Molly Pinto Madigan

On The Hunt from the album Wildwood Bride Self Released (March 2015)

Chris Hartt

What's Left To Go from the EP To Your Love Self Released (May 2015)

To Your Love is, quite simply, a gorgeous debut release; a haunting, enervating nostalgia that provides an apposite soundtrack to the lonely viewing of old home videos - the kind that conjure a semblance of a person, time, feeling or ambience into being that we know in our heart can never truly return for real.

Rosemary & Garlic

The Dancers from the EP The Kingfisher Self Released (Jan 2015)

Rosemary and Garlic’s debut EP is a truly sublime epic of mood; a pensive and often lonely telling of personal stories amid wonderfully atmospheric backdrops of timeless, universe-controlled grandeur that are simply too huge and important for one single consciousness to ever truly grasp.

All The King's Daughters

One Stitch At A Time from the EP Because I Wanted To Self Released (January 2015)

Carefully measured, but with moments of considerable breeze, the debut release from innately charismatic Dutch-based sisterly duo, All The King’s Daughters, is a collection of irresistible harmonies delivered with a conveyance of unshakeable zest; the creators sounding unfalteringly immersed and united in their music.

Jillian Kay

Dead Flowers from the EP Dead Flowers Self Released (June 2015)

Wonderfully distinctive and erratic, Dead Flowers is a fiercely raw and heart-wrenchingly fragile outpouring of the lurking thoughts and feelings that disturb normality; Jillian Kay, at times, just daring the world to ignore the words that her delivery suggests she simply must release.

Aisha Badru

Navy Blues from the EP Vacancy Self Released (February 2015)

A collection that mesmerises with its copious and laudable levels of vulnerability, Vacancy hints strongly at a longing that Aisha Badru’s soft, exquisite vocals and delicate, carefully constructed songs could not be better suited to expressing.

Rosie Caldecott

Tremors from the album Inside Out Self Released (July 2015)

Combining bravely progressive structures with unapologetically poetic folk sensibilities, Inside Out is refined and elaborate; Rosie Caldecott’s charming voice and wise, earnest delivery leaving one more than happy to be lost within the labyrinthian intricacies of a splendid debut effort.

Will Love Grow? from the EP The Lost Years Self Released (Dec 2014)

Blackbird Peregrine

Carry The Torch from the EP Dreams Can Fly Self Released (March 2015)

Enveloped by a dense, inescapable atmosphere, Blackbird Peregrine's Dreams Can Fly occasionally stirs but mostly simmers, placing tales of immaculately and plaintively communicated loss – told with such manifest and honestly as to draw absolute admiration – alongside more celebratory notes that embrace the heavy ambience and natural mystique the duo's sound exemplifies.

Alanna Eileen

Mirror and the Mime from the EP Absence Self Released (January 2015)

A melancholic but wonderful reminder of what it is to truly feel something important, Alanna Eileen’s Absence is an intensely emotional debut of haunting lucidity and ghostly, affecting beauty.

Tanner Swift (Jvdas)

Wait from the EP I'm Losing Friends Self Released (May 2015)

Tanner Swift’s debut effort is a sincere and relatable admittance of the inner-turmoil caused by the past wrongs and hurt that can shape one’s present, yet for all the mistakes and let-downs it details, I’m Losing Friends ultimately comes through as a redemptive effort; one intent on birthing something better for the future.
