2/ ‘Feels’ by DEEPER (Chicago, US)
An irresistible 2-minute jingle jangle guitar drone with a feverish drive fueled by cutting riffs. No-nonsense electricity bringing Texan rockers Parquet Courts to mind. This is a glowing score from the band’s self-titled debut full length – out on 25 May via Firetalk.

3/ ‘Statuesque’ by YOUTH MAN (Birmingham, UK)
This destructive Brummie sex punk duo comes right at your earsystem with a rowdy mid-tempo smack. What a scorching intensity, what a badass bass, what an impressive vox.
