By | Published on Tuesday 1 June 2021



Marshmello and DJ Carnage have released new track ‘Back In Time’.

Wretch 32 released surprise new album ‘Little Big Man’ on Friday. “I was trying to put myself in a seventeen year old’s body and trying to see how they feel”, he says of the idea behind it. “How does it feel to come out of prison at that age? What struggles do I face? As a senior, I’m seeing a pattern and a cycle and this was about me trying to understand their experiences”. Here’s a short film to introduce the project.

At The Gates have released new track ‘The Paradox’. It’s the second single from their upcoming new album ‘The Nightmare Of Being’, which is out on 2 Jul.

Girli has released new single ‘More Than A Friend’. “I wrote this song about crushing hard on a girl who didn’t want me back”, she says. “It’s about the sexual frustration of wanting someone so bad but knowing they just don’t like you like that”.

Mei has released new single ‘See Us’.



Enter Shikari have been announced as the Saturday night headliners for next month’s mini Download Festival, which is being run as a COVID test event. “After eighteen months trapped inside, we cannot wait to be back in our favourite element; playing music beneath an open sky”, says vocalist Rou Reynolds. “We’re incredibly proud to be headlining an event that helps to get live music back on its feet in the UK”.

Little Simz has announced UK tour dates in November and December this year, finishing up at Brixton Academy in London on 16 Dec. Tickets go on sale on Friday.
