heroes and Young Americans eras into their own unsettling creation.

Wisp // See You Soon
Shoegaze is more popular than ever before, thanks in no small part to artists like Wisp, who are reinventing the genre. Delicate bedroom pop vocals combine with reverb-heavy guitar chords on ‘See You Soon’.

Chiedu Oraka // Rhythm of my Pain
Hull’s Chiedu Oraku is here to interrupt London’s monopoly of the Grime scene. Debut mixtape Misfit is out in April via mysterious new major label imprint, EMI North.

Blue Bendy // Come On Baby, Dig!
Another debut project to add to your calendar. Blue Bendy have finally announced their inaugural album So Medieval via State51 after a couple years of dazzling the capital with their beguiling brand of art rock.
