Hinds // Coffee
Returning with their first single in four years – and their first in a decade as original duo Carlotta Cosials and Ana Perrote – ‘Coffee’ garnishes the earworm melodies of indie pop with the rough edges of garage rock: how we’ve missed Hinds.

Ho99o9 // A MACHINE OF
LA duo Ho99o9 are hurtling towards the release of an ‘incoming’ third album, with this tantalising dose of sonic carnage. The accompanying visualiser to ‘A MACHINE OF’ offers a small taste of how electrifying Ho99o9’s live shows are.

Nabihah Iqbal // Zone 1 to 6000 (Frank Wiedemann Remix)
The bonus track from Iqbal’s new remix package, in which tracks from her Dreamer album see stellar reworkings from Haider Uppal, Slowspin and Sijya.

Chiedu Oraka // Counselling
Chiedu is slowly but surely leaving his fingerprints all over UK rap, and the scene is already better for it. ‘Counselling’ sees honest lyricism channelled through an undeniable presence of personality.

Been Stellar // Passing Judgement
Been Stellar have had a week to remember, having announced their deal with Dirty Hit and shared the details of debut album Scream From New York, NY alongside the captivating ‘Passing Judgement’.

Body Meat // Focus
Songwriter/producer Chris Taylor means business with his first new music of 2024. Euphoric synths and frantic percussion collude to make for a mesmerising picture of chaos in ‘Focus’.
