Dan Croll

By no means a new face on the scene. But we thought his long awaited return warranted a mention this week. Famed for his blend of bright guitars and tribal inspired beats. Songs filled with intricate layers and floaty textures. He returns the same Dan Croll we all know and love. Heading out on a nationwide tour in May and with rumours of more new material, is an album on the way? We certainly hope so.

Listen to the new single below.

Get Inuit

Kentish boys Get Inuit make “dirty pop”, as they freely admit in their Facebook bio. Their lively indie tracks command attention. Having been supported by Annie Mac on Radio 1, they have teased the album release with tracks ’Teriyaki’ and new belter, ‘Barbiturates’. Now about to head out on tour ahead of their debut album, make sure you go and catch them live.

Stream the brand new single, ‘Barbiturates’ on Soundcloud below.

If low-slung sultry indie is your thing, then you definitely need to get your ears around this up and coming Aussie. Chorus-laden guitars reminiscent of Mac DeMarco and blissful vocal stabs making for a dreamy sound which sounds so beautifully effortless. Unfortunately there is no talk about him making the trip over here just yet, but patience is a virtue right?

Declan McKenna

Indie wonder-kid Declan McKenna has had a lot of hype behind him already after releasing his breakout track ‘Brazil’ way back in 2014. Having had support from BBC Introducing and most recently being ranked third in NME’s ‘Essential New Music For 2017’ list. Declan’s new single is a brilliantly catchy and anthemic track. For a young man, his clever and often politically charged song-writing is a breath of fresh air. It feels like 2017 is going to be his year.

Dutch psych rock quartet, Indian Askin released their debut LP in 2016 and have already hit 2017 hard with two singles released this year already. With lo-fi vocals, 70s’ guitars and a distinctively punk attitude. These rambunctious lot will have you sucked in to their crazy world in no time.

Stream new single ‘Drinkin Time’ below.
