Holy Esque ‘Hunger’

‘Hunger’ is the brooding new single from alternative rockers Holy Esque. Released alongside previous single ‘Ask Me Twice’, the tune precedes a third and final album available March 8th titled ‘Lay My Head Down Slow’ produced in 2021 by the celebrated Paul Savage via Beyond The Frequency Records. Combining atmospheric melodies with introspective lyrics, the upcoming LP is said to ‘capture everything Holy Esque was and is. Ferocious, defying, captivating and powerful.’


A heartfelt narrative and honest lyricism forms the latest single from the indie quartet, seeing smooth saxophone licks in a much more stripped back and refined approach to their sound. Produced by Jamie Holmes at the Castle of Doom studios in Glasgow, ‘Idea of You’ provides a profound blend of singalong melodies infused with soaring ambient sounds. Rhythmic grooves between intricate basslines and solidified drumming create an overall welcoming sound with hints of nostalgia towards favourable summer nights.

Georgia ‘Too Much Too Little’ 

Georgie reaches peak dance euphoria once again on new single ‘Too Much Too Little’. It’s a potent, club-ready dancefloor-filler – with Georgia reflecting on our modern compulsions. Of the track, Georgia says: “It’s so hard at the moment to try and contemplate a balanced life when so much is going on, in the news, on social media, everywhere. I find it hard to sometimes see what’s reality and what’s fantasy.”


This Edinburgh outfit first came onto our radar with their moody, esoteric sound a couple of years ago – and now they’re back at their heaviest with ‘PROJECT 46’. Opening with wall of guitars, the track is a dark, brooding thing – driven by an onslaught of riffs and rhythms, with pensive vocals peeping through the murky atmosphere. It’s loud, relentless and an invigorating return.

Bess Atwell ‘Release Myself’  

Bess Atwell has shared details of her upcoming Aaron Dessner-produced album ‘Light Sleeper’, out on 24th May. Alongside the news, she has shared a beguiling new track – imbued with warm, effervescent folk-rock influences. Speaking of the track, she said: “This was the first time I’ve managed to write about my panic disorder without slipping too far into sorry-for-myself or cheesy, faux-empowering territory. It’s a song that says “hey I’m struggling but I’m not a victim”.
