It has been particularly fruitful in the debut album department this August with a number of fearsome first records materialising. Alex the Astronaut blew us away with her stellar debut The Theory of Absolutely Nothing, Another Sky took us to the clouds with the heavenly I Slept On The Floor, and BLOXX solidified their stake as indie rocks shiniest new saviours with Lie Out LoudAnd that is just to name a few.

But the new kids don’t take all the glory. Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion brought us ‘WAP’ which has notoriously become the sound of Summer 2020, while Scottish behemoths, Biffy Clyro, returned with their ninth studio album, A Celebration of Endings. And we recently go a mix of them both, in one of the most… let’s say memorable, Live Lounges to date.

Our local artists, as always have been churning out the goods, with Greater Manchester’s Cabbage and Leeds’ The Calls, both releasing new tracks and the stout-hearted Mansfield talent, Georgie, unveiling the sublime debut At Home

We hope you enjoy this August playlist – let us know what you think.
