Confidence Man // Firebreak
Confidence Man share ‘Firebreak’ after building a reputation as one of the must-see names on any festival lineup and releasing the unstoppable ‘On & On (Again)‘ with Daniel Avery. Adorned with cover art which evokes a 00s dance compilation album, ‘Firebreak’ is the sound of Friday night.


Lord Apex // The Good Fight (prod. by Madlib)
West London’s Lord Apex has shared new album, The Good Fight, today, alongside this gem of a title track. Freddie GibbsEyedress and Greentea Peng all lend their talents to a stellar collection.


Fabiana Palladino with Jai Paul // I Care
Fabiana Palladino has announced her long-awaited debut album with this dreamy duet alongside the enigmatic Jai Paul. ‘I Care’ is a modern take on the timeless male/female pop duet.


youbet // Carsick
Recent Hardly Art signees youbet fuse touches of folk songwriting with dreamy shoegaze and an understated groove to truly whet our appetites for what’s to come.


Rory Sweeney // Loose Lips (feat. Ahmed, With Love., EMBY & Curtisy)
Producer Rory Sweeney enlists a dream team of collaborators from Dublin’s burgeoning alternative hip-hop scene to make for a track that hits with an instant sense of timelessness.


Skydaddy // His Masterpiece
Rachid Fakhre has announced February’s arrival of debut EP Pilot with the charming ‘His Masterpiece’. Imagine Randy Newman’s finest work percolated through a drug-fuelled dream state and you’re halfway there.
