Honey Moon make vintage-sounding, escapist jangle-pop that transports you back in time several decades. Now ahead of the release of their new EP ‘Four More From…’ on 21st September, the London four-piece have shared new track ‘Mover In The Dark’.
In recent years, the most vital, inclusive, and innovative jazz scene on earth has shifted east across the Atlantic to London, and the figure that stands atop this revolution is saxophonist Shabaka Hutchings and his band Sons of Kemet. The Birmingham-raised Hutchings spent the formative years of his youth in Barbados, an island rife with reminders of Britain’s colonial history, where the budding artist first picked up the saxophone and where the seeds of his creative aesthetic in the roots of the African diaspora were planted.
Now British scene superstar Hutchings brings his saxophone, tuba, and double drums quartet, performing music from their Impulse! Records debut, Your Queen is a Reptile.
L.A. wunderkind Austin W. Anderson (fka Austin Feinstein) quickly made a name for himself as a guitarist working with Tyler, The Creator and Frank Ocean. His band Slow Hollows creates hazy post-punk songs that’ll get you in your feelings, and they’re back with the glittery “Lessons For Later.”
Liverpool is producing some of the most exciting new musical artists in the UK right now, with Her’s and Pizzagirl amongst others putting the indie spotlight on the city. Alex Stephens aka Strawberry Guy dropped his excellent woozy debut dream pop single ‘Without You’.

Moonlighting as a live keyboard player for The Orielles, Stephens has been getting a taste for tour-life and is gearing up to take Strawberry Guy live – watch this space! With many more unreleased tracks and a forthcoming EP release on the horizon, we’re really excited to hear more music and watch Strawberry Guy bloom. Strawberry Guy is for fans of Beach House, Tame Impala and Yellow Days. Read our chat below.
