Lots to recommend for you this week – with new offerings from Yvonne McDonnell, Sam Weber, Soccer Mommy, Squirrel Flower, Sassy 009, Piers Faccina and the fabulous Nadia Reid.
London-based folk singer songwriter, Yvonne McDonnell, is back with a brand new single for those keen on all things Kate Rusby, Lisa Hannigan and Joanna Newsom – listen above.
New Zealander Nadia Reid, now Stateside resident, is geeing up for third album Out of My Province, set for release next March. It should show us ‘Nadia’s wildly expanding [her] trajectory, this time from outside her comfort zone’. The video for new single Best Thing is above.
Sam Weber’s third album, Everything Comes True, is out in the UK on 10th January 2020 on Sonic Unyon Records. New single, Probably Not, is definitely ones for fans of Bruce Springsteen – a great return for the acclaimed Canadian songwriter.
Squirrel Flower’s an artist we absolutely love, and can’t wait for you to hear her upcoming album. But while you wait, new single, Headlights, could be her best yet.
We absolutely loved Clairo’s debut album, Immunity, and now’s she’s back – lending her voice to Norwegian electro pop act, Sassy 009’s new single, Lara.
Soccer Mommy has released her third new track since September, this time to appear on a soundtrack for new horror movie The Turning. Feed is a ‘song about letting a demon feed off your body’. It isn’t quite that ghastly – listen here.
Piers Faccini’s new single is quite something. Finding inspiration from the British and North American folk that coloured his first forays into songwriting, Could Have Been You has a timeless and poetic feel to it.
