#UMANewMusicPlaylist 5 – Running Down Our Pick Of The Week’s New Music

We’re blessed with so much great new music to pick from right now but here’s a few highlights from the world of emerging and independent artists this week..

Tiana Major9 – Merry Go

Since making the finals of the MOBO Unsung competition in 2014, Tiana Major9 has been building the foundations of a successful music career. After supporting Ray BLK and Ella Eyre on tour and frequently performing at Sofar Sounds London, the emerging singer from East London has finally unleashed her debut single ‘Merry Go’. Jazzy and bluesy vibes combined with Major9’s strong vocals turn this one without a doubt into a feel-good anthem. Follow @tianamajor9

Jevon – No Weakness

Labelled as New Gen’s secret weapon, we have seen some great productions of Jevon so far. In his new release ‘No Weakness’ the rapper from West London once again proves his stunning musical potential by delivering strong rap verses to a laid-back tune. Conveying a trippy mood, the accompanied colourful visuals are the perfect addition to the track. Watch out for his upcoming project ‘Fell in love with Brazil’. Follow @jevonofficial

Charlotte Turnbull – Highs & Lows

Surrey singer Charlotte Turnbull continues her impressive output of personal and stripped back RnB with this latest offering. These visuals showcase her vocal talents nicely and follows the original which she dropped on Soundcloud last month which features a sparkly future production courtesy of Mat Diamond.

Malaika – Stop For A Minute

With only her second official single, Malaika is already showing signs of progressing her sound. This time sharing writing credits with BBC’s ‘Let It Shine’ winner Curtis T Johns and renowned producer John Beck, the young singer explores an 80s soul fink vibe with this jam. Follow @MalaikaMusicUK

RINNGS – Cutting The Cloth

London based multi-instrumentalists RINNGS are the perfect storm of Karl Zine and Nai Jannson. Their refreshing take on the process of music making sees the duo remove traditional instrumentation, in favour of using only vocals and percussion. The result? Expressive alt pop, with a lyrical realism escorting a journey through the highs, lows and ordinaries of life. Follow @RinngsMusic

Will Caminada – Caterpillar

Breaking free through art and becoming the best version of yourself – that’s what Will Caminada sensibly tries to process in his songs. With ‘Caterpillar’, the London-based singer-songwriter has released a beautifully inspiring song with a memorable chorus. Cleary influenced by the likes of Gallant and Maxwell, you can expect a smooth neo-soul production. Follow @willcaminada
