And don’t for­get to check out our UK Fresh List on Spo­ti­fy, updat­ed week­ly with new music by fledg­ing artists we can’t get enough of, and return­ing stars.

‘Baby Lee’ by Lyla Foy
There’s an earthy melan­choly to Lyla Foy’s music – think Lau­ra Mar­ling or Angel Oslen, but more folk. This Lon­don-based singer-song­writer released her warm­ly received album Mir­rors in the Sky in 2014. Recent­ly she released this serene cov­er of ‘Baby Lee’ by Teenage Fan­club, which is out now.

‘Hypocrisy’ by Skepta
Win­ner of the 2016 Mer­cury Prize and one of the god­fa­thers of grime, Skep­ta, dropped a new tune this week, all about the cats who smile in your face, then give you the side eye behind your back.

‘You + Me (feat. Lisa Jên Brown)’ by Pub­lic Ser­vice Broadcasting
The minds behind Pub­lic Ser­vice Broad­cast­ing released their third album on Fri­day, titled Every Val­ley. ‘You + Me’ is a sub­lime tune for your after­noon come­down after a long summer’s day.

‘Alli­son’ by Soc­cer Mommy
The dreamy, loop­ing chants on ‘Alli­son’ by Soc­cer Mom­my caught our atten­tion this week. The song fea­tures on her upcom­ing mini-album, Col­lec­tion, out August 4 on Fat Pos­sum Records.

‘Glass Eye’ by For­ev­er Cult
Gen­tly gut­tur­al. That’s how’s ‘Glass Eye’ by Leeds rock group For­ev­er Cult sounds. It’s rough-edged and rau­cous with the punchy, lo-fi sen­sa­tion akin to ear­ly Bloc Par­ty. This track is tak­en from the group’s Home­wreak­er EP, which is out now on Clue Records.
