Ones to Watch

It’s been a while since I last shared my new musical loves, as my University work took priority over my life. But while I was away I delved into the collections of some incredible artists and it took me a long time to be able to compile them into the most promising acts to keep your eyes on!

These guys have stacks of potential and I can really see them making it big, and I just can’t wait to hear what more they have to bring!

Declan McKenna – Paracetamol

Declan McKenna has already started to make waves with his incredible music that can only be described as the lovechild of  Ezra Koenig and Jamie T. Yet it’s his Alex Turner- like lyrical abilities that lead him to be signed to Columbia Records. I’m obsessed with this track, Paracetamol, right now, and I know you will be too!

Black Honey – Corrine

Black Honey have completely taken over my life these past few months. Their lo-fi indie sound has definitely started to make an impression on the scene, and despite Izzy (lead vocalist) stating that “If it was my way we’d still be a secret band”, they’re growing with every waking second, and I can’t wait to see what they do next.

Rukshana Merrise – Money

I’ve been a fan of Rukshana Merrise for quite some time now, but I can’t say I was fully excited about her when I initially found her earlier tracks, yet, as with most artists, it only takes one song to change my opinion of everything. Money is an incredibly upbeat track that I can’t help but bob my head to and scream along to. After signing to one of my favourite labels, Communion Records, I knew that Rukshana would be going on to great things, and this is proof of that!
