This breezy summer beauty comes from Norwich via Brightoners, Native Sons.

With mathy, twinkling guitar and skittering drums, Humanise has a cool atmospheric build-up making the track a little bit lovely and a hell of a debut to kick things off for the now London based band.

Comprised of two brothers and a mate, Native Sons have certainly got us wondering what else they’ve got up their sleeve. We hope they go far!

This track is so sumptuous! Keeper by the wonderful Furns is pure pop dipped in honey.

Yes it’s kinda funky, but hey, they do funk incredibly well, moving it away from the realms of 70’s porno and into something sassy and very current indeed.

The Copenhagen duo have got an album in the pipeline too so if that’s whet your whistle then keep checking out their FB page for more.

I’ve been enjoying this beatsy number by Gosh Pith for a few days now.

Combining crisp electronic beats with warm vocals, Waves gives the Detroit based duo a distinct sound that’s both soulful and beautifully minimal at the same time. Kinda like a broken hearted robot.

The pair having been earning praise for Waves all over the web and I concur- it’s a great track and I love it!

Like all the best bands in life, Kid Wave manage to sound familiar but like nothing else you can put your finger on. Today they premiered their new track, All I Want on Noisey and it’s pretty much exactly what you’d want to hear on a day like today.

Sundrenched, carefree and beachy it builds into a wonderful chorus with a vocal talent that defies their youthfulness. The band have been snapped up by Heavenly as a new signing and will be supporting Childhood on their forthcoming tour. I’d say that Heavenly is on to a winner with this one.

I reckon you’ll be hearing quite a lot of these brooding tones over the next few months. They unmistakably belong to the wonderful Laura Doggett who has recently supported Agnes Obel at Somerset House.

Her moody vocals are only made all the more lovely by glitchy, minimal synth and looped backing vocals creating a sparse yet luxurious affair with hints of darkness. It might not surprise you to hear that’s been produced by SOHN and is sounding very nice indeed!
