Based between London and NYC, the enigmatic boy/girl duo Be&Bea return with this glossy, synth-edged, r’n'b-flecked number, as smooth and polished as a Galaxy chocolate bar:
It follows the cosier pop tones of Grows.

It might be pissing rain in London constantly right now, but let’s pretend it’s summer with this soul-tinged house number by Siloet.

Valentina last featured on this blog as a solo artist (there was the no small matter of Gabriel, a tie-up with Joe Goddard) back in 2009: a time when men were men, and yours truly had a much less overhanging stomach. But here she finally is again; Ladders hails from a new five-track EP via Greco-Roman called Wolves, of which the original Gabriel - for it was her song, in fact – is also a part. It’s a smooth, soul-pop number that’s perfect for a slumberous Sunday night after hours under the yellow stuff.

Evelyn Burke sang on Kankouran’s Rivers, that ubiquitous Skins-advert song of almost exactly 12 months ago. She normally does solo stuff, however, and possesses one of those silky chanteuse voices that instantly soothe troubled heads. But don’t think Evelyn’s all goodwill and daytime TV sobriety: in fact, she still happily swears in her songs, and evidently stays up all night on occasion – both things which thoroughly impress SOIWT. And her Twitter profile says she goes commando once a week (day unspecified). Blimey. Time for a lie-down.

Othello Woolf’s gone all soul on his new single. Previous efforts, including the Cold In Flesh EP, have offered spirited odd-pop sounds of various descriptions, with a common upbeat, perky nature. Keep On, however, is much more chill: a funky, sleek and unshowy number that works like a musical massage for tired heads.
