With a sooty drawling, bluesy rocking appeal like that of artists like Hozier and Cobi comes 21 year old UK singer songwriter Sam Fender, who reels us in with a magnificent first single named Play God. Sam’s deeply rumbling arrival is assured and confident. His talent is undeniable, if not electrifying. If anyone could play god here, it’s Sam Fender, with his powerfully brooding, bass slapping single. Play God is out now on iTunes. You can also stream the track off Soundcloud below. Rest assured, we’ll be on the close lookout for more from Sam Fender.

Palace has held sway over my heart since the moment I listened to their very first songs over two years ago. Oh, how time flies, yet I still have not had a chance to see this London quartet live. I do, however, get to enjoy a brand new halcyon aching tune named Holy Smoke. The dusty, bluesy, heart on the sleeve indie rock drifter holds exactly the same sort of pensive mellow beauty that first won me over on songs like Bitter and Veins. I’m left wanting to gaze deep into a starry night sky, while my heart bursts with longing. Palace is preparing to release their first full length album, So Long Forever. Perhaps this means they might venture across the pond for some shows. One can dream. So Long Forever will be out on November 4th via Fiction Records. You can pre-order on iTunes, but I’ll be on the hunt for a physical copy here in the states.

Singer songwriter Samuel Ford hails from London, and he effortlessly steals my heart away with his earthy, heartfelt music. Just listen to Kings, a melodically melancholic drifter with hints of Local Natives melted into its rustic intimate yet intoxicating lush snugness. There’s also a hint of Palace like blues in the effervescent gem, rendering it a breathtaking, cinematic beauty. A closer look at this new artist on my radar revealed another gorgeous tune named This Is A Waltz, a song he unveiled last month. Stream the pensive divine tune and lose yourself in his sandy sublime voice again below.

English singer songwriter George Ezra has had quite the immense year, having released his debut album Wanted On Voyage and destroyed charts with both the album and its bluesy, folksy singles. Who doesn’t love the insanely catchy Budapest? Apparently, Jack That House does, too, but envisions it in a different light. The Jack That House bootleg of Budapest is a mesmerizing twist on tropical house, with a deeper, more resplendent bass line, crisp and entrancing.
