PALE HONEY | SWEDEN
Gothenburg band Pale Honey emerge again from their studio this October to release a brand new single Real Thing the first new material to be taken from the follow-up to 2015’s acclaimed self-titled debut. Praised for their sparse, direct and distortion-heavy rock, Real Thing sees the band continue to plough these furrows, but also experiment more with percussion and electronics, while lead singer Tuva Lodmark laces a commanding and intense vocal into the mix.

M.I.L.K | DENMARK
Copenhagen’s M.I.L.K. announced himself last year with the glorious ‘If We Want To’ - which has since seen 350,000 streams on SoundCloud, and hugely encouraging tips from the likes of The Line Of Best Fit, SPIN, NME, Nowness, Indie Shuffle, Hillydilly and many more.
An intriguing concoction of tropical production, swaying percussion, and sumptuous melodies, M.I.L.K.’s songwriting harks back to the time of 70's legends such as Curtis Mayfield or Shuggie Otis, but most certainly hints at more modern electronic acts such as Jungle, Rhye or Leisure when it comes to production and overall expression.

HAVE YOU EVER SEEN THE JANE FONDA AEROBIC VHS? | FINLAND
Helsinki’s HAVE YOU EVER SEEN THE JANE FONDA AEROBIC VHS? gets its influences from a rather wide range of genres: all the way from garage rock to doo wop, rock'n'roll to
80's dream pop and 60's soul and girl groups. And that’s even without a guitar player in sight.
Instead melodies and distorted sound walls are created by good old Casio and Eco-organs.
Packed with 60's girl group/soul-melodies, bubble gum punk riffs and pounding drums, which will make your eardrums bleed, this newcomer is truly something to get to know.
