King No-One brings the swagger in full on the York based band’s next single, Alcatraz, whose title hits close to home considering my location here in the Bay. Prepare yourself for some funk strutting dance rock and buoyant indie pop hooks on this charmer whose sultry confidence melts like a combination of Saint Motel, Franz Ferdinand, and The Killers. Alcatraz arrives as a single on November 11th. King No-One just sold out their UK headline tour and they’ll be back on the road for a second headline run this December due to fan demand. Find out more about their tour, here.

Traversing a fine line between folk pop and soulful pop is Oliver Riot, a duo from Los Angeles who describe their own sound as “acid folk”. Oliver Riot recently released a spectacular EP named Hallucinate, off which comes a slinking beauty named Ivory Black. Ivory Black’s slinking vocals bring to mind Glass Animals, but set in a far crisper and blues instilled soundscape with graceful and elegant keys. Their milky songs are ripe for an evening of solitary contemplation and reflection. For another arresting tune off Hallucinate, stream Alcatraz below.
