The Wombats – Turn 

Formed in Liverpool in 2003, the rock band’s albums have sold over 1 million copies worldwide. The Wombats continue their dramatic rise with new single 'Turn', taken from the new and previously reviewed album Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life.  

 Their new song is about treasuring those simple memories as they tend to be the best ones. With its mellow beat and blissful vocals, Turn is a feel-good song that helps you relax during those stressful moments. 

 

HANA2K – Pretty Enough 

Hana Evans, more commonly known as HANA2K, is a musician from Cardiff, Wales, who mainly composes songs in the pop genre. Her influences include artists such as Britney Spears, Rhianna, Selena Gomez and The Weekend. 

The self-produced 'Pretty Enough' boldly challenges social media and the way it makes a person think. The singer shows a great understanding of the many problems teenagers face by calling out the way social media can distort the way someone views themselves and needs the approval of others to be happy. This empowering song is sugar-sweet, carrying the message to be happy in yourself and not rely on the praise of others.  

 

The Ramona Flowers – Dramatist 

The Ramona Flowers are a band from Bristol, their music a blend of rock vibes and electronics, but not quite enough to be classed as an electro-rock band. However, previous singles have been noted to contain a slightly emo theme mixed in with electric instrumentals.  

Their latest single, 'Dramatist', is a song suitable for those midnight drives with its dark and brooding tone. Set to a synthetic pop theme inspired by classic 80’s tracks, this chilling song is great for meditating and unavoidably overthinking.  

  

 

MØ  Nostalgia 

Karen Marie Aagaard Ørsted Andersen, known professionally as is a Danish singer, songwriter and producer, mainly composing songs with an electronic and pop mix to them. She has been compared to other electropop artists such as Grimes and Twin Shadow. Her first entry to the charts came in 2014 from her collaboration with Australian rapper Iggy Azalea and their single, 'Beg for It'. The song peaked at number 27 on the US Billboard Hot 100.  

'Nostalgia' marks ’s first release since last year’s When I Was Young EPThe new track builds from an intense pounding beat, as MØ tells her reminiscent verses about her childhood memories. The chorus is giant and euphoric like many of her other tracks, making this another very honest song.
