YOTA – Drop The Bomb ft. MF Doom: A great debut single from this new group from Gorillaz and Klaxons members, Drop The Bomb has an unavoidable chorus and brilliant production, with great verses throughout from MF Doom. 90%

Moderate Rebels – Beyond Hidden Words: A progressive, well produced track from Moderate Rebels here, with the instrumental backing the repeated spoken vocal phrase slowly developing throughout. Sounds a bit like Baba O’Riley but in a good way. 70%

Pale Waves – Noises: Another great single from Pale Waves, with ‘Noises’ focusing on insecurities over a brilliantly produced synth-pop backing. Great lyrics too, with ‘Heather you’re stupid” really making me giggle. 90%
