We’re only halfway through the year, but 2017 has already been a massive year for music. With everyone from Kendrick Lamar to Zara Larsson dropping their much-hyped new tunes already, there are a ton of hot new records for you to download, stream and sing along to. Here are some of our faves…
Diet Cig – Swear I’m Good At This
This Brooklyn band specialises in lovesick fuzz-pop – their upbeat debut gives us all of the feels.
Jesus & Mary Chain – Damage Joy
Scottish brothers Jim and William Reid make a welcome return to music with their usual mix of heady rock tunes and moody ballads.
Zara Larsson – So Good
Aside from being our ultimate #girlcrush, Zara’s second studio album more than lives up to its namesake.
Sampha – Process
Sampha has worked with huge names like Beyoncé, Drake and Kanye in the past, so you this experimental R&B album is well worth a listen.
Cherry Glazerr – Apocalipstick
There’s a lot to love about this record – and we’re not just talking about the kick-ass album artwork and super cool title.
Stormzy – Gang Signs & Prayer
Man of the moment Stormzy seriously delivers with his gospel-tinged grime debut – turn up the volume and listen to this epic 16-track project on repeat.
Kendrick Lamar – DAMN
DAMN indeed! The lyric ‘show me somethin’ natural like ass with some stretch marks’ has gone down in music history.
Arca – Arca
The man behind some of FKA twigs, Frank Ocean and Dean Blunt’s most iconic tracks returns with his self-titled third studio album. The songs ‘Last Night’ and ‘Skin’ are a must-listen.
