1. Priya Ragu - 'Black Goose'

Rising Tamil-Swiss talent Priya Ragu is quickly becoming one of music's most exciting stars - and her latest offering is nothing short of sensational. Written in the wake of the murder of George Floyd and the Black Lives Matter protests of 2020, 'Black Goose' is ablaze with anger, solidarity and clattering rhythms. It's lifted from her highly anticipated forthcoming album 'SANTHOSAM' which is set to cause the biggest waves in her career so far. 

2. IDLES feat. LCD Soundsystem - 'Dancer'

Idles have brought some serious star power to their latest single 'Dancer', enlisting James Murphy and Nancy Whang of LCD Soundsystem. The band previewed the new track during a secret show at London’s Village Underground on Oct. 17 under the name Tangk - showcasing the deeply tense but liberating sound of their upcoming record. Whether you're a fan of IDLES or LCD Soundsystem, this track is certainly one to get stuck into. 

3. Jespfur - 'Nil'

Jesper Vervoort aka Jespfur, a polymath hailing from Amsterdam, has just unleashed 'nil'. The tantalising lo-fi-turn-post-punk offering is the first single lifted from his upcoming album, slated for release in January 2024. Awash with hazy ambience and an effortlessly cool aura, this is one rising artist who is due to blow very soon.
