Your weekly round-up of the best new releases and emerging artists from the past week. Featuring new music from BETSY, Banks and ELOHIM…
Kimbra: Everybody Knows
New Zealand’s very own, Kimbra, is back with new music and a new album, titled Primal Heart, out early next year. She’s shared a taster in the form of the soul-infused synth-pop Everybody Knows. If this is what’s to come from this album, then bring on 2018 quickly…
Miley Cyrus: She’s Not Him
Miley has departed from her craze infused Bangerz era and has returned with the country-pop follow-up Younger Now. This sees Cyrus reinventing her sound and moving into a more mature sound. The album even has a Dolly Parton feature, what more could you possibly need…
BETSY: Heavy Head
Whilst the Cher comparisons are inevitable with this one, BETSY’s self-titled debut is more than enough proof that the Welsh vocal-powerhouse has the talent, the voice and the songs to mark her out as one of the finest unique artists to emerge in recent months. Just take a listen to Heavy Head…

First Aid Kit: It’s a Shame
Swedish duo First Aid Kit’s narrative folk makes a return in a follow-up to their 2014 Columbia Records debut Stay Gold. Their modest, Sixties-inspired country infused self-expression reaches maturity in It’s a Shame, as the two siblings enter a new lyrical stage of their careers.
The reigning Queen of peculiar pop marks her return with the intriguing Underdog. Features actual barking…
ELOHIM: The Wave
The gal can seriously do no wrong… HISKIND fav ELOHIM follows her impressive streak of recent single releases with the equally-insane The Wave, bringing the biggest chorus of this week with it.
New kid on the block Lostchild has every reason to work his way onto your emerging talent radars, churning out pretty damn impressive 80s-tinged synthpop over the past 12 months. Skin, a cover from Madonna’s iconic Ray Of Light record, joins the list of Lostchild tracks you didn’t know you needed in your life. Better still, this one’s a free download.
Roe: Playground Fights
Blissful vocals and as chilled-out as a guitar line is ever going to get, Roe’s Playground Fights sounds like London Grammar at their best with the added benefits of searing percussion. A good combo if you ask us.
Boba K: Nothing Can Stop Us Now
Newcomer Boba K makes the kind of pop perfect for filling the giant MØ-shaped hole we’ve been left with whilst Ms Ørsted Andersen takes her time doing whatever she’s doing… Nothing Can Stop Us Now should, rightfully, be huge.
