Una Healy: offers fans a real insight into her most personal feelings

Our selection of tracks come from Una Healy, Band Of Skulls, August Landelius, The Luck, Saint Agnes and Jamie Adam

Una Healy

This stunning country-tinged new single is Healy’s most honest release to date. The lyrics focus on how the singer felt when her marriage with Irish rugby star Ben Foden fell apart after cheating allegations surfaced, offering fans a real insight into her most personal feelings at this time. Country music is famous for its honest storytelling style and, with Strangers, Healy has delivered an outstanding record that is breathtakingly beautiful and honest. LK

So Recordings

Russell Marsden and Emma Richardson return with an infectious outpouring of positivity and their decision to ignore the fear and powerlessness enveloping modern life and to channel euphoria into their songs instead has paid off. The pair swap vocals over a pulsating rhythm track and it’s enough to make you think that things might all be okay. DH

Naiv Recordings

After a three-year hiatus, August Landelius is back with his brand new single which is a woozy trip-hop, experimental electronica track that acts as a preview to his long-awaited new album which is slated for release later this year. The single features a ghostly edge that draws you in and offers fans a taste of what’s to come from this rather exciting artist. The Swedish star is definitely on the rise and his latest offering perfectly sums up what type of artist he is. LK

Common Market Media

Sibling Americana duo The Luck have shared their gorgeous new single and it offers fans a wonderful slice of what the duo have to offer. With tight harmonies and a wonderfully exciting guitar-driven beat, this has a musical theatre vibe that paints a gorgeous picture with the lyrics. This wouldn’t be out of place on something like The Greatest Showman. This band have everything they need to become global stars. LK

Self Released

The garage-rock band deliver a dark, Detroit-style track that has a thumping drum bass and an electrifying production that will leave heavy rock fans wanting more and more. It has an overlay of rock beats and a pulsating lyrical blend that offers a really exciting mix of sounds to the listeners. The fresh hooks and classic rock edge gives it a new edge and elevates the track to new levels making it a real standout release. LK


This fresh and exciting psych-pop artist returns with a brand new single, which is lifted off his forthcoming debut LP and it’s a major step up in sound from the Irish rising star. The exhilarating offering mixes reverb-laden vocals and guitar with a sexy bassline, before the chorus swoops in with a swirling ambience that really packs a punch. Nocturnal delivers a wonderful mix of styles and genres overlayed with a psychedelic production that makes it stand out from the crowd. LK

Words: Laura Klonowski, Duncan Haskell
