It’s the end of the week, which means there’s good listening ahead. Here are five brand new releases which caught our eye.

Middle Kids – Real Thing

Middle Kids are back with the first single off their upcoming EP titled New Songs For Old Problems.

Hannah Joy’s honest songwriting alongside the band’s iconic indie-rock feel makes us excited for plenty more where this is coming from.

Interpol – The Weekend

The latest single from Interpol since their 2018 album Marauder is the first taste of their soon-to-be-released EP A Fine Mess, out 17th May.

In a statement they said the EP will be “a living, breathing postcard from the band to their fans as they tour the world throughout 2019, and a linear continuation of the visceral and contagious energy set loose with Marauder.”

Billie Eilish – When We All Fall Asleep , Where Do We Go?

Since finding a loyal fan base at just 15 years of age, Billie Eilish has come a long way in just over two years. Her debut album is a whirlwind of heavy production intertwined with delicate and intricate vocals not to be underestimated.

Sly Withers- Sad Guy

WA four-piece Sly Withers’ new indie-punk track Sad Guy starts off as a heart-on-your-sleeve ballad before escalating into a head banging jam.

The single comes in conjunction with a national tour announcement for this May/June, so if you’re a fan get your tickets here.

Lupa J – The Crash

Lupa J aka Imogen Jones has done it again, calling in some heartfelt songwriting and infectious production on newest track The Crash.

If that wasn’t enough brilliance, she also co-directed the music video, exploring an escapist fantasy. Watch below.
