Finnish singer-songwriter Alma is not your average pop princess, but a hardcore, kick-ass pop sensation. She’s a true born-in-the-late-’90s girl, with unique looks, a bubbly-yet-edgy personality, sassy attitude and razor-sharp songwriting skills. Alma’s songs are hard-boiled pop anthems full of ...

With their guitar-heavy music, Gurr embody the West Coast sound, with comparisons being drawn to the likes of Surfer Blood and Best Coast. This sound is undoubtedly a remnant of Casablanca’s time studying abroad at UC Santa Barbara. To date, they’ve toured alongside ...

Shock tactics are nothing new in music, but it's rare to see a band back up the bluster with brains. London six-piece Happy Meals Ltd – now stylized as HMLTD – have certainly ruffled a few feathers, but there's a depth to their art that sets them apart from those who court controversy for it's own ...

Tout est magnifique ("Everything is wonderful"), boldly states Strasbourg-born and Paris-based producer Jacques's first EP, released on his up-and-coming label Pain Surprise. His claim is to be taken very literally; for the young, bizarre, hilarious yet profound man, who hides deep thoughts ...

This is how it starts. Youth and anger have always been a heady combination, and London five-piece Shame are no exception. These brash post-punks wield their instruments like weapons and turn teenage angst into venomous, pointed lyrics that are mature beyond their years. Fast becoming one of the most ...

You can get a pretty good grasp of Shitkid’s vibe just from looking at the artwork of her forthcoming debut album. Retro to the point of parody, it looks like it was cribbed from the early 1950’s; even her Midwestern “farmer girl” outfit is on point. Hit play ...

Born and raised in Ålesund, a small town on Norway's western coast, 20-year-old Sigrid grew up surrounded by the mountains and the sea. She was signed to the Norwegian indie label Petroleum at the age of 16 and recently landed a deal with Island Records in the UK. Sigrid scored her first big hit at ...

Norwegian four-piece Sløtface have this amazing pop-punk energy. Their music too is great and hailing from the third biggest city in Norway only cements the fact the levels of music production out of there are A1. Building on the initial success of four-track, ...

Over a few years and through various fragmented projects, Tanguy Haesevoets aka Teme Tan became a master in mixing sounds and his influences. In 2011, he touched base in Kinshasa, where he had been born and spent his early years, and auto-produced the album Matiti, with the title track displaying ...

Friends before they were a band, Diego García (guitar and vocals), Alex de Lucas (bass) and Larry Balboa (drums) met at university in Madrid and began playing punk music together. They learnt as they went along at each rehearsal, creating something from their guts. Now they're the most important band ...
