The Lemon Twigs // Corner Of My Eye

JW Francis // Going Home To A Party 
Forever neck-deep in good vibes, ‘Going Home To A Party’ is the next chapter in JW Francis’ Dream House odyssey. Full album will arrive 27th Jan, alongside a string of in-store performances.

Low Girl // Bored
Low Girl’s new EP, Uh-Oh, is out today, and sees vocalist Sarah Cosgrove exercising catharsis with an endearing coolness. “This is for everyone who feels like they were too polite in a situation where they should have been furious,” Cosgrove says of the release – check out the Uh-Oh EP now

Damefrisør // D.O.D
