September always feels like a fresh start – there’s a slight chill in the air, our wardrobes are full of A/W clothes and we’ve got a brand new playlist to enjoy on the commute. It’s a great time to discover new artists and fall in love with new sounds – here are some of our current faves…
Jorja Smith is a singer from the West Midlands with a soft, gentle sound and introspective lyrics. She’s already collaborated with Drake and Stormzy – expect to hear great things from this talented woman.
Cuco, an LA musician and producer, switches effortlessly between English and Spanish in his songs, which see him sing over carefully crafted synth beats. His third album is out sometime this year and is sure to be his breakthrough hit.
The Magic Gang is a four-piece from Brighton with a classic 60s rock sound that has a touch of power pop – perfect for sunny Sunday mornings. They’ve already performed with Wolf Alice and 2018 saw them headline their first UK tour.
You’ve probably heard the name Rex Orange County on the radio this summer – the 21-year-old from Surrey comes from the BRIT school of talent. With a melodic mix of pop, soul and rap, his sound feels fresh and modern for 2018.
