#1 Jorja Smith – Blue Lights

This song will paint a picture in your mind, mesmerising in so many ways.

#2 LANY – yea, babe, no way

Something I discovered while compiling the list, it’s calm yet catchy, a more realistic interpretation of a relationship than your average pop song.

#3 Red Hot Chili Peppers – Dark Necessities

On the surface they’ve changed, but the heart of their songs has remained true.

#4 Sampha – Timmy’s Prayer

Most recognised for his work with SBTRKT, but he’s a very gifted songwriter of his own.

#5 Black Foxxes – I’m Not Well

Our band of the moment. You’ll feel this one in your stomach.

#6 Rejjie Snow – Blakkst Skn

Smooth and sexy bars, with a killer female hook.

#7 The Gaslight Anthem – Old White Lincoln

Taken from the much loved debut album, reignite your obsession with this band.

#8 Samm Henshaw – Autonomy (Slave)

An anthem from an artist just waiting to be heard.

#9 George Maple – Sticks and Horses

Revealing a darker side to her songwriting skills and vocal talent, an intriguing listen.

The Hot List #2

If you listen to anything this week, it should be these tracks.

#4 Tom Prior – Bad Advice

Keep an eye out for this artist, he’s tipped for big things. This track sounds like Arctic Monkeys, but better.
