We couldn’t be more amazed at how much amazing music this year has to offer already. Read all about our picks for this week below.

River Matthews – Fool For You

River Matthews is an artist for whom the stars seem to have aligned since the days of playing cover songs in local pubs. A career as a musical therapy teacher, working with the likes of Jamie Scott and supporting Rag’n’Bone Man have led to the stunning music which can be heard in River’s debut album ‘Imogen’. The final single before the release is the spine-tingling ‘Fool For You’. Songwriting doesn’t come any more special than this. Follow @RiverMatthews


FNP – Always Just Lost In You

Originally from just outside Luton, FNP began his musical journey making drum and bass. Now focusing on his own projects, the London producers has never been one to stick to a specific style of production. Previous releases have drifted in the realms of techno, electronica and experimental, whereas this release is a straight up, feel-good piece of nu-wave disco. Follow @fnp


RJ Thompson – Think About You

With a sound steeped in rich 80s influence, the earworm anthem ‘Think About You’ is the latest single to be lifted from RJ’s critically acclaimed debut album ‘Echo Chamber’. While RJ is known for marrying contradictions in the sound and lyrical content of his work, for the observational ‘Think About You’, he keeps it simple and straight to the point. @RJThompsonmusic


Captain Kidd – Bleed

Through his fresh, dance-able sound, Captain Kidd has managed to captivate international crowds. His synth-driven approach and sultry lyrics are also recognisable in their brand new release ‘Bleed’ which is indie-pop as its finest – genuinely including catchy afrobeat rhythms which turn this one into a real club hit.

King Kay – Too Deep

Taken from his critically acclaimed ‘Winner’s Winter’ mixtape, North London rapper and producer King Kay is proud to unveil the music video for his fan-favourite rework of the dvsn cut of the same name. Driven by his jazz and soul roots, and his fresh twist to a classic Hip Hop sound, King Kay turns the dvsn classic on its head, and completely transforms the sultry R&B jam into his own rap confessional, packed hard-hitting lyrics about the current state of music and his position within it, while still offering a glimpse of a softer side.

Comfort – Comfort

A new name to ears but the band’s friendship tells of a different story, the history of Comfort goes back to the three being childhood friends. Now, the alternative group strive for making music that holds familiarity yet feels distant to their listeners. ‘Comfort’ is the first single from their upcoming debut EP –  laid-back drumbeats, slightly synth-laden hooks and brilliant vocals by Brendan guaranteed.

Alex Hedley – Possibilty

Recently Alex Hedley shared a new video for ‘Possibility’, the last single to be taken from his new solo ’This Life’ EP. After being a front man for Saturday Sun for a while, Alex is now approaching a solo career which can be compared to Nick Drake. You can expect mellow accoustic guitar vibes, honest lyrics and incredible vocals. Follow @alexhedleymusic
