Right, then. How’s everybody holding up?
We’ve got plenty of stuff to get you through the Bank Holiday weekend, so let’s dive right in, shall we? Lovely. This week our Jukebox is full of brand new tracks, with releases from Pixx, The Orielles, Bleachers, Alt- J, Dagny, and Bad Sounds dropping over the past seven days. Not to mention Marika Hackman is in our playlist again this week, with yet another banger. Not that we’re complaining, mind. We’ll take as many Marika tunes as we can get, ta very much.
We also had videos from Lana Del Rey, Dua Lipa, Maximo Park, Real Estate, Kamikaze Girls and Mø, as well as the first look at the new clip for ‘Ferris Wheel’ from Brighton newbies Thyla. Meanwhile The Gospel Youth announced details of their debut album, The Kills covered Rihanna, and both Lorde and Pumarosa appeared on the first ever all-female-led edition of Later...With Jools Holland. It’s a brave new world, eh? They got there in the end.
On top off all that, Tigers Jaw announced a tour, The Amazons are playing Barn on the Farm, and Glastonbury announced their West Holts line-up featuring Solange, Justice, and Dizzee Rascal. Festival season is truly upon us.
Check all that out in this week’s playlist.
Give all this a try
The Murder Capital are a band that arrived with expectation. Before their first track dropped, word of mouth had already begun to spread about five men from Dublin kicking up a fuss.
Sam Fender is a man on a mission. Already beating current ‘biggest noise on the block’ Lewis Capaldi to a Brit Award, as his debut album nears its much-anticipated arrival, the sky really is the limit for an artist not short of stuff to say.
It’s over eight years since Friendly Fires released their last album, but - after a prolonged period away - they’re finally
back on the dancefloor with the shimmering ‘Inflorescent’.
His new album isn't too far off, either.
