In The Know: Spring King pick their 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 we ask three-quarters of recent Dork cover stars, Spring King.

TAREK - There’s a guy called Benjamin Belinska from Glasgow who I’m listening to a lot. He only has one track online (over on SoundCloud) but I managed to get a couple more songs from him directly and what I’ve heard so far is really well arranged and performed. I can’t wait for him to release more stuff. The Honey Hahs are another band I’m intrigued by, three sisters aged 10,12 and 15, recently signed to Rough Trade. Their biggest tune to date is ‘Stop Him’, but their new album 'Dear Someone, Happy Something' is a great listen!

JAMES - For me, the best new stuff going is all being released by a girl called Noname. She released a record called 'Room 25' recently and it’s just so amazingly complex, she’s an incredible rapper and the music behind her is second to none. Seriously, seriously recommend. The new Mac Miller record is also excellent (R.I.P), and I cannot stress how good the new season of Bojack Horseman is. Go and watch. Like, right now.

PETE - Ed The Dog released his debut album ‘Shame’ a couple of months ago. It’s all self-recorded at home and has great energy and a sense of humour about it. We decided to take him and his band out on tour with us, and his show has been great. He also looks like Harry Potter which can only be a good thing.
