Charli XCX // Sympathy is a knife
Charli XCX has finally shared a BRAT, her sixth album featuring the likes of Robyn, Addison Rae and Skream & Benga. Later this month, Glastonbury will see Charli delivering her PARTYGIRL DJ set to the Levels Stage in what is sure to be one of the weekend’s highlights.

Goat Girl // words fell out
Elsewhere on the shelves, you’ll find Goat Girl’s stellar new LP Below The Waste – released via Rough Trade. An intimate departure from the distortion of ‘ride around‘ and ‘motorway‘s light electronica, ‘words fell out’ features choreography from singer Lottie’s mother, Lauren Potter.

Fat Dog // I am the King
Fresh off the back of their appearance on Later… with Jools Holland, Domino’s Fat Dog have dropped the high-octane euphoria of ‘I am the King’.

bar italia // the only conscious being in the universe
Indie’s most prolific trio are back at it with the release of 3-track EP The Tw*ts. Hot on the heels of sharing two fulls albums in the last year, The Tw*ts also features a reappearance from ‘sounds like you had to be there‘: a poignant cut from bar italia’s 2023 album The Twits.

Shanae // Outside
Tessellating melodic R&B vocals around electronic beats, Australia’s Shanae is serving up an enticing slice of summer on ‘Outside’.

Aron Dahl // Ficken -3000
Composer/filmmaker Aron Dahl has shared the most charming track of the year, with ‘Ficken -3000’. If you like this then you’re in luck: Aron has a whole bank of previous releases ready for you to dive into.
