Pale Seas

Bucolic, hazy folk from Southampton via London. Pale Seas channel classic melodies through a pastoral prism to marvellous effect.

Pale Seas- Something or Nothing Single by Pale Seas

Scarlet Chives

The album has been out for a year in Denmark apparently so we are playing catch up, but its a delight to finally discover their unique take on Dreampop.

Marching music from Oslo's Maribel. Not unlike The Duke Spirit's best moments.

Jezebel Jive by MARIBEL

Misfit Mod

A choice slice of minimal drowsy dream pop from Oxford's Misfit Mod here. Effortless in the best possible sense.

Fun Adults

Clip clopping beats, hypnagogic vocal delivery and possessing a soulful depth, Leeds' Fun Adults are both an exciting and unique proposition judging by this track.

Story Books

Kent's Story Books have a knack with an elegiac melody and lyric, earlier demo Peregrine was a stonker but 'Damage' aint bad either.

Warped electronic pop of the highest calibre from Brooklyn's clandestine Crux. The entirety of their XTC EP is vintage stuff.
