We first picked up on UK band Sorry and their rather moody rock a few months ago when they shared their song 2 Down 2 Dance ahead of a 7″ release. We were immediately drawn to their dark knotted sound. And now the four piece, signed to Domino, have shared a chunky, grungy treat named Showgirl produced by Sean Oakley (who previously collaborated with James Blake and Frank Ocean). The muddy glowering, gnarled and angsty song more than boosts our unapologetic love for Sorry. Showgirl is available from iTunes, here.

This one’s been flittering about the interwebs for a month now, but we need to make sure you don’t miss out on the track, especially if you’re a Halsey fan, or a fan of electronic music that is profoundly moving and cathartic. Australian producer vowl. has teamed up with his buddy from Norway, hanz, to give Halsey’s Sorry a pitch shifted cinematic trap and future bass transformation that near leaves me speechless with its rousing grandeur and magnificence. It’s a heart bursting opus swimming with refined texture and glassy jarring beats. The beautiful remix is a free download, here.

2 Down 2 Dance may seem a rather glum tune, but the knotted and gnarled indie rock track easily leaves me giddily swaying on my feet anyway. The song comes from a band named Sorry, who obviously have nothing to apologize for considering the contagious allure and febrile potency of the UK four piece’s scuzzy tune. 2 Down 2 Dance will be out next month on 7″ vinyl, and it comes with a music video directed by members of Sorry. Pre-order the 7″, here. Stream/download 2 Down 2 Dance via major platforms, here.

Maggie Horn’s bright tinkling Sorry emanates vintage charm. It’s the sort of heartwarming nostalgic pop that came out of the 60′s. Its golden chimes and brassy sass remind me of long silent Madeleine Follin lead indie favorites Cults, whom I happen to miss very much. Sorry arrives as the companion to They All Say as a AA-single. Stream that jangling below. Both perky hooking tracks are out now via il Brutto Records. Snag them from iTunes, here. An alternate stream for Sorry off Soundcloud can also be found below.

As I’d expect of any song entitled Sorry, this one is ripe with heartbreaking remorse. But this isn’t any song, this is an Aquilo song, which means it’s far more beautiful than the majority of other songs you’ve ever heard in your life. The British duo proceeds to shatter hearts with their tender soothing, soulful billowing pop, rendering us sappy, regretful messes. But we return to be ravaged again and again by the atmospheric ambient pop song, because it’s that sublime a listen despite all the aching feels it dredges up out of our wounded hearts. Hold your loved ones close for this one, and bring a tissue. Sorry will be on Aquilo’s debut album Silhouettes, due to arrive January 27th. Pre-order, here.

Essex four piece Youth Club announced their UK headline tour earlier today. They also dropped a punchy music video for their latest single, Sorry, a splendorous tune already stacking up countless streams on Spotify. We’re no strangers to Sorry’s sultry drawling vocals and rich tropical production, having fallen for Youth Club’s music this past year. The band has reminded us many times before of Two Door Cinema Club’s dance rock, but they arrive with a Years and Years like R&B soulfulness on Sorry. The new single can be purchased now from iTunes. For details on their UK tour, head to their website.

Through a foggy mist of dreamy reflection comes the ambient pop and alt R&B of new London based act IDER. The duo arrive with debut single Sorry, a hushed beauty with the sleekness of Oh Wonder, the feathery sensuality of WET, and the atmospheric spaciousness of Daughter. The exposed tenderness and intimate honesty of Sorry also evoke Soak. I’m wrapped up in the folds of IDER, and I don’t think it’s possible to extricate myself from its hold.

Over half a year ago, young Danish quartet Liss emerged to sweep me off my feet with their unique blend of R&B pop, psychedelic soul, and electronica. Come May 13th, Liss will be releasing a four track EP named First, and on none other than much venerated label XL, whose roster I and some of my friends adore near religiously. Sorry is Liss’ new taste off the EP, and its a spellbinding blend of Years and Years like tropics hued pop, Unknown Mortal Orchestra like retro creaminess, and Autre Ne Veut like R&B vocals. Watch Liss’ video for Sorry above, and purchase the single from various outlets, here. Watch for Liss to make a huge splash as the release date for their debut EP approaches.

Maybe you can recall the electro-pop producer Molina who gave us his three part trilogy in recent months. He’s back again but this time with a fusion of the ever popular Justin Bieber song ‘Sorry’ and massages it with ‘Company’. The thumping in the song to me is metaphorical to how loud your heart pounds when asking for forgiveness for the millionth time and when you reveal your vulnerabilities / need of someone else’s company. The remix is aching.

Molina was recently in New York playing alongside Guy Gerber and will be opening for Fedde Le Grand really soon. You can catch him March 18th in Mexico City at Sens Club.

From one cover we move on to a new one, except this one woos with satin smoothness and intoxicates with crisp chops. Lately, covers seem to be all about The Weeknd, Adele, and Justin Bieber these days. This one falls into the latter category. Bieber’s Sorry goes future bass and chill trap on a fabulous cover refix by a production act named AUGUSTII. Their cover features honeyed vocals by Chicago’s Anthony Pavel. The drops on this Sorry are pure exhilaration. I’d accept this apology any day for any grievance. Download the cover for free, here.
