We've been following Hannah Lou Clark for a number of years now - from her time in infectious-pop-turned-brooding-alt band Arthur to her solo turns as Hannah Shark and FOE. For reasons currently veiled, Hannah's opted for a "new year, new you" approach to her musical outlets, and 'Calamity' is the first proper look (sort of) we've had at her Hannah Lou Clark guise.

BANKS live at Koko, London (1 April '14) // Words: Raman K


Some of the hottest beat-makers across House, Dance and RnB have spent the last year pushing and shoving to produce a track for BANKS. A hot tip for 2014, the LA artist has built her own brand of darker RnB through non-traditional hook-ups with the likes of Shlomo, SOHN, Jamie Woon and TEED. On the final night of her UK tour, BANKS created some spellbinding moments in a set that may have revealed a new genre of alt-RnB.

Sheffield sextet Screaming Maldini have undertaken a bit of a project with their twelve-pronged "Miscellaneum of Wonders" - releasing a new track each month across 2014. Their latest addition, the archaically named 'Abyssinia' (the former name of Ethiopia) envelops itself in a sense of glorious melodrama. Better yet, you can download it for free.

'My Mad Fat Diary'

Words: Saam Das


I don't know what kind of madman/madwoman calls their new EP 'Whigfield Sextape' (presumably referencing the 90s singer) but Fight Like Apes have gone for it. Unless it's one of the most elaborate jokes I've seen in a while. But I guess it is April Fool's Day. Anyway, here's a track from said EP, the vibrant synth-sprinkled 'Crouching Bees'.
