Hard week?  Here are 4 new songs from UK artists to chill out to.  Go hear and be soothed…

Dahlia Sleeps – “Love, Lost”

London quartet Dahlia Sleeps share the third single and title monitor from their forthcoming EP which is launched January 18.

It’s one other moreish launch with delicate, deft tones recalling the likes of Aquilo, London Grammar and Daughter.  Lucy Hill’s vocals shine over stirring, atmospheric textures with the band describing the music as about ‘that feeling of wishing you possibly can resolve the battle for somebody you’re keen on  – however figuring out you don’t maintain the important thing.’

Giovanna – “Let Go Of Yourself”

London-born Giovanna has returned with the primary in a collection of forthcoming tracks after a break from recording.

Her earlier work in movie scores lends a cinematic high quality to what’s already an ethereal pop music about seeing the wonder in purity, and the perimeters of individuals they don’t see themselves.

The Milly and Justin Grange-Bennett-directed video has a well timed nod to Suspira and is an ideal backdrop to the sunshine digital tones and motorik rhythms in addition to the lyrical narrative.  Giovanna’s combined heritage (Italian, Hungarian, English, Scottish, Irish and French) comes throughout in her vocal tones which act as a focus with a spread of emotion.

Caoilfhionn Rose – “Unravelled”

Manchester’s Caoilfhionn (pronounced Keelin) Rose has simply launched this, the shortest music from her Awaken album.  Despite being a kind of songs that ends too quickly (an excellent factor btw!) there’s lots beneath the seeming simplicity.

Driven by a timeless choral vocal loop, her voice delightfully and effortlessly glides between registers and it’s my favorite of the three singles from the album.

Cousin Kula – “Jelly Love”

Cousin Kula are again with their first single after their earlier EP, OODLES.  It’s a dreamy serving of blissed out psych-pop with the ability to offer summery flashbacks.  A suitably wobbly synth is centre of the eye with vocals mixing collectively.

The Bristol band dwell collectively and produce completely different sounds and influences to the desk with the promise to create sonic surprises.  Catch them on their UK tour in December
