Tirzah – Sink In

London-based singer-songwriter Tirzah is back with this track and Send Me, giving us deep in our feelings vibes. I love everything she releases and this video is so beautifully put together.

Goya Gumbani – Change So Fast

Born in Brookyln and currently living in London, Goya Gumbani has combined neo-soul, jazz and rap to create Change So Fast. It’s perfect for a chilled day in the sunny weather we’re (finally) having.

Pinty – Red Lorry (I’m Sorry)

Peckham artist Pinty has just dropped his EP Tomorrow’s Where I’m At and this is one of the track’s from it. He takes inspiration from The Streets and King Krule and is giving jazzy house tune vibes with a troubled love song in the lyrics.

Joviale – Glass Peach

North Londoner Joviale sounds ethereal and sensual in Glass Peach. It’s fresh off their new EP Hurricane Belle and doesn’t disappoint.

Biig Piig – American Beauty

Biig Piig, originally born in Spain and now London-based, is the co-founder of West London NiNE8 Collective alongside the likes of Lava La Rue and more. She’s just released an EP titled The Sky Is Bleeding and this is my favourite track from it.
