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.
