September 4 2015 - Hot Top Ten
GIRL FRIEND - ELECTRIC BLUE
The Manchester outfit are back with a new track - "the soundtrack to a bittersweet romantic failure". Sounds a winner to us, and the sensual vocals over synth lined rhythm will help these boys go far. Possibly their strongest track to date.

GHOSTS IN POCKET - BARBERTON

THE KING'S PARADE - SILHOUETTE
Latest single - released last week and taken from upcoming EP out, September 11 - from the Cricklewood, north-west London four-piece who sound like they've been wafted over from Detroit.
