Setting in motion this month’s collection of new releases, we’ve handpicked the best new music on our radar, for your entertainment. We’ve curated this week’s line-up of the finest tracks, from Raye to Cap1talA.
Jasmine Jethwa – Money To Burn
In a folk inspired, country take on R&B, Jasmine’s soft vibrato is accompanied by violin in an emotional spill of heartbreak.
Cap1talA – Paranoia
Bringing soul rap back to the UK in his new EP , Cap1talA delivers a jazz inspired, nostalgia-esque flavour in his track, ‘Paranoia’.
Raye – My 21st Century Blues
Showcasing structural influence from the ‘Renaissance’ album and the dramatic value of ‘Chicago’, her tasteful use of language to tell her stories is on brand for South London’s own musical genius.
Keeping the lyrical portion repetitive and to a minimum, this hypnotic warping Amapiano-style track, embellished with Meron T’s stretchy, wispy vocals will have you swaying from the go.
Olivia Dean – UFO
Leading with a guitar and vocoder touch-ups, Olivia tells a short tale of shy love, exploring the uncertainty of what happens when you let go, to fall in love.
Ashbeck – Vexed@me
Ashbeck comes in smooth with ‘Vexed@me’, a lofi-retro, drill hybrid track carrying mellow Frank Ocean inspired undertones.
Rachel Chinouriri – Maybe I’m Lonely
Accompanied by a choir and a simple acoustic guitar chord progression, Rachel tells the story of falling in love, hoping she is not alone.
On the anticipated remix of the Jersey club-style dance track, PinkPantharess teams up with Brooklyn’s Drill princess to extend her frustration of toxic men.
