and style visionary
RIP Virgil

Mura Masa // 2gether
Mura Masa continues his streak of lo-fi greatness, following in the footsteps of his 2020 masterpiece R.Y.C. London-based Gretel Hänlyn joins Alex Crossan on vocals for ‘2gether’.

Yard Act // Payday
With debut album The Overload arriving in January, Yard Act are fast becoming the voice of the moment in switched-on post-punk. “What constitutes a ghetto??” James Smith ponders, as he kicks open the door to ‘Payday’.

Daine // IDC
Melbourne emo-pop riser Daine has picked up props from every corner of the industry, counting Charli XCX and Bring Me The Horizon’s Oli Sykes among her fans. ‘IDC’ is irresistibly melodic, whilst packing a bite that is badass as fuck.

Sam Akpro // Juno
One of South London’s best kept secrets for a little while now, Sam Akpro has released his debut EP, Drift, this week. Pooling influences from Sam’s upbringing in the musical melting pot of Peckham, the 4-track effort pays homage to punk, darkwave and electronica.

Avsha The Awesome // Boogieman
Repping one half of the band Lowertown, Avsha The Awesome has shared ‘Boogieman’ – his first solo offering through Dirty Hit. Avsha perfectly captures the underdog, ramshackle energy of DIY.

Fake Turins // Afterwards
One of the most enjoyable gigs you’ll ever attend. 11-piece London collective Fake Turins combine disco, punk and a little indie-pop flare to make ‘Afterwards’ a tune that you’ll want to play a little louder upon every visit.
