Jamies bea – new year beat
As an in-house engineer for one of London’s top underground studios, and a local favourite on dub DAB stations, J.B. has donned secret disguise and is bringing his unique blend of deep-electronica and indie-pop songwriting to the masses. New year beat is a downtempo r&b/indie-funk track in the style of Jai Paul, James Blake, How To Dress Well and Ben Khan, nice stuff.
We Walk Walls  – Ceremonies
Taken from We Walk Walls same titled debut album “Ceremonies”. The track is another perfect example of why this band got themselves on the shortlist for the Austrian Amadeus award this year. Catchy indie pop of the highest calibre.
PLOY – Friend Of A Friend
‘Friend Of A Friend’ is the latest single from a Washington DC duo, known as PLOY. That is about all we know about this band, apart from the fact that they make pop tunes which you will find very hard not to like. 
Gold Spectacles  – What We Might Have Been
We featured London-based band Gold Spectacles a while ago, and they have made it onto the list again with this happy-go-lucky piece of indie pop.
marsicans – Terrapin
We wanna make your head bop, make you dance until you can’t stop, all we do is play pop is what the band say about themselves. Terrapin, by the leeds-based band is the best song we’ve heard about a terrapin in a long time, and we have lost count of how many terrapin songs we have listened to in our time.
eversoandroid Leash
Seattle electro-rock duo Ever So Android  has released their new stand alone single “Leash“. True to form, the song features their signature electro-rock sound that combines deep bass synths with a driving rock beat and soaring vocals. Consisting of guitarist Drew Murray and power vocalist Hope Simpson, this two piece rock outfit has a sound that is both powerful and creative
Radio On – Don’t Wait
New band Radio On recently put our their first track “Don’t wait”. It sounds a little like 1975 mixed with Javelin/Neon Indian/ early MGMT, Put all that in a bowl and give it a ruddy mix and this is the outcome. A very pleasant little indie pop number for the upcoming summer months.
Wild Smiles  – Fool For You
The fast rising Winchester trio have just signed to Rob da Bank’s Sunday Best Recordings and in a separate publishing deal with Sunday Best / Domino Publishing Co that sees the two publishers come together in a joint venture for the first time, and Fool For You is the first fruit of their labours
