1: Kelela took the day by storm with The High
I remember listening to a pretty good mixtape last year that brought me to Kelela’s profile but, if I’m honest, I had completely forgotten about that until now. A very mellow but outstanding song, and an amazing voice.The High

2: St. Vincent releases another track from her upcoming album
In ongoing hype building, of which I’m not going to complain, here’s another track from St. Vincent’s eponymous album (I love using that word), due out on the 25th Feb. She’s also playing Shepherd’s Bush Empire on the 20th! I’ve not got tickets, but having caught the last tour and her show with David Byrne, I’m confident it’ll be amazing.
3: Bleeding Rainbow bring us back to earth with Images.
With an album also out 25th Feb, Bleeding Rainbow drag us back to hard hitting reality with this great song. I’ll keep this as short but not nearly as impactful as the song itself.Images

4: Years & Years have released this video for “Real”.
A great video albeit more surreal than the name might suggest, Years & Years have been able to recruit some recognisable faces to act out a dreamesque dance-off.

5: Phantogram is practically inviting collaboration with this subtle name drop.
Well, when you name a song after Bill Murray, what do you expect to happen?
