Notes On… Queen of Jeans

Last December at a New Year’s Eve party, the individuals between Queen of Jeans made a pact. And don’t worry, to our knowledge this pact didn’t involve anything as schmaltzy as the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants or involve satanism. We think.

Notes On… Hydrogen Sea

Hydrogen Sea hail from Belgium, but there’s something rather reminiscent of Nordic nights in their slick glacial pop.

Notes On… ‘Clean’ By The Japanese House

In March, a mysterious figure called The Japanese House released their first-ever track, ‘Still.’ It was a minimal, moody piece of work from a person who clearly loved using vocoders and enjoyed experimenting with auto-tune (in a good way).

Beth was found and the rest, as they say, is history. Their debut single ‘Disasters Running Wild’ is out early this month and…

Notes On… Rebecca Clements

it’s a track burdened with emotion, weighed down by years of hurt way beyond Clements’ years. It’s stark, bold and, above all, captivatingly sincere. Like a big, glorious breath of fresh air.

Notes On… VYNCE

Sweet melodies and staccato riffs, with hints at a darker side from Merseyside four piece VYNCE.
