THE 5 NEW ARTISTS THAT MAKE THIS WEEK’S PLAYLIST

ZIPTEN

Zipten hits us with his new track (You Are) Encanto, a beautifully ambient track which is perfect for mindfulness and relaxing during stressful times. Incredibly appropriate for the current situation the world, the new music video for the track which came out last week, features someone using virtual reality to explore the paradise the world has to offer. Zipten’s new song and video is just what we need right now. Watch the video below.

KYRA JINX

Kyra Jinx has just dropped new track 1 of 1 which you can listen to below. While we wait for this to be available on all streaming sites like Spotify, we added her song ‘Side Ho’ for you to check out! Kyra has attracted the support of BBC Introducing, who had this to say:

”I have to say, I think this might be one of the best examples of this style of music we’ve ever had. You know when you go into the uploaders to listen to music and something, just like, hits you in the face. This is absolutely amazing!”BBC INTRODUCING (Lincolnshire)

CHARMIAN DEVI

Charmian Devi has joined forces with rock royalty for her most recent releases. ‘Radio of None’ features guitarist Lenny Kaye (Patti Smith Group); Tony Garnier (Bob Dylan’s bass player since 1989; Tom Waits; Paul Simon) and Sonic Youth drummer, Steve Shelley. You can also watch the lyric video for ‘Radio of None’ here:

VCAGE

VCAGE’s new release ‘Slam Me’ is more important now than ever. Aside from it being a great track, showing off VCAGE’s excellent musicianship, the themes of this song should not be overlooked. While millions of people across the globe are currently in lockdown, there have been major increases in cases of domestic abuse. Having been a victim himself, VCAGE’s song ‘Slam Me’ explores his experience of being an abuse victim. Raising awareness on this issue is extremely important right now, as we must not forget that men can also be victims of domestic abuse, but are far less likely to report it. You can watch the music video below.

JACK BRITTEN

We think that Jack Britten’s new song ‘Running Round My Head’ has chart-topping potential. Jack Britten is a music producer who effortlessly covers electro, indie and pop but still has more surprises up his sleeve – Running Round My Head is your entry point into an artist who is here to stay.
