In The Know: Isaac Gracie tips his fave up-and-comers
There are always more bands - the biggest question is who do you listen to when it comes to recommendations? Obviously Dork, your new music bible, should be your first port of call, but there are others too. This month Isaac Gracie, because who better to pick out some buzzy newcomers, than a buzzy newcomer?

Hullo Dork, here’s a few newish musical nuggets I’ve had rolling around my Spotify for the last week. First off, Snail Mail! I was first made aware of these guys from their 2016 'Habit' EP the song ‘Thinning’ is an absolute gem of indie guitars and suspense driven vocal drones. It’s perfect for bombing down the motorway trying to stay on the level.

Next up, Mitski, who’s 2017 album 'Puberty 2' became the soundtrack to a large portion of the making of my own album. Though not necessarily a new artist, Mitski is just beginning to receive the wider acclaim she deserves having just toured with Lorde and Run the Jewels. Her music is driven by her adept lyricism and diverse vocal that can both move you on songs like ‘Last Words of a Shooting Star’ and engage you empathically on songs like ‘Your Best American Girl’.

Finally, Moses Sumney, whose debut record 'Aromanticism' might have been my favourite of 2017. Channelling what felt like Radiohead, Frank Ocean and Aldous Harding, his vocal range and control is incomparable and his knack for writing a song that will make you sit and think is a joy to behold. Check out ‘Doomed’ and ‘Indulge Me’, both have made their way onto my preshow playlist...
