New Releases

It’s time for our monthly round up of all things getting us excited! Here are our top picks from November – December:

Flyte – Never Get To Heaven

London-trio Flyte are back with their fourth release this year; ‘Never Get to Heaven’. The beautifully wintry track has the band stripped back to just vocals and guitar, forming the perfect single for December. The song was written by vocalist Will when he was 14 as a rework of a scout’s chant, with Will releasing it had now become the ‘perfect eulogy to the end of my adult relationship’.

DECO – Christmas is Calling

It wouldn’t be a December round-up without a Christmas song and DECO have more than delivered with this modern classic. Following up from their debut EP ‘Real Life’ released earlier this year, the pop-trio have graced with an upbeat Christmas anthem, accompanied with nostalgic home-video style video.

Kings & Bears – When The Day

Firm favourites of Beyond the Woods, Kings & Bears have released an up-beat ‘rock and roll party song’ alongside an equally upbeat ‘rock and roll party video’, and we love it. The track has been featured on Hannah Fletcher’s BBC Introducing Show as ‘Track of the Week’ and it is totally deserving of that title!  

Patawawa – Disco Video

Patawawa are also back with a new release this month, bringing us infectious and fun disco track ‘Disco Video’. Focusing on female empowerment, the single is part of their new album release ‘Power Up’ which is due out on the 5th March 2012. You can pre-order the album and grab some funky merch here.

Thomas Day – Wine

Hailing from our very own Licolnshire, Thomas Day has been making waves in modern hip-hop and neo-soul. His latest release ‘Wine’, featuring London-based rapper Tee Peters, explores the emotions behing feeling not good enough, but sends the uplifting message that you are not alone. Check-out the single below!

Hell’s Ditch – The Likes Of Us

Lincolnshire rockers ‘Hell’s Ditch’ have certainly been making their mark on the industry, previously being played on Radio 1 by Daniel P Carter and achieving Radio Lincolnshire plays for their latest single ‘The Likes of Us’. Their latest single is their third to date and it definitely packs a punch, articulating a heavy political message in true punk-rock fashion.

Save The Date – We’re Back Next August!

Summer’s slowly drawing to a close and normally we’d be kicking out feet up having had a great festival season. But 2020 has had its way with us and we’ve been feeling a bit glum without our fix of live music and good times in the great outdoors. So good job we’ve got the date for next year in the bag!
