Autumn – Mwahaha

Synthy electronic rock that wouldn’t look out of place in the 80s charts. The group bring a gloomier influence to the sparkle and glam of the 80s. FFO: David Bowie, Tears For Fears, Goldfrapp, Joy Division

Roxy – sleepyhead

Sugar-sweet indie pop with a sparkling summer energy and a rosy melody – songs to soothe your mind. (There’s even a neat little guitar riff too!) FFO: Boy Pablo, FINNEAS, Peach Pit

She – Meyru

Soothing guitar riffs and mellow vocals intertwine together to create a tranquil pop song, before the temperature rises and the beat picks up, transforming into a rocking psychedelic fantasy. FFO: Mild High Club, Temporex, Peach Pit

My Only – ARCHE

Verging on psychedelia, the dreamy shoegaze pop from ARCHE emits a cool, dusky atmosphere, generated by a subtle melody and hazy vocals. A song for the night owls. FFO: Swimming Tapes, The Japanese House, Summer Salt

Hawai Chill – Kicktracks

Low-fi funky instrumental over-layed with refined vocal elements – Kicktracks crafts layer upon layer of fine-tuned beats and melodies. FFO: Temporex, Vansire, Banes World

Get Me Started – FREEMAN

Raw vocals and tangy guitar feed into a refreshingly classic sound, developing a vintage nostalgia evocative of the 70s. London-based artist FREEMAN is set to release his sophomore album in September. FFO: Tom Petty, The Doobie Brothers

Teddy – Easter Island Statues

Thrashing drums, turbulent riffs, and an unstoppable energy, ‘Teddy’ gravitates between calmer verses and thumping choruses, before erupting into a final burst of power. FFO: VANT, Foals

Little Girl – Ghost Town Cinema

Honest lyrics and husky vocals are paired with a muted melody and accompanied by a heartwarming video, which intertwines both song and story. FFO: Kodaline, Vance Joy

I Follow – Charlie Strange

Creating a fairy-tale-esque atmosphere through soft, ethereal vocals, and a calming melody, ‘I Follow’ has a quietly beautiful lullaby feel. FFO: Beach House, Jorja Smith

Hey Wavy Baby – Only Rainyday Rainbow

Muffled vocals and a light melody transcend into darkness, lowering into gnarly riffs and a rowdy melody, before fading away into an almost creepy sounding vocal distortion. FFO: King Gizzard, Mac Demarco, The Garden


Racing surf rock, brimming with intensity and roaring riffs, before catapulting into a groovy guitar frenzy. FFO: The Garden, Bad//Dreems

Egg Shells – Ka Pala

Sweet pop with an effortlessly slick saxophone breakdown – a well crafted summery sound. FFO: Rex Orange County, The Marias

Window – Perfect Posture

Chilled out low-fi pop for cozy days. Simple but addictive – the track emits warmth, and a sense of optimism. FFO: Rex Orange County, Temporex, Cuco
