Oozing with electro pop sensibilities, combined with dance based rhythms and spacey synths’ ‘Ex Best Friend’ is a catchy, upbeat number, sure to get you up and boogying.

“‘Ex Best Friend’ is about loss and missing someone that has gone away. I feel like everyone can grow distant from one-another and experiencing distance makes me self-reflective. I start questioning myself like; Why didn’t I reply? or How come I haven’t heard from you in a while?” – Lemonade Baby

Sliding over to the smooth, silky vibes of producer Daniel Allan now as he has announces his upcoming EP ‘Overstimulated’, alongside releasing new single ‘Say What You Want’ FT DEEGAN.

“Overstimulated is a project that comments on my personal journey and its overwhelming nature.

Sometimes I don’t really know how to communicate, so I suppose this project is my way of sharing that experience with the world.” Daniel Allan

AMAVA turns it up a notch with new indie- pop single ‘Third Degree’. Acting as a revival to an old project, AMAVA has breathed new life into this single which features the young talented artist revisit some of her folk roots. A brief break in her usual repertoire of electronic, dance-floor hits, ‘Third Degree’ is a welcomed and refreshing musical palette cleanser which continues to showcase her unwavering versatility and capabilities.

I wrote “Third Degree” at a time where I was holding on to a lot of bitterness over people who weren’t going to therapy for the reasons I was in therapy. I’ve worked on it and moved on but the line ‘send your location please and I’ll send you a bill for all this fucking therapy,’ is probably as direct as you can get.” – AMAVA

Rediisin is on our radar next with dreamy new single ‘There’s Somewhere Else’. Following on from the darker, brooding single “Pick Up The Phone // Escape”released earlier this year, this new track shows another side to the multi-talented, multi-instrumentalist. To compliment and showcase his versatility ‘There’s Somewhere Else’ is overflowing with charm and shoe-gaze atmospheres, resulting in an endlessly infectious and interesting new release from Rediisin.

“is a passion project that started very differently than how I normally write music. I normally start music with a beat and start to spit on top of it similar to how hip-hop artists write music. There’s Somewhere Else started as a musical piece, something composed rather than improvised.” – Rediisin

Finally and last but by no means least we have new single ‘Alone’ from indie rock, Norwegian singer-songwriter HM Johnsen. Having explored and experimented with a myriad of different genres in his journey so far, he’s tackled all things blues to rock, before moving to the realms of experimental indie rock. Now we see HM Johnsen veer off yet again with the delicate and vulnerable single ‘Alone’. With lashings of emotive piano chords and soft guitar, HM Johnsen lets his vocal truly shine through, building on the melancholia and atmosphere of such a beautiful ballad.

“I wrote the song Alone as a sort of therapy for myself at one moment last year. I was at a very low point and had no motivation, and no mood to feel happy or even laugh. I often feel that people encourage me to keep on with music and to keep on doing what I love, but at the same time, it sometimes can feel like there are no people that actually care about you as a person. I needed motivation, and someone to lift me up… So I wrote a song about this specific period of my life.” – HM Johnsen
