London pop soloist Edith brings a smooth and polished single with No Matter What You Do. It’s a shake-and-stir of synths, vulnerability and hooks so hooky they could catch plankton. She’s planning to release an album this year - in the meantime pass an ear by her previous, self-titled EP, Edith and click those social icons up there on the right.
We’ve got a London theme this month with three artists from our infamous capital - but that’s where the similarities end and the eclecticism begins. Listen to crispy pop from Edith, urban meets punk-indie vibes from Charlie Steel and Country & Western from The Swamp Stomp String Band. Tying it all up with a peek into recent grassroots music news, we’ve got February all tied up.
Charlie Steel’s Up All Night brings us an ambling journey through his mind, a menagerie of urban moments told through the medium of chill-rap and steady indie guitars. There’s five singles planned for this year, with one just out now: KNOCKS, complete with music video. In his own words, it’s his “most punk angry rant song to date”. Sounds good to us.
The Swamp Stomp String Band
When it’s time to kick back and lap up the charm, what could be better than some retro country & western? To that end, we present Drink Wine Blues from The Swamp Stomp String Band. The twang-masters released it as a lead to their upcoming album, Old Dog, Old Tricks, and will see them touring London and the southwest in March and April.
