Tom Joshua - Cinema

Tom Joshua's "Cinema" takes inspiration from the Showcase Cinemas complex in Stockton-on-Tees where Tom grew up. It's an exceptional debut single, showing much promise from the singer. Tom was recently added to the lineup for Stockton Calling in April, Deer Shed Festival in August and will also play his own debut London headline show with a night at The Slaughtered Lamb on 16th April. "Cinema" is out now on Apple Music and Spotify.

Grimes - Delete Forever (Official Video)

The world is falling apart, at least it is in Grimes' new video. The song is about, "losing friends to the opioid crisis and the self-hatred that arises when the grieving process mimics the behaviors that cost your friends their lives," said Grimes. It was written, produced, performed and engineered by Grimes like much of her music. "Delete Forever" is taken from Grimes' fifth studio album Miss Anthropocene which will be released February 21st on 4AD. "Delete Forever" is out now on Apple Music and Spotify.

John K & Sigala - if we never met

John K released his joyous track "if we never met" late last year and since then it's been streamed millions of times. Now Norwich producer and DJ Sigala has reworked the song giving it an even more upbeat and housey feel. Better than the original if you ask me. "if we never met" is out now on Apple Music and Spotify.

New York-based five piece Store Front have just released their debut EP, which is tilted Task. You can listen to it in full below.

Qveen Herby - Mint (Live Video)

Live versions of songs aren't always as good as the recorded versions. In the case of Qveen Herby's it's quite the opposite, her live rendition of "Mint" trounces the recorded version. The beat sounds rawer, her vocals have more life and it's great to see the rapper and singer use the sampler too. "Mint" is out now on Apple Music and Spotify.
