‘Get What’s Mine For You’ – Jack Swing : Title track of the Pittsburgh band’s third EP, ‘Get What’s Mine For You’, sees Jack Swing at their funkiest, packing anthemic choruses into convoluted instrumentals, and bringing immense power into soul-filled groove. FFO: Franz Ferdinand

‘Hairy Situation’ – Elle E : Taking on a rockier feel in comparison to her more recent releases, ‘Hairy Situation’ buzzes with vibrancy, racing between reverb-packed choruses and bold guitar riffs; with Elle E describing it as “raw, DIY goodness to get you through those shitty hair days”.
