Rames - Eleanor Street

Being their first offering of 2021, London based Rames continue to wow us with the gleaming indie-pop soundscapes that are evident within their latest release, 'Eleanor Street'.

Keeping to the touches of their previous tracks, the rising four-piece travel into the light productions of bright indie tendencies with the flow of airy guitars undertone that entwine with the lead singles husky vocal tones.

Described by the band as being "about having a laugh with your mates and having a good time", Rames latest single sets out a successful route for the future.


Taken from her forthcoming EP Retrogrades, GEISTE latest single, 'Twig' is a delicate yet effective offering that delves into a reflection of her past.

As she takes control of her own life, listeners swirl between ethereal vocals with the atmospheric undertones of dancing synths. Speaking about her latest work, GEISTE elaborated: "I wrote 'Twig' when I realised that I had a lot of difficulties keeping romantic relationships because of the amount of time I spend working on music and being creative. Especially when the other person does not understand - it feels like I suffocate and feel guilty for not giving enough to the other person - as if I don't have the space to grow. It also talks about toxic and unhealthy relationships when the other person tries to control you.”

With the EP around the corner, the St Tropez born artistic visionary captures us from the first beat.

Jade Morgan Kelly - Terrified

Riser Jade Morgan Kelly continues to sparkle through the themes of urban pop within her latest release, 'Terrified'.

Following the release of her debut, Jade soars through intimate lyrics that bounce between a shimmer of modern soundscapes, fulfilled by the influences of R&B and indie-pop. Speaking about the meaning behind the song, she revealed: "You're in love, and it is going well. Happy days but why are you scared of it going wrong? ‘Terrified’ is explaining your venerability of the relationship and how dependent you have now become on your partner and scared of letting your own independence go.”

At only 19-years-old, Jade Morgan Kelly is on the cusp of becoming one to watch throughout the UK music scene and follow the footsteps of Anne Marie and Mae Muller.

Barnaby Keen - Trust Me

London based Barnaby Keen immerses through the kaleidoscopic soundscapes of his latest release, 'Trust Me'.

With touches of rich melodies that blossom with confidence, Barnaby Keen follows the steps of his ever-presenting career within the London music scene. As he recalls the inspiration of the track, he said: “I was seeing a Romanian bodybuilder for a while - she was a tree surgeon and used to come up with songs whilst working. She used to hum this melody but didn’t know where it had come from and assumed it was an old folk song." He added after living in a disused petrol station and returning to the familiar sounds after finding an organ: "I took part of it and then wrote the song, remembering our time together.”

From the oaths of being a music engineer to now gracing us with the unique soundscapes of his work, Barnaby Keen is heading on the right path.

Jean-Mikhael - Neighbours are Calling

Infusing the fusion of old school funk with the modern approach of soul, riser Jean Mikhael explores the intimacies of a relationship within his latest release, 'Neighbours are Calling'.

As he follows the footsteps of Adele and Jessie J, the BRIT School graduate has gone from the stages of West Ends to charting the charts and makes a return with the glossy flavour of bittersweet R&B. Speaking on the track, the singer-songwriter explained: "It is also about me meeting someone and us both being connected so deeply from the beginning. It had us at a point we could see a future together from the start, but it never went to that next step. So we were always just trying to live in the moment and relive the day we saw each other for the first time. Everything just stayed surface level in the relationship. We would have amazing sex, and that’s all it stayed as. We both wanted more, but we were too scared to go to that degree of expressing ourselves, so it was just a constant rollercoaster of being in each others company and then disappearing and being back for a short period again. A constant cycle of feeding into a ‘bad habit’."

From his debut EP 'The Deal' to his first offering in two years, Jean Mikhael next step is one to keep your eyes on.
