Every Thursday we’re sharing NEW MUSIC THURSDAY featuring recent discoveries, new acts we're currently listening to and our tips for the future. Now more than ever we feel it’s so important to mine the corners of the internet to find some of the wonderful creativity that abounds… Check out this week’s below:
Amsterdam-based singer-songwriter Nana Adjoa is a sonic explorer, armed with a deft poeticism and a fierce sense of musicianship. Nana has recently released her first single, "She’s Stronger” with WILDER Records (the new single’s only joint venture between Tom Windish and Future Classic). The song was premiered in Flood mag.

We were lucky enough to have Honeyglaze play for us at The Lexington with Konradsen before the lockdown in London in March. The 'ungodly fusion of 3 humans into a clamouring superorganism. It eats only fish, and demands undistracted and constant worship.”. A band we’re definitely keeping our eye firmly on.

London-based, fast-rising Lazarus Kane have released another banger, unveiling new track "Night Walking”. This follows their debut track ‘Narcissus’ last year out via our good friends Speedy Wunderground. Originally lined up for a whole string of live shows and festivals this summer, Lazarus Kane still has some in the diary for in the future - including an appearance at next January’s Rockaway Beach.

The follow-up to Wollongong musician’s February single ‘No More Regrets’, ‘On My Mind’ received its premiere on triple j last Monday. Stevan described the story behind ‘On My Mind’ as “we had just played our first interstate show in Brisbane and I was alone in a hotel room. Thinking about where my headspace was at the beginning of the year (2019) and where my state of mind was at that very moment.“On My Mind’ is literally a song about the things that were plaguing my thoughts that night at the Rydges Hotel in Brisbane.”

The DJ & Producer from Stoklhom Bella Boo has been in our radar for a long time. We discovered her with single "boyboy" back in 2018, and she just released a remix Jalisco by Babeheaven.
